First post EVER

Helllllo world!  Welcome to my little blog...

I couldn't be more excited to start sharing every little detail of my life with every one of you.  ...well, not every detail.  But several.  So why blog?  Why now?  I would like to tell you that it has nothing to do with me loving to hear the sound of my own voice.  E-voice?  Whatever.  The truth is, I love to share.  I love commenting and getting comments and the "like" button and all things-social networking.  But Facebook is all together too limited and too unlimited.  Not enough space to write everything you want to write, and yet some people do not understand or respect the format at all - I mean, as much as I want to read 5 paragraphs about the inside of your child's diaper, I just don't want to hear about it 8 times a day.  Know what I mean?

Enter the blog: all I want to write and nothing you don't want to read.  Feel free to opt-in.  Follow me, or don't.  Comment liberally.  Or just peek in once in a while to see how things are going in HMV-land.

On the docket: 
Me (yeah!!)
Jake
Our army of fabulous friends
Our crazy families
Life in the best city in Oregon
Being an Oregon Ducks fan
Being a lawyer
Being an (amazing) wife
...and someday, we hope, being a mom.  And raising what I am sure will be the most wonderful little one(s) in the world.

We are right on the verge of real adulthood.  Beyond school.  Beyond grad school.  Starting out to establish some kind of career.  And thinking about starting a family.  But before that happens, we have one really big adventure planned: EUROPE!  

EuroTrip 2010 starts in a few days- stay tuned!  Much much more to come...
