2010 was good to me. I Experienced, Learned, and Grew so much!
2009 came to a rocky end and left me broken and somewhat lost, those days are dark in my memory and I can’t recall much to detail. I remember December as cold and lonely. I had a lot of work due to snow, and i always tried to stay busy because the engine blew up in my truck and i didn’t have an extra $2000 just lying around. So I moved in with friends who were looking for a room mate in order to walk to work. Pardon my cliché but it was a long December.
2010 rolled in a little brighter. Turns out living with friends when your hurting is a good idea as long as you keep your head straight. 3 contrasting personalties in equal power under one roof can be at times frustrating, but we had a lot of fun.
February 2010 brought unexpected Treasure, an old friend of mine from school sent me an e-mail, basically it said this ” Hey bro, hows your heart? I’d love to catch up with you Coffee perhaps?” “Planes don’t slip” one week after we met up we were going steady. The rest is history, The Fox chased the Owl and we fell in love.
March was a dream, new adventures with the love of my life. I got an old Ford truck for free and rebuilt the engine and got it running…(For 2 or 3 weeks anyway) March was like magic.
April,…. In April, I went to Africa. Don’t get me wrong, Africa was an awesome experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I was working for Alltec Corp. on a Marathon Oil compound updating their lightening protection systems. The work was challenging but turns out I’m pretty good at it. For a single version of myself working with Alltec is a dream come true, but with my love waiting at home pining for me and Me in Africa, returning the pining, well that kind of puts a damper on things.
So June, when I would hold My Love again, could not come soon enough. With our June Reunion, and 2 months of hearts growing Fonder; I decided it was time to accelerate things with our love story, and I asked Shannon Mimms to be my Bride. The Perfect moment came before i expected and i didn’t have a ring, so i pulled a piece of yellow string from the blanket we were sitting on and tied it to her finger to hold the title of engagement ring regent. We set the Date of July 24, and that left us with about a month to plan our wedding. Oh… and I got a new engine in my 4runner.
July was a whirlwind and a blur, As simple as our wedding was the planing was not without certain complications some expected, some not so much. The Food was pot luck, Venue- The Pink Beds @ $40, Decorations- Natures Best, and some rustic touches of our own, Ceremony- Short and Sweet in a field of Ferns, Reception- a wonderful array of people in a field. All in All perfect for the two of us or should I say the One of us 🙂
August held our honey moon, 2 weeks of great crab legs and great sex. Savannah Ga., is a lovely little big city if you wanted to you could see everything in one day, and you’ll always discover something new every time you visit. Charleston SC. was our second destination. Charleston is Rad. tons of interesting shops and architecture. August is also home to Shannon’s Birthday, she was 24 this year, I took her to Asheville were we found “OUR” restaurant. Jack of the Wood , after a good pint and some fish and chips, we walked around enjoying street musicians until time for the movie “The Kids Are Alright” Its kind of hilarious. After the movie we got some Ice cream at Marble Slab, Then went home to cuddle.
Autumn was full of fun, We Launched Fox & Owl Studio. We got our adorable orange kitten Angus. my Birthday was in October, we were Hippys for Halloween, and we had our first real holiday together- Thanksgiving.
When the winter snow came we were reminded of the first weeks we spent together, and there was a freshness in our atmosphere. We spent a lot of the winter keeping to our selfs all lovey dovey.
Our first Christmas was perfect we went traditional with a treepod, wrapped all our gifts in newspaper, reserved the right to celebrate Boxing day.
New Years we spent quietly at home with a bottle of wine.
and here we are welcome 2011.
