Words are inadequate to describe this year. 
Photos will have to suffice.
Here's to a new year!

A Few of My Favorite Things

 Tiny street in downtown Philadelphia lined with light-wrapped trees.
 Receiving a beautiful bouquet of flowers after beau had a long day at work. (You would think I had the long day. )
Adorning ourselves the tree with lights and ornaments in preparation for our first Christmas together as a married couple. (I was hoping that our tree would be too tall and cause a Dr. Seuss like effect, but it didn't quite do that wonky lean.)

Project 365


To date, I have posted less than 60 blog posts for the year. That is an all time low for this little bloggy of mine since I began blogging two years ago. With that said, I plan to do better in 2013...

I have decided to take part in Project 365 (also known as the 365 Photo Challenge) starting January 1, 2013. This idea was inspired by Elsie's personal blog. I think it would be great to document one full year of life through photographs. There are little moments in life that are easily forgotten after several days, so what better way than to have a personal diary of what has happened every single day of one year of your life? This will be especially rewarding for me as it will be my first full year as a married woman. I can't even imagine what beau and I will face, and what exactly will occur during these 365 days, but I am really looking forward to it.

I don't have a set theme for this project. My photos will just consist of life.

I've noticed something recently. The eyes of little people staring...  Staring at me. Staring at beau. Staring at us as a couple. As creepy as it sounds (and feels), I have come to understand why they stare. 

From my understanding, they have rarely seen a young couple married and in love before. My home church has some married folks in it, but Beau and I are by the far the youngest. We don’t take this lightly. We see it as an opportunity to set an example for the younger ones.

Maybe I will touch more on this in future blog posts.

Prelude to Marriage

This photo is one of very few I currently have from my wedding day. This photo, captured by my MOH and one of my best friends since high school, was taken as the limo whisked me away from the hotel towards the church where I would commit my life to my beau. 

Though it's a simple cell phone photo, it says a lot. As I sat in the limo and I smiled for this photo, I was such a nervous/anxious wreck. So many thoughts ran through my mind:  

This is dress is so puffy... I feel like a Gypsy bride (haha. no. seriously)... This unexpected limo upgrade wasn't half bad... Oh my goodness, we're almost at the church!... We are now pulling into the church parking lot... I can't wait to see my beau, and have him see me... Will he cry as I walk down the aisle?... This is really it, Jhan!... In a few minutes, you will be starting a new life with the love of your life... Here we go!!...

This photo says so much.
