Here I am, taking a deep breath for the first time in what feels like forever.
I’ve been gone from WordPress a little over a month now. A month filled to the brim with all sorts of emotions, endless reunions and goodbyes, beginnings and ends, lots of hugs and crying and long car rides. I quit my job this month. I welcomed dozens of loved ones into South Carolina, greeted them with eyes brimming over and long, long hugs. I got married, too, became a “Mrs.” and took a new name. And then I embarked on my honeymoon, leaving all those lovely people with a wave from the car amidst a sparkler farewell. Days later, and I’m back to pack up the contents of my life, and in a matter of hours, will say goodbye to my childhood home. Early Tuesday morning, Will and I will load up the car and drive 1,200 miles across the country to start life anew.
As I said, it’s been quite a month.
I have so many things to tell you… I can’t wait to get started.
But for now, let’s begin with a picture.
Our first dance. The beginning, really, of everything.
p.s. We have Nancy Ray Photography to thank for the lovely snapshot. You’ll see more of her work as we get it.
