One Month.

Today is the one month anniversary of the happiest day of my life…The day I married my soul mate.
In the grand scheme of things, one month is nothing. We have already been together for more than five years and still have the rest of our lives to look forward to. But to me, this one month is so much more significant than any other month we have been together, or will be together. The first month of being married was just an extension of our wedding day – filled with love and happiness and support from our family and friends. 
Here is what’s happened in the past month:
-Got married in Ohio.
-Went to Maui for our honeymoon.
-Changed my last name to Greer in time to be an official member of the family at the Greer Family Reunion just two weeks after the wedding.
-Had my two year anniversary with my company. (I can’t believe I’ve been in the real world for more than two whole years now!)
-Attended planning meetings for a young adult ministry at our church. After praying and praying for God to show me opportunities to get more involved, I am seeing Him answer my prayers in more ways than I could have imagined.
-Took a weekend trip to Panama City Beach to visit with Greg’s family and our friends.
-Found out some of our best friends are moving back to Charleston this summer and we can. not. wait.
-Started to house hunt. (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
I can’t even describe how grateful I am for all of the amazing things happening in our lives. While there are sure to be very difficult times ahead, I am embracing these blessings now and know God will never give us anything we cannot handle. 
More than anything, I am content. It is truly the best feeling to know and understand I am where God wants me to be. I am excited to see what else He has in store! 
To my husband who I love so much, HAPPY ONE MONTH ANNIVERSARY! 

Reception Catering Tasting

First things first. Today is a special day because it is my oldest brother’s birthday!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RYAN!!! (Bringing back the old school pics for this one) Wish I could be with you in D.C. like I was this time last year. Maybe you should just come here? 🙂

In other news, I wanted to share another highlight of my weekend in Columbus with Greg. The cake was hard to beat, but meeting with the caterer was pretty great too.

I don’t think I have ever seen so much food for such a small number of people in my life. There were four of us: Greg, my dad, my step-mom, and myself. And allllllllll of this food.

I had let them know of a few specific things I wanted to try ahead of time, but they brought out so much more to try than I could have imagined. 
We were quite the happy campers tasting a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Chicken marsala, vegetarian lasagna, meat lasagna, mac and cheese, BBQ pulled pork, pasta marinara, mashed potatoes, roasted Italian potatoes, rolls, and mixed vegetables were all served. I also requested a few Southern style dishes like fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits. 

I did my very best to practice self-control and only take a few bites of the things I really wanted to try (let’s be honest, I really wanted to try every single thing). I took more than just a few bites of the mac and cheese and vegetarian lasagna. 

Oh, how I love pasta. 
We left feeling stuffed and had about five containers of to-go boxes from the leftovers they so kindly boxed up for us. The food was awesome and I am even more excited now to put the final menu together. It is going to be so difficult to choose what to cut out. If only we could have it all!!
Hope you all have a great Friday!!
