The Big Day!

T and I are back from our honeymoon in Napa!  We had an awesome wedding day and a wonderful time in Napa.

The Thursday before we headed down to Hollister Ranch to get together with T's family.  It was such a sweet time of visiting, food, drink, and fun!  When we arrived on Thursday night, T's sister Shelly and Phil had a surprise waiting for T and me...something we have wanted for a long time!  They made this bar for us from wine barrels and oak! They even made a little logo/monogram that says KT.  We were so surprised and we love it!
The views from the ranch that night were really feel like you are away on vacation when you head to the ranch.  It is so beautiful and special. 

Friday was another fun day, we went wine tasting with a small group, and hung out at the beach when we got back.  After that T and I took the kids home to call it an early night, and to prepare for the wedding the next day. 


Finally, Saturday arrived.  I got up early and showered and left to have my hair done.  While I was doing that T had a rehearsal with Pastor Jay (Judy was my fill in).  After he left and the coast was clear, I showed up for my rehearsal (now Judy filled in for T).  A while later, we checked into our rooms to begin getting ready.

New House & 2 More Days!!!!

We are finally all moved into the new house.  After three months of renovations, it is almost done.  I say almost because we still  have a few unexpected items to deal with, and we still have the back yard to finish.

Also, we are only 2 days away from the wedding!  Where did the time go, I remember when it was something like 180 days to the did it get here so fast?  I am almost ready, but have a lot of last minute little things to do.

This afternoon we head to Hollister Ranch for a "mini family reunion/dinner/camp-out".  T's family are all here from the east coast for the wedding.  We haven't seen them all since last year when we went on the cruise.  I'm super excited to see them all and that they came for the wedding.

In the mean time, here are some pictures of the new house!  I will post an update with pictures after the wedding on Saturday!
