After a brief hiatus from blogging, I'm back! It feels like since we got engaged, we have been travelling nonstop. We went to Salem, Massachusetts this past weekend for the wedding of dear friends (and now I want to steal all their cute wedding ideas for ours). Next weekend is our niece's high school graduation in Charlotte, and the weekend after that is Father's Day which means a trip home to the mountains. Following that is a quick visit to Chapel Hill for wedding stuff and just like that, June is over. Welcome to July. Our pet sitter is making a fortune this month!
Even though its tiring, all this travel is still nice. We're seeing family and friends we don't get to see often, and when I am feeling a little overwhelmed by everything we have going on, I remind myself that this may be the closest we live to our loved ones for a long time, and that I had better enjoy the time I have with them now.
In other news, I have been offered a blogging position at NextGenMilSpouse.com and I could not be more thrilled! I'm now a regular contributor to not one, but TWO blogs (the other is Blinq Bytes). Writing is something I've always loved and enjoyed and secretly wished I could have as a job, and while its definitely not going to make me rich, I can actually say that I get paid to write.
There are a ton of other things I have been jotting down to write about here, but of course now I have no idea where that list is, and my brain is functioning at about 40%. I do not recommend anyone give up coffee unless medically forced to do so. This green tea I'm sipping just isn't cutting it this morning.
Until next time, folks - I'll be just like Willie Nelson in Honeysuckle Rose...On the Road Again.
