Hey there, Hive, or as they say on the campus of my Alma mater, “Howdy!” Any other Aggies out there? I know you are, Miss Cardigan 🙂
I don’t think words can express how incredibly excited I am to be the newest Bee blogger! I was in the middle of five work conference calls on a Friday (who schedules meetings on Fridays?!?!) when I checked my iPhone and saw the welcome e-mail from Mrs. Penguin. I seriously jumped around our apartment (Yes, you read that right. I lucked into a job where I can often work from home.) for 15 minutes before beginning the calls to Mama Elephant, Mr. E, and my bridesmaids.
So who are the Elephants?

Mr. Elephant and I are another Match.com success story. We started e-mailing each other in March 2007, went on our first date one month later, and haven’t looked back. I work in the financial world, while Mr. E is doing double duty as a retail store manager while going to school to finish up his IT degree. We live together with my little rescue dog, Gypsy, and are planning and paying for (with the help of my parents) our big day.
The icon is super cute and blue, which happens to be one of our wedding colors. I may have also mimicked elephants once or twice on vacation.

I can’t wait to catch you all up on the planning good times I’ve had in the past year and a half and share the remaining time of our 25-month journey with you!
