2 years

I love my husband.

He is just the best. It's true! I put some pictures on Facebook of us, and it just seems right to do the same thing here. Our two year anniversary was July 14, 2009. I can't believe it's already been two years!!! I love him so much more than I did when I married him, but I know that love will only grow. Crazy!

Anyways. Here's from then until now, a brief overview of my baby and me.

You can say "awwwww" now. It's okay.

Naming the blog

I picked "Like the dawn..." because it reminded me of several writings that I enjoy.

To start off, one of my favorite songs is "Jezebel" by Iron & Wine. It's a different take on the biblical story of Jezebel, but my favorite line is "Wait like the dawn, how it aches to meet the day..." This was one of those lines, for me, that just resonated. I wrote it on the inside of journal covers, I sang it out loud, I love this line.... To imagine the dawn aching to meet the day... to image creation in relationship... It always reminded me of waiting to meet the one I was supposed to be with forever, and that ache. The reminder that all creation aches to be redeemed and to be made one with God again. This song was playing on my first date with Bryan... and he kissed me right before "Wait like the dawn..." It seemed perfect.

So I decided to try this "picture" thing. So here are some pictures from our vacation/cruise in January. They were all taken by either Bryan or myself and I fiddled around with them using Gimp 2.0. All of these pictures will be going on our "artsy picture" wall. Enjoy!

Ta-da! First post in my new blog. I have had a Livejournal since April of 2001, but I thought it would be nice to start a new blog that reflected more than just my thoughts. My hopes are to have this blog serve a number of functions: to share aspects of my life, my life with my hubster Bryan, recipes I like, things I've been making, pictures... lots of pictures. I will also be posting some excerpts from books that I enjoy as well as topics that have been on my mind.

This was the most boring blog post ever. I will try to get better, promise. :)
