Yesterday was my birthday, Friday the 13th YAY! I'm still amazed at the difference between this year and the last. I had a pretty low key birthday. It was mostly me and Joe hanging out at my house. Tamara made me a fabulous cake. I made myself a fabulous pecan pie. Duia made me fabulous tortellini. Aaron was just generally fabulous. Hehe. Anyway, I spent the day with the people I love in a house that I love.

Right now Joe's outside putting Miracle Gro on my lawn. We will have been together four months on the 17th, and sometimes it still catches me by surprise how much I love him.

I'm planning on doing some serious cleaning tomorrow so I can hopefully take some pictures to post so those of you that haven't been lucky enough to visit yet can see my house.
I've been in my new house for a week and a day now. Unpacking has begun. Bedrooms have been painted. Internet is working. In a few days I go to Maine to pick up Aaron.

I have a home.

This home.

My House

I never expected this. I can't believe that this is my life now. This beautiful house is mine. My bedroom has orange walls that Joe painted for me.

Joe is another thing that I never expected. Yesterday was our two month anniversary of the team building experience where it all started. Two weeks ago, he told me he loves me. Last week, he met my Dad and my Uncle Chris. I love him so much that it makes my head spin. When I'm with him, I feel safe and wanted and beautiful. I feel like I could spend the rest of my life with him.

When I lost my Mom, I really felt like I was never going to be happy again. Now I'm living in my dream house, surrounded by my best friends with a man who I love and who loves me back. I never thought I'd have this, but now I do. And it is amazing.
So the mailman brings me a package today and asks, "Are you Nasty?" I am not surprised by this because our mailman is funny and I was expecting a package from [ profile] duia and we always write weird things on the labels.

The package is from "Itsa Trap & The Internet."

Was it ever!

I open it up and find out that [ profile] duia got a bunch of lovely internet people to send scarves to my Mom. Along with the scarves there was Teavana Tea (OMG YUMMY) and loads of other hilarious crazy. (EDWARD GOREY BOOK! VOODOO DOLL! TEXAS FLASK! KEYCHAINS! PICTURES!)

I am sitting on my floor surrounded by packing material amazed at how awesome you all are. I'm so hanging the tiny Mexican hat up at my desk at work.

Much love to [ profile] duia, [ profile] gryfindormia, [ profile] irish_cocktail, [ profile] just_marzipan, [ profile] slightly_mad, and [ profile] lizzyrose89!!!
