the mini-moon

Thursday, August 29, 2013

As promised, here are some snaps from the mini-moon. We had the privilege of staying in a beautiful old victorian bed and breakfast that made us feel like the rich people we aren't. All our time was spent relaxing, shopping, eating, walking and taking ridiculous pictures. It was exactly what we needed after the crazy summer schedule and wedding hullabaloo and before the big move. There's no doubt we'll be back to this little town for an anniversary or two. 

The last one is a sneak peak of the wedding pictures from Jonny Edwin Photography. So very excited to see more! 

P.S. If anyone can explain the logic of blogger constantly re-sizing pictures, please do. Until then, I remain eternally frustrated and confused.

married and moved

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Oh hey! Yeah yeah, I know I went off the radar screen for a little bit. But I got married, alright? Alright.

Anyway, I figured I'd work my way back in to this whole blog business slowly but surely. (Even if I risk breaking all the cardinal rules by neglecting to add any super artsy pictures.) 

So...we got married. And moved. And really really loving it. I feel like I could write for days about all the details of life as a Mrs. but I'll spare you. 

New discoveries include: 

// Realizing how much of a crazed minimalist I am. Turned JT into a Good Will monster and managed to bag up lots and lots of stuff. It's even more satisfying to be able to close dresser drawers all the way than to have extra clothes. Who's with me?

// Watching JT open up the brand new vacuum should have been a commercial. He was so excited about new vacuum technologies, I couldn't even stand it. I love that man.

// I can no longer hide my unexplainable obsession with dish towels.

// JT has enough pocket change to fund the laundromat trips for the entire year and go out for a nice dinner.

Really, life with another person around all the time is just the greatest. Going to the dump with him is fun. (There have been multiple trips). Shopping for household supplies with him is fun. Getting to put our feet up at night and watch a show with him is fun. 

I am excited to continue building our first home together in our new town and grow together one day at a time. To find our rhythm and learn what it's like to do life and ministry together. We are continually finding the Lord's mercies in the midst of the process and it really is beautiful. I know it's not always going to be peaches and cream but right now it is and there's nothing wrong with celebrating that. 

Life's good, we're good. Can't wait to share some pictures.
