5things


Hello friends, 
     I hope your week has been amazingfantastic! If you ask me for a "short week" it has sure crept by! I am ready for the weekend and the amazingness that will take place. (Yes I did just make up that word, I do that sometimes) 
     This week, I'm going to give you a bonus, It's 5things +1! That's how thankful I am today.


     1. 2 Well working feet that have carried me through life and all over this world. Don't underestimate the blessing of simple things.

     2. Wearing 2 matching shoes, again I say don't underestimate the simple things, my sweet TOMS are reunited if only for a while. Also if you haven't could you take a look at my options for new TOMS and tell me which ones you like best. 
     
     3.Rain, after a HOT holiday weekend, we are so in need of rain. My father-in-law is a farmer, and his livelihood depends on the rain. I can't ever feel grumpy when we have a rainy day because I know it is a blessing.

     4. Quiet evenings at home, Which I get tonight. It's just awesome. Yummy homemade food and time alone with my hubby. For this introvert nothing beats it! I get as excited as a kid in Disney World. 

     5. Cooking. My momma taught me well, and I really love doing it. The real thing I am grateful for is the fact that the good Lord has given me a decent knack for it. It's so satisfying to cook delicious healthy food for my husband and I. Maybe sometime I'll do a recipe tutorial, would you guys like that?  


     +1! My Church. Not only is it an awesome place to come and fellowship, my Church The Crossing:Hannibal has become my family. At a time where E and I are living away from our families they have reached out and loved us, and we love them. We recently moved into a new church building that is actually an old renovated theater! We are  also getting ready to open a new ministry, a coffee shop called The Crossing Cafe'. I am so stoked that I get to be a part of this and that it's finally taking off! If you live in the Hannibal area, you should take a look and find out for your self why The Crossing is so amazing. http://www.thecrossing.net/hannibal.html  



Been so blessed I am busting at the seams of my list.
I know there are no pictures today, I have been kind of Lazy with my camera (which I need to have cleaned) but I'll be back with vengeance and my camera this weekend! Love all my Peeps and by the way if you read regularly you should follow me! 
<-------------------- Right over there, you can join and you will know whenever I post. Plus it would just make me happy! :) 

Have a great evening friends!

In the quiet places

It's watering day!

     For as long as I have been working at my job (which is 1 year on June 2nd) Wednesday has been watering day! I try to remember to water all of our resident plants at the dealership, and that in turn reminds me indulge my lil plants at home as well. That's the story behind watering day! Now you know.
     Have you ever had those times in your life that you get the feeling "it doesn't get much better than this"? Right now I am basking in the glow. I have been married just over a year, we both have jobs, we have a great little place of our own, we love our church and the friends there. Sure there are things that could always change but it sure doesn't seem like it could get much better than this. This is the spot I have been craving for years. 
     Let me explain, while I was in high school, I knew bigger and better things were in store and I was eager to get there. Then while I was in college I was never really at home. Always moving every couple months between school and home. I was always saying I just missed my living room. Ha, not my bed or my family, I missed the living room and the quiet time spent there. So now I am here, on the other side of so much growing and learning. I regret that it took me a year after actually graduating and getting married to get here but I am at last. 
     All that to say now that I am here, I am so peaceful. In my heat. Peaceful. I want to give thanks for it, I want to remember My God's faithfulness to get me here, I want to soak up every single second. Every day is a reflection of his grace, that I do not deserve, but have been freely given.
     I'm not so naive to think life is going to stay this way, but right now I am taking this time to grow and to stretch. My hearts cry right now is "God change my heart. Please make in me a heart after yours. Be preparing me for the next time that isn't so 'quiet'".
     After a period in my life that I look back and am ashamed to say I don't even recognize myself, I am relieved to say I am feeling more like me than I ever have. I am also striving to set stable roots. Not in a certain place but in my faith, so that there may not be a next time that I ever stray so far from who I am and what I know to be truth. 

Truth. He is my foundation.
Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his," and, "Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness." 2 Timothy 2:9

Truth. I am forgiven and loved.
If we confess our sins, [God] is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness" 1 John 1:7

Truth. I am Called.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

Truth. I am secure.
Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God, who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge. 2 Corinthians 1:21
  
These are beautiful truths. I never ever again want to forget them. I know there are lessons I learned as I crawled through those long days but I never want to not recognize his touch in my life, I never want to look in the mirror and be haunted by the look in my own eyes. So I am striving, running after, pursing my God in every way I know how. I want to be a fierce, brave warrior, waiting and bow drawn the next time the enemy shows his ugly face. 

