Where did the time go?
Two years ago today, this blog was born. I nervously pushed the bright orange "publish" button and began to tell our story. At the time, I was on the verge of depression and Jack wondered just what to do with me. I was floundering after we had made the decision to retire early. I was a little lost and wondered if this was all there was. We had retirement all planned money-wise, places to go and things to do, but I was not real happy. Jack was at a loss to know what to do. He sensed my unhappiness. He could see my unhappiness. I remember asking him if this was all there was after a lifetime of wanting more and working hard to get to this point.
Then I discovered the blogs and devoured all of it. Working like a graduate student preparing for a big exam, I made my presentation. I asked Jack to begin ttwd with me and he said yes.
Our marriage changed immediately. We experienced the rekindling of intimacy in amazing ways. Our sex life came roaring back and our home became a peaceful place. Jack led and liked leading. I tried on submission for the first time in our long marriage. Sometimes things were smooth and sometimes things were dicey. Yes, there were spankings and things got complicated and then simple. I learned to really follow what my husband wanted and to really listen to him. Mistakes were made, my bottom was often on fire and we made our way to smoother times. The transformation of our marriage is really amazing and we are both happy, touching and loving.
So what are the best parts to share? For Jack and me, our home is peaceful; I like the way he takes the lead and calms me; the intimacy is real, but so are the spankings. The best part for me concerning the blog are the friends I have made. The friends who write behind the blog are the best. They like the privacy and the honesty we share in our exchanges. I have a wonderful assistant who is faithful in helping find the perfect photos. Faithful readers make great comments and then many decide to make the jump to email me. To date, I have met bloggers. I hope to meet a few special readers too. Behind the blog leads to many adventures.
In honor of the blog's birthday, please tell us your favorite post if you have one. I would love to hear which post you really liked and why.
I continue to be the happiest I have ever been and so is my Jack.
