Oh me… Where do I even begin? I guess I could come on here and say I’ve been crazy busy and haven’t had time to blog,and blah, blah, blah, which would be totally true. But to be honest, I just really wanted to take the time to enjoy being married, my new family, our new home, and really just LIFE that I kind of checked out on life for a little while. It’s been the best summer of my life, but now school is back in session which means I have the time to devote to my blog again! I’ve missed you guys! If you follow me on Instagram, by now you’ve seen pictures from our wedding but I figured I would share a few (ok.. maybe a lot) more because it truly was the most perfect day ever! I’ve always wanted to have a surprise wedding, and with the help of the most amazing planner, Ivy Robinson, and swearing my family to secrecy, we almost pulled it off. To be honest, I think most people knew what was happening, but I just wanted the day to be about the love God has brought together and not seating charts, presents, and bridesmaids. Can you believe it was so romantic two couples got engaged?! I have to give our Pastor, David Chadwick from Forest Hill Church all the credit on that one though. I think everyone was crying after the beautiful words he gave. I wanted all of our family and friends to show up wearing whatever they wanted and ready to have a good time at an “engagement party”. It was everything and more that I ever dreamed of and I have a million people to thank for making this the most special day of my life. But as a blog reader, I know you guys are here to see pictures so here ya go!

Mom, thank you for being there every step of the way and Dad, thank you for not complaining about the bill 🙂 I love you both! Also, a huge thank you to Tyler’s parents for letting us take over your beautiful farm for our special day!
