wedding overview

like most little girls, i had the wedding of my dreams planned out since i was in grade school. although, in the early 90s, my dream wedding was an all denim wedding...i know...pretty awful right? you'll be happy to know that there was NO denim anywhere near our wedding and even without it, it proved to be the most perfect day.

planning a wedding in such a short amount of time proved to be a little bit of a challenge. i think i would be okay if i never had to tie another bow again! my poor husband...he offered to help, but let's be real...i am so much of a type A person that once i saw his attempt to tie a bow, i told him that it was "sweet of him to offer, but that i would do the bows". in code, that means, "there is no way i am letting the bows on our programs look like that!" so, despite my craziness and anal personality, everything turned out perfect.

i thank GOD for providing so many wonderful people who helped out with all of the details. it wouldn't have been as great without them.

Here are a few pictures from that perfect day...

"for I know the plans I have for you declares the LORD. plans to prosper you and not to harm you. plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

GOD, thank you so much for orchestrating the events in my life to bring me to this this man. i trust in YOUR plan for my life...not in my timing, but YOURS. thanks for always proving Yourself to be so faithful. amen.

new beginnings

i have always wanted to start a blog and now that i am married, i figured that right now is the best time. my hope is that this will be a great way to let you guys all know what is going on in and around our lives. GOD sure is doing a lot for Jeramy and me right now. so much is new, hence the title "new beginnings". we just got married, have a new home, and are learning what it means to show the love of Christ through our relationship with one another. thankfully, i have a wonderful husband who turned out to be quite the Godly leader. it is so awesome to watch him grow in his faith. truth inspires me to do the same. my favorite thing is to come home from work and see GOD's Word open on our counter, knowing that he has been looking to it all day long. now, please note the "when i come home from work" in the previous sentence. that is because this is not likely to happen in the morning. i leave way to early and he is still sound asleep. as i leave in the morning, i look over and see him sleeping so peacefully......and i am instantly jealous. :) i know as the weather gets colder in the morning, i am going to want to stay in bed. something tells me i am going to be even more jealous than i am now! ha ha!

again, i hope that you enjoy the blog and get to know our family in a more intimate way!