So for now I cherish, I savor and I soak up. Every. Single. Second. 

 He and I, soaking up some sunshine and some life, last night before small group.

Tuesday...Er Monday... MondayTuesday!

Hello there, 


I don't know about you but I just got back from a long weekend I'm a little confused as to what day it is... but it was amazing! We packed so much into those three days,It would take forever to tell you about all of it. How about I show you instead.  
We like to eat.    Especially BBQ, don't tell my husband but I much prefer a good charcoal grilled burger over anything else! I prefer it even more then I am eating surrounded my my very nearest and dearest. My aunt and uncle were visiting from mexico so E and I drove down SUnday night to spend the day with my family. My other aunt, and my grandpa came for lunch and it was most supreme Memorial Day picnic I have ever seen! 
Puppy dogs.    Around my house and my parents house, we love them. We love to pet them we love to snuggle them, we love to take pictures of them, we even love to play cards with them (see below) Don't you love those puppy dog eyes. These two have that look down pat! Lily (on the left) was actually afraid of my camera, so that is more of a "Don't shoot me" look. Toby (on the right) He is just a love pup and was shooting me the "Pick me up and love me" look.
We played games.    When there are ten people in the house it's always a blast to break out the games! We went through countless rounds of apples to apples. This games is infinitely funnier when played with my 17 year old brother, my energetic Aunt Becky and my logical thoughtful grandfather. I adore the mix of personalities. I also love when you catch someone off guard (like my Aunt Teri above) and their laughter fills the house!
     This was all just one day of our holiday weekend but it was an amazing blessing to me to have all of those wonderful people under one roof even for just a few hours. I am blessed that my husband was able to see parts of my family that he hasn't seen since Christmas! It was just amazing all around.
     I am so thankful for my family, no matter how near or far they live. They are all so dear to me and I love them so.
How did you spend your Memorial day weekend?

 Do me a favor and pop over here and tell me what you think I should buy. I need as many opinions as I can! :) Pretty Please!

Decisions, Decisions

Hey there friends,

     In the two months now that I have had this lovely little blog I have come to think of all of you as my very dear and personal friends and I have a very important decision I need your help with. 
     

     SHOES! Laugh if you will but I was blessed enough this last month with a birthday voucher for 2 pairs of new TOMS. If you have never heard of them you should really check out their website. www.toms.com 

They have an amazing mission from the brilliant mind of Blake Mycoskie. You see when you purchase a pair of TOMS their organization sends a pair to a child in a developing country that doesn't have shoes. One for one. How cool is that? 

So here in lies my conundrum. They have grown in the few years and have so many neat new styles I just can't decide. 
 I already have two pair that I love so much and wear ALL the time.

I own

 Navy Classics (they have been VERY loved)

. . .


 
 The Academy Classics
I adore these. Cute, quirky and classy all in one. 

I must say I like the look of the new ballet flats that they have released but I am a bit skeptical of the sizes. Having read the reviews, if I am going to order them online I want to be SURE of how they are going to fit. For that reason I am going to stick with a version of the classics. So these are what I have narrowed it down to. 

The Green Apple
I love the color! They would add quite the POP to any outfit. Shoes don't have to match anything right?
. . . 
 
The Earthwise Slate
A take off of the Classic black. They have a bit of a sheen to them and would be VERY versatile.
 
. . . 

The Tangerine
Another bright and fun color I could see myself wearing these all through the summer and fall!
. . . 


Tropical Plaid
I'm not normally one for patterns but these last two just seem so fun and spunky they caught my eye. I love the combo of the purple with the bright blue in this pair.

 
. . .

Summer Plaid
Lastly this pair is actually a men's shoe and that might be enough to drop it out of the running but I love the big bold plaid pattern! I can't resist it!

. . . 

So tell me what you think. I have to pick two. For now. :) 
What are your top two picks from these? Won't you help me send TWO new pairs of shoes to someone without?

May Birchbox

     I must admit I always so look forward to getting my lovely little birchbox in the mail. It's like Christmas each month, and I love that others have found and fallen in love with it like I have. 
   This month had a theme again, like when they did the Teen Vogue boxes? These were Gossip Girl themed. That's one thing I have to get over. I'm not a big fan of what I know of the show. I know I can't judge till I have seen it but... I don't plan on it. Anyway the goodies inside were as nice as always! 

