Don't be fooled by the plastic sacks...

Those veggies aren't from a store. That's Ned's handiwork from the garden, just waiting to be cooked up when I get to Vicksburg this weekend. We're having a bit of trouble with the okra (it grows faster than we can eat it), but otherwise things are good.

Party in the Delta

Ned and I had a great time this weekend, thanks to the hospitality in his hometown of Cleveland. The fabulous food -- ice cold mojitos, grilled pimento cheese sandwiches, roasted pork loin -- was surpassed only by the good company. Thanks to all for helping us celebrate!

Summertime Flowers

Our garden has been great fun this summer. The tomatoes are delicious, but my favorite part of the garden is the zinnia bed. Enjoy!

Lasseters Invade Vicksburg

This past weekend, my parents ventured to town to see the new house, tour the battlefield, and generally check on things to see that Ned wasn't dragging their daughter off to live in some horrible place. Fortunately, 1005 National Street met their approval. Highlights of the weekend included a tour of Rev. Dennis's place and lunch at the Hot Dog Man (which is a place, not a man, but cool all the same). The 'rents (Melanie and David) are pictured above, at one of the 8 zillion cannons you'll find in our new hometown.

The breakdown happened sooner than I expected...

Dearest Wife-to-Be,

This is pressure. Witty banter and insightfult commentary, EVERYDAY! How ever will we keep our faithful public engrossed?

But at least I never have to listen to you make fun of me for blogging again! Hooza!

Now I need to work. I have a job you know.


Welcome, Ned (and others)

I predict that when Ned realizes that I've added a blog to our Web site, after years of mocking them, he'll laugh hysterically and perhaps begin paperwork to have me committed. But there's a method to my madness.

Since I'm a Mac girl and I designed our Web page on my laptop, I'm the only one who can edit it. Ned's a Windows guy (y'all could guess that, right?)--and thus he's frozen out of the fun (and downright silly obsession) that has become our wedding Web site. But, with this blog (accessible from any computer) now Ned can contribute--thoughts, ideas, praise for me, photos of the garden, whatever... And, importantly, our content will be more interesting for you frequent visitors. So I'm doing this for you, and for him.

Look for his posts, just as soon as I give him the password.
