About Us

My photo
We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.

So... I was convinced by two good collegues of mine that since I was engaged I "HAD to REGISTER!"  I was asked everyday as I came into work if I had done so until they felt the need to take matters into thier own hands and I finally was dragged to Bed Bath & Beyond yesterday afternoon to get the job done.  I'm the LAST person to ask anyone for gifts and Shaun & I would be delighted if everyone just came to the Mass & brought a dish to the reception... yet, I found myself actually noticing things we actually could really use!  I've included the registry link  on the NEW REGISTRY PAGE and will add on as I register in different places.  I'm told "this will make things easier for everyone", but still find it uncomfortable to ask for anything, because I feel I have everything I really NEED!  Thank you, though if you DO choose to support us! ...oh, and if you find similar items at nice places like Marshalls or TJ Maxx, etc... feel free to deviate from the list.  I LOVE Marshalls & TJ Maxx!!!  ....Shaun on the other hand loves Home Depot & Lowes!

With Gratitude,
Marijanna & Shaun

New "RSVP" page

I've created an RSVP page for those of you who are having trouble doing this through the links on the bottom of the blog.  You can just reply in the comment area OR send me an email at to let me know if you're coming and would like to bring something to share at our Potluck reception.  Hope to be absolutely SURROUNDED by our loved ones!

Check it out!

So I set up this blog to help those to keep "everything in one place".   At the bottom of each page is a place to R.S.V.P. for both the wedding ceremony and the reception.  If it doesn't show up for you, just send me an email at or give me a call at 508-415-5394. 

There is also a page (on the right hand side) of some of the items on our Pot Luck Reception "Recipe List".  You can click on the links below each picture and follow the recipe.  If you'd like to bring something, just let me know in the comment area (or again, just send me and email at the above address) and that way I'll know who and what is coming.  We'll  be having the reception in the large parish hall, so that you will not have to travel to a different location.

Our "Story" is on a separate page called "So this is how it happened".

I plan on putting up "pages" for those of you who are traveling as well as our "registry links" if you're feeling generous, but we really have so much of what we need, there is no obligation.  (We'd rather you just come and share our joy!)

I'll also be adding photos and other "fun stuff", so... check frequently as I'll be adding more as time goes by ...quickly!
