These Two Weeks, Oh the Love

Oh, friends. It's good to be back among the internet-inclined. I have missed you. But only a little bit, I hope you understand. It has been two weeks and two days since Benjamin and I moved to Atlanta. I can't even describe to you how much life has been lived in this time. How much love has been shared and celebrated. I knew it was going to be. You see, Ben and I had a little secret. Well, not a secret secret, but  more like a "I'm only telling you if you ask me about it" type of thing. The plan was that we would elope, civil ceremony style, once my parents got to Georgia with my car/our belongings. I planned the whole thing from California and it seriously could not have gone any better! I promise to dedicate an entire post to it next week sometime.. and then again once we have our official photographs from our awesome photographer, Nina Parker.

So, below you will find a snapshot of how we've filled our weeks. We've enjoyed family outings thrift/antiquing and found a really cool vintage bookstore. We've gone to church and to brunch. Ben officially proposed to me in front of the Woodruff Arts Center where we had our first date at the High Museum of Art and saw the Picasso to Warhol exhibit. Baby Benjamin found his hand and then his fingers (can't wait to write his three month letter next week!). Nom nom nom. I had two of the sweetest guys for Valentine's. WE GOT MARRIED! Benjamin and I met his daddy's best friend and his Godfather, Chris. I started cooking and baking dairy free. (More on that yumminess, soon!) We've had visitors and play dates. Benjamin met his paternal Grandmother and maternal Great Grandparents and Great Great Grandfather! How cool is that? We've slowly been moving into our new apartment which Mommy loves. Daddy did a good job! Things are really quite good. Enjoy the peek! xo,  Mrs. Pete thankyouverymuch
PS - We dropped down about 10 spots on Top Baby Blogs while I was away. Womp womp womp. Will you show us a little love and vote for us today? Please and thank you!! You're the best. You. We love you!
