7 Quick Pictures that Document My Recent Life, Sort Of

  1. another wedding picture, for those clamoring. (I can hear all two of you). I love this one. Thank you, random-kinda-wooden-painted-doors found in Steubenville for the background.
    showing off our rings, kind of. more like showing a pinch of attitude. :)

    That’s a buckeye cake – chocolate cake with peanut butter layered frosting, and a chocolate/peanut butter drizzle on top.
    OH YEAH OHIO.

  3. Husband and I leaning over the water in Murrell's Inlet, SC on vacation...

    Where we then bought delicious, crispy, light:

    HUSHPUPPIES. With honey butter. Yaaaaay, South.

  4. We like to play with the kiddos on vacation and make 'em smile. Isn't she grand?

Then again, when I’m hanging out with ‘Phia [as Maria likes to say], these are the faces we make…

Do you see a resemblance? It's all in the lips, I think.

5. Yes, another food picture. This is an authentic “Maryland Sno Ball”, and it’s how husband and I celebrate our one month married anniversary. The sample you see is a Peppermint Pattie sno ball (I was all fancy and got the one with cream in it. Yum.) 

SNO BALL!

SNO BALL!

6. I’m at my new school in my position as a library media specialist, and kids return on Monday. The school was built in…well, maybe you can guess. This is the mural painted above my office (which is actually the server room). Can you name all the technology in the picture? Old school, y’all. 20140819_112029

7. And now, to explain these last two photos. I have a lot of people to thank for their role in our wedding day (and their role in our marriage!) First off, my mother made my beautiful bouquet and understood my idea of “lots of color all over the place” perfectly. I’m not a flower person but I love my bouquet (and yes, still have it in the living room!) For the record, Mom also made my veil you see in all the wedding photos. I did not get her crafty skills. 🙂

Right now, I’d like to thank Allison Kinyon of Rosaries by Allison. She not only made us the rosary you see wrapped around my bouquet to our custom request, but she is also a lovely person, a faithful Catholic, and a good friend to both of us. Husband has even managed to meet her family while in their neck of the country. And it all started on Twitter. How cool is that?

The other person involved here is Bionic_Nerd, aka @NR4CB. The rosary was a gift to us, but the awesome thing here, is that Mrs. Bionic Nerd happened to take a trip to Rome in the months before our wedding…and she took the rosary you see with her. She was able to attend the canonization Mass for Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II whilst in Rome and Pope Francis blessed the rosary you see in these photos. [Read about her Rome adventure on her blog here.] So… that’s all very cool, and it all happened because I met some great people on twitter. So when you’re lamenting social media, for all its faults, remember the good things.

Not to mention I met my husband and wedding photographer on twitter, so it can’t be all bad.

Catch you next Friday that I have time to write something up. HAHAHAHAHA. We’ll see about that. Keep the faith! 🙂
