Update after a long break!

I'm sorry about the long pause...  I've been very busy.

On the positive side, I'm an old married woman now!  Living with my husband in the country has been awesome!  I have a large vegetable garden and love watching it grow.  I can see the cows all the time.  I'm training our blue heeler mix to herd cows more effectively.

On the sad side, my best friend died in a car crash on the way to the rehearsal dinner.  I miss her terribly.  We had been friends since first grade so I don't have many memories that don't include Jess.

The most important lesson I've learned over these few weeks is that I can be happy and sad at the same time.  I can rejoice in my first tomatoes ripening and hurt when I can't share that with Jess.  Neither feeling minimizes the other.  I miss Irish dance with Jess and find myself laughing at the antics of the young steers in the pasture out front.
