Reminiscing about our Engagement

So far it has been an amazing nine months. As our one year anniversary approaches we have been reminiscing about our engagement and how much fun we had. I sent Jewelly on a scavenger hunt to a few locations that had special meaning to us. I gave her clues that were put inside little smiley face eggs. The first clue took her to a terrace on a hill where we had thought about having a wedding reception. Her dad and one of her brothers were waiting for her with the next clue. That clue took her to Yogurtland, the place where it all started for us. Two of her other siblings were waiting for her there. The next clue took her to a park on a hill where a few months earlier she had given me her first kiss. It was there that she caught up with me for the last clue. You have to watch the slideshow to see what happened next.

The Fam

Here's the latest Nelson and Hart family pic taken while we explored the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach!

Are you done yet???

As you may know Brian is currently working on his Masters in Apologetics. Going into this weekend he had to finish reading his fourth book of the semester, write a book report, and complete a question set consisting of eight questions, each three to four paragraphs in lenght. By the grace of God he finished all of it and we still got to spend some time together.

One of the highlights of our weekend was going to pick up our wedding album today. Yes, you read that correctly, we have been married for almost nine months and we just got our wedding album...better late than never, right? It turned out beautiful and make me excited to print more pictures from our wedding and hang them in our house! The other fun thing we did today while out in Glendora picking up our album was visit some model homes. Though they are way out of our range, which at the moment is the apartment we are in, we had fun dreaming!

Here are some pics of Brian working on his school stuff. I got a little bored this evening! =)

Beach Day

Jewelly and I headed down to Huntington Beach today to spend some time with a few friends. We recently met up with another couple who go to our church. They also play beach volleyball. I was able to play a few games. Wow! Talk about being out of shape. I got winded just warming up. Jewelly was watching, while hanging out with a few of the lady friends. After playing two games and getting sweaty, a few of us took a stroll down to the ocean and jumped in. It was quite frigid, but oh so refreshing!!!

Living and Loving

As of today Brian and I have been married 8 months and two days. What an incredible time this has been! Over and over we have stopped to marvel at the precious gift we have been given in one another. This is a beautiful season of two lives becoming one in the grace and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ. In our blogging we hope to share all that the Lord is doing in and through us as we journey together with Him.
