Celbratory Celebrating Pt. II

After our cliff-hanger of a blog post on Monday I’m sure everyone’s nails are bitten down to the quick as they wait for the other photos of our smiling faces. Well, wait no more!

After the Ceremony Maple and myself were both starving and food was deemed necessary. Chrissy, Maple and myself trooped over to the Falafel stand where we were given free baklava in honor of our newly Celebrated state.

And then Maple was done with pictures at the TS.

Next stop was just up the hill from our house, there’s a spot where you can just see forever. The clouds were perfect. And Chrissy is an amazing photographer. All this is to say, these pictures turned out really well!

My old band, The Worst Band in Fairbanks composed a song for us titled, "I Found Love in a Dumpster."

More good friends.

Before we knew it it was time to close everything down, clean up and head home. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, better friends or better community. We are truly blessed. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Cheers and Love,

Maple and Me
