Five minute Friday – Together


Where a few weeks ago there was fear in doing this, now I really look forward to this where I get to write and not overthink…..This is the Five Minute Friday Challenge hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker.

You get to write for 5 minutes with no editing, no over thinking, and no backtracking. This week’s word is: Together


Tonight, I could just burst with excitement. As we celebrate your birthday, together just the two of us, away for the night tonight.

Hasn’t been just the two of us together since that little bundle entered our lives 2 years ago.

Except together takes on a whole new meaning now….together is us, three, family. Our together tonight will be awesome but will be a bit like we’re missing a limb and integral part. Funny how something so little can be such a big part in such a short time… if the us never existed….

It’s funny how our together has changed….bettered itself…..funny how together 2011 was so different from together 2013.

I miss the us of 2011 somewhat…long for it, the stillness….. and see tonight as the start of reviving a little of the us.

But know that at the same time I will long and ache for my ginger and think of him often and imagine me scooping him up, slender arms wrapped tightly around my neck, wiggling into me.

I miss us but I love our new together….I love you and I love the ginger with all my heart and that makes me burst too with joy and excitement at the beautiful journey through life together.

    Beautiful! What an interesting writing exercise; I’ve got to try it. Sometimes we just need that push to fill the page. It’s always easier to delete what’s there than fuss about what to put in.

    Great piece Lauren. So true. Well captured as it speaks for most couples who have a child.
