incense burning, canon digital rebel xti
I have some cool things to share about my girly weekend but I am taking time to marinate in it all today as I walk around to pick up the remnants of our sweet time together.
One thing I will share is that I burned almost a whole box of incense while Boho Boy was gone. Burning incense used to be an integral part of my every day until I met him. As much as he digs the smell and the energy, he's allergic to it. Well, at least we haven't found one that doesn't send him into a fit of stuffed noses and headaches. A small thing for me to let go of for such an amazing guy.
Although, this weekend as the nag champa floated around my home I found myself reconnecting with a part of me that is very sacred. Something I can relish in during our times apart. Rather than it being a part of my every day, it can now be a ritual to reinforce my belief that I am not just a part of a couple but also very much an individual.
side note: For those of you that missed it the first time around, the documentary Crazy Sexy Cancer is airing again tonight on the Discovery Health Channel at 8 PM ET/PT and will repeat itself at 11 PM ET/PT. I have her book and am devouring it.