I give them props, I love the way they package the boxes. Classy, Simple, Just lovely. 

Like I said, packaging! You open the box and there is even more to open. Boxes, bows, ribbons! 

Dr. Jart Water Fuse BB cream

This is something I have heard a lot about but have never actually tried. A BB cream, personally I hear BB and I think either Bed and Breakfast or my little brother's first Daisy Rifle but that is beside the point. In this VERY shiny bottle we have a super product,it moisturizes, it heals, and it has a tint! I think I am sold.   
Stila Liquid eyeliner
 How fun does this look? And, it's not even out of it's package yet. This neat lil eyeliner is a liquid but it goes on like a felt tip. It's lovely and shiney and smooth. Time will tell if it's something I would actually wear on a regular basis but it sure is fun for special occasions!
Bvlgari
 There is always something I am not totally sold on. This month, the perfume wasn't for me. I am really picky on scents that I wear and have to smell all day. I liked the smell of this it was light and kind of floral, but it reminded me a bit too much of my grandmother's Chantilly. Plus it stayed REALLY strong all day.
Ojon Voluminous conditioner
 This was a nice treat to receive, I had yet to get any hair products in my boxes. So it was lovely to get this, especially since it is something I am always searching for, a good light and lifting conditioner.
TwistBand Hair tie
 I love pony tail holders! As any girl with long hair can attest they are a necessity! This lil guy was a fun twist on the regular old black hair band. I could see using these even if they don't have a real strong grip. My only qualm is the price, I go through bands like water... I can't afford to pay too much!
OXOX Notecard

 I liked this cute little card. Keeping it simple, but it's not quite my style, I prefer things a but more rustic, more hand drawn style. But it's nice, I'll use it. 


Honestly This was a fun box to receive. Out of the 6 items there 4 I will probably use up before my next box arrives and the other 2 will go in my "for guests to use" basket! Thanks so much Birchbox! Keep up the good work!

High 5 for Friday

Friday is here, we made it! 

How has your week been? I have actually had a really great normal slow paced week. Hot tea in the mornings snuggles in the evenings. Its a pretty sweet life. It's time again for High 5 for Friday! With Lauren, From My Grey Desk.

Here is my Top 5 this week.

1. Sewing. Just in general I love doing it, I love the projects that result. I just love it. 
  Here is my latest project.

2. 3 day weekends. Yes it is finally here, my first day off in several weeks. I get to spend it not only with my family but also my amazing HUSBAND! We hardly ever get a day off together and this one is going to be awesome. 

3.These amazing people! I get to see them on Sunday! My Tia Becky and Tio Mike are missionaries that live in Mexico. They come home to the states for a few weeks in the spring and this year I actually get to see them... last year I was a bit caught up in getting married ;)


4. Coffee. The new Coffee Bar opening at my church more precisely. I am so stinking excited! It's going to be amazing. Just one more week! Coming soon The Crossing Cafe'

5. My comfy big black glasses and being able to get my hair up into a big fat bun on top of my head. I rocked that look all day yesterday!
So what are you loving this week? Summer break? Warmer temps? Vacation plans?

So much to learn

Hi ho neighbor,

     I hope the week has treated you well so far. It sure seems like I have been busy but I can't for the life of me remember just what I was busy doing.
     You may have noticed that things look a little different around here. I have been admiring several of the blogs that I read on a regular basis and being the do-it-myself kind of gal I decided to learn how to clean up my blog. I have just enough background in graphic design and I know my way around several design programs I wasn't about to pay someone to do something I could do. I hope you enjoy the results. I am going for simple and classy.
   Also earlier in the week I promised some updates on my "busy" life! As you know last week was my anniversary, I was a very blessed girl and got flowers and cake!






















Also Ethan and I decided to try our hand at a photoshoot where I was in the pictures and taking the pictures! Boy do I need a wireless remote! 



     Also last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the best "Woody's Roundup" birthday party. My buddy Oliver turned three last week so we celebrated on Saturday with one of the cutest birthday parties I have ever been to.

     Is that not the rootin'est tootin'est little cowboy you have ever seen? His momma,mad the cake and the all the decorations to match Woody from Toy story. They even had a cowboy boot pinata, that one of the older cousins dominated!

