So we did the dang thing. I married the man of my dreams, I got the romance, the quirky little how we met story, the swept off my feet and married after just a year and a few months. All of it. Our wedding was beautiful but hot and I married on my best friend’s property. The hottest day in May, record heat for that day at 96 degrees for an outside wedding. It was everything I ever dreamed about (well, except the heat). I walked down the isle to the theme from Up! Surrounded by balloons and my nephews walked down in front of me looking like Russell in Wilderness Scout uniforms. It was a great way to have them be a part of it and it fit the theme. We had a brunch wedding with donuts instead of cake and mimosas instead of champagne.
We packed up two days later and headed to New York. It’s taken me this long to get my thoughts together. Life has been fast and furious. We had another get together a few weeks ago with Greg’s family up here in the North. It was great to have his Grandparents and family gathered around us. It was equally as special as our wedding. photo: by Jenna Marie
Now that things are settling down we have our life here in New York, spending time with old friends and making some new ones. Sight seeing between our busy lives in the city. I like the life we have carved out for ourselves. We take little trips to Connecticut here and there to escape the fast city and visit with Greg’s wonderful family. Life in the city is hectic but we love every second.

I have settled into a nice job through a temporary staffing company and if all goes right I will be hired on in January. I love it there and have high hopes that it will work out.
Greg is still very in love with the IT position that moved us up here. His days are long and hard but he comes home bursting at the seams to tell me all about his day. Or he flops on the couch brain fried and when I ask him he still has a smile and tells me his busy days are worth it.
Moggie the cat, he is adjusting to life inside a small apartment. He lets us know often how he feels about this. He wants outside but when we take him outside and all the noises happen he immediately wants back inside. He talks to us and demands lots of petting and treats. He subjects us nightly to “flying cat” as he runs in bursts through the hall that connects our front door to the small 2 rooms…. living room/kitchen and bedroom and bathroom. (It’s small but we are on the back of our building so it’s mostly quiet and cool in the back.) Moggie telling me to pet his head.
Living a full & fast life
