House, Honeymoon, Travel, oh-my
I've been neglecting this site, and honestly I don't see a lot more posts coming. I want to try and update this site with the highlights maybe once a month or so.
In January Emily and I moved from our old house in Shrewsbury to a new house in Lancaster. The old house was actually a condo and we were looking for something a little more private with fewer rules. We moved to a beautiful 3 bedroom house on 8 acres of land. While we don't have any waterfont, our neighbors do have waterfront to one of the nicest lakes in Massachusetts. We live on a private road with some great neighbors. We still have some unpacking to do.
One of the reasons we haven't finished unpacking is that I've been traveling a lot for work. I've had two trips to the western half of this country so far this year and have a trip to Taiwan in less than a month. Work has been pretty hectic, but it is going very well. The company is making lots of money and have been quite generous (at lest to me).
Tomorrow Emily and I are going on our delayed honeymoon. We are both looking forward to it a lot. It's a 7 day cruise in the Caribbean. Tookie will be staying with friends and Ramona will be be visited often by one of our our nice new neighbors. Which reminds me that when we get back we'll be picking up a new kitten. I'm thinking this might just push Emily over the end and her head might explode from excitement!

First Winter Storm
We just had our first winter storm. It was crazy early this year. It's before Halloween for goodness sakes! I think we broke all the early snow fall records in the area.
We got about 8 inches. That was on the low end for our area. Places around here got 8-24 inches. Even with our 8 inches we got a lot of tree damage and most places around us lost power. The problem was trees still had their leaves and this was very heavy sticky snow so it stuck on the leaves and brought the trees down.
Here are a few pictures from around our property. It would have been a much different wedding if it was just 2 weeks later :-)
Emily and I got married on Oct 15, 2011. The ceremony was outdoors and just missed some rain showers. By the middle of the ceremony I could see some blue sky! We had tons of fun at the reception and I've been told the reception was fun for others too. I'm putting some pictures up here.
Sorry there wasn't much more of an update here, but I'm keeping busy with a bunch of other things. Emily and I are going to make a photobook of the wedding and maybe I'll post a link to that if I can get a digital version of it uploaded somewhere. That's going to be months away.
