I am getting increasingly bad at updating my blog. A lot of it had to do with vanilla world- I was working a job that had me in a lab almost 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. On weekends, I'd spend it working at kink events and parties. I didn't give myself much time to breathe, let alone blog. It finally reached a breaking point and I knew I needed to make some changes.
I switched into a new department at work, one that is aimed towards R&D and validation of protocols instead of working with production. The amount of stress that took off my shoulders has been incredible. I'm working just as hard, with less hours and more pay. In fact, I've learned more in the last 3 weeks of being in this new department than I have at the almost 2 years with the old department. What's not to love?
I'm not sure if most people knew this, but I was married previous to joining the BDSM world- I had a vanilla husband when I met M0co. It's funny because while most people try to hide their kink lives from the vanilla world, I was doing the exact opposite. Our marriage wasn't one based on sexual attraction. and eventually, it came time for us to part. Our divorced was finalized at the end of Jan 2015. L, my now-ex-husband, and I are still friends and we're very happy for one another.
Since my divorce was finalized, it meant that I was free to marry M0co now. He's been waiting patiently for over 2 years and when the divorce papers finally arrived, he was probably more ecstatic than I was. He texted me all day, making plans. It finally came down to two of the most important texts I'll ever receive in my life:
M0co: Let's get married this weekend :)
M0co: I don't want to waste any more of my life not calling you my wife
Who says romance is dead?
On Feb 7, 2015, M0co and I eloped in Las Vegas. I had this huge amazingly detailed post planned, but, in the end, the post just didn't feel...right. M0co and I never have made a big deal out of the major milestones in our life- no collaring ceremony, no huge announcements of our engagement. It's fitting that we did a quicky marriage in a place known for its incredible amounts of sin.
Since we did such a tiny wedding, there were no real photos taken. We did take a bunch of selfies and live tweeted a bit:
We did, however, celebrated M0co jute style:
Winterfire occurred this past weekend. This is the first time in,,,pretty much ever, in which I decided to put out into the Universe that I would like to bottom to other people. I was blessed to have friends respond and this year my Winterfire experience was incredibly different than any I've ever been to. I'm still processing the event and hopefully will have a writing about it soon.
FIRE in Orlando is coming up- I've managed to stretch out our stay in Florida a bit longer so we can enjoy the weather and spend times with our friends down at The Woodshed. Events tend to burn me out since we do a lot of teaching, I'm happy to be able to pace myself and recover in someplace warm and with good friends. I plan on treating our extra few days in Orlando as a mini-honeymoon for M0co and myself. I'm not so sure he pictures it that way, though :P
