giving thanks

So it's taken me a bit of time to play catch up with everything going on and make it back here to this blog, as evidenced by the fact that today is my one month wedding anniversary. And now that the wedding is over and people can't ask about it, the two things they DO ask are: "So how's married life?" and "When are you having babies?"


Our wedding photographer left the day after our wedding for the East Coast and promptly got waylaid by Hurricane Sandy, so we're still waiting on photos (I'm not complaining - some people lost their HOMES. I can deal with wedding photo delay for as long as need be.) But we do have one thing to share - a video made my adorable and ridiculously talented husband, who's an editor, so he can do this kind of stuff in his sleep. It's a montage of all our photobooth photos, shot by Open Air Photobooth (we recommend them 100% for any type of party - they were terrific) and edited to the song we opened our reception with, right after our first dance - Pink's Raise Your Glass.

So enjoy the video, and please know that I'm grateful for all the love and support you guys have shown me this year - in my ups and downs and wayward trips sideways as I contemplated life, love, wedding planning, hiding under the blankets, and everything in between. I couldn't be more grateful for this little blogging community I have and I'm so grateful for every one of you. If I don't comment more on your blogs, it's not because I'm not reading them or that I don't love catching up on your life, because I do, and if I don't blog more, it's not because I have nothing to say - sometimes it's the exact opposite.

And while I'm on a gratitude kick, right now I'm grateful for my friends, my family, my husband, my health, my happiness, my job, a roof over my head, shoes on my feet, food in my fridge, electricity in my apartment, a car that works, a phone that works, and about three million other things. I am truly so, so blessed.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Loved your video montage. If the pictures were any indicator, everyone had so much fun... it truly was a celebration, which is entirely the point:)

Well, I hope you're still enjoying life as a married lady. Peggy and I celebrated (if that's the right word) our 41st anniversary in December. The Episcopal priest who married us said he had never performed a wedding in Advent but what the couple got a divorce, but we insisted on getting married posthaste (we had only met that August), so he married us, and we're still together. Even though it's been shit for the entire 41 years, we're waiting for him to die to get a divorce because we don't want to have to listen to him say, "I told you so." It's getting a tedious though because my looks have gone to hell, and I don't have much money, so I just don't know if I'll be able to find another wife, and now that you've gotten married, that's one less possibility for me.
