Yesterday my mom asked if I'd gone on another blog hiatus so I figured it was time to dust off the keyboard and let my fingers do a jig.
I know you're thinking I must have done some extraordinary things over the past few weeks and that's why I haven't made an appearance. But alas. I was just living life.
Last weekend we went to a TU young alum event and had a great time. It's weird reuniting with colleagues who now have grown up jobs, when the last time I saw them they were at a fraternity house yelling obscenities. Ah, the joys of growing up.
So I'm going to give you some unsolicited advice. Get on Amazon or iTunes and order Mumford & Sons latest cd, Sigh No More. Or do you already have it? We were both fans of "Little Lion Man" but Michael bought the cd and we can't stop listening to it. It's strange because it's definitely not a genre I'd typically like (folk??) but it's amazing. Every single song. Below is one of my favorites, "Awake My Soul." I especially love the line, "Where you invest your love, you invest your life." I dare you to listen to it and not breathe a little easier.
The other night Michael and I went to dinner and played the favorites game. I wish I could say all of our discussions are thought-provoking and life changing, but sometimes it's just fun to think about your favorite year in college (his: sophomore, mine: freshman), favorite artist (his: Death Cab mine: MJ), or favorite part of our wedding (his: peeking over the guests to see me walking down the aisle, mine: sharing our vows). Honestly, a lot of the questions we could answer for one another. But it's those questions we've never asked (until that very moment) that make me realize we've barely scratched the surface.
Seriously, marriage is so much fun. As I type this I'm watching Michael dance like an idiot to Mumford & Sons and I'm realizing that maybe, just maybe, this will become a favorite moment. And with that, I'm off to dance (like an idiot) with my husband.
Have a wonderful weekend.