    Lastly something that I have been working on for a couple days. I have been making a purse for a friend of mine. I have been sewing since I was bout 8 years old and I didn't use to love it but the older I got and the more I practiced the better I got. I began to enjoy sewing more and felt VERY satisfied when I could complete a nice project. This is my second purse I have made and must say they are just the right mix of fashionable, functional and fairly quick to assemble. Here is my finished product!
 
 Having made done this once before I was able to play a bit, and add some fun details. This really is something I could do for a living. 
     Of all this fun I have been having the one thing I have concluded is I have so much still to learn, but you know I enjoy learning it. From blog editing to purse making there is always something I can learn!

What have you learned lately?

The sound of the shutter

Hello there,

     I'm about to share with you all a part of me that I have just talked about in the past. My Photo-ness! I am a shutter bug and I have been for some time. The first time I really remember engaging when I picked up a camera was my junior year of high school. I got my first real digital camera, it was just a point and shoot but I spent hours trying out all of the different settings. I was hooked. I had that camera for years and it went with me all over the world the summer after high school documenting all of my travels. 
     It wasn't until I got to college that I seriously considered pursuing photography as anything more than a hobby. I got my little self into a photography class and got my hands on a SLR (single lens reflex) and I was completely sold. I knew one day I would be a "real" photographer. I had two years of training in college along side my other classes as well as doing work with the PR department at school.
    Since then I have kept my work mostly to friends and family, doing some couple and engagement shoots as well as some seniors. My goal is to continue to shot and to grow. I want to spend my time gathering info, taking classes and becoming the very best I can at what I love.
    I love being behind a lens and I love the post-processing. There is nothing more satisfying then seeing the look on someone's face when they see a finished piece. It's my art. It's my craft. It's my love. 






     Here is shoot I did just a little over a week ago with my brother Daniel and his girlfriend Heather. They were a joy to work with. They have a very easy manner between them that made it so easy to get amazing natural shots. The day may have been very warm but they didn't show it! Thank you two so much for allowing me to be part of this afternoon with you.

Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel

Stay tuned peeps, I promise I didn't disappear I have just had a string of busy days that is continuing on into the week! I have so much to share with you I just have to get some pictures edited to show you all! 

And now a post in a list...

A. I think I have an unhealthy love/obsession for peanut butter. Seriously the cravings for it are up there with chocolate and coffee!

2. In the last week I have been on two shoots! (ok, so they were both someone related to me or me, myself but I don't care I got to shoot!)Either way I am so excited to edit and upload these beauties for you all to see!

Q. I got to spend a whole day this weekend shooting with a Canon 7D. Holy cow, it was amazing. That is my dream camera and one day when I get rich and famous I will have one. Until then I will be satisfied borrowing my dear friend Julie's camera and being the paparazzi at her son's adorable birthday party. Shameless plug; If anyone out there just has a Canon 7D to give away I would give it a very good home!

47. Excitement and disappointment can be wrapped in one. On the one hand I am sad I will not be able to travel to my parents house this weekend and see my Aunt and Uncle who are in town from Mexico, but I will be home for the (fingers crossed) grand opening of the coffee bar at church! I am so jazzed about this you have no idea! (In the mean time I have 6 days to get all my gear together, get a name picked out, and people trained gotta boogie!) 

Z. Tonight marks a milestone in our home. Tonight is the 2 hour SERIES finale of House M.D. E and I have our whole evening planned around it. Our conversation over lunch went like this.     E: So what are the plans tonight?
     Me: Well the finale starts at 7... I still need to grocery shop, work out, get some laundry in and do supper. What about you, what needs done before it begins?
     E: Well, I need to get my truck cleaned out. That's about it how about I help with supper so we can both be ready?
     Me: Sounds like a plan! Ok hands in.... and...BREAK! 
Just a small look into our crazy life!

%. I serve a good God you know that? I woke up this morning in a foul mood. I'm not sure if it was a case of the Monday's, or if it was yesterday's long hours still catching up with me but I was definitely a Mr. grumpy gills. Everything was gloomy. 
   Then something amazing happened I paused, I prayed and then I began to count my blessings. You know what? I began to feel better and about 5 minutes later I came across one of my favorite devotional books and that foul mood, it was no where to be seen. 
   I also had a small tap on the shoulder from the Lord. In my job I cross paths with so many people in one day I can' afford to sit and stew in my bad mood. What if I am the only glimpse of Jesus one of them sees today? Am I doing my job representing Christ? 
   Needless to say that got my attention and after just a few minutes to having to "try" to be in a good mood I didn't have to try anymore. It never ceases to amaze me that if I just ask, He is there. Shaping and molding me.

