It's no secret that with our wedding coming up, I've spent a lot of time recently thinking about where I've been. It's a little staggering to think about just how much life I've lived, and I'm not quite half way done. Despite the parts I didn't like, I can't put into words how thankful I am for the story thus far.
Of course, it gets me into trouble some times, because Diana has only been a part of that history for a little under two years. So sometimes I peg something in the wrong year and it leads to one of those awkward "that must have been your other girlfriend" moments. The positive spin on that is that Diana became such a big part of my life so quickly and easily that she's solidly in my history of awesomeness.
Being single was surprisingly good for me. I experienced a great many things I didn't in and after college. The cost was certainly very high though, because divorce has a way of drastically altering your view of the world. You look at relationships, sex, career and life in general differently. Not better or worse, just different. Everything is so different now.
I can't help but think about how today and tomorrow will be. It's a pretty exciting time. I can't wait to get to that beach.
