Food and My Stomach Are Never Far from My Mind….

I could start a million places with this blog.  Since most of you are expecting that my title will somehow determine the topic of conversation here, I will refrain from talking about my health or even anything food-related.  Is that even possible for me?  I don’t know.  I love talking about food. Ugh…. bad idea to make that move, Ashley, but what is done is done.  No food.

I was researching quotes about love tonight.  No, not because I am lovestruck, in-love, or as Punkface (Aaron, my future brother-in-law) says, “twitterpated.”  I’m in the process of writing a paper on the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.  I had to watch it in class here at my local community college (a subject in and of itself and most-likely for another time).  I ran across this quote, and I have left it open in a separate tab for over a half-hour now.

” Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep… wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’ re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU… The one who turns to his friends and says, thats her… ”

You probably are rolling your eyes, thinking how cliche that quote is, wondering if you know the person that should be attributed to, or even just saying, “Yeah, Aaron is right.  You are twitterpated.”  Well, although all those things might be true — Hey, I never said Aaron was wrong.. — the reason I love that quote is because, thank the Lord, that is what I have!!!!

Adam Garrett Bowman is just that, and I love that. I can be me… and he’s 100% okay with that!!! lol…ok… so that might not seem like a big deal to some of you who don’t know me well, but I’m sure those of you who do are now laughing.  I’m not the most-graceful person, the most-girly, nor the most-traditional.  I’ve asked Adam so many times “Is that weird?” and have just given up on waiting for the affirmative answer and often just answer it myself.  “Yes.”  Oh, well.  I’m weird, and I’m proud of it.  My consolation: he’s even weirder for loving a weirdo like me. =)

Enough of my lovestruck stories (Heck, I’ve not even shared the best ones yet!)….

This is my attempt to start blogging again.  I miss reading and writing and, after some good talks with Adam on the subject, we have decided it’s important that I make time to not only keep up my blog, but also to keep writing and pursuing what God directed me to those few years ago.  I am about to get married and start a new phase in life.  I am about to graduate and enter the full-on world of working people.  I am about to work my butt off in order to pay off student loans I tried my darnedest to keep small and somehow failed to do so.  However, I am a writer, and after all this school (and debt!) and training and knowing the Lord has given me this talent for a reason, I am most-definitely not going to set it aside.  I don’t know how I’ll do it all.  However, I do know that God has that all figured out and the only place to be is in His Will doing what He deems best…. even when somehow it doesn’t seem humanly possible to do it all.

My to-do list tonight is never-ending and my day-timer for 2010 is already filling up with plans and fun and things I/we hope to accomplish.  Keep me in prayer, please.  I so desire to be faithful to all I need to do, but most-importantly, I pray I can be faithful to the people I have relationships with.

That takes this blog on another turn.  Relationships.

Why is it that we expect that which is worth the most to come the easiest?  Sometimes I think I forget that in the midst of everything. I forget that nothing worth anything comes without a fight. I forget that.

I’m off for now… off to accomplish another to-do, then crash.

Good night, blogging world.
