This Saturday Matt and I celebrated 11 years together. He is a joy and my favorite friend. He is a big part of Personal Euphoria because Matt encouraged me to take the leap and quit my day job to start PE and begin teaching Pilates full time.
One of our favorite pastimes is to stroll around Old Wethersfield. We love doing it so much we moved here. In all our travels we have yet to find a town where we enjoy walking as much. Not only does Old Wethersfield have such a quaint New England feel, but it’s flat and you can walk forever. We have a three mile and five mile loop that we do regularly. In my experience it’s hard to find a place where you can walk on sidewalks, have great views. and walk that far without repeating yourself.
Walking is good for our health, but it’s also good for our minds. If we walk three miles, that’s an hour of conversation. Matt has a much better memory than I do, but I love to read a lot more than he does. So I will often read novels and tell Matt about them on our walks. Years later he will remember all the characters and what happened. I remember nothing. He impresses me all the time.
I hope that fifty-five plus years from now we are still walking and talking.
