No. 1 — We had our engagement photos taken on Sunday! A good friend of ours, Jason Plotkin, took the photos. I work with Jason at the newspaper and he is a PHENOMENAL photographer. He is amazingly giving, too. He also is a geek like us, and took some awesome geeky shots. I can’t wait to show my family and friends the work he did. And I can’t wait to show off our save the dates!
No. 2 — Speaking of the newspaper, we had some changes this week. Some are not so good, and the others … well, those have yet to be seen. A lot is going to happen at our office in the last six months of this year, and it is going to be a bit of a bumpy road. But if my training has taught me at least something, there is always a downhill to rest your legs after the climb. Things will be figured out, one way or another.
No. 3 — “Country roads, take me home, to a place I belong …” We are heading to Michigan tomorrow! Unfortunately it is under sad circumstances: Jamieson’s great aunt and god mother died. She had been struggling with cancer for a while. There is a memorial and a wake on Saturday. This trip will be tough on us for other reasons, too, because we are leaving Friday night and returning Sunday afternoon — it is a nine-hour drive. But it will be good to see the family and friends again.
