It is autumn in New Zealand.
Mr. Veggie and I just spent a weekend away for his birthday.
We visited with friends, some newly married, one recently widowed.
They helped us dive into deep conversations about marriage, our relationship, and our future.
We asked each other difficult questions, revealed fears, and explored dreams in a way we haven't done since we were first dating.
It felt so good to take time out and reconnect again.
We should do it more often.
We are in love.
