One Year Down, Eternity to Go

If you ever want to have a do-it-yourself wedding, I’m your gal.  The Great Wedding Cupcake Experiment of 2009 was only a small part of the planning, which I did mostly long-distance from St. John’s for our wedding in Ottawa.

And it all worked out GREAT.

A year ago today I married my best friend and have spent every day since then thanking my lucky stars. 

I haven’t had so much fun on any one day in my life.  We arrived in a schoolbus decorated with carnations.  I got to play with a puppy while I waited for our two oldest grandmothers to show up (combined age: 196 years).  Everyone had some ice cream while we did the post-ceremony photos.  Best party I’ve ever been to, even if I may have burst into tears at one point in front of everyone I know and love.  We may have also accidentally flooded our honeymoon suite, but it worked out in the end.

A good time was had by all and hey, we’re still married.

A corgi. A small boy. A sense of adventure. Chaos ensues.

    1. Thanks! The ice cream place was actually under the pavilion in which we had the ceremony. It seemed fitting as my grandparents went there for ice cream when they were kids, as did my mother …
