If you had not been reading up to this, I have been away with weddings, funerals, honeymoons, birthdays, and all kinds of eventful things over the past month. Thanks to those who have still been posting, commenting, purchasing, etc. during my absence.
I figured I would update today with some pictures of what I have been up to!
First, on June 20th, I got married! The day was SO perfect and not a single things went wrong the entire day. We were so lucky for blue skies as well, because earlier in the week, it said rain. We had such an awesome photographer as well, Erin Hession, who takes the best photos. In fact, she even had 8 photos printed and ready for us to take home about an our into the reception!!! I am still very patiently waiting for her to post some on her popular blog, but seeing how it is summer, she is very busy and backed up. Still, at least there is something for me to look forward to this summer since all that is left really is the start of school on August 6th-ish (husband starts on the 3rd... .isn't that nuts?!).
Here are some of the photos from the special day... I do not have much yet...
For our honeymoon, we went to Sanibel Island in Florida since the whole swine flu incidents in Mexico. The good/bad news is now we have 800 plane flights that we have to use up in the next 6 months to Mexico or we do not get any of the money back (they refunds did not go though June...). Now we will just take a second trip. I love to travel, so I do not mind spending the money, but I really should be saving now...
Here are some fun photos from the honeymoon including deep sea fishing, a 6 foot by 8 foot sand art of my own version of Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night I made from things on the beach (seaweed, shells, sea plants, etc.) and took me 3 hours to make,... oh and fun food photos!
Two days ago, I also celebrated my 24th birthday. Eric takes me to Benihana every year and we always have a blast. 24 Was not too exciting, but I enjoyed spending time with him and I also got to visit my grandparents with my mom earlier that day.
Yesterday, we went to the memorial service for my grandfather, who passed away last March. Most of the family had to come from far, so we waited until now to have a service. It was bitter sweet, but nice to see all of the family together again. I do not think everyone will ever get together like that, since Grandpa Hanley was the one to bring us all together...
Ironically, the night ended with the wedding of a co-worker or Erics, which happened to be very close to the city we were already in for the service. Her dress was soooo pretty and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Eric and I did not stay long since we did not know a single person besides the bride and groom, plus we had a drive back.
That is all that has really been up lately... I had some large orders of Rainbow Crayons come in for some children's wedding favors for a wedding next week. Boy, if I had any children attend my reception, I would have been set with the perfect wedding favor for them and a way for the kids to stay entertained by coloring with a Rainbow Crayon!
Thanks to everyone who read this all the way though and find what I have done interesting or at least entertaining to read! I will be updating the blog more now and have new items coming to my shop soon!
