You quit your job, for some guy, and ran off with him? And, he his?
Yah,” we had five-hundred dollars, fear of the unknown (Actually, we were afraid to journey back to my old stomping grounds. I was attempting to convince Chad we should go back to my home town to visit those I had left to rot in shit.) excitement , exhilaration for adventure, youth, ambition, God…..AND we were positively, madly in LOVE.
Chads parents resided on a house boat in Seattle. 1800 miles journey in Sally Forth would bring us that much closer to our destiny. (Living side-by-side, rooting for one another to prevail in harmony. Learning, experimenting, struggling, all alone but with each other. We really had no one else on our side. Since then my mother-in-law and I are whole heartedly working on our diplomatic communication skills. (We get on quite well together).
I rarely speak of my personal/private relationship with Chad. This is partly because I want him to be the first to hear it from me. Most often we are working it out (busy 24/7) Late hours and extremely satisfying days with our toddler allows me many outlets. While I do not blog about marriage or how I could be better in my marriage (I have YET to admit to myself) , I am mentioning it now!?……little by little!!
P.S. I did not finish the apron for the wedding gift. I worked hard at it, until it was obvious I was extending the project to be finished by the next Mommy Group! I will give it to her there.
I am really glad I was able to be there for my new friend. I was hair dresser for an hour 🙂
