In order to FULLY explain to you all where I’ve been the past few months, well, I’d have to write two months worth of blog posts…So instead of inundating you all with the every day details of life that I find so very fascinating (because I’m living them!), I’ve decided to spare you and write a quick “wrap-up” post to catch up and get current – it may sound silly, but you readers feel like friends, and it feels a bit strange just to drop off the edge of the earth without at least a little explanation! But then I promise – time to move on to the real purpose of this blog, which although personal, isn’t a personal diary ;)
That being said…here’s a peek into the last few months of life around here – it’s been a pretty exciting time in our lives!
1. The original reason for my disappearance was this: Captain America and I FINALLY went on our Honeymoon! That’s right, after 6 months we finally got it scheduled, and the first two weeks of March were spent driving down the California Coast line enjoying the sites and the towns a long the way. Ferndale, San Francisco, Monterey, Mendocino, Santa Barbara, Hollywood, Marina del Rey, and finally to Sacramento where we stopped by and met up with some of his family (including his 102 year old great-grandmother!!) and my family (where got to meet my best friend’s 3 day old baby daughter! Squeeee!). Originally I planned on sharing all the details of our trip with you – much like I did when we went on our last road trip – but so much has happened since we’ve been back, I just never got around to it!
2. Then, as soon as we got back from our honeymoon, it was time to jump straight into more wedding preparations, because my OTHER best friend just got married! Congratulations Mrs. Holmes!!! It was an absolutely beautiful day – the best day of the year up to that point – and I couldn’t be happier to have had the opportunity to share the day with her, her new husband, and both of their happy families!!
3. And now for the bombshell, and the No. 1 reason I disappeared for so long! Ready?? Scroll down to find out!!
That’s right! Just a few days after my best friend’s wedding, and a week after we returned from our honeymoon, Captain America and I found out that we’re going to have a baby! It came as a total shock to us both, since we weren’t planning on planning for children for at least another year – but we absolutely couldn’t be happier about this little surprise!
Unfortunately, along with this little blessing, I have also been “blessed” with the most excruciating “morning” sickness in the entire world, which has left me basically immobile on the couch for the past month, sucking on ice cubes. I say “morning” sickness in quotations, because it’s not relegated to the morning at all, in fact, it’s an all day punishment that never lets up. Luckily my husband is awesome and has been taking fantastic care of me. However, looking at the computer screen makes it much, much worse – which is the main reason for my long absence. Well, that and the fact that ever since we found out, I’ve had nothing but baby on the brain and I haven’t even been able to think of writing about anything else – so I kinda had to wait to write anything at all until we were ready to make the formal announcement!

So there you have it folks! It’s been quite a busy few months in this little corner of the world, and in about 6 more months it’s about to get a whole lot busier!
I can’t wait for all that life is about to bring our way; and with it, the inspiration that all of love and happiness (okay, and the bad days and the tears) will provide me!
It really is a wonderful life!
