Honeymoon Highlight

-this is not about what you think it could be about, get your minds out of the gutter people-

Finishing up our thank you cards from the wedding (holy moly, and are we thankful!!!) reminded me of one of the sweetest memories that Drew and I have shared so far, and I wanted to share it with you all!

this is actually not the memory, just a photo stolen from the Culbertsons, a wedding sneak peek if you will...

After we got to our hotel, completely exhausted, the first thing we did was sit down on our bed and read our wedding cards.

Before I go getting all sentimental.... instead of just blowing through cards, we sorted them into piles based on who they were addressed to: Paige and Drew, Drew and Paige, The Fremders, Mr. and Mrs. Fremder, etc.....it was a fun game. Yeah we're weirdos, I know. 

Anyway, we sat on the bed and read our cards out loud to each other, and this simple action has proven to be one of the most powerful emotional experiences we have had together. It seems cheesy when you're trying to pick a card for someone, but we want you to know that we read every word (printed and written), every quote, every verse, every bit of advice, and genuinely took it to heart.

Thats when the "this is it, we're REALLY married!" moment happened. All these people from all parts of your life, together and individually, are all in one place at one time and there is only one reason they are there: YOU. To say that the experience is overwhelming would be an understatement. 

We enjoyed every single card. We got to tell each other who "our" guests were and what role they played in our lives. Your messages made us beam, laugh, and cry. Altogether we feel so loved and supported!!! 

So to everyone who has blessed us in any way, AGAIN, we want to thank you, and we can never thank you enough!

God has surely given us the best people to journey through life with, and our wedding was the perfect reminder to reminisce of and be thankful for each and every one of you!

Hello, my name is...

I feel like I need to reintroduce myself...


My name is Mrs. Fremder (say, whaaaaa?) and I live in Virginia.

Dinner a few nights before our wedding...probably looking at a picture of ourselves

-The last time we talked I was Ms. Brown and I lived in Texas....and England...and then kind of no where-

I'm currently a flute practicing, meal cooking housewife.

Ok, you're right, I didn't really cook this. But I have been cooking!!
But seriously, look how handsome my husband is.

-The last time we talked I was a student, studying the flute in England with Trevor Wye-

(Ok, so I'm watching Modern Family right now and this is taking me forever....)

I'm going to miss living in Texas a lot.
I'm going to miss being really close to my family and friends.
I'm seriously going to miss Baylor and my Baylor music family.


I get to live in beautiful Virginia.
I'm married to the man of my dreams.
I have a family of friends here that have welcomed me with open arms.

And I'm pretty sure this is what happily ever after looks like.
