Sunday we received the motherload. The online gallery of all our wedding photos. Nearly 800 pictures to pour over, the culmination of a very interesting journey. And as we looked through the photos, I kept thinking
wow I make a lot of really stupid faces man I really need to get thank you notes ordered about how we really got it right in the end. Like Kate Hudson’s character says in Almost Famous, “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it isn’t the end.” I can say with a very happy heart that it was okay (better than okay in fact) and I’m so glad it’s the end.
I promised more thoughts on the whole wedding process, and that post is coming later this week with what I’m trying to somehow narrow down into my top 10 favorite photos, but tonight I’m sharing the small things. Because just like the ‘big picture’, the happy little details have their time and place too.

If you’re anxious for more photos, and your name is Kacie and you don’t use social media, check out my Facebook album HERE.
Oh, and speaking of Kacie, here’s something else to get excited about…
We were onto them the night of the wedding, but finally I can confirm and share the news that these two love birds are expecting a baby in August! Who’s ready to talk baby showers?! (Two hands high in the air over here)
