christmaselk [ blessings in disguise ]

Recently, @elierjeily and I got married. At the last minute, the venue fell through, so @Mamacita.Rita and @a_brantingham volunteered their home to us.
An entire community came together to make this backyard wedding magical. Huge thanks to Rita's and Andrew's families and to mine for all of your hard work. Thanks to @2ndtruth for the flowers, to the talented @EricMueller for the gorgeous photos (www.ericmuellerphotography.com), to Andrew for hosting and playing excellent guitar, but thanks most of all to Rita. Her kindness, generosity, hard work, and impeccable taste saved the day.

We'll never have enough words to thank Rita and company. They made the day more beautiful and perfect than we could possibly imagine. Now the flowers have wilted and the decorations are gone, but our wedding clothes still smell deliciously of campfire and our hearts are full. #CommunityFirst || #OnlyinMN

christmaselk I've had a crazy year. Some really bad things happened, but then some really good things happened too. In retrospect, many of those bad things were actually good things in disguise, but that didn't make dealing with them any easier at the time. Through all of it, my friends have been a great support. Some extended holiday invites, some helped me move, some cooked my favorite things for me, some distracted me with music, dancing, or making photos, while others listened to all the strange things that happened and offered good and welcome advice. I'm lucky to have such amazing friends, many of whom are here on @instagram.
To @Matt_Treiber @EricMueller @Paul_Johnstone @BYUalumnus @T_Roby @TGruffi @KatherinePagliai @Mamacita.Rita and @DanaMarieKU: thanks for being so awesome! I can't tell you how much I appreciate you.
