A Booze Cruise.

"Something's Gotta Give" One Republic

I guess you know it's been a good night when you're in the arms of your lover, overlooking the water, high heel broken, hair a mess, tipsy from the drink but feeling free as a bird. Yes. These nights come few and far between lately but how I soak them up. Life has consumed us with being parents and working and other projects that we have recently begun and blah, blah, blah….It was nice to catch up and take each other in a bit.

Ty was invited to a company booze cruise and I was excited to get some time away with him and do something different. It's been awhile since I've been on a booze cruise. Probably over 6 years ago. I adore date nights. Nights that we can be that couple that met 5 years ago to the day this September 11th.  I can't believe it's been that long! With all that we've had going on lately, it's pretty easy to lose track of romance. It's go-go-go all week long and everything simple and worthy of my time seems to slip through the cracks. Lately I've been glued to the Time-Hop App. Five years ago, around this time, Ty and I were just discovering each other and I've been living vicariously through the app, reliving all those glorious days.
 Days like this and this and this.
They bring feelings flooding back. Those memories hold such spark and life. I love to think back on them. Aaaaand…..this gets me longing for those feelings once again….which is where our nights out come in. That's me, constantly trying to find ways to relive those days of passion. Some may think that it's silly. I think it's a good thing. I'm not out cheating or flirting. I'm thinking back on the beginning of our relationship and I'm keeping that fire burning. I loathe mundane. I can't do ruts. So I water my grass and make it greener. After all, I'd be stupid to let this man escape.

We showed up to a pretty little boat, modest in size but with inviting lights and character. The boat launched from The Port of Albany and although I was hesitant about what it would be like floating down the Hudson River, to my surprise it was really quite pretty. We talked over drinks on the front of the boat and then laughed as I did my "I'm the king of the world" re-enactment. I take advantage of the moments. The moments where we can just look at each other and just be Lauren and Ty, in love. By the end of the night, we had made our way to the back of the boat and I had Ty wrapped around me as we sipped the last of our drinks. We didn't talk much at the end of the night. We just sat together quiet. I laid my head on his chest and it felt good. 

Sometimes Ty and I can just sit together silently-no need to say a word because we know everything is just how it's supposed to be.

I feel lucky a lot. I say that often I know, but I feel compelled to say it. From where I've been, this is pretty damn perfect and I'd be a fool to not be thankful…Anyhow, it was a good night on that booze cruise. I'm taking this one down in the books as: a night to remember.
