The title about sums up my life in the past couple of months. I have been absent from blogging, but not absent from living an abundantly blessed life!
Since I last blogged, I presented my research poster at a research conference in Asheville, North Carolina, visited the Biltmore, graduated with my Master’s degree, spent a week at home with my lovely family, married my best friend, went on a whirlwind of a honeymoon all over the United States (quite literally), got settled into Aaron’s house until we move in late July, fixed a few new delicious gluten free recipes for Aaron & I, bought two bunnies, and got a gym membership that I have been using very often and that is just the highlights… there has been so much going on in my life it seems.
Here are some pictures from the wedding for you to catch up on. All of our honeymoon pictures are on Aaron’s laptop and I hope to have them soon.
Getting ready… the girls deserve a HUGE thank you for helping keep my hair from going limp in the 90-100 degree heat!
I have a HUGE fear of hairspray… little unknown random fact from me! I survived the hairspray attacks thankfully!
I grew up in Roachdale and spent LOTS of time at the Roachdale Hardware picking up farm supplies, 4-H project parts, and just catching up with the locals. Coudn’t resist a picture with this awesome background of the place I will always call home..
My handsome groom waiting on me to make it down the aisle… he admitted he teared up because he was overwhelmed with happiness. My sister-in law Heather confirmed that she saw the tears… I have to admit I had no idea, to me he just looked relieved that I had not decided to run.

Loves boots and asked where mine were for pictures. Sadly I had left them in Texas because they were in dire need of being resoled… Aaron got them for my first birthday together and I literally wore the soles off of them. BUT she did get this picture of all of the men and their boots. Aaron’s came with manure still on them…as I am sure a few of the other guy’s did. HEY it is what boots are for. To be worn and enjoyed.
Probably my favorite picture of the whole event. Some of my most favorite people giving me their love and prayers as they gave me away.
I honestly do not remember much that happened between these two pictures haha who would have thought.
My sister in law, Heather, and our friend Andy played the music for the wedding and did a FABULOUS job!!
A HUGE thank you to my family for all that they did. My Mom made the bridesmaids dresses, one of the flower girl dresses, all of the decorations for the reception, hosted the rehearsal dinner, and did all of the decorations for that also, in addition to my Mom sewing all of the programs and just about everything else that was needed for the wedding. I don’t know how I would have done it without you, even Anne, my brother’s sweet girlfriend. You all are such a blessing to me and I cannot thank you enough!!
