I've taken some time off to get married and move to IL but I'm back to say that I survived....the wedding, the aftermath, the move, the unpacking. AND I lived to tell about it! The wedding was wonderful and like everyone says...it went so fast. I feel so grateful to have had so many people help us with the whole day...our friends rock my socks what can I say.
There are some teaser pictures posted at our photographer's blog. Nina at Love & Lemonade is a freaking rockstar. We just loved working with Nina, Howard, and Teresa. I thought we were going to feel uncomfortable in front of the camera because Mark and I didn't do engagement photos but we felt like we were hanging with friends so everything went so smoothly.
Life in Chicago is.....different. What can I say, I'm a Southern California girl. Anything other than So Cal is weird. 1st impressions of moving to IL: the sounds. The gusts of wind are so strong that I thought it was raining...no it was just the wind through the trees. THEN it started raining out of no where. THEN it stopped. Second sound, the suck pump. It's a pump that sucks water so that our basement (yes, we have a basement) doesn't flood. It's constantly pumping out water and it sounds like the garage door opening. Third sound, the snoring. My husband (eeee, I'm married!!) snores and sleeping with someone is weird in itself but sharing a room with someone who snores is....interesting. Gotta love my ear plugs. HAHA I love you hubby! :P
