BMV Wedding Blog Back in Service!

My amazing wife has graciously agreed to take time out of her busy schedule to start posting to our wedding blog again (bmv wedding blog). In fact, this whole blogging thing got started because of our wedding web site - I hadn't really wanted to get into the blogging scene before that. But after posting a few to the wedding blog, I realized that many of my thoughts are either completely irrelevant to our union and therefore don't belong on a "wedding blog" or are just plain embarrasing to my wife, so I needed to find somewhere else to "let loose." I'm glad I did because it's pretty fun to blog. It takes the place of talking to myself in the shower.

The thing I'm so excited about is that I've hoped my wife would start blogging along with me. I love her humor and personality, but sometimes she doesn't like to show it. Part of the reason she's motivated to resuscitate the ol' wedding blog is because we would like for our family members in Vietnam to know what's going in our life. Hence, the bilingual approach. And shhhh, don't tell her I said this if you read closely you'll notice hints of the Vietlish (Vietnamese + English) that we speak to each other. I hope our kids have that choice on their "Home Language Survey" at school - "My home language is Vietlish."

Yay for Vietlish! In fact, I'm fluent in Vietlish, I speak it all the time with my mom =). I'll definitely check out the wedding blog and am looking forward to meeting your wife (virtually). Hey, I guess virtual space ain't so bad =).

Thanks for the comment, I'm actually going to write another article about that virtual article you sent me. Extremely interesting!

Yeah, this virtual stuff is great in many ways. Nothing like meeting someone in person, though. Actually, my wife has already met you... virtually. I introduced her to your blog a while ago to show her my posts that were longer than your article. She started looking through your flickr pictures as I left the room, and a few minutes later I heard her call, "Hey, how come she's so slim and cute?" lol
