year one: paper

We went the traditional route and got each other 'paper' as our gifts.  Tim MIGHT have had a little help on mine (and, i love it!).  For his, I chose a print of Manayunk where we first met.  While there are a lot of bars there, and we did frequent them - that's not exactly what "where we go to drink" means. 
[self-timer fail, note my face in the mirror]

I pulled this from the etsy site of the artist ,"Manayunk, from the Lenape word "mëneyung" or "manaiung" means, "where we go to drink." In 1824, the town known as Flat Rock decided to change its name to Manayunk, which was a word also used to refer to the Schuylkill river."  Pretty cool, right?  I thought so.  I bought it for Tim thinking he could put it near the bar in our basement.  The print he got me is definitely going in our gallery wall.   It says "The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen all at once. - Albert Einstein".  Lovely handwriting by Molly Jacques.

[better, but still not there yet.  i love this one for some reason.]

I'd better start thinking up "cotton" gifts for year two, since this year already seems to be going super fast. 

[there we go]
Happy Easter!!

5 Years.. it silly to still celebrate your dating anniversary?  We still do.  Yesterday marked 5 years since Tim & I became "official".  We had a party at our friend's house last night, so we'll be celebrating later this week by going out to dinner.  Here's to my better half, the guy who always makes dinner, shovels the snow, picks up the dog poop, and generally takes care of me and our "kids" (Henry & Poppy).  Happy (dating) Anniversay, Babe.

Triumphant Return!

Hello, blog world!  I'm baaaack!  The wedding was even better than I'd hoped for, it couldn't have gone better!  Our vendors were AH-MAZING - please indulge me while I brag about them a bit.  Our florist did SUCH an amazing job on our flowers - they were absolutely stunning.  Our day-of coordinator made everything so seamless, we didn't have to worry about a thing.  Our dj was amazing, his mixes had our guests dancing the night away.   Our venue was so accomodating - everything was taken care of, and then some.   And last, but not least, our amazing photographers.  They were more like friends on the day of, we had such a fun time with them!  They even played pre-ceremony and ceremony pics in a slideshow during the reception.  We only have a sneak peek of their pictures and I already am in love.  I can't wait to see the rest!    Here's a couple from our first look to tide you over. 

And one in color, just for good measure.

Oh, and the honeymoon was pretty darn amazing also.  I will take a week in the caribbean with my husband any day.  Yes, "my husband", it has a pretty nice ring to it, doesn't it? 

Now I'm back at work and coming down from the clouds.  My new part-time job is changing my name (and finishing changing my address, oops.)  What a painful process!  At least I'll probably get a new picture on my license, so that's a win. 

More pictures to come... :)

four years... four YEARS.

Tim and I have been dating 4 years as of today, how crazy is that?  We're getting married in 3 months, so soon we'll have a new anniversary to celebrate.   I guess we'll have to just let go of our dating anniversary?  Oh January 5th, you'll always be special to me.  I may even convince Tim a cupcake is in order every year on this day.  Nothing says happy anniversary like a cupcake.  Tonight we had mexican and margarita's to celebrate + tres leches..aka the most delicious cake ever.  It was perfect.  Happy Anniversay, Tim.  So long, dating.  Hello, marriage - I think I'll like you just as much.

Next Year's Holiday Card..

How totally amazing is this holiday shoot?  I am definitely doing something similar next year.  Oversized lights = instantly romantic and festive, just add plaid and you can't beat it.

Real Bride Blogger

I've decided to make this blog a little bit of everything - instead of all wedding all the time.So I'll be talking about buying (and decorating!!) our first house, DIY wedding crafts, life in general, and maybe even outfit posts (if I'm brave enough). But, on wedding related note, check me out here on Engaged & Inspired every Tuesday as one of their "real bride' bloggers!
