It all went down on Wednesday January 25, smack bang in the middle of a heatwave. Great, right?
But, despite the plus-40 degree weather (that’s more than 104 degrees Fahrenheit for any US readers) we had a really great day. We were surrounded by so much love, both at the wedding and virtually, through Facebook and Twitter.
It was fun, casual, silly and a little bit nerdish – just like us!
But I won’t bore you with details, so instead here are a few non-professional pics from the day:
Thank you all for your patience these past couple of weeks. The wedding was fantastic, and now that it’s over I’m looking forward to writing and blogging a whole lot more!

ps, Mr Bee and I shared our vows over here yesterday!
This is what my life is right now – LISTS!
I know, I haven’t posted in a week and a half. I have been slowly writing my post about how I will organise my time to make time for writing, but I keep running out of daylight hours to actually take photos of my nifty tools (and in a small, dark house, natural light is a BIG help.
All of these lists and the running out of daylight come down to one thing: In 9 days I am GETTING MARRIED! Yep, we’re taking the plunge, making it official, walking the plank (wait, is that not a metaphor for marriage? My mistake!) etc.
I fully intended to keep posting in the few weeks between New Year’s Eve and The Wedding, but that just hasn’t happened. I’m too distracted by all these lists (and attempting to check things off them) to focus properly on my writing in addition to my day job (apparently they like it when I actually work – go figure!).
So I promise that after next week I will be back, blogging and sharing stories and other such exciting things. But for now I think I need to admit defeat, and remember that even though this is a nice, simple, stress-free wedding, it is still a wedding and needs a bit of my time and attention right now.
Of course, I’ll also have some wedding pictures to share – I know how much everyone loves those!
So for now, I shall bid you a fond “see you later”, and leave you with these couple of tidbits:
Remember when the year 2000 was the future? Yeah, me neither! What? I’m only 24!
But seriously, I don’t know if it’s because I’m making my merry way into this whole adulthood thing or if the rotation of the earth is off (and none of the earth’s scientists have noticed), but it seems like years just come and go faster and faster.
I’m going to blame the scientists 😉
Seriously though, 2011 has been a good year, but I’m looking forward to 2012 being an even better one!
First and foremost, I’m getting married! (in 25 days – eep!)
Then of course, I am into my second year of running this website, and have lots of things planned for what I want to do with it. Exciting!
And finally, my soon-to-be husband and I will be doing a whole lot of work on our backyard this year, which we will be sharing on a separate blog, www.fearninckxrising.com (it’s pronounced like phoenix, even though it may not look like it!).
Next week I’ll be back here sharing some of my organising tools to make sure I can make more time for writing this year, and how to get the most out of that writing time.
I am also working on a bunch of stories that I can’t wait to finish up and share with you all!
So stick around, because 2012 is going to be a big one here at Squeaky Shoe Stories!
My grandpa Joe gives me the biggest hugs, with his long, hairy arms.
His hugs are warmer than a bear hug, and tighter than a cobra.
My grandpa Joe gives me the scratchiest kisses, with all his bristly whiskers.
His kisses are scratchier than a cat’s tongue, but a lot nicer too!
My grandpa Joe has the gravelliest voice, when he says “Hello darling!”.
His voice is deeper than the ocean, and growlier than a lion!
My grandpa Joe has the biggest heart in the whole wide world.
It’s taller than a giraffe, and wider than a whale, and in it there is room for grandma, for daddy and mummy, my aunty, my brother and me.
I love my grandpa Joe, with his big hugs and scratchy kisses, his gravelly voice and big heart.
And I will have him in my heart forever and ever, because I know he will always carry me in his.
