Minnesota Photos & Wedding Favorites









There are so many beautiful photos from my cousin's wedding. Not only photos from the actual wedding, but also photos that I took of our family throughout the five days I was there. It's very rare that we all get to be in one place at once, and since everyone is so scattered, it's a very emotional time when we all have to say goodbye. Some of my cousin's visited from Cyprus for the wedding and it was so great being with everyone, we really all love each other so much, and we have so many memories together growing up and spending summers at my Grandmother's tiny village. 

It's hard being away sometimes, and I try not to think about it because I usually feel aching in my heart when I start to miss everyone. I guess the important thing is to enjoy each other when we can, and value the time we do have together. Getting together for weddings, birthdays, christenings or even sad occasions gives everyone a chance to realize how lucky we are to have such a beautiful and loving family...no matter how many miles away, we'll always share that bond that will carry us through our days being apart.

  2. Maria! It is such a small world! I know your cousin! My uncle was best friends with Dave, Thesbo's late husband. Thesbo is my cousin Justin's Godmother. I remember asking you on Instagram where the wedding was (which was in my hometown) but I had no idea I knew the bride! Crazy. Next time you talk to Thesbo tell her Tim Carroll's niece says hi!

    1. So that's really awesome you know my Aunt Thespo. Such a small world. I asked my Mom and she definitely knows your Uncle Tom, and she said she's been to his house before. So crazy! Glad we could make the connection :)

  12. I've been in Europe for the past week and it's so crazy trying to catch up on all the blogs I follow! But I'm so glad I took the time to go back through your last several posts. The photos from the wedding look awesome and you're right, time apart isn't easy, but knowing that those people love you and you love them will get you through. Been there :) Also, I always love seeing videos on blogs cause it gives us a new insight to the author and it feels more personal. It was cool to see you talk about style and the dress and stuff. Anyways, now that I've written a novel of a comment... Hopefully I'll be able to keep up a little better during the second half of my trip!
