Hello there! I hope you all have been well. I’ve missed blogging but I’ve really been enjoying my new life as a newly wed. The hubby and I took a road-trip to St. Louis last week/weekend to attend his cousins wedding. The car ride was about 13 hours but with our conversations/laughter, the music and snacks, we made the trip a lot of fun!
When we got back, our wedding photographer emailed and let us know the wedding pics were ready. Needless to say, we were thrilled! So we went through them, picked our faves and decided to share the following pics with my blog family. Some pics we are going to save for just us and our family.
Before the pics, I just want to let you all know that this day (May 11, 2013) was the best day of my life. Darrius and I made the decision to have a small, private wedding at my parents house. We invited our immediate family members, our god-parents (and Pastor who is just like my godfather) and best friends. It was perfect and just the way we wanted it. We had other plans for the “perfect wedding” in the pass. But when it came right down to it, we did what made us happy. Our families mean everything to us and to have them there, sharing this special day was a blessing. My mother and I decorated the house, my little sister and Dad worked hard putting chairs together and making sure everything was neat and clean, and my grandmother made sure everything ran smoothly the day of. Darrius and I couldn’t be more grateful. God has truly blessed us.
Thank you to everyone who has wished us well and prayed for us. We really appreciate it! I hope you enjoy the pics we chose to share and please continue to pray for us as we embark on this new journey. Be blessed!
