It was AH-MAZING. I’ll post details of our trip later, when I’ve finally recovered from the jet lag. It’s been three days and I’m STILL tired from the plane ride. Champagne problems, eh?

I’m baaaack!

Hey! Hi!

::waving frantically:

So, um. It’s been a little while, huh? Yeah, I know. And I wish I had some awesomely awesome excuse, like I was traipsing the country helping poor, starving children carry water in giant jugs across the Sahara to help some baby pandas locate their mother before they’re eaten by Komodo dragons…or something like that. ¬†Unfortunately, it was nothing like that. I just didn’t feel like writing. In fact, I didn’t feel like doing much of anything. It took awhile, but a few weeks ago I finally realized I had a problem. And that problem was me. These last several months I found myself constantly distracted, jaded, selfish, stressed out and just a general pain in the ass. I found joy in almost nothing – at least nothing good for me – and it wasn’t long before I looked in the mirror and thought “You are not a good person. Who are you?” For the longest time, I attributed my sour attitude to the weather thinking I just had a case of SAD, but when the weather got better and I didn’t, well, something had to change. So I changed it. But not without the help of my incredible husband who by some miracle didn’t divorce me after all I put him through. Marrying him was the best decision I ever made.

And now? Things are SO MUCH BETTER. The weather is nicer, we just celebrated our five year wedding anniversary (IN MAUI!) and I’m starting to enjoy the things I used to like doing – like cooking and yardwork and playing with the dog and being the best possible wife I can be. I’m excited about all the fun things we’re planning for this summer (Mumford & Sons concert, U2 concert, Six Flags, camping, swimming, baseball games, 80’s movie marathons, bonfires, etc.) and I’m learning to savor each day. All these extra daylight hours should not go to waste! I wait all winter for summer and now that it’s here, I want to make the most of it.

And of course, I want to get back into blogging. Lately I’ve been living my life on Facebook and Twitter and while that’s fun and all, I miss the ability to ramble on and on about anything and everything and not worry about if this or that person sees it.

So, all that to say – I’m back. And feeling better than ever.
