You have caught me
in the throes of love, packing and philosophising
3 weeks until we head em up and move em out to Austin.
I have moved before
but I wasn't prepared for the range of emotions
that have come with packing up
the contents of my life this time.
Perhaps it's the contrast
of the life I am leaving behind
to the one I am entering into.
How does a slightly kooky and frivolous girly girl from California
prepare for a future
with a no nonsense manly man in Austin ?
( insert sense of humor here )
Will he really want an absynthe fountain mouthwash dispenser
on our bathroom counter ?
Can vintage sparkles co exist with Brookstone gadgets ?
He is different than me and that's what I love about him.
I love an ironic pairing
contrasts that compliment
such as velvet and burlap
chandeliers and weathered wood
champagne in a paper cup
So why not us ?
He needs a little of me like I need a little of him.
Things that come with love, like patience and understanding
( and did I mention sense of humor ? )
are the things that will carry us through.
I believe we can make it work beautifully.
So I accept this new adventure in life
and rest my mind in
the beauty of love induced compromise.
Life is far more interesting that way !
... and that is so wildly romantic
don't you think ?
