married!
















so it has been a long, long time since i have gotten onto this thing. i am not quite sure if anyone still reads this, but for those few, here is a little update....

changes lately:
- we planned a wedding in 7 weeks
- sent out 700 invitations
- almost 500 people attended both celebrations
- we had an amazing honeymoon
- we moved into the cutest place in the cutest town
- we are even more in love than we thought possible!
{nutshell version}

being married to the right person is the best feeling.
i remembering seeing couples throughout my life who really loved, cared and shared the same goals of etermal marriage was something i have always wanted to emulate in my own marriage and until june 1st, i have experienced it first hand. brady is the most loving, caring, sweetest, most gentle, sincere, kind, humble, benevolent, smartest, and so many other very important "ests" man i have ever known.  there are many near and dear thoughts i have of him that i'll try to spare for the public, but needless to say, i sure am blessed to be his wife.

i'm so grateful jackson has such an amazing example to look up to -- brady loves jackson and jackson sure loves brady.  he is so patient with jackson, so loving and gives him lots of attention.  i love seeing their relationship bloom.

at our rehearsal dinner, my very best friend i have had since i was four was asked to speak by the crowd unexpectedly.  when she got up to talk, she became emotional talking about how she has known me better than any other friend and has been by my side through it all. she started talking about how i would make collages for friends, serve my friends, do anything for my friends but never has she seen a man that is just like me and when she saw that herself, she knew brady was the one.  brady does all that and much more. i really feel so lucky!

not sure if i will continue this blog, but for now, this is what's going on.

where i got my dress - illume gowns
where we got married - LOS ANGELES TEMPLE
