You strode across the street with grace and purpose, briefly turning your head to check for traffic. There were a couple of other guys with you, a few steps behind. You looked on a mission. Determined. I sipped my beer and watched you, smiling to myself at your purpose. I had seen you in a photo a week ago and there you were, in real life. In color. Your ego taking up every bit of space around you.

There are some moments that define us. A before, and an after. I couldn't have known, listening to you laugh over the loud music, that you would be my husband. That you would stand beside me as we brought our daughter into this world. That life would never be the same.

I am so glad that I have ridden out these 6 years, with you. That we have weathered storms, celebrated triumphs, laughed, cried, hugged, kissed and stayed

Here's to infinity. And gravity. And all those other things we can't see but know are there.

Always, xo

From the depths of Mommyhood

I arise!

It's been ages since I posted. I actually had to jump through thousands of hoops to find my password and log back in. I've read through my archives (also known as my life) and I've laughed, cringed, teared up and remembered. It's weird to have a written account of my life these past 6 plus years. But it's good. And I'm ready to re-enter this whole blogging world. I mean, I can only watch so much Little Mermaid.

I have a husband now, and a daughter who will be TWO in March! What? How did that happen. I'm a real life Wife and Mama. More on those two later :)

For now I'll be trying to remember how to be creative. And where ARE my keys?

*Greeting a vendor at work today for a co-worker who is out of the office*

"Hi ****, so good to see you!"
"You too, thanks for meeting with me."
"Sure. So sorry that ***** couldn't be here today. She hurt herself."
*blank stare*
"I mean, she didn't kill herself or anything. Not like that. It's her leg."
*forced laughter* "I'm sure she'll be fine! And if she had killed herself I definitely wouldn't have told you like this. I mean...not that there's a good way to tell someone that. Or that you would even want to know."
"Ok...well...let's talk toys!"
