We're Having a Baby - Making it Public

Once we finally hit the 12 week mark, we decided to publicly announce that we are expecting.  Social media is of course the method to spread news these days.  Our closest family and friends already knew but there were lots of others that we still were anxiously awaiting to tell.

We decided to announce it on Facebook and this is how I did it :

The Summer of Weddings

The summer of 2014 has been named the summer of weddings for Riley and I.

My cousin Nathan was married at the beginning of the summer, but we were unable to attend.  Riley's cousin Jaycea wed at the beginning of June and we unfortunately were not able to attend this one either as we both had bachelor and bachelorette parties for other weddings.

Riley's classmate, Brent, who is also the grandson of my former boss, Mary Ann, got married at the end of May.  Brent married Kayla and they both went to Horton High School like Riley and I.  It was an outside wedding and we had a wonderful time.

June 20 was my friend, Annette's big day.  I was honored to be a bridesmaid in her wedding as she married Dan in Manhattan on a beautiful Friday afternoon.

My high school friend, Kendelle was married to Andy on July 12.  I was able to stand up with Kendelle as her matron of honor and couldn't have been more honored.

Our final wedding of the summer was Riley's best friend, Jacob.  Jacob and Maddy's wedding was the perfect wedding to end the summer with.  I was happy to have Riley's family in attendance with me as Riley was busy with his role as the best man.
