Whoa. I blinked and July flew by. What happened in July?
1) We got married.
The lovely wedding photos were taken by Douglas Bovitt. Douglas did a masterful job at making two pasty gaming misanthropes look human. “Look like you’re happy” he kept saying…it worked!
It was a lovely little affair on July 5th (one month ago!) at 8:30 am at the Cherry Hill courthouse (because my current town only does weddings on Wednesdays and Wednesday was July 4 and I was a doof and planned the honeymoon before I set a wedding date. The judge performed a lovely ceremony, and inserted much more than the “do you? do you? okay” that I expected. He added in a phrase about letting go of the past, embracing the present and moving into the future that brought tears to my eyes.
Interesting highlights included someone asking us if we were there to pay a fine as we waited, fully dressed, inside the municipal building hallway, and the half-hearted round of applause from the people waiting in the gallery as we exited the judge’s chambers.
Ok…one more photo…
So again, if you are looking for South Jersey wedding photography (see what I did there, SEO peeps?) Douglas Bovitt is your guy.
2) We went to Walt Disney world. (yes, again. shush)
We stayed in a newly-renovated room at Port Orleans: Riverside and ate at Le Cellier, San Angel In, Sci-Fi Cafe, and Tony’s Town Square. All meals were phenomenal. And as an added bonus the entire continent of South America sent its teens to Walt Disney world in gigantic,.clapping tour groups to cheer on our honeymoon. Gracias.
3) I celebrated my 6-month anniversary at TNP.
No pictures for this, but I am still very happy there. Do you know I haven’t even had a cold since I left the C-P in January? WM has a cold now though, so I’ll probably be getting one in 3 days.
4. I’m changing my name. (again, again)
It’s frighteningly easy to get a name changed on your Social Security card. My new one came in the mail in just 5 days. I had to wait 90 minutes at the DMV to get my driver’s license changed.
Thank you very much for your kind comments on my last jittery post. We appreciate them all. Sometimes I click “Publish” on this doofy blog and sort of forget that there are people who take time out of their busy day to check in on my ramblings. I appreciate all of you, commenters & lurkers alike.
5. I will be continuing to blog.
So how many of you thought I’d end this endeavor with the remarriage?
I was going to wrap it up then, because it’s been almost 10 years of rambling. But in my 4 weeks away, I missed this place.
Next on my list of 2012 changes — my 40th birthday next month. Bring it.
