A period of suspension
of work, study, or other activity;
Usually used for rest, recreation, or travel.

Josh and I just returned home after spending
 a lovely week in Mexico. The reason for our trip?

Engagements and groomal pictures.
The whole process was an adventure (to say the least).

Four hours in the Mexico airport

The most rain I have ever seen  

A crocodile next to our house

Three scorpion run-ins

A couple of long wormy things

Waking up at 2 A.M. for hair and make-up

Cold showers

Pyramid climbing

Total Bliss

We were lucky enough to have some pictures taken
 at Chichen Itza, one of the
Seven Wonders of the World.

I will post our professional pictures in a week or so. For now, here are some snap shots of our week:

The group.

Kevin and Tami: The Adventure Professionals.

Josh and Shanae: The future Mr. and Mrs.

Emily: The hair stylist and florist (S-I-L, friend, confidant).

Kellie: The best friend and the snap-shot-shooter.

Rachael and Tyler: The photographers and our newest friends.

Akumal Beach.


Who wouldn't want this forever?

The Other Woman


This little girl

knows what I am talking about.

The Mayan Miracle Foundation.

Santa Rita.

If you don't know what

 I am talking about, stay tuned for future posts. 

The photo shoot.

Who is that girl on the right? DAAAAMN!

This trip was one of my favorites.

27 May 2010

Uneasy. Apprehensive.

Not easy in body or mind; uncomfortable; restless; disturbed; perturbed.

Over the course of my Twenty-three years, I have accomplished many things
Milestones, if you will
Perhaps the most significant of these milestones
have happened recently
Graduating high school was a big one for me
Just Kidding
Sort of
Deciding on my future career
My current career as a professional student
Costa Rica
But the most important and pristine is,
without question,
Engagement to My Josh

The date is 07.01.10.
So while I linger on the cusp of marriage, I intend to
start our blog
I am completely unfamiliar with all things computer
I have never been involved with any sort of
"social networking site"
So forgive me, but I am a little nervous
I have been waiting for the right one, the right site
So, with this, my first post
I surrender my virginity
