I think I must be part bear. The colder it gets outside, the harder it is to get out of my bed. I quite enjoy my life. I have a good job, a beautiful wife, a great dog. I have every reason to hop right out of bed and enjoy another one of God’s glorious days. But on days like today, I find myself burrowing deeper into the covers. Thank goodness I don’t live where it’s cold! My life would consist of nothing but sleep from October to March. I’d miss Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day (all of which happen to be some of my favorite holidays) because I would be hibernating. I guess that’s why they put all of these holidays during these cold months. So people would be forced to get out of the house in order to maintain relationships with loved ones. Thanks Hallmark! 🙂

Ready for Fall!

For those of you wondering, Ryan and I are alive and well! We decided (whether consciously or not, I’m not sure) to take a temporary hiatus from the blogging world over the summer. I have been focused on healing (which has been a very slow process) and trying to figure out what I want to do with my life (something very hard for such an indecisive person), while Ryan has been busy with his play and a couple weeks away on audits and training for his first 5k, among other things.

Although I’ve been trying to get plenty of rest, we have definitely been staying busy. Right now we are in the process of redecorating our living room, planning our Halloween costumes, and figuring out what we are going to do for our one-year anniversary (which is only a couple weeks away!). Fall seems like it is going to be a very good season for us. Last winter was one of the coldest (and iciest/snowiest), spring was one of the wettest (the Nashville flood made sure of that), and summer was one of the hottest. What an extreme first year of marriage we’ve had! (Especially when you add my back surgery to all of that!) Fall will definitely be a welcome break.
