Nothing Short of Thankful

We spent this Thanksgiving in Nashville and had a fun time full of food (not only the Thanksgiving day feast but Pancake Pantry and SATCO and lots of other Nashville favorites), family (all 3 of my siblings were home for Thanksgiving for the first time in 5 years!), and football (including witnessing the Deacs beat the Dores and watching the on-field fight between Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan).

To explain the pictures, our whole family ran the Boulevard Bolt, a 5 mile race that takes place at 8am on Thanksgiving day. We all dressed up, and as you can clearly see, Jonny was the Mayflower since he came over from England. He ran a full five miles with a pinata boat strapped to the top of his head! We did a bunch of other things that we didn't take pictures of, but we did document Ben Folds with the Nashville Symphony, which was a really awesome show. The last photo is Jonny, me, Loin, and Lod after the show. 

I just kept thinking all weekend about how much we have to be thankful for. Hope your Thanksgivings were happy!

October 23

We've had a lot of fun reliving our wedding day through pictures that our friends have posted like this one:

But I'm excited to announce that our professional wedding pictures are finally here! Right here! 

I'm sure I'll be sharing more on this blog once I get the disk from our awesome photographer, Rachel Williamson, but until then, enjoy.

Happy happy weekend!

It's the weekend!! (Meant to put this up yesterday, but things were too busy before the weekend actually started). 

What are you up to this weekend? I'm planning on celebrating Jonathon Stalls' last day of his walk across the country for Kiva, going to our awesome friend Lauren's housewarming party tonight, and taking a tour with Lydia and Caroline, my design friends slash home decor gurus, through the Elle Decor Designer Showcase home on Sunday.

I'm also hoping for lots of hang time with my boy before he boards a plane back to Toronto on Sunday night.

Have a happy weekend!

We chose to have polaroids for our guestbook at our wedding so that all of our guests would have a picture of themselves next to the note that they wrote. I wish I had a good picture of the guestbook, but I haven't actually seen it yet since it's been completed. 

We took one of the cameras with us to New Caledonia, and it was fun to try out taking pictures on the island to see how they turned out as polaroids. Here are a few favorites:

We played a lot of scrabble by the beach and the pool. I'm pretty sure I have the winning record.
We also took a little dive in la piscine naturelle, saw some incredible fish, and took a really flattering picture with our masks.

And finally, I'll leave you with some individual shots - me awkwardly posing by myself in front of island greenery and Jonny blending in to the white of the overexposed ocean.

Scenes from New Caledonia

On a whim, we chose to spend our honeymoon in New Caledonia. We knew we wanted to spend our weeks on a remote island in the Pacific and we wanted to go somewhere that neither of us had ever been or might ever go. New Caledonia is a French island near Fiji, and it was absolutely fantastic. Perfect weather, great food, and lots of time together. We would highly recommend it if you don't mind traveling for 24 hours to get there! Below are a few pictures from our time there.

 On the beach in front of our bungalow about to head for dinner:

 Our little beach bungalow:

I loved how, because we were technically in France, everything was in French, even the knobs on the sink:
Our view of the lagoon from our back porch:

I don't normally like pictures of my feet, but this just shows the beautiful ocean right outside our bungalow, so I'll let this one go up:

 Another look at the lagoon from our porch:


 Our view from breakfast every morning:
And one of my very favorite things about where we chose to go on our honeymoon: all of the Japanese couples there were wearing matching honeymoon outfits. I tried to get a picture and this is the best that I did:

All in all, it was such an incredible few weeks together in a beautiful place, and I'm so glad we got to take the trip. I'll definitely be sharing lots more pictures from our wedding and honeymoon and other joyous affairs in the days to come, so get excited!

Home from the Honey

We just got home from our honeymoon in New Caledonia and New Zealand this weekend, and we've been busy busy unpacking, settling into our house, and eating at Chili's for our first dinner back in the US! We had such a fun wedding and honeymoon, and I can't wait to share pictures as soon as I get them all uploaded and sorted. For now, here is a little sunshine and blue skies from New Caledonia to combat the black skies of San Francisco.
