Be On The Lookout!

That’s right. I, Rachael Rodimel, have decided that it is time I start blogging again. We have been married for almost a year, and I cannot believe how fast the time has gone. I have decided that I need to get back into updating this thing so I will always have it to look back on. So much has happened in such a short year! We have had our first nephew, traveled, started our own business, made fun purchases, and got our own pets. I have not decided yet, I may do a couple posts about big events that have already passed this year or I may just start from here. Either way, be on the lookout for the Rodimel’s to be back in action!! :)

Our First Christmas Card

Well, it is that time of year! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, spending lots of time with friends and family! We came home on Sunday afternoon, and our tree is already put together and decorated. I could not wait any longer! Now, the rest of the house is another story… there is still work to be done. I am trying to decide on a Christmas card and get them ordered. Who knew this could be so tough?! I mean, the first Rodimel Christmas card is a big deal around here. We have already decided that we will order through Shutterfly. Their cards are adorable, and they have so many to choose from. Plus, we have ordered photo books through them in the past and have loved them. (They are awesome about sending out specials, so get on their e-mail list!) Anyways, I think I like this one best. I love the simplicity of it, along with the truth of the greeting. We just got pictures taken this past weekend, so once we see them we will be able to decide! So, be looking for the Rodimel’s first Christmas card as a married couple in your mailbox soon. In the meantime, take time to slow down and enjoy your holiday season. The shopping, wrapping, planning, cooking, and traveling too often takes away from the season. We are all blessed for so many different reasons, but above all else, because our Savior was sent to save us from sin.

Merry Christmas!! — Yes, I know it is not even December yet but I can’t help it!

P.S. If you aren’t familiar with Shutterfly or are looking for Christmas cards, they have fabulous ones!

Catching Up… Again.

Our First PlaceWhen we started this blog, we had high expectations. Once this blog got going, we I blamed the lack of commitment on being busy with school and wedding plans. When summer began, I blamed my continued lack of devotion on wedding plans. Well, spring semester, summer vacation and work, wedding plans, the wedding, the honeymoon, and moving into our apartment have all come and gone. I believe my husband, poor guy, sees this lacking, sparsely updated blog as a dilemma that needs to be solved. Guess what? That’s just in time for the school year to begin again. {Wow, where does the time go?} So, you will soon be seeing a (more…)

We’re Back!

hmoon_193First of all, thank you all SO much for making our wedding day so special! We both agree that we felt extremely loved and blessed all day long. Thank you for making it a perfect day loaded with lots of fun!

Okay, those of you who don’t know, I did not know where we were going on our honeymoon. Zach’s grandparents gave us the honeymoon as our wedding gift, and Zach planned the whole thing. It was a complete surprise for me! We ended up going to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. We stayed at The Ridge at Playa Grande Resort – if you want you can check it out here. We were supposed to fly out super early on Sunday morning, but we missed our flight. {We’re pretty good, huh?} So, we got the next flight to Atlanta and ended up spending the night in Atlanta and got to Cabo on Monday afternoon. It worked out just fine though, because we were exhausted all day Sunday anyways. Once we got to the resort, we were (more…)
