From Mrs. Grimmett…. :)
Wow…. It has been quite a long time hasn't it? Oh so much has happened since the last time I posted. I'm so sorry about the neglect, but come on…. Ya'll can understand I've been a little busy right? Ok… well, as long as I'm here I might as well re-cap what has been happening lately.
I guess I'll just start where I left off. Brian and I hopped on a plane down to Texas on July 28th. We tried to catch a morning flight, but since we were on standby we didn't get anything until about 5. We were ok though because all that mattered was that we got out there. I spent most of Thursday with the girls in his family. It was nice to spend time getting to know them since it will probably be a while until we're able to see them again. Brian showed me around the Dallas/Fort Worth area on Friday and that night, since his ENTIRE FAMILY was able to be there we took a couple quick family photos. The kids were so funny. With that many it was REALLY hard to get them all to sit still. This was the best shot I could get… good thing I wasn't the photographer.
I wish the trip would have ended better than it did. Brian and I were unable to catch a flight home on Sunday and everything was booked for a while and so we ended up driving up to Utah which was TOTALLY unexpected and kinda a pain, but it made for quite the adventure.
Wedding plans wrapped up quite nicely the week up to THE DAY. Our plan was to have everything done by the time all of my siblings got up to Utah so that we could just enjoy the time with them. So when the Saturday before the wedding rolled around, we were basically done. My oldest brother Joe joined us on Saturday and we spent the day with his family at a really fun park in Salt Lake. Its that park that has the Ferris Wheel from the movie "Charlie." It was a lot of fun and was good time for Brian to bond with my family that he had never met before.
I'm probably just baised, but I seemed to have the most perfect wedding. The ceremony wasn't until 1 and so I had plenty of time in the morning to get ready and take my time. The sealing was just beautiful. A family friend performed it and he did such a great job. I bawled…. So did my mom…. So did Brian's mom…. So did Brian. It was wonderful.
(I wish I had wedding pictures back already, but you'll just have to imagine the most perfect day ever and that's what it was like.)
I won't go into much detail about the rest of the day but just know it was amazing. We ate great food, danced to fun music, and talked with so many wonderful family members. Thanks again to everyone for your support!!
Brian and I spent the next couple of days just relaxing and enjoying being with each other. We ate at some super delicious restaurants in Salt Lake and Park City. Brian got to experience Lagoon for the first time. He also was a first-time Alpine Slider as well. It was a blast and I'm already wishing we could go back to just hanging out with each other constantly without having the real world crushing down on us.
