A Momentous Occasion

Yay, it's Thursday! That means it's time for Real Life again. This weeks theme was "Momentous Occasion". We were asked to look back in our photo archives and find pictures of a moment in our lives that was truly, well, momentous. Now, because I'm a rebel, I chose two (well, really kinda three, but two of them go hand in hand, so I like to think of them as one).
The first (and second) involve Rome. Though it was not a single occasion, I feel that that time in my life has had a huge impact on who I am. So, without further ado (I just really love the word "ado"), I give you, my first look at the Roman Forum on my very first day in Rome...



And... our last gelato on our last day...




Now... My second (err... third?), of course, my wedding day. First, my dad walking me down the aisle...




... and Josh and me taking communion...




... and our first kiss as man and wife...




So there you have it! My Real Life and a couple moments which have defined it :)

Oh I loved Italy too. It's by far my favorite country I've been to (at least so far!)

What a beautiful bride! Love the red hibiscus(I'm guessing) and those pictures! *swoons a little*

Rome is one of my favorite cities in the world. You feel the history creep into your soul as you're walking through it. Ohhhh, and the gelato is amazing! What I wouldn't give for a nutella gelato.

I LOVE how your wedding pictures are kind of sepia colored with the flower in your hair such a bright red. Very cool.

So envious of your trip to Italy.

My husband is allergic to culture so I just have to find someone to tag along with me.

One day....

Your wedding looks lovely!
