Married Life!

us

It has been a while! Seems like life just keeps going and going and going! If you’re a friend on Facebook you likely know the news. I got married!

We toyed with dates, tried to come up with the perfect day again and again we’d plan big, we’d scale down small, then just core people! Oh we had paper with names jotted down, had catering costs, church costs, destination weddings – you name it! And in the end, all of that planning we said our vows at our church with the Pastor and 2 witnesses.

We’ve had quite the adventure in our first week of marriage, and now into week three, the adventure continues! We have been moving me in, cleaning, rearranging, fixing up and settling into living together! I’ve been enjoying cooking, made some tasty enchiladas last night (if I do say so myself, Daisy did too!) 🙂

I’ve really found it neat to talk to folks who recount to me the way things came together:

Was so excited when I saw you were engaged, then it was like no time at all and it was MARRIED that’s so cool, I’m so happy!

I know in my family there were longer engagements but for us it’s worked. Are we perfect? Nope! But we have three things going for us, Love for God and Love for Each Other and We’re just awesome people 😀

We have so much going on, trying to get 2 people to fit in a house (I have stuff…) lol but too catching up on sleep! We’ve literally been go go go since Day 1 (Daisy even got in a half marathon!), I’ll rest soon enough! But going to ask openly and honestly for your continued prayers! Been quite the journey so far, and more amazing things to come! As my laundry is going in the garage, and load of dishes going in the kitchen, was time for a quick break, but back to it! Need to go do some running around, already grabbed our new devotional and want to get some more milk! 😀

Hope everyone is having a blessed day!

Hang on tight, it’s going to be an AMAZING Journey!

So life is changing. Not just a job, not a change of location, but an addition to my family! The Brown’s will be welcoming a Hermosa to join our family, as my wife.

Yes you read that right, I’m getting married and have been Happily Engaged to Daisy Hermosa since July 29th in the early morning! Yes we had waited to post anything for a few reasons like telling family, and some key folks – but too a certain nephew was making his debut and as we love my sister and brother in law, we didn’t want anyone to miss out on this beautiful baby boy’s arrival!

I’m getting married!

I’m insanely excited as she is an amazing woman! She shares my love of the Lord, my sense of humor, my desire of light and easy, and we just click in about every way, even with our differences we still just work and God continues to bless us as we move forward! Even as we told family and worried about what people might say about our short time together, we were blessed with folks who were happy and not too surprised, as for nearly 5 months we have nearly been ever been apart (except for Work & Sleep!).

We are still working out all the details, but things are moving forward – I’ve put in my final notice for my apartment to save some extra money leading up to the wedding, still not official date set, but were going small, intimate and mainly family with some dear friends who will join us at our sides (or so is the plan!) – while the idea of a big wedding and big reception would be awesome we are currently leaning towards simple & easy – sticking to the similar desire of life to be light and easy, our wedding day will be blessed not stressed.

Most importantly I have one request of all readers of this blog:

Pray for Us.

We desire it! We could ask for Target Gift Cards, Toasters, and all those usual gifts we hear about out there, and don’t get me wrong we loved being blessed, but you could bless us even more with your prayers for our marriage as it grows and we build our family!

Things are in motion. Today even I’ve been going through clothes, cabinets, and more, The Rootbeer Recovery Center (the name my apartment gained a long time ago) will be retired within 2 weeks, lots to do! Wedding to plan, and an amazing life to get started on 🙂 Thanks for the prayers and thanks for reading!

We are excited! :-D
We are excited! 😀
