Still here!

Hey everyone!  I just wanted to let you know that I am still here!  I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while!

Matt and I gave ourselves some time before starting the process of picking a headstone.  We didn't want to rush it because we wanted it to be perfect.  I cannot say enough nice things about Hamilton Mill Memorial Chapel and Gardens.  They have been incredible through this whole process.  The funeral director was so patient with us while going back and forth picking the perfect marker for McKinley.  After sending us multiple sketches of different things we wanted to see, we settled on something perfect and simple!  The marker is in production now and will be placed in the next several weeks.  Pictures to come.

In my last post (you can see the original from our wedding there), I mentioned that Matt and I were going to re-create an artificial version of a flower arrangement from our wedding to place on the shepherds hook at the grave site.  After Matt mastered the art of the hot glue gun, I wanted to show you the finished product!  We are super happy with the way it turned out!  :)
