I have not blogged in a long, long time, but I’ve been meaning to:)
I know you can relate to that. We’ve all got things we’ve been meaning to do, right? I figure, we do what we do when we do it. Why be hard on ourselves?!
Since I last blogged, 2 major things happened in my life:
1. I bought my first house. Oh boy, that was a roller coaster of a ride, but I made it through and now have a home to call my own with plenty of room for my pig collection.
2. I got engaged. I’ve been with my boyfriend, er, fiancee (ha!) Chris for almost 5 years and during a weekend getaway to Carmel, CA he popped the question. It was ridiculously romantic; we were standing in the crashing waves, he told me he loved me and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, and then he said these words, which still cracks me up:
“It’s time to lock this shit down.”
Of course I said yes.
For many, that wouldn’t be a very romantic thing to hear at that particular point, but for me, it was perfect. And that’s what makes him perfect for me. We get each other. What more could you ask for?
Since I’m sharing this news on my Pig Lovers blog, I suppose I should tie this into pigs somehow. Well, here goes:
A few days ago my dog Wilbur and I met up with our friend Danielle and her ridiculously adorable daughter Suzette for a little play date by the Bay. Danielle gave me a belated birthday gift, a charming ceramic pig. Later that afternoon, the new pig addition was on my dining room table amongst the clutter; a vase with fresh-cut flowers, some planters, a notebook, an old toy car discovered under the flooring of our new house, a laptop and other random items.
Chris comes home, and within seconds, walks into the kitchen, peers into the dining room, and says to me, “what’s that?” pointing to the white ceramic pig.
Me: “My new pig. Danielle gave it to me.”
Chris: “I think I’ve inherited your pig radar.”
(Pig radar is what I use to describe my sixth sense that enables me to locate pig items in close proximity any time, any where.)
Yep, I’ve found the man for me!
Do you have pig radar?
