Two Shall Become One

The other day Tanner asked me if I was going to create a blog for us. (Thanks Sara Adams ;P) So here I am. We are two weeks and one day into marriage and looking back I must have been crazy for thinking life was going to slow down as soon as we walked away from the wedding. Speaking of which, here are just a couple pictures from the wedding. It will be a while before we get the real ones, but we are very thankful for the ones our friends took!

Our wedding day was absolutely the most wonderful day of my life. The weather was as gorgeous as it could be.  Thanks to my mom and our wonderful florist (University Florist), every little detail I had envisioned in my head came to life.  My incredible husband helped me build the cross that we stood in front of. We wanted to make sure everyone knew that God was the reason we were together and celebrating.  He is our stronghold and forever will be the center of our lives together and our household. Wrapped around my bouquet was the sleeve of my mother's wedding dress.  I attached pearl earrings that were my great aunt's - the one I was name after and incredibly close to before she passed away - to my shoes. The isle was marked with old white gloves that have been passed down in our family for years and they were filled with wildflowers (my favorite). My bridesmaid's bouquets were also made from beautiful wildflowers and had antique buttons attached to them. I was so honored to be able to use my grandmother's cake topper on top of my cake. We wanted every little detail of our day to exhibit what meant the most to us - first of all, Christ and behind Him, our family. We would be nowhere without either of these and we are so very thankful. 

We are now getting settled in our new home and getting used to sharing EVERYTHING with each other. We are having fun getting to know the little tidbits of information that come only with living with another person. Like the fact that he is a wonderful coffee-maker even though he doesn't drink it, but he's not so good with an iron. :) But at least he tried! Maverick is adjusting well, also. He loves his new big back yard. There is still a list a mile long of things that need to be done to the house, but we know they will come with time and aren't going to rush our lives away trying to get them done right now. We just want to enjoy the fact that we get to have date night every night! 

Since it is apparently the wifely thing to do, I will attempt at keeping everyone updated with our new lives as frequently as possible. 

"For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I still trying to please man? For if I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ."  Galatians 1:10
