Our Holy Union was Saturday, May 26, 2007, and everything went well. The photo here is of our family members who were in attendance: my mom Marge, brother Jeff, and sister Chris; Molly's mom Betty and dad Bob, her sister Cindy, and sister Michelle and her husband Tom. One of Molly's friends from college, Perry, took this photo for us. This photo was taken after the ceremony (the paraments had already been changed for Pentecost the next day). I have some pictures posted on flickr, but I hope to get more from the other people who attended (Hint, hint).

We had a nice number of people able to attend, given the distance and the holiday weekend. The semester ended May 18th. I actually finished the semester with no incompletes or extensions! We attended graduation on the 19th to support our friends and went out to Buca di Beppo's with Cathy to celebrate. Then we started cleaning house and finishing up all those other "details" like ordering the cake and the flowers and putting together a liturgy. Big thanks to Cathy who helped us clean one afternoon and took some boxes and bubble wrap off of our hands! Family started to arrive on Thursday. We took family to decorate the fellowship hall for our reception on Friday afternoon.

Saturday went well. One ring rolled away during the rehearsal, but it was quickly retrieved. The ceremony was quite lovely. Kim and Gale processed with us, one carrying the banner Molly and I had made, while the other brought in the Communion elements. Molly and I held hands. We lit candles on the altar. I read Ruth 1:16-19, and Molly read from 1 Corinthians 13:1-13. Chris played a beautiful flute solo. Kim gave a great homily and led our families, our community, and us through our vows. Gale led us in Communion, which Molly and I served. It was beautiful.

The reception was fun. The potluck style seemed to work with enough food for those who stayed. Our cake was delicious! We ordered it from Nanak Sweet Shoppe, a Persian bakery. We were, of course, exhausted after all of this. We enjoyed the time with our families, the last of whom left on the 30th. I had a very stiff neck and painful left shoulder during the ceremony and until Monday or Tuesday. Thankfully it feels better now. Stress, I'm guessing! Molly, her parents, Cindy, and Perry went to the zoo on Sunday afternoon -- I wasn't feeling up to it, but I am looking forward to seeing what new exhibits are up. Molly's parents took us to COSI on Tuesday. I'd never been, and it was an awesome experience.

Thank you to everyone who has sent cards or gifts and helped out in any way. We have been so overwhelmed by the blessings of your support. That's all I can think of to post right now. Thank you!

It is spring break week, and Molly and I have been busy. Unfortunately we were scheduled for LOTS of hours at work, because only a few people were around to work. However, we've also been busy working on some of the stuff for our Holy Union, to be held May 26th. We're working on invitations. We are gathering addresses and designing the invitation. I set up an event on Facebook. We registered at Target and Bed Bath & Beyond! That was fun -- dreaming of what we might someday want :) Plus there is schoolwork to get done, etc. Work has been somewhat more stressful than it had been for a while, since the old catalog ends tomorrow, and our supervisor hs been very stressed getting things transferred to the new system. Meh -- blech!

Our other news is Rosie! I will post pictures soon, but Rosie is our new gerbil :) She is very sweet and inquisitive and intelligent. We got her last night. She has a purple cage that sits by our computers so we can spend time with her. The cats, esp. Sparky and Zephyr, were fascinated. We need to train Zephyr how to interact nicely with Rosie and try to keep him from knocking her cage down or crushing it from above. She was very curious about them, too. She has wonderful whiskers =..= I will get pictures soon.
