I hope you're all doing well! I'm afraid that I haven't been a loyal reader lately. I opened Google Reader today and had over 200 unread posts! I had to click "Mark All Read," I'm sorry!
My first week of work went really well! The people are really nice, and it seems like a great environment. Last week, I just worked in the retail part of the bakery, getting to know their customers and products, and how they run their business. This week of training should be even better since I'll be training for the type of work I'll actually be doing, so I'm really excited about that and I will definitely try to write more often now that I finally have my laptop back!
I also had a fantastic weekend! My hubby and I drove to our hometown Friday night. A very close friend of mine got married on Saturday and it was so nice to share the day with them and celebrate the beginning of their married life together! April and Eric also went to the wedding, so we got to spend a lot of time with them, which is always nice. I took almost 600 photos, but to be totally honest, I haven't really looked at them that closely yet. Once I sort through them and do some editing, I promise to share them with you!
On Sunday, we spent some time visiting my father-in-law, his girlfriend, and my sister-in-law, before heading up to visit with my brother-in-law, his wife, and my niece. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, both Saturday and Sunday, so we enjoyed the sun and each other's company. My niece is getting so big and is as cute as ever! I also took a bunch of photos of her, but I haven't even uploaded those yet. After our visit, my sister-in-law, brother-in-law, his wife and my niece all came to my parents' house and had dinner with us and my grandparents.
It was a really great weekend, and we drove back this morning so my hubby could go into work this afternoon. I don't know what it is about my hometown, but I always feel so peaceful and relaxed when I'm there. It's a wonderful combination of being surrounded by family, and the sheer beauty of everything there. It never fails to make me emotional and fill me with an overly happy, calm feeling.
Speaking of being overly happy, it amazes me how much more I love my husband as time passes. I never thought it was possible for me to love him more. But time passes, and we just seem to keep growing together. We have our moments, of course, but we seem to be in such a relaxed, good place lately. I really wish I could more clearly put it into words, but it doesn't seem possible.
On another note, I've completely fallen head over heels in love with another man...Edward Cullen! ;) If you're wondering how I could resist editing wedding photos and photos of my niece, it might, just possibly, be that I had to finish Eclipse...
That's all for now, but I'll try not to be as much of a stranger!
