he & she (november 2011)

:.. he and she ..:

She did her first set of incredibly long sub plans

But knew it was all worth it when she was in St. Thomas

He was busy with basketball and school

They finally became husband and wife on November 12th

And had the most perfect day

They went to St. Thomas on their honeymoon

They celebrated their first thanksgiving together

and are now back in their own house trying to settle in!

She has a feeling that now they they are married there will be a lot more "they" than "he and she"

My First Week as Mrs. Kittrell

I couldn't have asked for a better first week as a Mrs. We spent the week in beautiful St. Thomas! 

During our week.......
We were giddy with excitement.....
We stayed in a BEAUTIFUL place
We hung out with these guys...
We saw some pretty sunsets!
We dressed up!

We took the infamous ring picture! :)
We saw some of the bluest water!
We spent some time on the beach...
We ate some fabulous food!
We went on a Catamaran dinner cruise!
We talked about our wedding and dreamed about our future!
We were our goofy selfs!
We got to see this most days...
We dug our toes in the sand....
We got a little sunburned!
We saw birds dive bomb.... :) lol
We got to know each other better
We got a little artsy!
We had some fabulous milkshakes at.....
We spent our first week as Mr. and Mrs. Kittrell and loved every second of being together!

It was such an amazing week and we were so thankful to be there! Now, we are back and settling into our home together! It has been a busy couple of weeks but we are most definitely enjoying married life so far!

Great is Thy Faithfulness

Happy Thanksgiving! 

There is just so much to be thankful for not only today but every single day. The Lord has been so gracious to me and continued to bless me more and more. 

I couldn't help but think of the hymn, "Great is Thy Faithfulness" this morning..

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not
As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided--
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

He truly is so faithful and I am so grateful that His mercies are new every morning! 

I hope that your day is full of food, family, rest, and remembering all that the Lord has done for you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

A Big Thank You!

As I sit here, having just arrived back from an amazing week in St. Thomas with my husband, I am overwhelmed. I am full of so much gratitude for all of the people that made our wedding day so special and so perfect! I promise to have a more detailed post of each part of the day and the honeymoon very soon! Bear with me as this week will be one of gifts, returns, exchanges, traveling, Thanksgiving, thank you notes, settling in, etc. However, I'd like to thank a few very special people who made the details of the day perfect!

Our families: Wow! We have so much that we should thank you for. You have been such a huge support and encouragement to us. We don't deserve all that you have given us. You have taught us so much through the lives that you have lived. Thank you for your patience during the last months of planning. We love y'all!

Our wedding party: My gracious. What amazing friends you all are. We didn't deserve all of the sweet things you said at the rehearsal dinner! You were part of our wedding because you have been such an encouragement to us and such precious friends! Thank you for sharing our day!

Alisa and Jess: Ok. The photographer was a huge decision for me. I looked at several but in all honesty, once I saw you there was no competition. Now, I've only seen bridal portraits and a couple of sneak peeks but I have NO DOUBT that I will be forever grateful that you two photographed my wedding. Thank you for capturing our day and being so amazing and SO MUCH FUN to work with! Thank you for loving "the perfect light!" :)

Belle Bouquet and DJ's By The Bay: These vendors were so easy to work with and did a phenomenal job! Although I doubt you read my blog I wanted to give some credit where it belonged!

Anthony and Eric: Thank you for using your gifts. You did such a great job with the music at our ceremony. I know being outside presented some challenges but it sounded so great! Loved hearing the worship before the ceremony and loved walking back down the aisle to, "To God Be the Glory!"

Uncle Lance, Aunt Amy, Palm, and Liv: Thank you for each having a part in our day! We LOVE you all so much! Thank you for driving to Tampa and making that sacrifice! So grateful for your family!

Guests: Thank you for taking time out of your Saturday to watch us say I Do. We are so appreciative and thankful for each of you! We have amazing friends and family!

Brett: Thank you for being the one waiting at the end of the aisle. Thank you for the huge smile when you first saw me an the tears as I made it to the end of the aisle! Thank you for loving me well and making me the happiest girl in the world. I love you husband!
