Title: Marriage and homes and life, oh my!
Post by: Favion on October 19, 2017, 09:13:33 PM
Hey all!

Figured I'd drop by. Felt you all should know that just over a year ago, October 15, 2016, I got married! It's been an amazing first year of marriage. Her name is Jess. AND, we're about to close on our first home! We close on Monday the 30th. We actually already live in the home, but now we'll have mortgage payments instead of rent each month.

Also, both my wife and I have been through a number of job changes. She's currently working as a Direct Support Professional for mentally disabled adults, and I recently got a job as Production Manager of a fairly large church in the area (~5000-6000 weekly attendees).

Anyway, here's a picture of us from our honeymoon, and of the home (the picture of the home is actually one from a few summers ago that the realtor took, but close enough). Hope all is well with the rest of you!

Funny enough, pretty sure I've been such a lurker for the past number of years that she's never even heard of GU....oops....

Thanks guys! Yes, we are incredibly lucky that we don’t need to actually move. We’re hoping to live here for a long time.

As for her joining, somehow I doubt that’ll happen. She’s not much of a techie person. I don’t think she’s ever been a member of a forum. And the most video games she plays are Ballz and Candy Crush on her phone  :lXD

Haha, it's not for everybody. Gratz on the marriage. A close friend of mine actually celebrated his 5th anniversary on the 20th. Extra kudos for going against the grain and not getting married in the summer! ;p

Nice! Fall weddings get the colors of the season...and you don't have to sweat in the heat either. ;)

...there's heat in Minnesota? ;p

Great pictures, Favion. Fall is my favorite time of year. Wish I could still see more of the colors, but I can't complain much :)
