it's been over a year

I feel like I should start with my usual... "I'm really bad at updating this blog." Since my last post I...
  • quit my job
  • got a new (better!) job
  • bought a house
  • moved
  • got married
We moved to NH last September - for me, I'm in the next town over from where I grew up so its a very familiar area. For Ryan, he's always lived in the same town in MA (we lived there after we graduated from school) so NH was somewhat new to him aside from the visits to my parents house.

We're still slowly unpacking - I think the only thing we (I) really have left to unpack is my sewing stuff. We're painting every room in the house so we didn't want to unpack everything and then have to move it out of the way to paint. The office/sewing room has been completely painted, so I really just need to set aside time to get in there and organize everything. I've been wanting to sew something (anything) so as the urge gets stronger, I'll get everything unpacked.

The new house!

While we were in the house-buying and moving process, we were also planning/getting ready for our wedding. We got married at Sugarbush Ski Resort in Warren, VT. So now Ryan's really stuck with me. :P

We did what we could for the wedding - we made centerpieces, my mom whipped up the table runners for me, I bought all the candles that went on the tables, did the table numbers, the guest Mad Libs sheets, the card box, the favors, the decor we placed around the room, my mom made the cake... We had an amazing photographer, Caroline ( and an amazing florist, Randi ( to help us with those details that we couldn't do on our own. We kept the guest list small and limited it to mostly family and close friends. We had a great time and it seemed like everyone else did too. :)
