A Few Things...

  1. I love my husband. He's a good man--super supportive, encouraging, and my best friend. I am really thankful for him.
  2. Several life changing events happened within two weeks here. Please pray for us.
  3. God has a plan for my life. It is a good plan even if I don't know what it is at this moment.
  4. I can count my blessings. I can be thankful for the good things God has done for me rather than worry.
  5. I'm not in control but I've got an in with the One who is. :-)

poor strung along blog....

You get so neglected. I never mean to leave you for such long stretches of time but it always ends up being the case.

You deserve better than that faithful, lonely blog.

So I'll try...but please know this might end in heartache yet again--life is awfully busy for this newlywed/churchlady!

We're On A Wedding Blog

Our Wedding is on a blog! It's one of the "Top 10 Weddings of 2010" which blows my mind! You can check it out here. You can see the original post here.

AND hopefully today I will have a much longer post about married life....because I've got to tell you, I love being Chris' wife!

I love being married. It is fantastic!

I've been married just over a month now & I can't tell you how incredibly thankful I am for my husband. I can't tell you how incredibly thankful I am for our apartment. I can't tell you how incredibly blessed I feel. I know I won't be able to effectively communicate how my heart is overflowing with thanksgiving.

God has been extremely gracious to us. We are filled with joy.

On October 30th we headed out from Lovefield to fabulous Las Vegas. We tied up lose ends (marriage license, tux rental) on our last day of singlehood. My beautiful friend Connie drove over from Cali to be with me. I can't even tell you what a TREMENDOUS BLESSING it was to have her there! Our immediate families also flew out.

On October 31st we were married in a hot air balloon....and it was amazing. Our first steps as a married couple were on air.

On November 5th we celebrated with a reception at a flight museum...and delicious cake balls.

Now we're still unpacking (but our pile of items is so small!) and trying to catch up on thank you cards. And I've decided I miss blogging. I want to write up our adventurous journey from singlehood to married life. So stay & more posts are coming!

I'm six days out from being a married lady.


Let that sink in for just a minute. I'm six days away from my life changing.

Absolutely amazing.

I get to marry the man God made for me in six days. In a hot air balloon. In Las Vegas. At 7 in the morning.

I am so thankful! When I start to think about how God orchestrated our relationship, how God has guided/strengthened/grew us into the couple we are now, and how God has fantastic things in store for us that are even better than we can imagine, my eyes water. I am so humbled by this incredible blessing in my life.

6 days & counting!

31 days

I'm getting married in 31 stinkin' fast is that?

The plan: get married in Las Vegas in a hot air balloon on Halloween. It's fun. It's quirky. It's us. Plus it doesn't allow me time to stress out and turn into bridezilla....which actually (i'm sorry to say) is an actual concern. Plus it gives us a moment that's just ours.

We're planning on having a reception in November. We'll show the engagement & the ceremony to our guests, have cake, and celebrate. Those details aren't hammered out just yet but should be finalized by this weekend....which would mean I could send out invitations next week.

I can't wait!
