If you’ve seen Groundhog’s Day, you understand the concept of a day that loops. If you don’t, here’s the trailer to that movie.
Yesterday, I wrote about what day of my childhood I would loop over again. Now let’s focus on the second part of my life. I like to call this section, with Lisa Marie before children.
I met Lisa Marie in 2001 when we were both coaches for a high school cross country team. We were engaged in 2002. We got married in 2003.
That’s a picture of our wedding day. No, I wouldn’t loop that day over and over again. Getting married is a little nerve wracking, with the church service, the big party, and everything. I loved it, but once was enough.
After we were married, two years later, Lisa gave birth to our first child in 2005. So we had about four years before someone depended on us. This part of my life was short, but it was electrifying.
The day I would loop would be on our Honeymoon. I think it was the second day when we were in Jamaica. We got a couples massage in the morning, and then time slowed down. Everything was wonderful after that. As the Jamaican’s told us, “Now you’re on Jamaican Time, Mon.” I could loop that day for a year. Beautiful weather, my beautiful wife, and some nice cold beverages by the beach. That night, we ate dinner on the beach. The tide was coming in, and we didn’t move. We sat at our table and let the waves wash over our feet as we drank a bottle of wine.
Do you have a day with your significant other that you would loop for a year? What day would it be? Where were you? I’ve noticed that both days that I’ve picked involve warm weather and water. I think I need to make some changes in my life!
