We got married! Well at least in Guatemala. It was a beautiful service thanks to our wonderful family and friends who were so sweet and gracious to make this nice for us. My mom and step-dad got to be there, and we proved that smiles and love are a universal language.
While in Guatemala I got a job! WOO HOO! Rachel Castlen-Estrada helped me find it. I will be a teacher at an American style school, with 90% Korean students, in Guatemala. Go figure....I got to substitute for about a week while I was there. I think its going to be a great fit and never leave me lacking interesting stories to tell people back home. We also found and apartment! We'll be living in the same building as Rachel and her husband Jose (another JBU alum). Here's a pic of the apartment and our view.
I came back to the States July 3rd. Just in time for my last 4th of July in the good ol USofA. Since then I've been up to my eyeballs in wedding planning and life stuff, getting ready to move to Guatemala. I've been enjoying spending time with my family and just relaxing.
I've also become mildly obsessed with the idea of DIY. I'm reading lots of blogs and itching to get to Guatemala where I can decoupage and refinish furniture to my heart's content. As of yet I've taken on various sewing projects. See below....
This is a closeup of the coin purse. I love this vintage fabric. This was almost my first attempt at using a zipper. Not perfect, but ok for my first shot.
