Hali and Chris Wedding

Waaaay back on May 3rd of this year Hali and Chris were married up on Lake Oconee.  It was a beautiful day.  Beth went to school with both of them and has known them forever.  There were lots of Beth’s friends there and we had a great time catching up with everyone.
The wedding was held on a little point of land that jutted out from the hotel’s pool area into the middle of the lake.  The semi-weird part was walking past folks swimming in the pool in a suit.  They got great seats to a wedding and got to wear swim trunks.  If only I had known!  The whole random pool crowd clapped once the wedding was over which was pretty funny.
I didn’t get a chance to really get to know either of them during their wedding for obvious reasons but have had a chance to get to know them recently while we were visiting San Antonio/Austin.  They are both “good people” and seem to be very happy.  More about our San Antonio trip coming up!

She’s a burke now…


This kind of thing still kinda cracks me up.  This is on Beth’s office  - all of these people know her only as a Burke.  It’s still a little surreal that her name is Burke now…


10.8.11 -- Engagement Anniversary


Beth and I got engaged exactly 1 year ago yesterday.  It’s hard to believe that only one year ago we were calling all of our friends and family and letting them know the news.  The ring shopping, wedding planning, etc. phew – that was all very hard work!

Thankfully we decided to get married quickly – most couples are still planning their wedding a year later.  I can’t imagine still going through all of that.  I loved our wedding and wouldn’t change it for the world but man-o-man was it stressful!

Our first blog post on this site was October 12 of last year so it’s also our blog’s anniversary.  Happy anniversary to you too, blog.  Thanks for working most of the time and for not responding too quickly – it’s good to keep our readers in suspense as long as possible.

I’m going to make a concerted effort to increase my number of posts on here.  All kinds of stuff has happened since I last posted so I have plenty of things to share!


NOTE: The above picture has absolutely nothing to do with our getting engaged.  It was taken in Piedmont Park on 1/30/2011.  I included it for no reason other than it was a good picture and I wanted to.
