Married Life/How I met my wife

I was just reminded by my wife that we have now been married for one month.  Wow, in some respects, it doesn’t seem like it has been that long, and yet at the same time, it seems like we have been together much longer than that.

I don’t really know what it is like for others, but I suspect that our marriage is not (and will not be) your typical marriage.  For one thing, Sarah and I didn’t fall in love the way it seems most other couples do.  Most couples seem to have some cutesy story about how they fell in love and how it was love at first sight.  We first met while working as delivery drivers at Tobin’s Pizza in Bloomington IL (Phenomenal Pizza btw, if you are ever in Bloomington, order a Family sized pizza and get a small for only a dollar more).  It wasn’t until two years later, after having gone our own separate ways, that we reconnected and started hanging out again.  We didn’t start out dating right away, but we eventually got around to it.

New Blog

Alright, so here we are.  It is 2011, I’m 26 years old, in the midst of my second year of college, and I am finally getting around to actually starting my own blog (I know, I know, but what can I say, I started late cause I was partying quite hard during the “normal” college years and didn’t have time for things like studying and college back then).  I don’t know exactly how this will turn out, let alone whether people will actually read the things I post, but hey, I didn’t start this to be popular and have a ton of posts (though I did intend to put my thought out there in the public and see what others think).

Anyways, I think I will have to spend some time editing this thing before it feels like home, but here is to a new outlet for my thoughts.

Cheers!
