Bookends for 2007

Happy New Year, Everybody!

Hubs and I had a great time in Texas. We got to celebrate Christmas with family and good friends. The day after Christmas, we flew back to California and went to a conference in San Diego where Hubs worked for a few days. On New Year's Eve day, we drove back to LA, and on the way back we made one important stop in La Jolla. We had a lot of fun revisiting the place where we got engaged on New Year's Day of 2007! It seemed fitting to end the year right where it began.

2007 has been a great year for us--one full of so many blessings!

I hope you all have a wonderful 2008! God bless you!

Just engaged on January 1, 2007:

Now happily married! Revisiting the place of our engagement on December 31, 2007:

Happy New Year from us to you!


Starshine and Hubs

Happy New Year! Very cool idea, to bookend the year like that. You two are totally romantic. :) I remember good advice I got once, which was to celebrate as much as possible in life, no matter what anyone else thinks...which is why after almost 15 years of marriage, we still celebrate the anniversary of our first date. I mean, why not? :)

Love the concept of bookends for a year...gives the year such perspective! wow...so much can happen...:*)

Both of you look absolutely radiant in these pictures (both before and after)...but I must say Ms. Starshine that you are rocking an AWESOME booty in the newest pictures...must be all of that newlywed "exercise"..:*)

I wish nothing but health, happiness and fulfillment to both you and the Hubby in 2008 and Beyond!

What a cute idea. The before and after photos, especially thougth the kissing shadows were clever. Loved the wedding video but I watched it without sound so I assume you said, "i do." You were truly a beautiful bride.

Hi Starshine! Btw, I love your hair shorter. It was beautiful long, but it looks so cute short. xo
