another blog award...eekkk!

Courtney over at Tales from the Trails awarded me with this award July 15th. I didn't even notice until last night that she had left a comment on a previous post of mine letting me know!! I get all of my e-mails on my phone and for some reason, I never received the notification that she had left me a comment! Anyhow, enough of me trying to explain myself. Let me get to the good stuff!

Thank you so much Courtney!!
Now I have to answer these two questions...

1. Why did you start blogging?
My friend Brooke [that I've mentioned quite a few times], her Mother did our engagement pictures back in March. When I went to visit them for our session, Mrs. Tammy introduced me to her "blog". She has a "fun" blog & a photography blog. It was like love at first sight! I thought it was the neatest thing. It's kind of like scrapbooking, except it's all computerized. I love to scrapbook but just can't find the time anymore to sit down long enough to do it. By blogging, it's like a scrapbook, journal, picture album, & guestbook all-in-one. It's quick, easy, and very convenient. I originally got started thinking it would just be for local friends and family to view. Once I added Mrs. Tammy & figured out the whole "follower" thing, it was on! I was following cute blogs left and right. I love reading everyone's stories, recipes, crafting ideas...I love it all. I've met some really sweet people so far, and I hope to continue this blogging journey for many years to come!

2. What are your blogging rules? 
I try to use the least bit of foul language as possible. I will never post my friends last name's, and probably never my own. I try to at least get two posts in per week! Like Tales From the Trails, I don't share exactly where in Georgia I live, nor where the two of us work. This blog, like I mentioned in #1 was to originally be for friends & family members to view various ideas about our upcoming wedding. However, once into the blogging world, I realized there was much more to it than that. So, since I started it out weddingish, I'm going to keep it that way until next June. I like change, so I may change things up a bit between now and then, but for the most part I will continue to post like I have been. Not just wedding stuff, but a mixture of stuff about me and the fiance, and the stuff we enjoy doing. 

I am passing this award onto these lovely ladies!
Thanks girls for all of your sweet comments
