For starters if anyone had told me around this time last year that I would have had two surgeries within the course of four months I’d have thought they were mad. I’ve always been fairly healthy and the one surgery I anticipated having this year was supposed to fix everything major. Unfortunately things were not meant to go that way, but I’m recovering well from the surgery in July and praying that I will not need another ever again. In addition, if someone had told me that I’d be married a year later to one of my best friends (particularly the one that always seemed like more of a big brother to me)… I’d have looked at them like”yeah right!”. However, life has a funny way of throwing you curve balls, some good and some bad.

It took a few years for me to realize that I already knew and was friends with the love of my life but I’m glad that both of us finally came to that conclusion. I’ll spare the back story of how we ended up together because it’s already been covered in a previous post but even with us FINALLY getting together we never thought we’d be married a few months later. I have no doubts or regrets on our mutual decision because we both knew what we wanted in a spouse and knew we were ready to start our forever together. Getting married just made it more official and also helps with knowing that if I have any more medical issues before I find a job that I’ll be covered. I sincerely wish that my health were better and that it wasn’t as much of a concern but it is and we have to accept that fact.

We were planning on getting married at some point irregardless so we just had to speed up the timeline a bit. That being said… we still intend to have a big ceremony sometime next year because many of our family and friends would like to see a proper wedding and lets be honest so would we. I’m looking forward to having my father walk me down the aisle just as much as he wants to see it. We have also decided to save our written vows for the big ceremony too… I’m a little intimidated about that because my hubby can drop amazing poetry in an effortless fashion whereas I tend to get writer’s block.

In addition to this new chapter of my life that has barely begun with my husband, I also made a move to Georgia. I am missing my home state of Texas quite a bit already but I imagine as more time passes it won’t be so bad.  The biggest issue I have is missing my father but aside from that I’ve been really happy here. I get to see my husband everyday now and get love and cuddles whenever I want. I also get to have coffee on demand courtesy of K-Cups and the Keurig 2.0… I held off on getting one for the longest because I knew I’d have one once I finally moved out here, lol. Its funny how the little things can bring you so much joy!

I anticipate that I will be posting on here a bit more since I’ve moved. I now have an actual office to work in as well as motivation from my husband to write more both on here and on my extravagantGEEK blog. I’m very excited for what the future holds.

P.S. Shout out to my hubby for ALWAYS being so supportive of me through both the good and the bad. You proved the “in sickness and in health” part of our vows long before we said I do and you’ve stayed by my side incessantly when most people would not and I appreciate that more than you could ever know.
