Time sure does fly. It seems like just yesterday that we were taking those first few hesitant steps along this journey. Today we're celebrating two years of being a DD couple.
When I look back on our journey, I'm amazed at how much we've grown in the past two years. The lessons we've learned along the way have worked to make our marriage stronger than it's ever been.
I stumbled onto the concept of DD by accident. I was following links from site to site and somehow found myself on a site about DD. Initially, the idea seemed a bit crazy to me. Yet something about it intrigued me so I found myself searching out more and more information. Eventually, it didn't seem like such a crazy idea to me. The question was whether it would seem like a crazy idea to Steve. The fear that he would think it was crazy is why it took me over a year to work up my nerve to talk to him about it.
As I look back today, I no longer see me coming across DD as an accident, but rather something that was destined. When you think about how many sites there are on the internet, what are the odds that I would come across a site about DD while following links. I'm reminded of a quote by Deepak Chopra: "There are no accidents...there is only some purpose that we haven't yet understood."
In other news, I finally talked Steve into adding some leather to our collection of implements. He gave his okay for me to shop for something and I ended up getting a leather paddle from Cane-iac. I forgot how quick they ship. I ordered it on Friday and it was here Monday morning. I gave it to him that evening, but he hasn't got a chance to try it out yet because we haven't had the time or privacy. Is it bad that I smirk when I say that?
Also in other news, I hit my limit with the way things are right now. I tried so hard to keep it together through his crazy work schedule and the lack of alone time, but it finally got to me on Thursday. I blame Mother Nature's little gift of hormones for pushing me over the edge. Unfortunately, once I got started, I had trouble stopping so I've landed myself in a bit of hot water since then. I may be regretting that new purchase if we ever get some alone time.
