OMG, I’m a Bee!

I can’t bee-lieve the honor of bee-ing a bee has bee-n bee-stowed on me!

Phew! Now that that’s out of my system, I can tell you a bit about me. The short story? I was an army brat, moving around a lot until my family finally settled in a small town in Ohio when I was in fourth grade. I grew up and graduated from high school there. After that, I moved to Toledo to work on my bachelor’s degree. During my senior year of college, Mr. Cannon and I fell in love and have remained so ever since.

Why Miss Cannon? Well, aside from the super-cute graphic, it made me think of the King. Mr. Cannon and I share a love of fifties music, and he is a huge Elvis fan. (Yes, we’ve been to Graceland. It was his second trip there.) Anyway, this song has made a few playlists I’ve made for Mr. Cannon, so I thought becoming Miss Cannon would be a cute tribute. I’m like a cannonball, right? And that’s related to a cannon. OK, it’s not a perfect match, but it’s the inspiration.

We are also punk and ska fans, so while we’re on the subject of artillery and songs that I’ve put on playlists for Mr. Cannon, this song also popped up in my mind…

So, what are you in for with us Cannons? A little DIY, a lot of color, and a bunch of kid-friendly reception ideas. All we want from our wedding is for every single person there to have a blast. Is that too much to expect? I don’t think so! I’ve definitely had my notions of what a wedding can be shaken up by the hive, so I hope I can inspire you all with my ideas and that my introspection will add to the community. I can’t say it enough: I’m so glad to be here!

    OMG!!! So not only was I super excited to see a Toledo bee (where I grew up), I went nuts when I saw that you’re getting married in the church I went to until I got married last year!!! Not sure if you actually attend Epworth or not, but I don’t think I know you since it sounds like you moved to Toledo after I went off to college. I am so so soooo excited to follow your journey and especially to see recaps from the church I know so well!

    Good Luck!
