I’m doing my best to get a whole lot better in the romance department.
When I was younger and we were first married, I was not too terrible when it came to being spontaneous and romantic.
But kids, 55 hours inside the zone controlled HVAC of the office and the rest of life sort of got on top of me. But I’m making some changes now that we are in a new chapter in our lives. Our last child was off to college this fall and we are now back to sharing our lives alone together. We love our kids but have also been excited about this chapter in our lives. Life inside the commercial HVAC of work is more manageable now that I’m a senior partner. So I have a lot more time, energy and inclination to do cool stuff for my wife. This past fall, I surprised her with a trip to watch the leaves change from an historic and luxurious inn. This is not the sharing a bathroom type of inn. No this inn even came with a spa. And our room was awesome. It was beautifully decorated and there was every comfort available to us as well. Even the HVAC unit was amazing. The quality heating and air that came from one small ductless heat pump was truly amazing. I couldn’t get over just how quiet but totally powerful that ductless heat pump was. The whole trip was something sort of epic and the romantic surprise really helped us get our feet under us now that we’re empty nesters.
