i love bike riding in jersey.

mostly because when we get out to a place like this, it doesn’t feel like we’re in jersey anymore! :)

and it’s “our thing”. you know? it’s something active that we do together. we’ve noticed that this is HUGE in our married life. if we don’t have activities that are fun for both of us to do together, our relationship is less vibrant.

but, if we have something fun that we both get up early for and are excited to do together, it’s so life giving! our friendship grows and it’s almost like we’re dating again ;)

this is usually my view:: Husbuddy waiting for me.

so…even though i’m not as good as Husbuddy, and he has to wait for me(mostly because i make him so i don’t like feeling too left behind!) we’re still both having a grand ol’ time.

we become even better friends by doing “our thing” together on a regular basis. in Idaho, “our thing” was back packing and hiking. here in Jersey there isn’t as much of an opportunity for that, so we’ve picked this up. (we both used to mt. bike when we were growing up) and we’ve loved getting out in nature together since we were dating.

ha, and i love that i get to see him in his element. i can imagine what he was like as a junior high boy, so excited to try that next jump.

(because yes, folks- he road multiple of those platforms and jumped off of multiple hills that i steered very clear of.)

what kind of activities do you guys do together with your other to grow your friendship?

dear Husbuddy, thank you for being my bestest friend and for taking me mountain biking :)
