A New Beginning

This is me, returning to my writing.

It's been a long time, and so much has happened in these last months. It's really exciting to think of how impossible it would be to do a re-cap post. I couldn't possibly put it all down into one post. And honestly, words couldn't really capture the beauty of it all.

So in the hopes to at least slightly record those dark ages...

The wedding planning was delirious. There's not a chance in this world I could have pulled it off without my wonderful Mom and Dad, my talented sister-in-law, and my perfect maid of honor. They really wrapped the incredibly beautiful bow around the whole package.

The actual wedding was better than anything I've ever experienced. It was the thing dreams are made of, only none of my dreams ever compared...it was so good! Our ceremony was short but personal, and very emotional. The reception was awesome- the perfect mood and setting. I cried at least three times and danced the night away with my loving husband.

The honeymoon was unreal. One week in Cancun, basking in the sun at an all-inclusive resort. One week at Disneyworld, reminiscing about our Disneyland engagement. So relaxing and so fun at the same time.

We own a home! Our amazing 3 bedroom plus a den, 2 bathroom, single level with a pebble-tec pool just about a mile away from my favorite shopping mall and a freeway that will take you wherever you want to go dream house is superb. We're loving setting up house, furnishing, decorating, the lot!

We saw a Reproductive Endocrinologist who told us that the only way I can have babies is by IVF...mainly because my endometriosis is too aggressive to actually take me off of birth control for long enough to get pregnant. So with that in mind, we've decided to take 6 months to just be married- not really talk about it too much, and then in April we will sit down and have the talk. We'll decide if that's the right time to look into it and get started or if we want to wait longer. It won't be easy, with my brain tumor I have to do a bunch of other tests as well to make sure that it won't get bigger when I do get pregnant, etc... but it will all be worth it in the end. We just need to make sure we're in the right state of mind going into the whole thing.

And work is all a big learning experience. I'm a supervisor now, and everyday is a new lesson. I love that, and I hate that at the same time. I do enjoy actually being "good" at something...but I'll get there.

Finally, I'm training for a Half Marathon!!! Yeah, you heard me. I've lost about 30 pounds and I'm running (up to 6 miles at a time at this point). I have about 40 days until the big race, and I'm excited, scared, and pumped all at the same time.

So that's enough from the past. I'll be back, don't you worry. Everyday there is something to write, something to remember, something to share. I'll meet you here.

WOW!!! There HAS been a lot going on! Great to hear from you. I was shocked when I saw your blog had been updated. :)

CONGRATS on the wedding, house and weight loss! Good luck on the 1/2 marathon.

Enjoy your time together. You've got a little bit of an advantage in that you know what's going on inside and you know the meds are doing okay at controlling it. I have enjoyed every second of our marriage together. It's nice to have that time. TTC can be a very emotional ride, so, just take it one day at a time. Sounds like you have everything lined up as far as resources go when you are ready!
