A Love Story & A New Beginning ...

Monday. 12 days. And a new beginning. Maybe I should start closer to the actual beginning ...

Here is the Cliff Notes version of our love story:

PB & I met at the ripe old ages of 13 & 15. We were typical teenagers who had relationships that were counted by hours not months. I'm a bit of a commitment-phobe and in middle/high school was looking less for love and more for fun. We dated my freshman year of high school off and on. When I was 15, PB screwed up. The kind of screw up that lands you behind bars. Details are not important here. Suffice it to say PB spent the next 6 years in prison. Letters were exchanged at first but over the years they petered out. He was released in 2008 to start a new life. Second chances are rare, but we were blessed with one on January 1, 2011. Our lives haven't been perfect, and our love has been tested by fire. But he is my better half ... hands down. Our good times have been wonderful! And our bad times have been nearly awful. This past year has truly been marked with more good than bad. Unfortunately an opportunity that should have given PB a shot at a better life resulted in an awful mix-up. 12 days ago PB & I became victims of a long-distance relationship. And this blog was born ....

For me it's important to have an outlet. Maybe your journey is similar in some way to ours. Or maybe you're just looking to spice up your life with a little drama. [Goodness knows I have plenty of that!] Either way, welcome!

PS - And please bear with me as I get this blog up & running and looking snazzy ;]
