In our original wedding plans, we were going to have some reception/more wedding photos taken here, then eat at the restaurant across the street overlooking the bridge.

I dislike the new wordpress post editor…

I know I’m complaining, but I feel like I’m not the only one who has so much struggle. In fact, I read another blog post with the person saying s/he was having the same problems. I’d link the post here, but I can’t remember where I read it now. WordPress forced me to change to […]

Mornings.

Mornings have an aura of sacredness. They have a gentle quietness, a cocoon of peacefulness that can’t be found at any other part of the day. It’s the time of day where I can focus the most. The last few mornings I’ve been especially enjoying my time. I’ve been reading my religious book of choice […]
