braemblerose and I have had a very intense past six months. While I could write a long post about each event, this post is about the overall level of change in our lives. Since the start of the year, we've experienced these major events:

  • she is pregnant (I helped)
  • we went on a silent meditation retreat
  • I have a new job
  • I no longer have an appendix
  • we went to my grandfather's funeral
  • we remodeled and sold my old house
  • we bought a new house
  • we went to Burning Flipside
  • we had a wedding and are now married

We certainly experienced heavy stress at times, and I found great irony in being too busy to meditate. However, the way our relationship weathered these events strengthened my desire to spend the rest of my life with her.

We decided to have a small wedding with close family only, but as our lives are settling back down we'll be looking for opportunities to celebrate with friends.

Of course, our lives will get intense again in about three months :)

Congrats on everything (even that appendix thing, I guess...). Sounds like you packed two years into 6 months :)

BTW - I told braemblerose this already, but, I loved the bola tie - it was a perfect choice. The pictures looked wonderful and you both look so happy. Best wishes for the baby and your life ahead, hon.

Holy crap, dude. Sounds like an incredibly eventful time. Been very similar here. Congratulations on the marriage and... everything. :) Glad to hear you're doing better these days.

Where's your new place?

Hey you! I saw you still had my old journal friended. I deleted it but here's my new one in case you want to be friends again... Oh and I have lived in Austin the past 2.5 years, but I just started back into my LJ a few months ago. I read that you were married and had a kid and stuff. That's awesome!
