It’s Here! It’s Here!

We have been checking the mail for the last two years anxiously awaiting, not giving up hope, and blaming the poor mailman!  Here is an example of our evening conversations, after checking the mail, over this long awaited time…

Dean: Did it arrive Amy?

Amy:  Not today, honey…

Dean: Do you think they’ll really publish it?

Amy:  I hope so, but not sure…

Dean: Should you check on it?

Amy:  I have been…

Dean: Ok, we probably won’t recognize ourselves once it does get published, because we’ll be so old!

Amy:  Speak for yourself!  I plan on looking the same as I did on our wedding day 20 years from now!  {well, that’s what I thought before I had a baby :) }

Dean: Of course honey :)

Drum roll…trumpets please…announcement…it’s here!  Two years in the making, or two years of Amy following up so we don’t get lost in the wedding paper shuffle, is our debut in Melbourne Bride Destination!  We were hoping for a tiny spot in the corner, but to our surprise, got four pages!!  It’s an Aussie magazine, so tough to get your hands on, since they don’t mail out of Australia.  But, so cool to know we are in a magazine!  Probably my first and last time in a magazine, so I’m going to dwell in it for a while.  Here it is…take a peek…

Looking at these pictures and reading the write-up brings back so many fun and happy memories with family and friends.  I feel like I could do it all over again…

I can’t believe we have been married for two years already.  How time flies, especially with a 14 month old.  And, your calculations are correct.  Maddie blessed us shortly after we were married.  Celebrating our one year anniversary, at home, with our three week old daughter could not have made the first year of marriage more memorable.  She is truly the icing on the cake, no wedding pun intended!

Is there something you hold onto, or have, that reminds you of a special time?  I would love to hear about it.

Until next ride,

    You and Dean are Aussie Celebs! The pics in the magazine are great and now you have something to add to your wedding album/scrapbook! Congrats:)

      Haha I’m sure it is a good thing we’re famous in Aussie territory, would hate to be getting mobbed! :)

    How fun, Amy and Dean!! Wow, it must have been so much fun looking through the magazine and “re-living” your special day. Congrats, you guys look like movie stars!! :)

    • Amy Fechner says:

      Thanks Dionne! Funny how it really did feel like we were reliving that time. It has been so long, I had forgotten what I told the magazine about the wedding! Very fun to read.

    How exciting! You should be “family models” for future magazines! You two make a stunning couple! Beautiful pictures, and the best wedding I have ever attended!! Love and miss you!

    • Amy Fechner says:

      Haha Deb you are way way too kind! Thanks for the sweet complement. Dean and I had a good time too ;)

    That is so cool, Amy! You and Dean had such a beautiful wedding. I always thought your pictures looked like they were from a magazine. I can’t believe I’m in the magazine too. How can I get a copy?

    • Amy Fechner says:

      I know, isn’t it! The magazine is only released in Australia, unfortunately. We got a copy only because we were featured in it. I’ll email you a couple pictures from the magazine. xoxo
