On December 1, 2012, I married my true love and very best friend.
Since then, life has gone a little differently than I imagined married-life being.
After the wedding, most married couples put their time and energy into saving money, buying a house, and making babies. Those things aren't really a priority for us. We might not be living in the same town next month! Better yet, next week!
My husband is a MiLB pitcher for the NY Mets Organization. This is his second season playing professional ball. Last year during our engagement, we saw each other one weekend out of every month for 7 months. I was miserable, Logan was lonely, and neither of us were happy with the long-distance. This made the engagement and wedding planning very difficult. At the end of the season, after months of prayer, a long-time family friend offered me a job at his commercial real estate company in Fort Worth. He knew our situation and from the beginning promised that I could travel with my soon-to-be-husband during the season.
God is good.
So, in February, three months after the wedding, we moved from Fort Worth to Port St. Lucie, Florida for Spring Training. Just a few weeks ago, we moved from Florida to upstate New York for Logan to play AA ball. Because of our time apart, I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to contribute to our family financially AND emotionally by being here to support my husband. It's that can't-eat, can't-sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over-the-fence, world series kind of stuff. The stuff that makes life worth living.
I hope that through this blog I can do several things: offer advice and support to those who are enduring long-distance relationships, share our travel and love stories, and allow myself a creative outlet by sharing my many passions. I have created a blog to not only pass the time here in this little town, but to recount our exciting, uncommon, married-life journey. Enjoy!
