Because I thought maybe you’d like to see what I’ve been cooking up behind the scenes here at Medicinal Marzipan.
In 2008 I met Cookie exactly 24 days before I started this site.
In July of 2009 we got engaged.
She is humbly and quietly and lovingly behind absolutely everything that I do in this world. I am able to be here, to be present, and to explore my less-than-sparkly bits, because, through the safe lens of our relationship, I have been able to learn to love myself more than I ever thought possible.
After having my heart shattered spectacularly quite a few times, I prayed for Cookie before I met her. I prayed that someone would hold me so close, and wouldn’t let me wriggle out of it, push them away with my primal fear of rejection, or tendency to micromanage. I prayed to find someone who would believe that we were both better because of what we brought up in the other, both good and bad.
I also want to thank each and every one of you for being here with me during this journey – for witnessing my constant process of breaking wide open and rebuilding myself stronger, brighter, and more honest. Thank you for your outpouring of love around this very special and joyous occasion in my life.
