Looking Upward

Today is Saturday, and for the months of January and February that means Upward basketball. Both Aaron and Jacob play. They are in the same age group, but on different teams. Last week they played each other. After team pictures and the games, we will be heading downtown to check on the progress of our loft. We are so excited to take our first step toward fully living our art, and today we make it official by signing the lease. We are definitely looking upward!

Oh and for some weekend blog fun... Following up on a post from last Friday. I was tagged by the author of Caffienated Frenzy! Here are the rules:
Link to the person who tagged you. See above.
Post the rules in your blog. Here they are.
Write seven random things about yourself. I will write 7 random things about us {Me and Michael}.
1.) We met online.
2.) I drove an hour so we could meet in person at Bob's Dairyland on Michael's lunch break.
3.) We were married less than 7 months later.
4.) He proposed on Flat Rock at sunset.
5.) We got married on the Summer Solstice at sunset.
6.) We were married on the Blue Ridge Parkway surrounded by friends, family, and gorgeous mountains.
7.) We are living our "happily ever after."
Tag seven people at the end of your post and link to them.
Let each person know they were tagged. DONE!

I've been tagged! Thank you, I will have to think of seven random things... your loft sounds amazing, you'll have to show us pictures when you can
: )

The Basics

Michael and Talina Ripper met online and when they met in person, they knew they had found something special, a once in a lifetime love. Michael obtained BFAs in both Wood Design and Ceramics from ECU. Talina has always been a creative/artistic spirit, but has her BSN from ETSU and still works as an RN. Talina has three sons, Seth (17), Aaron (8), and Jacob (7). Michael and Talina have a son together, Quinn, who is 17 months. They are getting settled in their downtown loft just around the corner from Michael's studio and the gallery. Their dream of living their art is coming true!
