Summer 2012

So I haven't been blogging in quite a while.  I've been pretty busy! Getting married, starting up a new business, honeymoon, and just living life to the fullest!!  

Here we are, all dressed up in our finery!!  This was AFTER the sun finally came out, after the rain storms, and with bright blue sky about to shine down on us!

I'm not about to post all of our wedding pictures on here... but I will tell  you this, we couldn't have had a better time.  The ceremony, for me, was kind of a blur.  As I was walking down the aisle, on the arm of my other 'dad', R, I saw my very soon to be husband.  This was it.  One of the longest walks down the aisle to the man that I have come to depend on.  He is my best friend, my confidante, my goofy co-conspirator, my sounding board, my idea listener.  And on this day, he became my husband.

From the picture, you can see the handcrafted benches that B made.  We had farmer's market flowers on short shepards' hooks in Mason Jars that had a wire ties that B made.  We almost were not able to get married out here, but the weather cleared and our guests were great sports, sitting on the burlap covered benches, each with their own garbage bag!

We really could not have asked for a better wedding, enjoyed with those closest to us!!

Thank you to everyone who helped out and made it a GREAT DAY!!!

Of course, there are so many other wedding details I could go into today, but I won't. 
Next time I'll talk about the wedding menu and give y'all all the recipes for my Pulled Pork and Potato Salads!

A few weeks after we got married we knew we needed to just get out and explore. FIRST, of course we attempted to do some Firewood....As to which I fell, hurt my knee, scraped up my wrists, and was told that I may not be as good as others when it comes to making firewood...  But I still try each time!
B making  rounds with "The Beast".

Looking up toward Iron Mountain, where B proposed.

And of course, I continued to injure myself while picking raspberries later that same day.... Yes, my foot bled for these!  I accidentally stepped backwards, my heel slipping out of my flip flop and gashing down on a raspberry stem - one I had cut down to an inch, but forgot to trim all the way to the ground a few weeks before.
Now I just won't be picking raspberries in my flip flops.
So, my lovely Mr. Wonderful patched me up, looked at me and said "I think tomorrow we'll just go for a drive."

So off we went to see if we could cross the mountains behind our house.  We removed a Stump (well B and Black Beauty did - I just take the pictures!)

While B was pulling the stump out of the way, I got to take pictures of Mt. Higgins, outside of Darrington.

and once the stump was out of the way, we stopped by a creek and around the corner we came upon some snow.  This was the end of the line for that day!

The snow was up to 2 feet deep in spots!
It was melting though and we expect to be back and crossing the pass before the next snow season!

Thus we turned around (but not before our picture!) and headed to our Viewpoint.

How about a Side of Mt. Baker with a Flag view??

Looking towards Puget Sound.

But our adventures don't end there... We've been gardening, including watching our lovely tomatoes grow in the greenhouse.....

In the front and side gardens....

Missy is the Garden Guardian!

And of course, we're taking time out of our busy days to simply Smell the Roses in the Rose Garden, and just be a bit goofy, like Missy here.

So until I get another free moment, don't forget to stop and smell your own roses and appreciate all that is around you!!
