{girl} you should see the view from here

0582 [in ten years]

Day three... phew.




(This was the first time Mike saw me in my dress. I saw him that morning when he arrived at the church, but I wasn't dressed yet. I'm so glad we decided to see each other before the ceremony. It was great to be with him and sit and talk for a bit, to do the pictures before we were all wiped out... it made me quite happy.)


Oddly enough, today's prompt for me is the same as the writing prompt paid for by ABC on the LJ homepage. Huh.


Day 02 - Where you’d like to be in 10 years.

I have no idea. I honestly don't! I'd like to be happy, that's all. I'd like to know God more than I do now. I'd like to be with my husband. I'd like my husband to be well. I'd like him to be able to walk and work at a 9-5 job. That's my prayer, anyway. I have no idea if it will happen. Maybe God will do something better. ;)

0580 [reboot]

Hello! It's me.

Don't remember me? Natalie Hotchkiss? Well, Natalie Gail to you... that was my maiden nom de plum. But now I'm a Hotchkiss, married to Michael.

Still don't remember me?


How about a picture or two to jog your memory?







Does that help? Are you willing to forgive my lack of posting / responding / existing? I have thought of you all, and read your journals randomly throughout these past months, but really haven't been here (that is, online, with you). But that's all going to change, with silent_orange_'s inspiration. She's doing 30 days of posts under various topics, and I'm going to follow her lead! Here's the list: Collapse )


I'm also going to post at least one photo from my wedding every day. I don't have an online album up yet, and while I've been wanting to for some time... there are over 800 photos from my wedding. And they're all gorgeous. I weeded them down to 300, so that I could begin to think about putting together a scrapbook for my parents and in-laws and the Reverend's family, but I need to take a quick breather. That is, I need to not look at them for any significant length of time until at least next week.


I'm also going to try to make my entries shorter, and more punchy, because people like damnshesfeisty and silent_orange_ do this and I love reading their entries. I have a short attention span, like a squirrel. And my hair is very poofy , too. :) And that is all for now!
