Bonjour! Hi everyone! I’m pumped to be here! I saw the surprising email from Mrs. Mouse when I was lying in bed in our condo at Snowshoe Mountain for a “romantic getaway” with Mister P. I wouldn’t normally be on my phone on vacation (I like to unplug and decompress), but the lady at the front desk said there was no Wi-Fi in the rooms, and because I’m one of those annoying skeptics, I just had to test it out. When my phone connected to the Wi-Fi, I saw the email, and this is what you get!
All terrible photos personal
My expression after seeing Mrs. Mouse’s email. Sorry about the dark selfie. Actually, I’m not really that sorry. Raw emotion, people.
Mister P and I have been engaged for nearly two years, and I’ve been waiting rather impatiently to get close enough to the wedding that I could apply to blog for Weddingbee. And so, literally eight months to the day from our wedding, I hit “send” on my application, and here I am!
Why the Parisians? Well, I have been dying to be a part of the honeymoon generation since the beginning, so I was glad there was one honeymoon moniker left (Mrs. Bunting, you are so talented!). But furthermore, Mister P and I plan to learn French together. You see, my future mother-in-law and her brothers were born in France (their parents were missionaries there), and so the mister’s family on his mom’s side all speak French. Mister P and I both learned Spanish in high school, so we feel a little left out at family gatherings when everyone decides to practice their French together. Originally we planned to learn after the wedding, but now I think I might need to expedite the process!
We also have a ridiculous French bulldog (our fourth furbaby—yes, we have a zoo), and since French Bulldog already existed, I’m excited to bee here with another French-themed moniker instead.
The Parisians with our Frenchie, Josie. Yes, we named her Josie because we had three cats and we wanted to say “Josie and the Pussycats.” Yes yes, that is a Ghostbusters T-shirt I’m wearing. Thanks for noticing. What’s up.
And because our dog is awesome, here’s another picture of her.
More gratuitous doggy photos to come. Until then, love from our sleepy little Gremlin!
I’m so excited to share our wedding-planning journey with you all! I’ll have lots of
unsolicited advice, DIY projects, and crazy stories to share along the way. I hope you’ll enjoy, and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on everything as well!
