It's nice to be in a relationship and to be given the gift of time.
Time for "us" to evolve;
without the push toward marriage and children that existed at an earlier stage of life.
The sense of "been there, done that" removes the urgency to pigeonhole our relationship into a neat, tightly defined societal slot.
The luxury of letting it be what it is, at any given moment, knowing that it's open to change is, I suppose, both the good news and the bad news.
For right now, it feels like a wonderful place to be.
