So.. its been a while, yes? Do you even remember me? Let’s hope so! I promise to be here a LOT more now! Because I have some time on my hands. Because why? Well, let me tell ya! One HUGE thing has changed since the last time I posted, I bet you all know what it is… I’ve gone From Miss to Mrs.. aka…
I posted a few months back about wedding stress and planning and how to move past it all, which was all true, and you got to hear how stressful it can truly be. But I have to say, every once of stress, every misstep, every tiny issue, it was ALL worth it.
Jon and I had the most perfect day imaginable. We still sit back and think “I want to go back to our wedding day.” The entire day was so perfect for us. And it was more whimsical and more captivating than my “dream wedding” vision. It was representative of me, Jon, our style, and our love, and it was the most wonderful day of our lives.
Each detail was so elegantly handled [my mother is a TRUE saint and had my vision at the forefront in helping me]. All in all, the day was unbelievably magical, and at the heart of it all, I got to marry the person I love more than life itself. So, let’s get down to it shall we?
What good is this post without pictures, AMIRIGHT?

A year after getting divorced, Helen Carpenter, thirty-two, lets her annoying, ten years younger brother talk her into signing up for a wilderness survival course. It’s supposed to be a chance for her to pull herself together again, but when she discovers that her brother’s even-more-annoying best friend is also coming on the trip, she can’t imagine how it will be anything other than a disaster. Thus begins the strangest adventure of Helen’s well-behaved life: three weeks in the remotest wilderness of a mountain range in Wyoming where she will survive mosquito infestations, a surprise summer blizzard, and a group of sorority girls.
Yet, despite everything, the vast wilderness has a way of making Helen’s own little life seem bigger, too. And, somehow the people who annoy her the most start teaching her the very things she needs to learn. Like how to stand up for herself. And how being scared can make you brave. And how sometimes you just have to get really, really lost before you can even have a hope of being found.

Every couple has a story. Love stories are my favorite stories. I love hearing how people met, how they fell in love, and how they came to be as a unit, a couple, a form of proof that life is better when you’ve met your match. And so today, I will share mine and Jon’s story with you. Here’s a HINT: it is nothing crazy! But, it started with two mere strangers and ended with two people who depend on one another, appreciate each other, and love each other more than words can ever say. And so, let’s hop to!
