New Phases

We have recently become 'a retired couple'

Inside I am just getting into my stride in this life!

And its good for us to have it together.
I just don't want it to become a lifestyle.
Neither does he.
Its going to be a fascinating new phase of the journey for us.

Oh Allie I envy you! I hope that Grant and I are one day blessed to be able to live just the kind of life you are living right now :-)
