A Grand Announcement

Attention Bloggers and Blogettes:  

The following announcement was spotted on facebook earlier this afternoon.


And now I hope you'll all forgive the secrecy (like you hadn't guessed anyway...) as we had to be sure that some of our family members and friends were notified of our plans at an opportune moment.  (By which I mean, when it was too late to complain about not getting an invitation to the elopement, and too early to complain about not finding out when everyone else did.)

And, because I know you want it, here's a photo of the happy married couple.  :)


We're planning a ceremony back home with all the annoyed-but-still-happy friends and family next summer on this anniversary.  (Which, coincidentally, is the same date as our dating anniversary.  Today marks two wonderful years together.)

I hope you're all having an excellent summer.  Heaven knows I'm pleased with mine right about now.  :)

  7. Ha, as soon as I saw the heading of this post on my blogroll I said to myself, those crazy kids went and eloped. Well, congratulations. Does this mean you just stayed in Germany and aren't leaving?

  8. Trinity: No, it does not. :/ It means that after we finish all the paperwork (and there is a lot) that has to be processed before I can legally move on post, I have to go home for two to three months to pack my things and wait around for the permission slip to find its way back to Kyle from his commander. So yes, I stayed, but no, I'm not staying permanently yet.

    I kind of figured everyone would figure out what was going on when I just kind of went missing from facebook, Kentucky and the blogging world for over a month. ;)

  15. You're naughty! I had a passing thought you had done that, but I also had a passing thought you had ended up in jail. Glad it was not the latter. Congratulations and welcome to the married world!

  19. Way to go Carrie & Kyle! Personally I think elopement for the couple followed by a ceremony for family and friends is the only way to go.
