2010 at a glance..

Well we started the year off engaged and awaiting word on the annulment; then, after months and months of waiting, in January we decided we were going to tie the knot in April. So the year started off with planning and getting things together for the wedding! First was the bridal portraits in March. Meegan Weaver did such a wonderful job! I would recommend her to anyone!

With help from friends and family the invitations, decorations, and food came together nicely.

We decided to do the First Look before the ceremony because we thought it would give us a chance not to be so rushed after the wedding with pictures, and we were right! Not only did we get all the pictures out of the way, we got to see one another all dressed up. My nerves were going crazy before I saw Ryan (to the point I thought I was going to burst out in tears for know good reason) and once we saw each other I felt like time stopped just for us. It was amazing, truly amazing...

The reception was soooo much fun! We had blast! Great music, great food, great drinks, and GREAT FRIENDS!

Once the festivities were over, off to Portland we went!

Once we were back it was all work no play. We started working on the house a little more steady. I'm not sure what month it was but during the summer Ryan decided he was going back to college! He started at the first of September and was so excited! We also moved into the Charlie house at the beginning September. October started off with an annual trip to Fredericksburg for Oktoberfest.

The fall consisted of work and Ryan going to school. He finished off his first semester with a 3.0!! Next, came our first Christmas as a married couple! Pictures to come soon :)

And that's it! 2010 was great and I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for us :)


  1. Did you come to Portland for your honeymoon?! How cool! I live in Portland and that makes me somehow feel special :) And if you didn't, then I'm still glad you had a fun time in Portland!

  2. Yes! We have had a ton of people ask why we chose Portland. We had been wanting to go prior to the wedding and when we couldn't decide on where, Portland it was!! We had such a great time. We walked everywhere for 4 days and decided to rent a car one day to do the scenic route to the Columbia Groge and then to Canon Beach to see the ocean! It was amazing. We are wanting to visit again for an anniversary so we can see more. :) We got a funny response when we told people we were honeymooners! We stayed at Hotel Deluxe, it was nice and comfy!
