Wedding Planning

I don't want to clog my blog with wedding planning, but I do want to share it with you if you are interested, so I have created a wedding site.


You may RSVP online there, find information, and follow along on the planning if you like. I'm ordering my dress today, so it's starting to get exciting. I tried it on yesterday and it was an easy choice.

On a different note, I'm on administrative suspension from work because I accidentally let my certification expire, so I am temporarily doing a day schedule and have lots of free time. I could be off for 4 weeks. DJ's friend has agreed to take me to Utah for the family camp, so I will get a little vacation out of the deal.


My Wedding Rings

This is my ring. The brilliant sparkle makes it hard to capture the detail. It is around 100 years old and is a family heirloom. Mark gave it to me on our recent trip to Northern Arizona. We camped in the White Mountains, went to the Petrified Forest, walked Flagstaff, hopped rocks in Oak Creek, Sedona, and walked around Prescott, Jerome, and more. It was lovely.Posted by Hello

Getting My Rings

Right before getting my engagement ring we were watching the sunset that is almost peeking out in this picture. We walked down to the lakeside, and Mark was standing behind me with his arm around me while we watched the colors. It was a beautiful moment and we compared it to our relationship... it just gets better and better. He turned me to face him and he was holding the ring at his heart. He couldn't remember what he had planned to say, but no words were necessary. I put it on and we bear hugged while I, of course, cried big happy tears. It is symbolic and ironic that we went straight from that moment to the Petrified Forest. Posted by Hello
