the beginning...

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. - Chinese Proverb

Tuesday, November 16, 2004 I originally created my piegirl blog intending to, as I put it, "
document my wonderful life with my sweetheart, Mister Pie, and what's in store for us in the days, months and years to come." But that blog turned out to be my own personal journal with miscellaneous entries scattered throughout the ensuing months.

This evening as I was cleaning out my desk and putting stuff away, Karen & Alex's Valentine's 2005 card to Pie and me inspired the creation of this blog, which WILL be dedicated to documenting the life of Mr & Mrs Pie. Karen made the card and found this "tag" with the above Chinese proverb. I thought that was just apropros
for this blog's title.

Here's what the card said - words in italics were stickers:

Dear Dave & Amelia ~ First you had to be friends. Then you had to fall in love! Then, the 3 little words were spoken...i love you. You both soon realized that you're two peas in a pod, and GETTING HITCHED was the only thing that would give either of you the happy ever after. So...welcome to the magical NOW & FOREVER.
