    I have completely neglected this board over the last year, but I plan to make an effort to start coming back more often! Those of you who know me know that I was one of the people seriously addicted to AtoZ for a really long time!

    I finished up my first year teaching 5th grade Readers' and Writers' workshop on June 20th. I'm happy to say my contract was renewed and for the first summer since 2004, I'm not job searching!

    Then, on June 27th, I got married! After 6 years of dating, and 2 years of being engaged, we're finally married and I couldn't be happier.

    Now, I'm sitting home, and have my first summer off since I was 15. I started my graduate program, and will be doing some curriculum writing over the next few weeks, but I still have a lot more time on my hands than I've had in a while so I plan to be back on here more. :)

    Hi Beth! I saw one of your archived posts the other day and I was wondering what you were up to...

    Congratulations on your marriage and your non-job hunt!

    Thanks, everyone! :)

    It looks like I'm going to be insanely busy with my graduate course (16 week course condensed into 5 weeks) but I'm definitely going to make the effort to start coming back to this site more often!

    Welcome back, Beth! Glad to hear that job-hunting isn't on your "To-Do" list this summer.
    Congratulations on our marriage.

    Congratulations on your marriage and first year of school. Congratulations to your hubby, too. How wonderful that you don't have to search this summer (for a job, I mean, not a husband!).

    Olá Beth!
    I remember when you told us that you were engaged and showed us a picture of your engagement ring.
    Congratulations on your wedding and career! All the best for you!

    Parabéns e muitas felicidades!

    The advice that comes to mind first of all is not to stress about the weather (unless your ceremony/reception is outside). We were having a really hot, humid week with chances of thunderstorms everyday. I was so worried about it, and people kept telling me, "Don't worry. The weather won't matter" etc. I kept thinking, "Of course the weather matters!" because we wanted to take our pictures outdoors. Well, it was cloudy all day and then started raining right after our ceremony when it was time to take our pictures. I was a little bummed, but honestly, I didn't care. It didn't even matter. Everything went extremely well, and I'm still hearing about what a good time people had. :)

    Good to hear. It's nice to hear how everyone else liked it. People still tell us that, especially about FIL how nice & friendly he was...which is extremely nice to hear since he passed a few years back. The wedding/reception I am in isn't outside, but like you would like to have outdoor pix. I can say that when hubby & I got married we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day sunny, just enough breeze, warm!!!

    Ok...how many times have you been asked the baby question?!? LOL!!!:eek::lol::unsure:

    After dating for 6 years, we've been getting the baby question for a long time already! I think I've made it VERY clear that we are in no hurry. Teaching middle school is fabulous birth control. haha
