I just got through two paragraphs, reading a blog about relationships, and suddenly realised my husband and I have been together for almost 27 years. “Why are we so happy with each other, so happy together?” my husband asked me earlier today.

Bliss, for me, is being present in the … Continue reading Loving where you’re at
