Hopeful for the Future
Apparently I'm at that stage of a new relationship where I wonder where this is going and I start daydreaming. I've always been a very typical girl at this stage of things, once I've accepted that Boy and I really like each other, I'm confident that we'll have some sort of future together, and I start daydreaming about where things will go. About this time seven years ago I was deciding how my first name sounded with my husband's last, even down to scrawling it on my notebook. I'm a giant cliché.
But this time there's no map. I don't know what a future looks like in this case, and now I'm kind of trying to think about possibilities for I want me and my husband, and my boyfriend, my girlfriend-in-law and her other boyfriend to end up. Oh, of course it's early for decisions, but I do catch myself daydreaming on different levels. Do I see a future full of regular trips to visit each other back and forth, the occasional vacation with my boyfriend? Or a duplex somewhere far away from here, with my friend and her little vee in one half, me and my husband in the other? It's fun to dream about, and I'm curious what other possibilities are out there.
So I ask you, tell me your daydreams. Or, for those of you who are deeper into this than I am, what's your life look like?
