We dressed up for Halloween and went out with friends.  We drank, we danced and we drank some more.  By the end of the night our costumes and make up looked a mess and we had a great time.  Here are a few of the pics from the evening.  Mine and my wife's makeup were done by her.   We were dressed in celebration for Día de los Muertos (day of the dead).

Really like this pic.  Took and edited with my phone.

So, it's been awhile...

Holy shit, Batman!  It has been forever since I last wrote anything.  I believe about two months.  Let me just start off by saying, “wow, a lot has happened.” 
            Let’s see, where to start?  I took a second job, carved some pumpkins, went to Key West, won a photo contest… is there something else… uhm… oh yea, I got married.  Before the wedding I took a second job just to have a little extra cash flow before and after the wedding.  So at nights I clean office buildings.  Fast forward a few weeks, the day before the wedding we met up with the fam and wedding party had a rehearsal dinner, said may goodbyes to the future misses, and headed to the house for the evening.  While sitting with the best man at the house, we decided to get some food.  We also got a couple of pumpkins to carve (we had been drinking and it was a good idea at the time).  Little did we know we would carve the most amazing jack-o-lanterns.  I did the silhouette of beer bottle and he did Raphael from the ninja turtles.  I can’t explain in words how awesome they looked.  So I will post some photos.  The next day was a scramble to finish getting everything perfect for the wedding hanging lights, putting up signs, buying a bottle of Jameson for the musician; it was a hectic morning and early afternoon.  I finish getting all décor up with an hour to spare before it was go time.  Trucked it back to the house with the best man and a photographer where my brother and sister were waiting.  We got ready in no time flat and were back out the door and on our way back to the wedding site.  It’s funny because for the few weeks before people kept asking me if I was nervous even day of people asked, but I wasn’t until I realized that I would be reading my vows, that I wrote, out loud.  I jokingly said to my brother, sister and best man on the way to the wedding that I was just going to cry like a baby so I wouldn’t have to read them.  We arrived, ran in, got our buttoner placed on our chest, and put into position. The music started and the bridesmaids came down. Then it was her.  The pastor motioned everyone to stand. I couldn’t see her until she turned the corner of the wall of people that blocked my view.  The world stopped.  Have you ever seen a movie where there is a lot of chaos going on then everything just freezes except for one or two things? It was like that.  The lights dimmed except one spotlight that came from somewhere and beamed on her walking towards me.  it seemed days before she got to the end end of her thirty foot walk but when she arrived everything seemed to fastforward and went into a blur, not sure if it was because it was like a dream, or the excitement and anticipation was that overwhelming or the fact that I was literally crying like a baby, but it was over in a flash and we were married.  The reception was amazing and everything went off without a hitch.  Thank God.  But it all wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for everyone that helped.  So a big thanks to her parents and mine and everyone else that was there for us.
            One week later we set off to Key West where it was eighty five and sunny all week long, the drinks where cold and refreshing, the water was crystal clear, and the food was fresh and delightful. 
            When we got back I found out that I won a photo contest at Ohio State that I had entered a month earlier, my new wife and I carved some more pumpkins, and life couldn’t be any better.
            Side note; I recently got a new phone, a smart phone, I guess my old phone was to dumb for this day and age.  So with my new phone it comes with apps to add on so you can do anything with a phone now.  Well one of the apps is a photo editing app, so I plan to post a random photo at least weekly taken and edited with just my phone and nothing else.  Prepare your self.

So until next time, don’t worry, be happy.
