I am still getting my wedding pictures together. We've had some camera/picture issues to deal with - my film camera malfunctioned, so the 3 rolls of film I took were totally blank, the person that took pictures with my digital camera during the ceremony did not really know how to use it, so most of those pictures are blurry, and the person that was assigned to be our "photographer" for the night also had a camera problems. So, I'm still rounding up pictures that other people took, editing the ones that we do have, and trying to get a decent little collection together.

Part of me wishes we had hired a professional photographer, but I have to remind myself that that is not what we wanted. I am not a fan of spending hours standing around posing with various family members and different combinations of people, while everyone else enjoys the event. I wanted to be there experiencing the wedding/party, not posing for awkward pictures the whole time (I do realize that there are many wonderful photographers out there that take beautiful, non-awkward wedding photos, but that option wasn't readily available to us in this tiny NC town). So, all of that to say that I will have more wedding pictures to show you very soon!!!

In other news, I am loving instagram right now (instagram is an iphone app that allows you to edit and share photos - it's way more fun than its sounds:). If you enjoy instagram too, follow me! You can find me by searching for my username, kristin_fm. For those of you who don't follow me, I thought it would be fun to show off some of my instagram photos from the past week. I may make this a weekly (or biweekly) feature.

We visited the pumpkin patch last weekend with friends. I LOVE going to the pumpkin patch!

I never leave the pumpkin patch without a caramel apple:)
