Planting Roots

 We bought a house back in mid March.  If you can believe it, our sellers forgot about the closing and were out of town.  We were able to sign our closing docs but had to wait a few days for the sellers to sign their docs and send them to the title company.  After eight months of apartment living, we were so excited to get into our own home again. We had a few projects we wanted to get done before moving day at the end of March, but I was fifteen eight months pregnant so we didn't waste any time tackling/scheduling the projects and getting moved in.  Moving in the third trimester of pregnancy is interesting.  This control freak did not like sitting back and watching everyone else do the heavy lifting.
I took these pics when we got the keys to the house before any work had been done.  Some of them aren't great, but I wanted to remember what our house looked like on day one and how it has changed/changes as we make it our home.

Rain or Shine

Nine years ago yesterday, it rained sideways on our outdoor wedding rehearsal.  After a stressful day of last minute wedding prep, the thought of a downpour on our wedding day was more than I could handle.  With a crowd of friends and family around us, I turned to Lance, buried my head in his chest, and burst into tears.  On that day, and every day since, he has been strong for both of us when storms have come our way. For this, and many other reasons, nine years ago today, I said "I do" on a perfect Colorado afternoon.  We've had sunny times, and we've certainly had storms, and I am so thankful he is the one I get to walk beside through both.  Happy Anniversary Mr. Kirk!
