Chris and Kristie, originally uploaded by chrisheuer. Love one another and you will be happy. It’s as simple and as difficult as that. ~Michael Leunig
This past Monday was our six month anniversary. I completely forgot. Whoops. Luckily, I am married to a wonderful man who has a forgiving heart. And one who accepts bribes. Married life is good people. Married life will also be expensive, I am sure, as my memory is going to hell in a hand basket.
Heuer. Actually, the #1 ‘thing’ I am thankful for. Thanksgiving will always hold a special place in my heart as two years ago, at about this hour, Heuer got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. ———-> I am so very lucky to have him as my partner and I will make sure I tell him this, every day, not just on this special day. I <3 you baby.
Things have been a wee bit hectic since Chris and I got back from Mexico, so I just wanted to reach out quickly and give you a little update. (1) Photos. We have over 1500, yes that is 1500, photos to STILL go through so this is going to take some time. We are having everyone who took photos to post them online and we will be making this a master photo album of the trip. Chris has started to put some of the better (i.e. edited) ones into an album for us, which is where I would check back … Read More ›
While the ‘ditto’ following Chris’ vows might have been funny to some, it wasn’t what I had really intended to say to him. I had actually written vows. Real vows. But I thought it would be silly of me to hold a piece of paper up during the ceremony, so I left it in the room thinking I would remember it all. I mean, logic told me all I had to do was look into Chris’ beautiful blue/green eyes and the words of love would all come streaming through me. Not. Chris’ vows stunned me. I don’t know why I … Read More ›
You asked, so here they are… audio and video to come later in the week. ——– Yes, we are match kids, in the truest sense of the word. We met because I changed my expectations of what I was looking for on match.com and I winked at you. Its a good thing you winked back online, because you can’t physically wink at all. I was attracted to you then because of your love for Dave Matthews, your great attitude, your smile and the fact that you werent looking for a serious relationship. Now almost 1400 days later, here we are … Read More ›
So Kristie has been on me to write this post for a few months now – since it is less then a week till we leave for our walk down the aisle, I figured I have waited long enough to tell you about the guys who will be accompanying me. Meet Scott Becker, Greg Marcellino and Coleman Hutchins – all good friends from college who are still friends with me after all these years, despite suffering through most of those 4 years of drunken madness at American University. My best man (on left) is Scott Becker, all-star golfer, guitar player, … Read More ›
I have planned a few events in my lifetime and thought I was pretty darn good at budgeting needs and associated costs by now. I thought this, that is, until I started doing the checklist of all the things we need to do before we head to Mexico, and suddenly realized how many little ‘big’ things I forgot to factor in… Cat sitter – $350 Home alarm system – $450+monthly expense (so let’s just call it $930 for one year) Cables and other tech stuff – $250 Suitcases/bags – $150 Personal trainer – $1,600 (which hindsight tells me, we should … Read More ›
Since neither of us lost the 30 pounds we would have liked to before the ‘big day’, we are now doing everything else we can to take the focus off our plump bodies. First stop – BriteSmile. They promise an hour and a half of your life for a whiter, healthier looking smile. So of course, I signed up us. If you have beautiful pearly whites beaming in the Mexican sunshine, no one is going to be looking at your double chin, right? Chris and I head down to their Union Square ‘lab’, don some funky orange glasses, settle into … Read More ›
