Geez I'm already terrible at this! I'm a little behind in my own personal journal here, so this may be a rather long update... bear with me!
Sooo after 3 1/2 long months of being engaged (which felt like FOREVER) we finally made it to the wedding date on August 14th and every part of the day was even more amazing than I had pictured it. Thanks to the many hands of my family and friends, the reception in Mesa was incredible. I'm not even sure I got to soak it in as much as I wanted to, but looking back on pictures now, everything was beautiful! Surprisingly, I even enjoyed being in the line for most of the time. And then when we hit the dance floor, the real party began! We had such a blast and part of me is disappointed that it happened so fast.
Luckily, we had the open house in Salt Lake to look forward to, which was just as amazing as the one in Mesa. Its been my dream since i was little to have an outside reception. When we decided to get hitched during the hottest time of the year in Mesa, I started to realize that my dreams may be ruined by the 115 degree heat. Luckily, I got to have the best of both worlds by having an inside one in Mesa, and a gorgeous outside reception at Jordan's uncle Scott and aunt Linda's house. The whole Christensen/Jorgensen clan put so much time and effort into the open house and once again, it totally exceeded our expectations. I loved getting to relive the night over again!
Once the wedding festivities were over, we started to get settled into our little apartment in Provo while starting school and getting back into the swing of things with work. Sad to say, its taken us these full 2 months to get settled but finally our apartment is starting to feel like a home. Its been fun for us to paint/decorate, but its kind of a lot of work. I can only imagine decorating an entire house... seems like a daunting task! Now we've jumped right back into hectic life or work and school, but married life really is the best. Everyone told me that before I got married, and now we get to experience it ourselves!
