I know, it's been a while. How have you been? Have you missed me? I've missed you. I've thought about you a lot too. The truth is, I'm a little intimidated by you. I wan to write wonderful posts, but I get scared that I'm not up to wonderful posts. I was hoping to make this a place full of brilliant thought and reflection about what it means to get married, to join your life with another's. But I haven't known exactly how to put into words everything that I'm feeling.
Shawn and I, we've been married nine months now. Can you believe it? I can't! I am still giddy just looking at my ring and thinking he's mine now. And a lot has happened in those nine months. And I've wanted a place to record all those things that have happened, like the time our house got invaded by may flies, or the time we made pickles and I sliced my fingers open. I wanted to share those things with you dear blog. But then I thought, you don't want to hear about those boring parts of life. You want great thoughts, introspection. Well, Blog. I think you DO want to hear those things, and maybe sharing those things will bring about some of the introspection too. And I want a place to look back on my first year(s) of marriage and remember what it was like to be a newlywed.
So, what do you think Blog? I promise to visit you more often, and you put up with my self-indulgent posts about making raspberry jam and trips to Wyoming. OK? Is it a deal?
Love you, and see you more often.
