Hello there Friends, Family, Anyone who may be interested.
I am beginning this blog for a few reasons. First, our friends and family are scattered all over the planet and my hope that everyone I love will spontaneously decide to pick up there life and move to Colorado is rapidly starting to fade. I have come to terms with the fact that this dream may actually never come to fruition.
Second, secretly I have envied the blogs of my loved ones. I have admired from afar the ability of one to put themselves out there for better or for worse. I thoroughly enjoy reading people's blogs who are real. I have recently been feeling bit of a pull to share myself with the online world. Thus you can expect a bit of reality in this blog.
Finally, I just got married! On March of this year Rob and I began our mini-family in wedded bliss in Costa Rica. I want this blog to serve as a record of our adventures as we encounter them as well as other random things we are interested in.
Now, if you aren't interested in reading about any sappy love stuff you can stop reading now...
Please pardon me as I go off on a tangent about my new husband, but I love this guy. He is humble, patient, kind, loving and he always makes me laugh if/when I get stressed out. I have to say after years on the dating scene and LOTS of married friends offering unsolicited advice I began to grow obstinate to cliches and advice. I was completely fine with living out my life single or without ever tying the knot.
Enter Rob, who turned that philosophy upside down. As much as I don't want to admit it all that silly advice from married folks seemed to play out. "When you know you know", "If he is the right guy you will move to the moon for him", "It will just feel right." Dang you married people. I guess you do know a thing or two about relationships.
When I think about our love a Bruce Lee quote is brought to mind...well ok, I looked it up but it still fits. I pray that our flame follows this metaphor put forth by the Karate legend
“Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable"
