Thanks for your patience during my unintended hiatus from Smithellaneous. My computer finally decided it had played dead long enough and reluctantly roused itself from its lethargy long enough to go online again.
Diligent work continues on fine tuning the new design; the tabs on the Nav Bar at the top of the page should all be functional in the next couple of days. In the meantime, the “My Best Stuff” tab is up and running and has a potpourri of some of my favorite posts. If you have an extra moment or two, feel free to browse.
Thursday night we had an informal photo shoot with The Newly Engaged Twosome.
The evening started out with a crisis of sorts since the necklace Meagan planned to wear had gotten tangled. Since it was easier for her to untangle it on someone else’s person, Nathan became the Necklace Untangling Mannequin Guy. (And yes, that is a toothbrush poking out of Meagan’s mouth. She was multi tasking. As women are prone to do.)
And may I just say? He’d better get used to these kinds of scenarios. Women are always herding their patient husbands into sorta scary situations like, “Hold my purse, dear? Pick up feminine products at the grocery store, dear? May I have a hundred dollars, dear? Does this dress make me look fat, dear?”
It’s a veritable land mine out there, fellas.
So anyway, Nathan is getting broken in early, having to don yon necklace for a good cause.
After the Tooth Brushing/Necklace Detangling Ceremony was at an end, there was the all important Applying The Pictorial Lipstick Ceremony.
And then it began! Anything done with Nathan and Meagan is always loads of fun and this was no different.
This is one of my favorite shots; they were trying to produce non-smiley faces.
And this pretty much sums up the happy energy they have between them. (They broke into a sort of hillbilly, jiggy dance. For no reason.)
So happy for them. And us. And Meagan’s family.
We’re so thankful that God brought Meagan and Nathan together and are excited to see them walk (complete with joyful jigs) into their future together.
