We did it, just a little shy of three years after meeting in 2008. We got married! It was a very small ceremony in my favorite church, Trinity Lutheran Church in Murdock Nebraska. We had many friends that we wanted to invite, but decided that second marriages called for something a little less extravagant, and less formal. It still was bigger and more detail oriented than I had initially planned and conceived, but turned out to be very nice and fun and now I’m glad I went the extra few steps and added the small details that made a difference.
Several friends gave me tips, and suggestions to include at the wedding. Considering I had less than 30 days to plan the wedding, it was very helpful. I am also very grateful for Andy McDonald at Mirror Images Photography for the wonderful memories he captured. I am indulging and not using my own photography today, but today I was the subject of the photographs and I do have to say, it felt a little strange. Not used to being in front of the camera.
He caught us being playful, and intimate and I can’t decide which one is my favorite. So enjoy a few I have picked out. As you can see I have jumped around a bit in my numbering. I plan on going back and filling in the blanks. So stick with me and I’ll finish up the year with a bang.
In the past two months I have sent my youngest son to Marine boot camp, bought a new house, held an estate sale in Connecticut, took a vacation on Block Island RI, moved two teenagers into my small house, planned a wedding, got married, moved into my new house and now planning a reception/house warming in a week. Followed by attending my sons Marine Corps graduation in San Diego in just three weeks.
Did I say I would catch up,…we’ll see.
