Meghan and Dave's Wedding Website

Well, it's not far off now. Meg and I are getting married October 4th, less than 3 months from now. So, in order to provide some information in today's web world we have course established a wedding website which you can find at ;s Wedding">http://wedding.smithdm3.com.

What's Behind Door Number 3?

So, Meg and I finally got it done. No, not our wedding - that will come, but rather the purchase of a new car. This was Meg's first car purchase, so I think it was exciting for her, and of course it was exciting for me. I liked my little Corolla, but it was time to abandon it. The poor thing needed some money put into it, and I just didn't see a long future for it and I. And well, Meg didn't really like us all as a threesome with it being a manual transmission and all. So, while I had initially thought I would buy a car last spring, we finally got around to it this spring.

2007 Come and Gone...

Well, 2007 is nearly thru, and while it had its highlights, I think 2008 will be a much better year so I'm not upset about the passing of the year.

2007 started off with me wishing Meg a safe and happy journey on her year long trip to South America. She went to volunteer in La Paz, Bolivia for UNICEF for most of the calendar year. I knew at the time that I would miss her, but thankfully, with the rise of the Internet, staying in touch was not that much of a problem.

Meg's Visit

While, the last couple of weeks were probably some of the most enjoyable I've had all year. Now, I mean, I've had some good weeks what with my trip to Bolivia & Peru, and my 8 straight days of disc golf, but this was different, Meg was home for a visit.

Enjoying La Paz and its Surroundings

La Paz FC vs. The Strongest
Meg and I have enjoyed a couple of nice days here in La Paz. Sunday we took things pretty easy, sleeping in a bit before going for lunch at a friend of Meghan's in the city centre. This girl, Linda, has an amazing apartment, with a view that overlooks the city and the tallest snow covered peak in the area, Mt. Illimani. We had a nice lunch and Meg was able to meet some of Linda's other friends from the city.

Getting Ready for South America

I'm in the process of getting ready to go see my lovely girlfriend, Meg, down in Bolivia. I'm very much looking forward to seeing her as we've been apart for three months. Not only that, but it'll be a nice three week vacation for me.

While I'm there we'll be venturing to Peru to visit the Inca Trail, Machu Pichu, Lake Titicaca, Pisco (on the coast) and Lima. Meg has got some other plans in store for us while we're in Bolivia as well.

And sure enough, the weather here has been mostly crappy the past few weeks, and by the time I'm about to leave, it's improving.

A Week Alone

So, it's been a week since I dropped Meg off at the airport. And let me tell you, I do miss her dearly. It's interesting to live alone once again. Meg only lived with me for two months, but it was a great two months.

I do miss having her around to talk to, but thanks to technology we have been able to email, chat or talk everyday. I can't begin to imagine how much different things would be if we didn't at the very least have email. I mean, we'd go days without making contact which just seems so weird.

I miss her, and can't wait to see her in a few months - and it's only been a week :)

Announcing MylesAwayFromHome.com

Just wanted to let you know of the new addition to my links on the left hand side. The link "Meg" now points to MylesAwayFromHome.com, Meg's blog that she'll be updating on her yearlong trip to Bolivia (and hopefully on other trips in the future). While there isn't a lot of content there yet, it will no doubt begin to ramp up as she leaves in a weeks time.
