Natalie & Jeff Update

Well, we are still in the process of getting things closed down, and working our buns off!! We are enjoying the fall season and looking forward to seeing a few more guests as our season comes to an end. Married life is going wonderful, with Natalie practicing her cooking skills and Jeff eating way too much of it, all the good and bad!
Also, for any of you wondering about more wedding pictures, feel free to check out under the wedding tab, and northwoods wedding to see some professional photojournalistic pics that our phototgrapher picked to post on his website!! Enjoy~

P.S. (We had to use a picture of us from last summer---Ha, Ha, we are looking very scuzzy with all the hard work that has been going on lately. We promise some more recent pictures soon!)

"Shake It" by Metro Station

Nolan Roth, one of our most favorite guests introduced Jeff & I to the song "Shake It" by Metro Station, which was even played at our wedding!! As we were watching Dancing with the Stars tonight, the dancers danced to it. Jeff & were dancing around and turned the t.v. way up! All we kept saying was how we wished Nolan & the Roth's were here to dance with us!!!! Darn, Darn~ We love you guys and miss you all so much.
