Too Busy to Post

Sometimes life just gets away from you. I had these plans to post little bits of my life on here pretty regularly, just little updates on what I was doing, but life sure got busy.

It's a shame, really, that when I am the busiest, when I have so much I'd love to talk about, that I don't have enough time to reflect on everything that is happening and jot down a few notes about it on here. I'd love to be able to look back on this thing in a few years and be able to read through a few of the wonderful and silly things I've done, so I'll have to set aside some time each week to write. As it is, about six months have gone by and I'll need to do a quick recap.

I got married!

I've mentioned this before, but it's such a big part of what has happened in the last few months. And she still likes me! Who knew?

Honeymoon in Hawaii

My brand new wife and I said to each other, "For our honeymoon, why don't we do something unique and original? I don't want our honeymoon to be just like everyone else's." So, we went to Hawaii. That's unique, right?

Well, let me tell you about this strange place. There are mountains and beaches, warm blue waters filled with colorful fish, and this interesting little drink called a Mai Tai. The weather is consistently in the 70s all year, the most delicious coffee in the world is grown here, and the sunsets are amazing. Definitely not for everyone.

Snorkeling in Kona

We quit our jobs and moved to San Luis Obispo!

Let's see. Over the last year, I proposed to Erinn, moved into my first apartment, got married, went to Hawaii, quit my jobs, and moved to San Luis Obispo. It's been a slightly abnormal year.

The last couple weeks we've been wandering all over the central coast, enjoying the amazing weather over here. "It's August and it's only 75 degrees!" In Bakersfield, we'd try to get chores done in the morning since it was usually 90 degrees by noon. In San Luis Obispo, we've had our windows open constantly and we've hiked almost every day. Living here has been a complete turnaround and I'm loving it.

I can't wait to post more about our new life in San Luis Obispo. For the more SLO-related posts, I'll be posting over at (Click the button Our Life in SLO at the top). For everything else, I'll continue posting here.
