Last weekend, Jordan and I got out of the city, along with 28 other married couples from our church, for a marriage retreat. It was a welcomed time of relaxing, laughing, reconnecting with each other, and getting to know people from our community in deeper ways.
Life feels really busy. In fact, one of the reasons why I started this blog was so that I had a way to document life as it sometimes seems to move at a dizzying pace.
You likely feel it too. When asked how we’ve been lately, the answer so frequently starts with, “Busy!” (A habit I’ve worked hard to correct in the past year.) Our schedules are crammed with work obligations and studying and birthday parties and doctors’ appointments and family commitments and full email inboxes and volunteer opportunities — to name a few.
Have you heard of or been to Storm King Art Center? It had been on my radar for awhile, but it certainly had a moment of gaining mass recognition for people even outside of NYC when it was featured in an episode of the show Master of None earlier this year.
Last Friday, Jordan and I rented a car and drove an hour and 15 minutes north of the city to make our first visit there. And while I can’t compare our visit to one we’d make during another time of the year, I’m very confident that nothing could be as magical as visiting Storm King Art Center in the height of the fall.
