"Concept" being using photos to do a quick synopsis of the previous year.
Fine and dandy, if you have photos every month. I have come to the realization that Lewis and I don't take a lot of pictures. That has got to change in 2009!
So here goes, with what applicable photos I have:
We brought in 2008 at the Cruz House. Lewis and I also attended one of those ginormous Bridal Shows with my mom, April, and my MIL. We found our cake vendor and DJ there. We also secured our Celebration location this month.
Engagement photos were taken by Davy Knapp. This was soooo much fun! My bridal shower was also this month and the invitations were finalized. We figured out what flowers were were using and I was in the midst of taking a calligraphy class.
I celebrated my 32nd birthday. Pictured are the dozen roses Lewis got me. This was a crazy month with lots of last minute wedding stuff getting done. Dress fittings, veil finding, addressing and sending invitations, hair and make-up trials, and confirmation meetings with wedding vendors. We even managed to fit in a trip to Anson to visit my parents this month.
Lewis and I were married!! We got massages a couple of days before the wedding and had a lovely rehearsal dinner/meet&greet for our immediate families at the High Ranch on the 11th, which was also my sister's birthday. We were married on the 12th and had a lovely intimate reception that evening. The whole experience was just what we wanted. Later in the month, we held a Celebration for friends and extended family involving dinner, drinks, and dancing.
July is always the month of my annual family reunion. We went to Anson over the 4th of July weekend. Two weeks later, on the 19th, my brother got married. At end of the month, Lewis went to Las Vegas for a work convention and I flew out to meet him. We stayed at Mandalay Bay and it was awesome! July was a BUSY month!
We found out we were expecting a baby! I took a pregnancy test on August 4th in Boise, ID. It was positive!
Lewis and I went to Anson/Abilene to see my sister graduate from Physical Therapy School. Pheasant season also opened on December 6. During the middle of the month, both of Lewis' parents were in the hospital for unrelated reasons. April came into town for Christmas and helped me clean the house and start setting up the nursery. The "actual" Brown Christmas was postoned until January.