     That is just about all that's been floating around in my head today. So stay tuned in the next few days and be looking out for posts with pictures from my shoots, a weekend wrap up, a Birchbox spot light and maybe next week a facelift for the blog! 

Have a great evening peeps!

High 5 Friday!

Hello Lovelies!

Friday is here, (imagine me singing that to you!)
Why is it that one day of work can feel so very different than another? Is it the light at the end of the tunnel, is it the promise of sleeping in tomorrow? I may never know, but I will continue to enjoy the floaty feeling that carries me through Fridays.

Well this week there is a lot I have been lovin'. Here are my top 5

1. Lady Grey Tea. I love hot tea in general but man I have found my tea soul mate. The taste is light and fruity, the scent reminds me of fruit loops, in a good way. Also I adore that they use the *ahem* correct spelling of the word GREY.

2. The Avengers. We are hoping to go see it again tonight. Love. That. Movie. I'm not going to claim the number one slot but I have got to be one of the most superhero loving-est girls around. What movie could be better than one with a whole bunch of superheros in it. (by the way, I am Iron Man, all the way) ;)(P.P.S. I loved the way Mark Ruffalo fit as Bruce Banner!)

3. Grey's Anatomy (man this list is starting to sound real shallow this week) The season finale is this week..... OH MY WORD! Intense. Actually I don't know that all of it's that intense. I have only finished the first half so far. By my knowledge of soap operas it will be. YIKES but I love it... and I keep coming back. 

4. My Espresso maker! Coolest new toy ever. My husband is the BEST!
 I love making the espresso, I love drinking the latte's. All around I just love it. I can never go back to plain ole' coffee.

5.Being a Photog. I may be kind of on hiatus at the moment but boy do I love it. I love shooting, I love capturing the moments, I love the post processing. All of it. It makes my heart smile. One day (hopefully soon) I would love to have my own business. To make people smile and to freeze that moment forever as a keepsake. Right now I'm all about the practice, and just shoot shoot shoot. I am trying to pin down people to "pwactice" with! 

That's my top 5 this week. Now on to the weekend!!! I have some purse making planned and a birthday party for a certain 3 year old! How about you guys? Any big amazing stupendous plans this weekend? 

PS My friends, after just 2 months I am at almost 1000 page views! HOLY STINKING COW GUYS THAT'S AMAZING! Thank you!

5things

     It's here again, Friday eve. Does anybody make exciting plans for Friday eve? Ha ha Not in our house. Staying in eating a warm cozy supper and watching House M.D. together. Doesn't get much closer to perfect.
Sausage Bake
     Not that I am not always thankful but I am glad when Thursdays roll around. I always seem to end up with a list 10 time longer than I need for my 5things list! This week I am getting back to the basics with my list, not as a cop out but because I really am looking hard at the simple things I love so much.

     1. The most adorable, little, affordable apartment. We are so blessed.
     2. 2 cars that run great and are totally paid off. 
     3. One fuzzy little puppy dog that loves me no matter what.
Fresh From the Groomers.
     4(1/2). A camera and a computer that continue to work even if not always in top notch form. Better that going without. (I would go stir crazy!)
     5. Flowers. From My amazing husband for our ONE YEAR anniversary. 

Happy 1 Year!
What are some of the things you have been blessed with?

