The beginning of us.

Dear reader (which at this point of my baby blog is just me, but just in case),

The beginning of and the Hubs...started out like many a relationship does in this day and age, with lunch. It progressed to a wonderful and sweet serious relationship, at which point I may offend by telling you that Mike and I lived together for quite a few years before my parents would have approved (i.e. pre-marriage).

Whatever your thoughts on pre-marital cohabitation (or "living in sin" as Ma calls it), I hope you can swallow it and read on. A brave new life started for me and Hubby in September, and this girl wants to share!

So I'm not sure if I was born missing a gene, or if I'm just lazy by nature (both are distinct possibilities)...but I was not excited to plan a wedding. I was (and am) so thrilled and excited to be married to the man I love and continue down the wonderfully complicated path called life with him, but the idea of planning a big wedding (the picking out of flowers, the shopping for invitations, the calling of 6857385 vendors for prices) made me throw up in my mouth a little.

Nonetheless, that's what I did, because my mom wanted a big fancy wedding. I'm not sure if any of you have ever encountered a Korean mother before, but they are some of the most stubborn people on this planet. Especially my mother. What omma wants, omma gets, and so Mike and I razzle-dazzled our way through a glorious fall wedding, with a beautiful venue, dress, and dance party, the likes of which my parents' friends will probably talk about for a few years to come.

All of the wedding planning I did was annoying and frustrating and involved a lot of time over the course of a year that I would have rather spent sleeping, working, watching TV, or going to the optometrist, and I will not pain you with the details. Suffice it to say that it is now over, the wedding was fabulous, and wedded life (for the last 3 months anyhow) has been even better.

Since all of our friends and family ask lately, I will answer to you as well: Married life is great! It's pretty  much the same as unmarried life, since Hubby and I have lived together for 3+ years already, but it was great before, and I am determined that it will continue to be great in the future. Stay tuned!

P.S. Hubby is wonderful because...he does the dishes!

Go Brewers!
