Scraps of Life

Life As a Scrapbooking Newlywed

Let’s Start at the Very Beginning

…a very good place to start!

We’ve now been married for 24 days and it doesn’t seem possible. Tomorrow will be our first holiday as a married couple and I’m really excited to share it with both of our families. Mother-in-law invited my parents and brother over to their house tomorrow for a cookout and we’re also going to Stricker’s Grove, a small amusement park only opened to the public a few times a year. I’ve never been there but we’ve watched some videos about their rides and it looks like such a fun little park.

Work let us out an hour early today but the ride home wasn’t so great. I hadn’t been feeling well since around one and the bus was a very bumpy ride. Thankfully I was able to come home and take nap with my cat before heading over to my parent’s house for a wine and pasta night. It was delicious and I was feeling much better by the end of the time there.

Now Matt and I are reliving our childhood by watching new episodes of Figure It Out. It’s scary how much they kept the show the same. Sooooo corny but it’s so fun to watch for a good laugh. We’re also officially old. Kenan & Kel and All That are showing reruns on Nick at Nite.

Andy Griffith passed away this morning and I can truly say that I am sad and send my deepest condolences to the family. I loved The Andy Griffith Show and more than once wished I could just jump into Mayberry and live there. Such a simple place and time; almost impossible to find nowadays.
