Little by little ...

Lucky for us there aren't too many things we have to adjust to now that we are "married". Things are pretty much the same. Our life, our house and my filing systems for everything are in total disarray, but other than that things are good. Little by little we are getting things back to some sort of normal routine. I finished out the week at work. It was one of those short/long weeks. Did you ever have one of those? Few days but way more than enough work to keep you busy. Well that pretty much sums it up for me.

It was nice being able to take off so i could focus on the wedding. To have some time to just not worry about what time I got to bed even if it was the wee hours of the morning or how late I slept in before starting on projects for the day. Reality was waiting. Impatiently.

So we're both back to it. Life as usual. Married now but overall the same routine. If you're looking for us, we're usually at work or dragging into the house. We certainly aren't the party animals or night owls we (well I) used to be, but life is good. Very good.

The pictures from the wedding are starting to roll in little by little as well. Friends and family that shared it with us are sending me a snapshot at a time. This is one of those times that you feel yourself rushing for the computer when you get home. You can feel the almost childlike excitement to type your password and hope (with fingers crossed, of course) that there are hundreds of emails awaiting you. I don't think we'll hit the hundreds threshold but it certainly is a joy to be greeted with pictures of our special day. I equate it to wading through junkmail to find that fun card someone sent you ... just because they were thinking of you.

So this is me, thinking of you. Here are a couple -tide-you-over photos from my friends. Enjoy!

We finally got HITCHED!!

It's true. Scott & I tied the knot on Saturday, March 1, 2008 at the Trolley Barn in Inman Park.

There is no way to describe the emotions that swirled around us throughout the entire process. The days and weeks leading up to our big day were filled with every emotion you could dream. All intense, all special, all memorable in their own way. We are so blessed to have each other, so thankful to be surrounded by so many people who want happiness & success for us and so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love that has been showered on us. It has been breathtaking ... and as we all know I cling to the notion that the breath taking moments we experience are the ones that make life truly worth living.

There were hundreds of photos taken and I promise to post several for all to see. For this moment though, I just want to pause and continue to be grateful. It is rare to find what we have. He is the best person I have ever known and he has made me better just for sharing in the brief moments we have spent together so far. We are looking ahead at the lifetime that awaits us and we are deeply moved ... and to say the least ... very excited! It is sure to be an adventure.

To all of you we love and to all of you who love us back -- CHEERS to all great times yet to be had!!
