A New Me

I have changed quite a bit since I’ve been married and moved to Idaho. Here’s a list of just some of the new things I’ve done.

I have cooked and eaten elk meat.
I have killed more cockroaches than I can count.
I have become a dog person.
I have chopped firewood.
I have raised chickens.
I go to bed early.
I’ve had to learn to make a shopping list since we only go to town about once a week.
I have helped clean out a flooded basement.
I went swimming in the reservoir.
I mowed the lawn.
I’ve had cookouts in my backyard fire pit using sticks I carved myself.
I’ve been on many hikes, more often than not without a trail.
I learned how to use an airsoft gun.
I can now cook more than just Pasta Roni.
I went kayaking.
I learned how much I love goats.

So far my new life has been pretty amazing. I am glad to live in Idaho and to be having all these new adventures (except the cockroaches - I hate those). I love being married!


  1. I did not see the goat thing coming.

  2. This is my favorite post I've ever read but probably because I love you and love to read about you and am happy when I see all these new things you're up to. I think you and marriage go along well together. You've changed a lot and I am soooooooo glad that you can make more than just pasta roni now. I remember feeling sick when you told me you only ate that and frozen pizza during college.
