My thoughtful, sweet husband brought me home an arrangement of flowers. It is always such a treat being given flowers. They were originally displayed in a big vase all together. However, desiring to brighten up multiple rooms, I split the bunch up into two vases. So, now I can look at them in the kitchen and the living room! I absolutely love the bright colors - great choice, Andrew!

And so that you do not feel left out, please enjoy the flowers with me:

Status change: Married.

Since I last "blogged," quite a few changes have taken place. First of all, I'm married. On May 29, 2011, Andrew and I said "I do" in front of 200 and some people. I can barely remember specifics - the weeks and months leading up to that day were such a whirl wind of activity. Once our wedding day arrived, it seemed ridiculous that it was over in just a few hours. However, that was it. A rushed, beautiful wedding day. But, time didn't stop flying then. After spending a week in Jamaica for our honeymoon followed by two weeks in Florida for Andrew's reserve duty, we came back in time to help Sarah and Josh prepare for their big day. Another week of wedding preparation led to July 9, 2011, when Josh and Sarah entered marital bliss. Now they are back from their honeymoon packing to move. Oh, and Faith & Jared just celebrated their 2nd anniversary.

After these months of madness, I'm finally getting a chance to look at pictures for the FIRST TIME. It is bittersweet looking at the hundreds of photographs I snapped because they're good memories, but memories... past. gone. never happening again.

When did we all grow up and get old enough to get married!!!? When did Hope become a teenager instead of that fuzzy headed baby?
