My name is Ellie and my husband’s name is Mr. Handsome. Of course that’s not the name on his birth certificate, but I’m into nicknames, so I thought that would be a fun way to refer to him on my blog.
We tied the knot in June 2015. I plan to write additional posts about our wedding, but I’ll tell you right now that it was quite the production. We had a short engagement (three months), invited more than 500 guests to our wedding, and served a full meal. (Thankfully, only 300 people showed up.) We also held the reception in Mr. Handsome’s family’s backyard.
If we had not had so much help from our immediate families and extended relatives, we would have had no chance of pulling off such a big event in only three months.
After the wedding, we jetted off to Grand Cayman for a week honeymoon before moving to Tennessee. My dad graciously gave us airline points, so the only thing we paid for was a rental car and a condo.
Mr. Handsome is a dentist, and I am a journalism major. Both of us have a passion for serving others and making an impact on the world. Right now, my time is consumed by blogging, setting up our home, writing thank you notes, finding my way around our new town, and doing paperwork for my husband. When the latter three things subside, I plan to look for a part-time job that allows me to use my writing skills.
Both of us would love to have a “large” family (about 5-10 children…probably not 19) and are looking forward to seeing what God has in store for our future. Right now, we are focusing on growing closer to each other and the Lord.
We enjoy outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, and camping. Mr. Handsome is an avid fisherman, and I am currently trying to develop an appreciation for that hobby. It must be working because I spent over an hour wading in water that had to be about 60 degrees yesterday evening, and even though I didn’t catch a single fish, I still managed to enjoy myself. I’m not sure why…
So that’s us in a nutshell. We’re pretty exciting, aren’t we?
