Everything’s Changing

When I was a teenager, I used to listen to Avril Lavigne. One of her lesser-known songs was called “Mobile” and it went like this:

Everything’s changing
Out of what I know
Everywhere I go
I’m a mobile
I’m a mobile

Hanging from the ceiling
Life’s a mobile
Spinning round with mixed feelings
Crazy and wild
Sometimes I want to scream out loud

A little overdramatic, but when you consider that the song was written by a 16-year-old, it’s not that surprising. But it is my default song when I’m going through changes, and needless to say, it recently became applicable again.

The point of this post is to say that I’m getting back into my regular posting schedule (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays) now that all the wedding madness is over. I missed writing so much that it literally made my head hurt, and I missed this blog. I changed both my website domains, so this is now “maajohnson.com” or “maajohnson.wordpress.com”—if you try to get to “maasmith.com” or “maasmith7.wordpress.com,” you will reach a very lovely error page. I tried to get the old URLs to redirect to the new ones, but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t work.

The secondary point of this post is to say that the wedding went well and was beautiful according to everyone who attended. I honestly had no idea what was going on because the whole thing went by so quickly, and I was so nervous I was literally shaking. The official pictures aren’t yet back from the photographer, so here are a few from the honeymoon. (We went on a Carnival cruise to Nassau and Freeport in the Bahamas. I had never partied so hard in my life… and by partying hard, I mean foolishly “dancing” to club music, staying up until 2 in the morning doing said foolish “dancing,” overindulging in food, and generally getting high on life because, you know, it’s not every day you get to go on a honeymoon.)

Me in my natural habitat… staring out the ship’s window and waiting for ideas

  1. Yes, Maggie, it was a lovely wedding, and you are a good dancer! Complimenti! I’m glad you enjoyed your honeymoon and am looking forward to reading your blog “on schedule” again!


  2. “I’m getting back into my regular posting schedule…”


    “…but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t work.”

    You’re right. I keep getting notifications from my blog, and they’re all broken links to your blog. 🙂 (Well, it’s in a good cause.)

    “I was so nervous I was literally shaking.”

    When I got married, I was cool as a cucumber until the moment came to put the ring on her finger. At that point, my hand started vibrating so wildly that I was afraid I would end up tossing the ring across the room. I grabbed my wrist with my other hand, and together we managed to get ring on finger. Teamwork.


  3. Congratulations ❤ I'm glad the wedding and the honeymoon went well! Wishing you and the husband a beautiful future. It's only the beginning of a lovely journey! Always hold hands. After 11 years of marriage and still going strong, it's little things like that that keep my heart fluttering.
