Sorry it has taken so long for us to give an update! I plead, “getting used to married life”. It has taken a lot of getting used to, being married… living in an apartment, sharing a bed, the quietness of not living with so many brothers and sisters. It might be TOO quiet. I often find myself eating in front of the television because it is so quiet at the table. I do see my family frequently though, its nice that I work so close to “home” and can visit often. Its funny how homesick one can become, even when you only live 15 minutes away! Anywho, on to a recap of the past few months!
I guess I should start with September 1st, our wedding day! It was such a wonderful time! We had the help of so many friends and family, so everything came together very nicely. (THANK YOU! You know who you are!!) Props to those who transformed the sanctuary from a huge men’s breakfast, to the beautiful scene for our guests to behold! Much of the day went by in a blur, I remember crying only once, while getting ready, and being giddy, giggly, and having a blast during the ceremony. It was truly a wonderful day full of love and joy!
We had a very lovely relaxing honeymoon, both at home watching many many movies, and spending a few days at the Springs Resort in Pagosa Springs, CO. It was so relaxing to sit in the natural hot springs and do nothing for a while. After the week was up, it was straight back to work for the two of us, but before we dove I too deep, we celebrated my 21st birthday! (Still getting used to the fact that my teen years are behind me) I spent it mostly at work and teaching a wonderful group of kiddos at His School (hisschoolofdance.org for more info! ) but afterwards my HUSBAND and I went to dinner.
The past few months have been a real test for Jay and I, learning more about each other’s habits, likes, and dislikes. Even though it has been trying at times, it always seems that God always pulls us even closer together. I am so comforted that He has given me this amazing, God-fearing man to take care of me. I am amazed at how patient Jay is with me with my forgetfulness and occasional indecisiveness. You know that feeling that you were given the best gift in the world? Well that feeling is small in comparison at how I feel about God taking care of me through Jay.
Thank you to all of you who have supported Jay and I through the years, we really could not have come this far without you!
