Over Whelmed

It is crazy to think we have been married a week - I think that we surpassed several celebrity couples in remaining married a week. Sad fact.

However it has been a whirl wind to say the least. We got married and then headed off to the Apostle Islands in northern Wisconsin. We had a marvelous time. It is crazy to think we are actually married, it is such a strange transition.

I have caught Marc a few times playing with his ring, as he has had to get used to wearing one. It is even a little funny to see him wearing one, he normal is pretty low on jewelry and what not, normally he only wears a watch. It is even a little funny when he goes to grab my hand and I feel it on his hand. Funny what we aren't accustom to.

I am over the top overwhelmed by everything at the moment. I am overwhelmed by the love and support from family and friends as they gathered to watch us profess our vows and become husband and wife. I am overwhelmed by the amount of family and friends who drove in or even flew in from hundreds of miles away. I am overwhelmed by the generosity of family and friends as they came bearing gifts,  I look forward to beginning the process of writing thank you notes. (I seriously love sending snail mail)

I am even a bit overwhelmed by the fact that I now have another person living in my house, not bad, but putting me into a state of transition. It is a welcomed transition just a transition none the less. No one warns you about this time.

Life is going well and slowly but surely the strange will become the familiar.


  1. I remember feeling weird with my new last name. I felt like I hadn't owned it yet with duties and acknowledged. But now my maiden name seems very strange to put on the end of my first. When one is in ministry and the other isn't daily schedules and routines certainly take some getting use to and what our culture deems as normal.

  2. I STILL play with my wedding ring. Just an FYI.
