Something old turned to something new

I was having some fun in Photoshop, editing old wedding pictures and engagement photos, recently and realized how they all look so different. I haven’t looked at original wedding pictures in a long time and so it’s fun to see what other ways I’ve now decided to edit the pictures. I’m also realizing how many different techniques I’ve forgotten since my college days in Photoshop class. I guess this is good practice then!

First Produce of the Season

The first cucumber was picked out of our garden last night. I was so excited.I went out to weed and there on one of the three cucumber plants we have rests a nice big cucumber.

I came running inside in excitement to show my husband and quickly cut it up to taste. Then, realizing I didn’t take a picture of the first ever thing I was able to grow from my first garden planted, I had him take a pictures.

The peppers are also starting to grow, as well as the beans and I sew a few half-red cherry tomatoes!

And yes, if you are able to tell, I got way too much sun over the weekend. My forehead and nose still hurt!

Well, Jon and I finally made it to Boston for our honeymoon – 9 months after being married. We had a wonderful time and learned more about ourselves and each other. Even after 9 months of being married and 3 years together we learned more about who we are and how to work as a team. Lots of maps to follow and decisions to be made – but overall and by the end of the trip we were enjoying every moment together. We ate alot of different types of food and enjoyed it all – and we did alot of sightseeing. We will for sure be going back to Boston at some point in our lives – maybe for a 10 yr. anniversary or something – who knows.

Easter, Spring & fun things!

I’ve been quite excited for spring and finally it feels like it has arrived. It may just be Easter is right around the corner as well – which means I get to stay home and do absolutely nothing for three whole days!
Recently Jon accepted a job in town so we don’t have to move – very exciting! We aren’t sure what path to go down next as far as where to live or what we want to do…but hopefully that can get figured out within the next few weeks. Other than that we have been planning our trip to Boston. I’ve been doing some research and figuring out places to eat and whatnot – but part of me just doesn’t want to plan. I want…wait I need…the adventure to take place.

Jon will soon be a graduate, of which he is very excited I think. He has worked so hard and accomplished so much – but is ready for the working world. Hopefully he will enjoy his time off before that starts though. I know I enjoyed being able to sleep in and just relax for a few weeks before starting my job.

We are celebrating 8 months today – and I’m so thankful. It finally feels like we are married and things are just falling into place. I’m happy for that. In the last few weeks I have tried to focus on being positive and enjoying life – making the most out of what I have. I have tried to not think about what bad could happen, but what great things may happen. It has really helped us grow more as a couple and just remember the reason we took our vows in the first place!

I’ve been doing a lot of experimental cooking (with Jon’s assistance) and it’s been alot of fun. We have liked most of the food, but some we have made note to not try again. I think this weekend is another time we will try something new and see what we think.

In other news, if I haven’t said it yet, my sister is engaged. I’m very very excited for that. I don’t know the exact day of the wedding, but I’m ready to plan and help out whenever. I love weddings! Besides that I’ve been absolutely addicted to Cribbage. I am starting to understand the game and strategies – hopefully I’ll beat my brother 3 games straight soon.

Baby, Boy, Baptism

Celebrating a new little one in our family. Welcome Philip!

Philip Baptism

Another new baby is expected to arrive in the next few weeks for another one, not pictured here, but a sibling of the parents in this pic. Very Exciting! Another boy too – which will be fun down the road as these cousins grow up.
