Full Circle

Although it may seem that I have dropped off the face of the blog world, I have, in fact, not. I've simply been incredibly busy for the last six months. What, you may ask, keeps one busy for six months? I cannot find a succinct answer to that, but I will still try to explain where I have been. Looking through my last few posts, I have been cryptic to say the least. Now, I shall try to exonerate myself.

About a year ago, I made a wish for Christmas that I was ready for a "real" relationship, a boyfriend.... I can now, happily, say that the wish has come true. After the initial auditions, it was clear to me that I had to be diligent in my endeavors. Life-partnering can be tricky. But fate brought me a wonderful surprise: Brett.

We met online and exchanged emails for several weeks before meeting. That period was a good indication that he was a thoughtful, funny and intelligent guy. Once we were face to face, it was a done deal. I don't know if I believe in love at first sight, because it feels more like a drawn out swoon than a fall, at least to me. So, we end up entranced by each other and by September, we were "honeymooners" in Hawaii. Then, in November, I finished moving in with him. My roommate and comrade in debauchery, JR, found new digs with his own man. I traveled with Brett to visit his new Mormon in-laws, in Arizona. My family greeted him with acceptance and love, granted we stay about five feet apart the whole time. Now we are planning a trip to Chicago, where he is from, so that I can meet his family. Did we move too fast? Our therapist says that's neither here nor there. The important thing is that we have each other.

As I have said before, wishes come true.
