From the middle....

I feel a little funny about starting a blog. It's something that I've always wanted to do, but it just doesn't feel quite right to me to start right now. I feel like so much of my life has already happened, and so many of the things that have happened have made me who I am today. I don't feel like it's proper to start in the middle if you're telling a story. But that's what I'm doing. I guess to make up for it, sometimes I might go back and tell a story from the past so it's easier to understand where I'm coming from.

The title of my blog says it all. It was actually Colby's idea.... as a mom to a toddler, I am always using my love to make Ryan's owies go away by "kissing them better." But let's apply it to all of life. You put love into things to make them better. You give love to your marriage, your kids, your relationships, your house, and you make them better than they were before. Colby and I have had to do a lot of "kissing it better" to get to where we are. We have reached this point in our lives through what Colby calls "quite a streak of trial and error." Things haven't always been great, and for a time were at what I think we both would consider rock bottom, but with love as our foundation, we've managed to build a life together that I am so happy to be living.

Maybe in my next post I'll delve into the history of "us." Then I could start from the beginning. :-)