Life, Grace and Second Chances

     This is  blog post I have started over and over several time in my mind. I have known for a few weeks now that this day would come. Honestly if I think to long and hard about this day I become speechless. There are so many emotions and thoughts forever tied to this date, any given day I can feel differently than the day before.
     You see two very different experiences happened on this day exactly one year apart. The first happened on the side on a mountain on a dirt road in Haiti. The other on a long and winding road stretching between Hannibal and Mackinaw City.
     Two years ago I came face to face with tragedy and I don't even remember it! I had just finished my Jr. year of college and with a mission team from my school I was wrapping up a week of ministering to the devastated country of Haiti. This was a trip each of us was meant to be on and there was many tears a prayers poured into it. We were originally meant to travel over spring break but due to the earthquake that struck the tiny island our trip was postponed indefinitely. Each of the members of the team will tell you that regardless of the set back we were all determined to be there.
     The week was spent reaching out to these people. In schools, in churches, from the back of a giant truck affectionately referred to as "the beast". I had the thought more than once on this trip, so this is what it feels like to really be His hands and feet. The last day of our trip will be one that I will remember for the rest of my life. (or not really remember as the case may be ;) We had been up in the mountains worshiping that morning with some of the Haitian people we were ministering to. We wrapped up our morning and climbed back in the truck to head home, at some point on our way down the mountain the driver realized our breaks were out. I can't begin to imagine what went through his mind at that moment. What ever thoughts went through his mind at the time he began driving the truck into the side of the mountain to attempt to slow us down, and as he did so we rounded a steep curve and everyone was thrown from the truck that just moments before was going 60 some mph. This is where the beauty lies in the story. Of the 30 plus people tossed like rag dolls from that truck not a single life was lost! Now I can't tell you much about my personal experience after this because I don't remember. There were about 4 hours of this day that I just don't recall. For that I am thankful. 
     Obviously there is much more to this story that I can tell but that is not the point today. This side of eternity I will never have an answer to the why of that day, and I will always have a mind full of questions about it. But what I do know is I have a beautiful story of grace that began in my life that day. Given all of the circumstances I should not be here, none of us should be here. Just like the day when I was 6 and began a personal relationship with Christ, I was spared. Spared from death. Given a second chance, to live, and grow, and to reach people for his glory. I will forever be thankful to my savior for that day, a day of life. 
      If you have tuned in this long this brings us to the other milestone on this day. Last year I was packing up and heading out bright and early, at dark:30 on my honeymoon! Beginning my new life that I was saved to live with my husband! That day is made so much more beautiful because of what happened the year before. I was more conscious to give the glory of each day to the one who gives them to us. My life has been spared for a reason just like I was saved so many years ago for a purpose. That purpose; to give all the glory to my God. 
     So while this day holds many memories and emotions, I choose this day to be a day of joy. To smile bigger, breathe deeper, and hug tighter. The sun is shining, and I am alive and that is enough for me.

One Year Ago Today

     Just thinking about that phrase makes me grin like a goof-ball. 
Seriously it is currently 4:15 right now and I can tell you one year ago today I just beginning to bask in the glow of becoming the new Mrs Geisendorfer. At 4:15 we would have been just pulling up to the most gorgeous hotel where our reception had already begun. Though it had begun to drizzle on my perfect sunny day but I was still all sunshine and sparkles. My new husband stepped out of his truck, came around to my door and swept me out of the seat and off my feet (we couldn't have me soiling my pretty blue shoes and wedding gown in the rain).

    As he carried me in the door I could see faces peeking around the door of the ball room, anxious to be the first to spot the groom and his new bride.


     I don't think I stopped grinning all day. It all felt just like a fairy tale. Just exactly how it should have been. Even right now after a whole year I still feel like I'm in a fairy tale. Don't get me wrong this first year had been one of the single most challenging in our entire relationship.

     We have butted head and "talked" till we were blue in the face but to be totally honest I'm thinking that marriage is one of those miracles of the Lord. You know that it was lots of hard work but I can't seem to see all those hard tough moments in light of the amazing life my husband and I have begun through God. I can't take a single bit of the credit, I know full well that without my God I would not how made it to this day, but He has over and over again showered us both and our marriage with his grace. 

Yes that same touch of grace I keep going on about. That grace that is giving us and blessing us WAY more than he,I or both of us deserve. 
     Back to that amazing day one year ago. It was simply perfect. We were surrounded by those that loved us best. All of the "formalities" finally ironed out and being carried out by people that cared enough to help us float through the day. The clearest moment of is later in the day as the best man gave the toast I looked to my right and for the first time that day it felt real, there by my side was my HUSBAND.

     I know this is a whole year later and trust me I did send out all of the traditional thank you notes but to everyone that was there, behind the scenes and making sure our day was beautifully seamless, Thank YOU! From the bottom of our hearts we love you all very much and never could have had that day without you.


You, mister Geisendorfer, You have bewitched me body and soul and I love you. I love spending life with you and I can't wait to continue doing so for the rest of our lives.
