Woah! I really dropped off the face of the earth there, didn’t I?
Well, a lot has happened. I’m married now. That’s right. I now live with Jeremy, who is now my husband, on the complete opposite end of town with no garden and a bad ass set of stainless steel cookware. It’s been a pretty nice existence, actually. It will be perfect once I have a garden.
The wedding took place on August 13 at my childhood church, the reception took place in my mom’s (formerly mine as well) back yard. It was lovely, though I find myself regretting that we went so big and conventional. If I could do it over again, it would have been small, and perhaps an elopement.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures.
Me and Elijah waiting for the ceremony to start on the church patio.

Now the main question. Is this still a single mother blog?
And it’s a plain old mother blog as well, as always.
This blog is for single moms, and everyone else who wishes to live green on the kind of time, income and energy that a single mother has to work with. Its also a blog to open everyone’s eyes to the issues of single mothers and their kids. Just because I’m not technically a single mom anymore doesn’t mean that I can’t still advocate for those issues.
I want to try to blog once a week, but I’m not making any promises. School takes up a lot of my time, house keeping, homeschooling Elijah, making items which I’m selling (coming soon, an Etsy store) for income, the Occupy movement and work for our non profit, Single Mothers To Be, takes up the rest. But I want to write. Every day there is something I want to post about, so stay tuned.
