I am not even going to try to make excuses for why it has been so long since my last post. I have tons of ideas- they just aren't making their way onto this page. I wish I knew why, but I don't. I guess this is what they could call "blogger's block."
Seriously though, I have so many post ideas. But for some reason when I get home from work, I immediately move onto other things and before I know it, it is 1 a.m. and I'm sound asleep on the couch. Not kidding.
I don't know what has gotten me in to this no writing funk, but I know the only thing that will get me out is to force myself to write until it becomes natural again. That's how my crazy brain works. I promise, I'll get those posts I've been hinting about out soon. In the meantime, here is a quick recap of life these days- which I've categorized (only my list-making friends can understand...)
Married Life: isn't that much different from non-married life. I wish I could say that there is a magical something that happens, but other than getting used to a new last name, life is pretty much the same as when we had simply been dating for a decade and living in sin. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE being married, but I think more than the ring and license, I just love being in love with Brian.
The Wedding: Is still being talked about, almost three months later. I think that will be the case for quite some time. Traditional or not (definitely not) we made a statement. And with that, I promise to get on the final honeymoon posts, as well as share more wedding photos and a special post about how we designed all of our own wedding stationery.
The House Is amazing. We absolutely love having all of the space, a yard, a basement (with a built in bar!) and a two car garage, which has now become home to a climbing wall and a motorcycle. More on both of those to come...
My Filofax: Is still my same old personal Malden, which I've been using for a year and a half now. I'm also still on my Franklin Covey DPP inserts, which I've been using since January. I'll be switching to the FC 2DPP in 2013, a decision you can read about here and here. I'll do a little post on that after I make the switch some time in December!
Arts & Crafts: I'm still making cards, but mainly only on an as needed basis, i.e. for thank you notes, baby showers, and the like. One of these days I'll get around to a massive card making session. I'm also still crocheting a lot, but haven't been able to update the blog since I'm bouncing from one project to the next. The afghan in my "currently" section has been on the back burner for ages. I'm about to finish my second baby blanket for a shower (for twins!) that I'm attending on Saturday, then after that I'll be making Brian a new hat since he lost the one I already made him. I know that damn thing will show up the second I finish this one! Then it's back to baby blankets, as one of my good friends is due with her second next June, and I want a good head start so I'm not stitching at the last second.
That was a bit longer than I expected. See? Forcing myself to sit down and write is really the way to go for me when I'm in a writing funk. I'll be back soon with more posts, including lots of pictures! I'm waiting to get my Life Proof iPhone case in the mail, so I'm hoping to be able to do more "real life" photos, like climbing, cooking (hey, I get messy) and the like. Stay tuned!
