The mailbox came out of the Sampsons garage like so many of the decorations did. I had seen a couple of ideas and with a couple of cans of spray paint and a few
minutes on my CriCut our mailbox was born. But of course no DIY project is complete without LED lights; so once you opened the mailbox it literally glowed… your welcome. We are hoping that at some point we can use it as our actual mailbox.
Since our flower girl was too young to walk we figured we’d have her escorted in style. Let me just tell you Facebook Market Place is the best thing since sliced bread. I found not only the wagon but the skirt to go along with is, with a little fabric, some signs (with lights of course), and just a tad faux fur Lyra was escorted in style down the isle.
The chalkboard came from Mintage Designs while we were prepping for our Engagement party. It served double duty and welcomed our guests to the ceremony. It took me about 2 hours on the Sampson’s living room floor to do the design and it still hasn’t been erased I just can’t bear to erase it.
We are exactly one month post-wedding so to celebrate here is a blog post of a few of the details (hopefully more to follow). One would assume that there wouldn’t be a whole lot of knitting where weddings are concerned. … Continue reading →
We ask that if you have not already done so that you get those RSVPs in the mail. The deadline is March 4th (this Saturday) and we are trying very hard to complete all those last minute details. I have … Continue reading →
We have managed to keep this blog as un-political as possible. (Well as un-political as a lesbian wedding website can be). However I read a quote today that inspired me to speak up and hopefully to educate. “If you are … Continue reading →
As many of a you are aware, Krystal has been looking for new opportunities in regards to her career. As a search for a new path began we were very narrow minded in the possibilities a new job could mean for us and or lives. As the search continued we allowed ourselves to branch out and consider new cities, and even new careers. This resulted in many applications in the Houston and San Antonio area and two applications in the Corpus Christi area.
As fate would have it months after a application to a job in Corpus an interview came along and then another and then another. As of a few weeks ago Krystal was offered a job at Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi. Krystal and I mulled over this offer, talked every aspect through, went to the people we always go to for advice our family and friends and have decided to accept the offer. That’s right, we are moving to Corpus Christi!
The part of leaving our dearest friends and family behind is gut wrenching. The part where I have to leave my students, my kiddos, brings me to tears instantly as I think of not seeing them everyday. However, there is so much for us to look forward too, living close to Krystal’s family, living closer to my Dad, Mother and Grandparents, having to many babysitters to count for the dogs and hopefully our future children. This is a new adventure and journey for us or as my Dad would say a new season. A season of which we are very excited and sad about, but one that will bring with it new challenges and joys.
What does this mean? Well, Krystal and I will again be doing long distance once she starts her position at the end of February. The wedding will still happen in Houston on April 15. We will spend our first few months as a married couple apart (I don’t want to think about that yet). I will move to Corpus after the school year ends in June. We will begin the process of moving our things and renting our house after the wedding. (Any volunteers to help or reference to the house would be greatly appreciate)
We thank each of you for the support and encouragement you have already showed to us and the friendship and love you will show to us in the future.
It is December, our favorite month of the year. Not just because it’s my birthday but because we get to cuddle up on the couch with our puppies in front of the Christmas Decorations and the cozy fire. Over the past four … Continue reading →
