Please note: I will NOT be doing a PM list for this diary. I am however, going to try to post every second Sunday. If I know there will be a change in the schedule, I will try to let you know before-hand. Entry Number: 1 Oh my! I can?t believe I am starting a diary at my age. I used to do this as a small girl. But Owen did give me this beautiful new data-pad for a wedding present. It would be a shame not to use it. Let me do an introduction entry. I used to always do that when I started a new diary as a girl. My name is Beru Whitesun Lars. I am 20 years old and I have been married for exactly one week. My husband is Owen Lars. We met a few years ago in Anchorhead and I have been in love ever since. I?ll admit, Owen is a bit rough around the edges, but once you get past that, he truly is a big softy. He took me to sweet-hearts canyon to propose at sunset after we had been dating for a year and a half. We were wed six weeks later. It was a small ceremony. I wore my Mother?s lace wedding dress and he wore a dress tunic and pants. My entire family was there and my father walked me down the aisle. Owen?s father and a few of his friends were there too. Owen and I had a beautiful honeymoon in a hotel in Anchorhead that one of my sisters, Dama, owns. Now we are home at the Lars homestead. Owen is just getting ready for bed and I am already in it. Cliegg, Owen?s father, gave us this homestead and farm as a wedding gift. He still lives here, of course. He was severely injured when Shmi, his wife and Owen?s step-mother, was taken by Tusken Raiders and he tried to rescue her. Shmi died after her son, Anakin tried to save her. Anakin is a Jedi. He came here with a senator he was protecting, Padme Amidala. Padme and I became friends while they were here and I hope, one day, to see her again. I see Anakin all the time in the news. He is the poster boy for this dreadful war going on. Anyways, back to Shmi and Cliegg. We all miss Shmi terribly. She was such a kind woman. But Cliegg has changed since she died. He used to be so full of life, now he barely comes out of his room. I am worried about him. Perhaps I will try to get him out for a stroll tomorrow, since it is now my duty as woman of this family to care for him while Owen works out in the field. I think Owen is almost done in the ?fresher. I?d better save this and go.
