How's married life treating you?

I get asked almost every day "How's married life treating you?"... and I usually just laugh and say "about the same."

In many ways, that's very true and not necessarily a bad thing... Kevin and I have lived together for a few years... we moved into our house a month before the wedding, we have the same jobs, same goals, same schedule, same life that we did before we said "I do."

I didn't expect any drastic changes after the wedding and there haven't been.  Our work life, home life and love life are pretty status quo... in a good way.

What I have noticed is that I feel... well... different.  Like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders and I am finally settling in to be the person I was meant to be... me.  I was me before... but now I feel even more "me".  It's very difficult to describe, but it's an incredible feeling.

I am still having a hard time signing my new last name, I still giggle when I get to say "my husband" and get butterflies when Kev calls me his "wife"... but it is becoming a little bit more real every day.  This is real... this is my life...

Taaa-Daaaaa!! I have a blog!

So... I have been toying with the idea of writing a blog for a while... not that my life is sooo super interesting that people are just DYING to read all about it... but more so because my life is pretty well... normal.  I think people can relate to me.  Good, bad, ugly, so terribly crazy that you can't help but laugh (at me or with me).  I work at a job that more often than not drives me bonkers, go to school and am counting the days until my graduation, have an awesome hubby who sometimes drives me so crazy I want to tell him to "Go play in traffic" and have some amazing friends and family that I couldn't imagine my life without.  Sounds a lot like you?  Thought so.

Unlike lots of other blogs I have read, I have no particular focus (cooking, fashion, babies)... but then again, that pretty much fits me.  One day it might be my new favorite recipe, the next a super hot outfit I just closet shopped, the next a vent about how I am sick of the Syracuse snow and ready to move to Fiji.... who knows... this life is a crazy roller coaster ride. 

I can't promise that I will update this daily... or even weekly, because, as you know, sometime life gets in the way of a good blog.  In any case, I will do my best to keep you up to date on the in's and out's of my little world.

I am a wife, a homeowner, a veteran, a student, a (soon-to-be) nurse, a runner, a CrossFit addict, "mom" to an adorable furbaby, a daughter, a sister, a friend.

Next stop, if it's in God's plan, is motherhood... a journey I am thrilled to begin when the time is right... but for right now... I am so amazingly happy to be living this dream life with my amazing hubby.  I am so truly blessed!

Welcome to my crazy, messy, beautiful life!!
