As of today, Mark and I have had nine years of wedded bliss, more or less. I had the day off work, and he got home from work earlier than usual so we could celebrate. Continue reading
I was too tired to write last night after I finished processing all the pictures I took during the day, so I’m catching you up now.
Today was the Big Day we’ve been working toward. We got up this morning and took the bedding off the hide-a-bed we’ve been sleeping on in the living room and turned it back into a couch. We cleaned and prepared food and got ready for people to come to our house dedication which we had told everyone would start at 2:00. Our first guests arrived at 2:45. Continue reading
