Remember my new nightstand?

Apparently it is now home to Daniel’s glasses.

I don’t really mind. If I did, I’d transfer them back onto his own nightstand.

Still, it’s funny how that happens.

This morning, I was telling Daniel that I was excited–and I came up with a new simile to describe my excitement: “Like a sixteen-year-old getting her period for the first time.”

Daniel suggested that I post said simile on Facebook.

It managed to gross out one of our least gross-out-able friends.

Does that gross you out, or does it convey (as I intended) the excitement and relief of the arrival of a long-anticipated event?

Our wedding photos are now up so that we can order professional prints–and the electronic copies (which we bought rights for) should be arriving any day.

Which means I should soon have wedding photos to share with you. (For some strange reason, I didn’t take any pictures of my own that day :-P)

For now, I’ll give you a teaser from among the stuff our photographer posted on Facebook.

    So glad to see a lovely wedding photo!

    I don’t remember looking forward to my first period with excitement…more like dread.

  2. What a beard! I love the photo! Glad we’ll get to see more of them soon.
    Your simile didn’t gross me out, but it also didn’t ring true for me. I remember it happening and me being like, ok, this is it. Not gonna talk about this again.

    Yeah, the simile doesn’t ring true for me, either–I sort of dreaded it.

    Love the pic and can’t wait to see more!

  4. Yup. More like dread. I think that’s kind of a gross thing to say. :)

    The picture, on the other hand, is very opposite of gross! It’s QUITE lovely! I can’t wait to see more!

    Wow! I really struck out with my simile–at least among you all!

    I’m remembering how the girls of my acquaintance who didn’t start their periods until rather late in the game were rather worried that something was wrong with them–which meant that they were excited and relieved when their period finally arrived. Of course, within a couple of months, they were complaining about their monthly visitor just like the rest of us!
