we're back!

Well, we did it! We're married! And have been for a little over a week now. To say that our day was the most amazing day of my life so far would be an understatement. I wouldn't change a thing. Not even the crazy wind that froze us during our photos!

But sadly, our time of happiness has been tinged with grief and for this reason it has been difficult for me to get online and write this first post. I think once this one is out of the way, I will be able to move forward with our recaps but until I could get up the courage to write these words, I couldn't face starting...

My husband and I returned from our holiday after our wedding to the heartbreaking news that our Best Man's little daughter, 3 month old baby April, had died of SIDS during our absence. Passing peacefully in her sleep, April has left behind her triplet siblings, Evelyn and Connor, as well as her older siblings, our Godson Logan, Riley and Brody. I can't even begin to describe the sadness that surrounds us all at this time, as we get ready to farewell such a beautiful, long-awaited for princess tomorrow. I can only say that we feel truly blessed to have known her, held her and loved her, even for only the short while that we did. And we are truly thankful that we got to have her at our special day, before she said goodbye.

After tomorrow I will hopefully feel up to starting to give you all a bit of a taste of our wedding, or at least our mini-moon, before we receive our professional photos, as well as a bunch of projects that I didn't get to blog about before the big day (and those I couldn't blog about due to prying eyes!). But until then, any thoughts and prayers for our Best Man and his family would be much appreciated, especially through what is sure to be a difficult day tomorrow.

Much Love,

(for the first time)
