I wanted to give a quick update. My holiday weekend was WONDERFUL. A-Train is amazing. We had the best time together…
A-Train and I drove up to Napa early Friday afternoon. Spent 2 glorious days in Yountville, CA. Stayed at the Bardessono Resort & Spa (unbelievable – one of the nicest places I have ever stayed), had dinner with his son and his son’s girlfriend on Friday, spent time together on Saturday (went rollerblading thru wine country), drove home on Sunday. It was an incredible weekend – spectacular company, delicious food, amazing scenery, fantastic bike rides. We obviously couldn’t get enough of each other because we ended up spending Sunday and Monday together as well. Our weekend ended this morning….. 😉
I am so happy that I let go of the past, got over the age/looks reservation, because honestly, I would have missed out on this opportunity. Even though there is a 20 year age difference, A-Train and I have a lot in common:
- We have kids relatively the same age – his son is 24, my AbFab is 22
- We have the same moral compass – respect others, respect ourselves, honest to the bone, transparent
- We are both nurturers
- We are both hilarious and make each other laugh
- We can have deep conversations about politics, religion, and the world at large
What more could any woman ask for? A man who cares, that can show he cares, is nice to everyone around him, is witty and intelligent, makes me laugh so hard my belly aches, , and is an expert bike rider?
I know, I know, it’s new, it’s exciting, it’s fresh. But thinking about him makes me smile, and I WANT to spend more time with him. AND he wants to spend more time with me. The more time we spend together, the fewer reservations I have. For now, I will bask in the glow of a fabulous weekend with a wonderful person and leave it at that. I will spend as much time with him as I can before I leave for Florida next week… as a matter of fact, he is picking me up in 30 minutes and we are going to run errands and have dinner. So domestic, I love it!
I have also made up my mind on my New Year’s Resolutions… I will get them out and make them “official” by weeks end.
Lastly, I promise to write a post about A-Train – how we met (CLicious introduced us while we were Happy Houring it at our favorite restaurant/bar), when we met (early November), his nicknames for me (“sunshine” and “my little treasure”), and what I’ve learned both about him and myself thru this new adventure.
My dear Paula good things come to great people. You sound a little smitten but i wont jinks it True it’s the honeymoon period but that’s a great place to be. My advise, like you actually need any, take that bike for a real long steady ride and see where you land. Also embrace a healthy domestic involvement not one that is fueled with lighter fluid but by mutual enjoyment. I am so so happy for you. Bask long and hard in the sunshine, you deserve it.
Be well H.S.
First, yay you for starting off 2012 with such unbridled promise!
Second, are you aware of what a “bang” is in the UK? I only ask because you might find that your UK readers are *especially* pleased for you if you see what I mean.. 🙂
God, I LOVE it!!
