I didn't MEAN to stop blogging!
I've just been very busy, I suppose! I've also been a little frustrated with my laptop, so I haven't been doing many things I usually did online. I'm going to try to continue blogging, because I do very much enjoy it!
So many wonderful things happened since my last post!
Mr. Lock and I got married, first of all. I never blogged about my wedding! I cannot believe it.
So, we had an absolutely fantastic wedding day. After a very cool spring, our May 24th wedding day was sunny and quite warm! It was just perfect. Everything went according to plan, and I just had so much FUN. The dance party was everything I wanted it to be (that's my favourite part of any wedding, so it was what I cared very much about for my OWN wedding). My aunts and uncles on my mother's side stayed right until the very end of the night, and we even ended everything with a big group sing-along to Bohemian Rhapsody... it was so cool. They had such a great time, I was glad I could provide them with that! I was the first of my cousins to get married on both sides of my very large family, so it was a very special event for everyone.
It was just so exciting to have all of the important people in our lives gathered together in one place... I am so very happy with how my wedding day went! It all went by very quickly... however, I have incredibly happy memories of the day.
After the wedding, it was time to write report cards and finish off my year teaching SK/1. I had such a great class, it was bittersweet to see the school year end. We were also spending time doing some furniture shopping and continuing to set up our new house. It is coming along nicely. Our next project will be painting and putting up photos and art, so far we have nothing on the walls. We are taking our time though. As a new construction, it is recommended we wait to paint until the house has settled more. We can still have the builder come back and fix a few things up until the 1 year mark, so we may wait to paint because we have some nail pops that need repair.
Married life has been great so far! For Mr. Lock and I, not much changed, since we were already living together and forging our life together. We are very happy, though.
I will update soon about our honeymoon trip this summer -- we drove through the East Coast of Canada, and it was an amazing adventure!
