Happy One Month!

I was in a staff meeting today and "poof" I remembered that it is my one-month anniversary!  30 days of marital bliss.  Hooray for love-sweet-love!

Someone at work this week asked how I was enjoying married life so far.  "It is wonderful, of course" I replied. Smirking, this person said, "I'm sure he gets up and makes you breakfast in bed."

I frowned, "No.  But he makes us cappuccinos every morning."

"Seriously?"  Two other women popped out of their offices with eyebrows raised.  "Clark makes you a cappuccino every morning?"

I knew they were impressed.  Clark is a good one.

On another note, now that we are not wedding planning, we hardly know what to do with all our time. We've been listening to the Harry Potter books on CD.  I usually busy myself with something in the evening and Clark cooks. Periodically I look up to ask him if he feels like Clark-er-ella.  So far he does not.  But we have seriously got to find some hobbies.  Hobbies and friends.  That is next on the agenda.  Hobbies, friends, and serving somewhere besides church.  As a family of Presbyterian Ministers (100% clergy rate), we are becoming dangerously close to the church equivalent of cat-ladies.  Sometimes people can have too many cats.  Sometimes people can do too much church.


Wishing you a lovely Advent, delicious time with family and friends, and space to breathe this holiday season. xoxo


  1. Yes - good for you - get some hobbies and friends. =) We didn't realize that we hadn't filled the "post wedding planning" void very well until we looked at each other 8 months later and had both gained 20+ pounds! Hobbies are better for your health.

  2. Gratulations !! and best wishes!!

    Greetings from Germany,


  3. I say enjoy the slowness and ease of life after the rush and prep of a big wedding.But, hello, you guys are the adventurous types...it won't be long before you have something cooked up! Enjoy! Gorgeous...I mean GORGEOUS photo.

  4. I have an idea: You could come to Denver for a good visit! You can serve by making cappuccinos here--for us! You can ski: That's a hobby. Or we could hike, also a hobby. And if you get enough of the outdoors, you could play with my kids, which will absolutely help take up your time. I will nap. Happy one-month anniversary (plus a few days)!

  5. my lovely happy girl! it's a little bit funny to hear you are sticking in love and church! sounds like sticking in luck, ha ha. is'nt it interesting that we sometimes need to come out of it? I'm fascinated about our urge for diversification and flowing. why we can't simply stuck in the big fat luck? I guess we need always a little bit chaos to can feel and appreciate the big fat luck we have. Greetings and christmas wishes to you and Clark!
