Once and Future Honeymoons

Things are plenty crazy and although I never want to say "the honeymoon's over," we're definitely facing life head-on, without some of our favorite honeymoon type blessings-the extra time together, the temporary lack of laundry or dishes, the almost constant dates. *sigh*
I'm scheduling my next honeymoon right away. I'm not counting on it coming around for another decade or more, but I'll get another one someday. Mark my words. :)

So, besides being fabulous, what does that picture up there have to do with this? Well, I'm here to tell you. :D Jennie Karges of Ampersand Photography did our engagement and wedding pictures and I LOVE that she captured this moment. I looked at that and was so excited that she caught this part of our relationship. This is exactly what it looks like and how we stand when we're talking things over and deciding on something together.
It's okay if the honeymoon's over, because I love the "figuring it out together" part of marriage that we're getting right in the thick of. Mind you, us figuring it out these days doesn't look quite as cute as it did on our wedding day, but oh well.

And in case you weren't paying attention, here's another plug for Jennie: Ampersand Photography


Catch Up

Chase is at ASU and MCC working on prerequisites for Dental school and working at the Scout Shop. He's serving as Cubmaster in our Ward and doing an amazing job! Seriously...ask anyone! He's the best.
I'm our ward's music chair, chorister and choir director. We're trying to get a choir going again...which is a LARGE point of STRESS for me right now. We'll start up practice in October and until then I will probably be praying frantically. :P
Scholastically speaking, BIG CHANGES for Melissa: I've taken a leave of absence from ASU to do a 30-wk. Massage Therapy program starting next month. Like I said-BIG CHANGES. I'm definitely a little nervous going into something completely new and different, but I'm really happy about it and Chase and I are way excited. :)
Because my school schedule is going to be 9-5:30 M-TH and pretty hard to schedule, I'm not working right now, which is tough, but we'll survive.
Anyhoo...I hope everyone's doing great. :)

P.S. Blogging friends,
I want to see you blogging more. I miss you when you're not blogging. That is all.
