I can’t believe how quickly 2016 flew by. In January Matt and I got engaged, and by the end of December we were married! Our wedding turned out perfectly and I have hundreds of photos of our big day! While I can’t possibly share them all with you, I picked some great photos that truly showcase how beautiful our day was.
It’s here, folks. Can you believe it?! Matt and I are less than 48 hours away from getting married. Many of you have known me since Matt and I had only been together for about six months! I can’t believe the day has come and I couldn’t be more excited…and tired.
A while back I decided that I would take December off of blogging. I’m getting married on 12/29/16 so I want to be able to focus on the wedding and Christmas without any added stress. Blogging isn’t stressful at all, but I don’t want an extra to-do list hanging over my head. My brother is also coming home on leave, which is why Matt and I are having a December wedding in the first place! I want to be able to spend as much time as I can with my baby brother before he walks me down the aisle on my big day.
This has been a big year for Matt and I. We got engaged in January and right now we’re in the process of buying a new home. We close on June 30th and move in the weekend of July 1st! Our wedding is on 12/29/16 and as soon as we move into our new home, the wedding planning must proceed. In the midst of purchasing our new home, which is on 1/3 acre, I was thinking about some of our wedding plans. While pondering how fun the event will be, an idea came to my head. Why not have the wedding rehearsal dinner at our house since our new home is so much bigger than our current one and the yard is massive and gorgeous? Brilliant. I ran it by Matt and my mom, who both agreed that it’d be perfect. The best part? Dogs are welcome! That’s right, I’m having a dog-friendly wedding rehearsal dinner.
Man, a lot has been going on. This year has been absolutely insane! Many of you have been following our journey for years and since so much has happened as of late, I figured I’d update you. Not all of the updates are good ones but at least you’ll be up to speed.
