Megan & Rob. Wedding.


in Weddings

They say that distance makes the heart grow fonder. Never has this been more true than with Megan & Rob. These two lovebirds spent their entire time dating while in two different cities. Despite the geographical distance, they were able to get to know each other & fall head over heels in love. Megan & Rob are two ultra-fabulous individuals who are the most down-to-earth, sweetest people you’ve ever met. And they want everyone around them to be just as happy as they are. In fact, when I first spoke with Megan on the phone, we chatted for almost an hour & I felt as if I was talking to an old friend. She told me about Rob, about the details of their wedding & their plans after their big day. Her excitement was palpable & I could not wait to photograph their wedding!

Let’s be honest…I’m a huge sucker for details. Megan & Rob’s wedding was nothing but detail after detail…handmade lovebirds on their cake…Megan’s handmade flower in her hair…birdcages that adorned the tables at their reception…toothbrush party favors that each guest received (Rob is a dentist & Megan is a hygenist-soooooo cute!) ….I could go on and on! The details are what make a wedding special & unique & Megan did a fabulous job thinking of all the details that would make their wedding reception gorgeous!

Megan & Rob-thank you so much for inviting me to be part of your beautiful day! I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know you both & I know your lives will be fun, successful & blissful! And I am so excited that for the first time in your relationship, you will be living in the same city! With much love….xoxo, marielle.

Camping & Biking the C&O Canal

Harper's Ferry, West Virginia. Grayden, Anne, Rob, me and Shelley
This past weekend we all went camping in West Virgina. I love camping, and it had been so long since I had been able to go. We drove there Saturday and spent the afternoon in Harper's Ferry. Rob and I biked home. We did 65 miles on our bikes all the way back to DC!

Rob getting the fire ready for some tin foil dinners. After dinner I made Rob play some guitar as we roasted our marshmallows. I wish we could have stayed for days. Shelley enjoying dinner. 3 miles into our bike ride. We enjoyed the first half of the trail all to ourselves. The entire ride home was beautiful and the weather perfect.
Look closely there are turtles all over the logs. There were so many along the trail. I love turtles.

The closer we got to DC the more crowded it got plus it was Mother's Day weekend. We did it though and with no training. Rob did great on motivating me the whole way home. I heart biking. I want to do it again!

Change of Mind

I think I'm going to hold off on the electric piano. Sure would be nice to have something to pay and learn on but I did some research and I would rather put the money towards a acoustic piano down the road.

I've fallen in love with Costco online. There are things they sell on the website you just can't get in the stores. my latest purchase; this Brother sewing machine great starter machine. I got it for $125.99 what a deal, shipping included. Can't wait to start playing around with it.
I really want to learn how to play the piano. I played for a few years at a young age; needless to say I remember nothing. I figure what better way to learn then get a piano. Really though it's quite a nice, affordable, compact, light in weight piano. At least I think it is? It's a Suzuki Digital Console Piano. I know nothing about pianos, looks like a good deal though. Do you know anything about pianos? would this be a good one to learn on? If only it came with a personal instructor to bad Costco doesn't sell them. Click here for more info. The top folds down and it becomes a piece of furniture. If piano lessons fail I will have just bought a very expensive table.

2009 National Marathon

Getting our bags checked before the race starts. The sun was just starting to come up. I finished in 4 hrs. and 50 min. Lucky for me I was the last to come in, everyone was there to cheer me on at the finish line. Everyone did so well. I'm so proud of you all!

Especially this guy.

My training partner Anne she is speedy.

We were all hurting pretty bad the next day. I have a greater appreciation for the American Disability Act, I used all handicap accessories railings, ramps, even the bars next to toilets in public restrooms. When I went to put my church shoes on I realized my feet were swollen 1/2 size bigger!
I loved every minute of it. Lets do it again!

Wish Me Luck...I'll need it

This Saturday is the marathon, it's finally here. I'm so excited but nervous at the same time. I get butterflies just thinking about it. Anne and I did our final run today, it was only 3 miles. Anne has been a great running partner. I would not have been able to do the training for this without her.
Any advice from those of you who have ran a marathon?
