Some people may wonder, not a lot of people mind you, but some may wonder where I’ve been the two months. I even noticed that it’s been almost three months since my last post. Well, From Mid-October on I was caught up in the whirlwind of my wedding. We were doing all the final planning and trying to get ready for the big day, since time was going so fast. Just too fast. One minute, you have on no make-up and orange hair, gawking at the electronics specialist at Target and the next you think you know, 9 years later you’re marrying him.
December 5th was the day I got married. I remember time whooshing past us so fast. At one time we were newly engaged and had two years to plan a wedding. Then it was dress rehearsal time, rehearsal dinner time and then the big day. Which by the way, it goes as fast as everyone says it does. All you want to do is to stop and drink it in, but that’s hard to do when you’re the center of the attention. You’re the attraction everyone is there to see. I’m so glad we got pictures and video made, to help capture that fast, windy wonderful day.
We’re still at that point where it’s setting in. I’ve had several people ask me how married life was, so far. I always say, trying not to be too mushy while doing so, that I’m happy and I just feel at peace. I told someone close to me recently that most of my life before my husband was a time of learning, growing, expanding and there was just so much activity. I just remember there being constant anxiety and anticipation, it felt like there was this wave or storm of restless energy that was just flowing within me. Meeting my future husband calmed the storms within me and finally marrying him has put me at peace. I think at this time, that is the best way I could possibly put it.
Another feat I tried to accomplish, while planning a wedding, was to compete against myself in the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) It’s basically a challenge to write 50,000 in 30 days. This occurs every November. It’s been going on for years and I just learned about it this past year. Wish I had known about it sooner. I underestimated the task and sort of procrastinated, causing me to only reach 15,000 words. I will not let that get me down, I will accomplish the goal this year. Being my first year of marriage, I want to accomplish as many good things as I can.
