I love being married :-)

Last Saturday my dear Matthias and I finally tied the knot at my home parish.

We went on a lovely little roadtrip honeymoon this past week and really enjoyed ourselves!

Now we're back in South Bend, here for two more years since he'll be in the MTS (theology Masters) program at Notre Dame. We just can't leave this place.

We found ourselves a cozy little bungalow very near the St Joe River not too far from campus and began moving in yesterday.

I have to laugh because one of my bridesmaids, Miss D., kept asking me in the days and hours preceding the wedding: "So! Any profound thoughts!?" Most of the time I had nothing to offer her since I was too caught up in making sure all the little details of the wedding and reception were in order - way too caught up in the practical - and unfortunately that couldn't be helped. But now that it's been a little over a week, the profound thoughts are really coming, Miss D.

Right now, I'm really just in awe of the beauty of it all. How lucky am I to be married to my best friend? How lucky am I to be married to one of the kindest, most intelligent, gentle, strong, and (can I add) goofiest and silliest people I know? I really am blessed! :-) Really, just in awe.

It is truly magnificent! I just can't wait for him to pick me up from work in a couple hours :-)

I'm glad the profundity is coming, and that married life is working out. It was amazing to be able to celebrate your special day with the two of you. Hugs and prayers!

Dear Mrs. Kaltenbach,

Congratulations and blessings! We should christen the wine glasses properly. But, I depart tomorrow for a baptism in LA and then two weeks with family in Arkansas. I return the first week of September.

God bless!

Congratulations to both of you, again. We're glad you're back, and we'd love to get together sometime soon, before the inevitable craziness of M's school year begins!
