New Beginnings

January 1, 2013

1 2 3 … 1 2 3 …

Is this thing on? Right. Well, here we go…

2012 was an amazing year. I ran my first marathon, married my best friend, and travelled cross-country to visit friends and family, and sadly, I did not document any of these adventures. A wise person (Hi, Mom!) told me to keep a journal about my life, so no memory, no matter how small, is ever lost. So, this blog is my feeble attempt to better record my life. You’ll see a lot of stuff about my husband Jason and my passions for running and cooking. You’ll probably see some pathetic attempts/frustrations at/with speaking the Russian language. And there’ll probably be tidbits of acoustics and physics thrown in. But I’m not going to lie to you. The blog is really about her-

This furry monster is Beignet. Beignet is an integral part of our little family, the crazy glue so-to-speak. I adopted Beignet in April 2010, exactly one month after my cross-country move to Houston. I found Beignet, or rather, Beignet found me through the Houston Collie Rescue. It was love at first sniff. Beignet and I have been through a lot together. Beignet is a heartworm “survivor”, and she overcame two very frustrating and sometimes excruciating months of heartworm treatment.  But fret not. She is a very  happy albeit obnoxious girl, and since Jason, a.k.a. Dad, moved-in during September 2011, she couldn’t be any happier.

There you have it! A girl. A guy. Their dog. Let the adventures begin!
