I also find a peculiar joy when I discover that a friend blogs. I love the peek into that person's world. So now if there are any others who find that same joy, I'm gladly (if a bit trepidaciously - i.e. will I keep it up? is this just a trial run in narcissism?) contributing to it.
And the blog name? For a person who LOVES words (I actually had a favorite sentence from my thesis!) finding a name was the four month hang up. It needed to be pithy and meaningful and layered and memorable. So "Finding A Way" (which may be none of the aforementioned adjectives) made its way onto the page. If one theme has characterized my life with Ben over the past year it's that phrase. We have found a way to:
- date and marry in under 10 months
- start a new vocation (Ben)
- travel to Los Angeles, CA
- cut our budget by at least 50% becaue of said vocation change
- make new lifelong friends
- laugh, cry, and have fun
