Novembers

First of all... I just noticed that I've posted 150 times on this little blog.
That's a lot for me... because I honestly thought I was only starting this blog to fill friends and family in on Livie's NICU progress. I updated after her funeral and thought that would be the end of it. But this blogging thing kind of sucks you in... and I am so glad it did.

The other night, Kurt and I had just turned off the TV and were about to go to sleep when he said, "Do you realize that November has always been a really significant month for us?"
Sigh. "Yes, love. Do you remember how I told you that I re-named my blog?" {He doesn't really read it}.

I read in a wedding magazine today (fyi: don't sign up for a free subscription of Brides right before your wedding. It just started coming last month...) that husbands are great at hearing but their listening skills are awful. I agree.

However, he actually pointed out some other reasons that November is significant that I hadn't even thought about. First he said the two obvious ones - baby and wedding. But it's ALSO the month that we re-connected in 2007, and the month that I finally got to go visit him in San Diego and help him move home after his deployment. I think it's pretty sweet that he actually thought of that!

So that's 4 years of sweet Novembers. 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010. Looking back on all of that really makes me realize that those are the 4 most significant "events" of my life. Or at least, of my adult life.

And definitely makes me wonder what November of 2011 is going to bring...

Isn't it amazing how everything ties together? I think the whole blogging experience is very reflective on what life is all about.
