the king of cute...

Check out this little man who has a habit of making my heart turn into a puddle and my voice change into a funny high pitched noise that just isn't normal.

oh goodness.

i am in need of no reminder... i have been told and retold that i am awful at this.

i rarely update and when i do my posts lack the enthusiasm that i wish they had.

life gets in the way. as i am sure it does with everyone else too but somehow, someway they make it work. my fellow bloggers sit down, spill their guts, say their piece, hit publish and walk away to scratch one more thing off their to do list.

i can't even find my to do list. let alone my computer.

our office is a disaster zone (not to say that my husbands afternoon spent cleaning went to waste because he did a great job - i can now see the top of his desk and can get to mine without tripping over something). but disaster zones and i do not mix. oil and water. so i avoid the office, which makes me avoid the computer, and my little hopeful blog gets ignored once again.

when we moved into our wonderful apartment this room became the "i don't know where this goes or what to do with it" room. everywhere else is comfy and warm and everything a home that contains sarah and brendon should be. and it isn't so much that we have neglected our duties as responsible apartment owners (which means you use your space wisely because there isn't much) but it really boils down to...almost three months ago we go hitched, took a little vacation and a deep breath. no sooner than we crossed over the ohio michigan border did i get a call for a job interview. then that process began and god blessed me with an amazing job. i worked the old and the new for about a week during which my sister decided to have her baby.

now i am playing catch up. learning the new job and giving most of my energy. the rest gets poured into brendon. and everyone else gets leftovers....sorry!

i will get back on track. soon. i promise. i think it will all begin with cleaning this darn office.

we did however take a brief road trip to visit the in-laws in celebration of my dear husbands birthday. we did an orchard day. take a look.

i thought i would be better at this.

when i sat down with the best of intentions to writewritewrite it seems that the pace of my life changed drastically. i'm not sure if it has anything to do with getting married, becoming an aunt, changing jobs and moving but those could all be factors.

i am beginning to get a rhythm. i will have to add updating this to my agenda.

don't lose all hope. i will return.

Friday, July 25, 2008

my life is packaged, shrink wrapped and tucked in corners all over this apartment. this project began with great order. there was a system as to why that went in this bag and why that got tossed and why that is still sitting where it has been for the last month. then i got tired. after three days of spending every second of my spare time stuffing things in boxes i got sick of cardboard and newspaper and most of all my stuff. so the system went out the window and blew away in the summer breeze. so today i tossed, i taped and danced to the music.

and i got a lot done. although i have no idea where anything is or what fills each box i just know that my drawers are empty, shelves naked and my room has been decorated with a great shade of light brown.

sunday is moving day. the troops are coming in and with trailers and trucks we will move this mountain.

wish us well.

3 weeks.

I always thought that i would be one of those girls that documents their wedding journey for the world to see. Complete with pictures, a cute countdown, and all the juicy details. I thought that would be me, because i live for these things. i love to plan and create. to make order in chaos, to organize the clutter, and color coordinate while i am at it.

but these girls are crazy. i can't begin to imagine where they find the bits of time here and there to dedicate to updating an eager crowd with all the details of their big day and big life to follow.

i think i feel myself sliding into a crazy chair, probably wearing a crazy hat and mismatched clothes - making me quite the crazy girl...

not that i will fill your time with little details of my wedding. but i think it will feel good to write again.

let me start with the crazy...
so three weeks from this moment i will be a bayley. my name will change, my family will grow and i will be a half of a whole. my feelings at this moment are eager anticipation. the details are organized in a 3 ring binder, people are coming out of the woodwork to show their love to brendon and i, and i have a dress.

21 days and counting...
get ready, here we come.
