It's been a while

You can contribute that to the fact that Justin and I chose not to have internet access at our house. Or the fact that I just haven't felt like it.

Up to you.

I've been well. Happily adjusting to married life.

BTW, I LOVE falling asleep and waking up next to my sweet hubby. BEST part of the day. Even though he likes to cuddle and I like to squirm. And flip. And flop. Like a fish. Numerous times before I fall asleep. He's a very patient man.

Life is starting (just barely) to settle into a routine. Dishes are being done (more than I used to do them), laundry is being done (differently than I used to do it), things are becoming organized, shevles and art have been hung on the wall, numerous different types and styles of curtain have been rejected by me (I still can't decide what curtains I want in the living room, or artwork for that matter), thank you cards are being wrote (we promise they will all be out by Christmas) and life is (slowly) settling.

It's wonderful. It's hard, this getting used to living with a new person, adapting to each others preferences and routines, but it's wonderful.

I've started to feel like Suzy homemaker since the weather has gotten a bit colder. Thus, evidence:

1. I feel like knitting again! There are three beautiful yarn stores near my house that I plan to check out this week.

2. I feel like cooking again! This past week I made Halloween (meatball) soup with baked peach cobbler for dessert. It was yummy. And tonight I've been purusing The Pioneer Woman's website looking for yummy things to cook/bake. I found several.

Like this.
Oh, this one.
And this one.

Yes. Yum.

Sorry. One more.
I couldn't help myself.

3. AND I can't wait to bust out the sewing machine and convert my tab-top closet curtains into cute pocket-top ones and possibly sew up some living room curtains if I can find material I like. Oh yes, I'm itching to start working on my yellow baby quilt again.


I love the fall.
I love being married.
I'm fight my first cold of the winter.
The library is my best friend.
And I am starting to find my way around the North Hills without having to call Justin or Annie to tell me where I am and how to get the heck back to where I'm supposed to be. You know, in the next town or county over.

Life is good. Jesus is sweet.

Psalm 90:17 is my prayer right now for Justin and I as we pray about what life will look like together here in the next few years. We're excited to see what the Lord has in store. He is so faithful and beautiful.

There you go.
Some of the thoughts on my mind. Nothing too deep, just me being me. Hope you're enjoying your fall.
