Putting Away Your High Heels

Sitting with some friends at a coffee shop one morning, I was reminded so much of what my life was 6 years ago. I was a city girl who worked over 40 plus hours a week with a job I hated, and I never used my college degree. I was so lost and didn’t know which direction I was going.  Than a few years down road I met “that man” and then my life would change and many ways. Different points in your life will necessitate change to come in different ways, to varying degree, and you know yourself well enough to know when you are in the right place, and when it might be time to consider a major change.

It was our second date, when he smiled at me across the restaurant table and said “I’m just a country boy”, than I began to fall in love with him. Everything that I was generally attracted to was the exact opposite from this man and I found it to be intriguing. To Shane, city life means crime, pollution, and no solitude. I on the other hand grew up in the city where it was not bad at all and I loved everything about it. And I know, from the top of head to the tips of my pedicured toes in my designer pumps this was going to be a huge change.

Being in a relationship with Shane is adventurous and we are always on the move. There always something going on like mowing for 6 hours on a weekend, outside work that consists of pulling weeds, cleaning up chicken poop, and picking up brush all around the property. With all the hustle and bustle there is always a since of accomplishment at the end of the day. I’d discovered through time that I would rather put away all my designer stuff and wear my jeans that have holes in them just to be able to spend time with him. I’d rather have him take me fishing on a four wheeler, or to watch a sunset and the stars in the back of a truck on a date then to go out to dinner or a movie.

Just a kiss by Lady Antebellum

Lyin’ here with you so close to me
It’s hard to fight these feelings
When it feels so hard to breathe
Caught up in this moment
Caught up in your smile

I’ve never opened up to anyone
So hard to hold back
When I’m holding you in my arms
We don’t need to rush this
Let’s just take it slow

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don’t want to mess this thing up
I don’t want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life
So baby I’m alright, with just a kiss goodnight

I know that if we give this a little time
it’ll only bring us closer
To the love we wanna find
It’s never felt so real
No it’s never felt so right

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don’t want to mess this thing up
I don’t want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life
So baby I’m alright, with just a kiss goodnight

No I don’t want to say goodnight
I know it’s time to leave,
But you’ll be in my dreams

Tonight
Tonight
Tonight

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No I don’t want to mess this thing up
I don’t want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life
So baby I’m alright, oh, let’s do this right

With just a kiss goodnight
With a kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight
