Changes in the High Desert

I guess I should spill, given that big changes are afoot in my life.

DBF and I have decided that we will be getting married in the next year or so (I guess that makes him DF!) DF is very private (he describes himself as semi-antisocial), so I don't talk about him on the blog much. This is kind of an unlikely development, since neither one of us has exactly been involved in a relationship for quite a while until we met 2 years ago on Super Bowl Sunday. Something clicked initially and has continued to develop into something much more. I think we can get past each of our independent streaks and make it work.


I'm not expecting to have a big production for the wedding. Been there, did that. And big fancy weddings can be a little weird when the bride and groom have been around the block several times. Not that there's anything wrong with that, just my opinion. But you know, the first wedding is often planned for the family, so I figure this one can be for us.


We're beginning to look at houses in the far Northeast Heights of Albuquerque, which means my beloved casa will be going on the market this spring. Not the timing I would have picked to sell a house, but perhaps it'll pay off on the purchase side. In the meantime, I'll be doing some fixing up to make the house look as nice as possible so I can get my equity out soon.


I don't think these developments will affect the blog much, but wanted you all to know in case I did a disappearing act or (more likely) started blogging about houses and home repairs all of the time.

Congratulations Nancy! I wish you much happiness.
BTW, for my second wedding 7 years ago, we were both in our mid-forties and decided to forgo the big wedding thing. We rented out the whole little Inn at a winery on Old Mission Peninsula in northern Michigan and had 35 people - just closest family and a few friends, join us as we made vows and celebrated with a dinner, and it was fabulous.

Congratulations, Nancy! I can totally sympathize with your desire for a low-key wedding. When Josh and I got married, it was just the two of us, plus two close friends. It was when we still lived in Santa Fe, and the officiant was our neighbor... Just the right size wedding for us!

Good luck with the house hunt, too!

So happy for you. Even the second time around is so much fun to plan. Mostly because it is just for the two of you. I had a blast doing it "our way" and our way only! Can't wait to hear all about it, and the house stuff too -- very exciting times for you!

Wonderful news! I know you are so happy. My husband and I married later in life also. I had the big deal for my first wedding and certainly did not want to go through that again. We did a "destination wedding" through the internet and I was so pleased! We were married in a beautiful park in Vancouver and the next day got on a cruise to Alaska. My son and his wife flew out for the occasion, and that was it! Small and gorgeous. I am sure you will have a wonderful wedding and a great life together.
