Coffee Date {1}

One of my new favorite blogs hosts a coffee date [link up] every Friday to tell the world about what she's been up to and how life is in her part of the world and this week, I thought I'd play along.

If we were having coffee today, I'd tell you that its been a good first "real" week in our new apartment. We've cooked dinners, I've made M lunches, and we've started to settle in to this new phase of life and our relationship. I'd tell you how great M is and how much love we share. I'd tell you that nothing has ever felt like this before and that I didn't know this was what real love was. I'd tell you how grateful I am for this place in life and that I found the perfect person for me.

I'd then tell you that my etsy shop has started to pick up again in a big way and I'm really thrilled. I'd tell about the 20+ new items being worked on right now and how I can't wait to get them in the shop. I'd also tell you about the large order I received from a woman hosting a photography workshop and how she purchased 9 straps to give to her attendees. I'd tell you have happy that makes me.

I'd tell you that I finally got back to eating right and have started entering the intimidating doors of a real life gym again and how good I feel just being back to a more healthy lifestyle. Even if I did let things get a little out of hand over the last 6 months.

If you knew about my past at all, you'd probably ask how things with the divorce are going (most people do and I don't mind) and I'd tell you that I'm in the annoying wait period. I'd tell you that I signed more papers and then was informed that new laws went into effect starting July and that there are even more papers coming my way wanting signatures. You may also want to know how he is being during this time and I'd tell you some things never change, that I get an email every now and then when I've somehow done something wrong in his eyes again and he can't help but point it out. I'd also say that it barely even phases me anymore and the most he'll get these days is an eye roll. I'd probably tell you how annoyed I am with having to keep his last name until a judge tells me I don't have to anymore and that I just want to be rid of it.

Then I'd probably change the subject because, while I truly don't mind talking about the divorce, there are so many good things in my life and I don't want to dwell on this major negative. I'd ask how life is with you and how your summer is going. What's new?

I'm so glad you found a good, loving man! You deserve all the happiness in the world. I'd tell you during our coffee date that the smell of coffee right now makes me sick to my stomach, and that actually the smell of EVERYTHING makes me sick to my stomach and I just want to hold this sweet squishy baby in my arms. Keep loving life my friend :)
