Greetings from Minneapolis. We’ve taken a bit of a break from blogging for the past couple of weeks, but we’re back on the horse for the time being.
It’s hard to believe that August is here and that we are well over half-way through the Fifty Nifty. We’ve photographed 23 out of our 38 weddings for the year and have close to $43,000 accounted for She Dances’ safe home for victims of human trafficking. A humungous thank you is continually in order to all of you who have helped, housed, fed, or encouraged us throughout this journey. It’s been far more meaningful, humbling, and at times difficult, than either of us could have ever imagined but we are overall simply grateful. Last week the Wisconsin State Journal did a nice write-up on the Fifty Nifty that you can check out here. My favorite line is that we appeared, “happy but a bit dazed”. Thanks to Doug Moe for his support and excellent work.
Now that we’re entering the proverbial home stretch and it’s clear that we won’t reach our goal of 50 weddings or hitting all 50 states, we still have our sights set on the most important goal of raising $50,000 for victims of human trafficking. As I mentioned before, we’re getting close and would love to meet and even exceed the mark. If you’d like to help out and contribute, you can donate by clicking here. And if you have no idea what we’re talking about, check out the video shot by the incredibly talented crew at Capture Studios below:
After our wedding in Belle Plaine, MN this weekend, we start making our way out East for a string of weddings in Pennsylvania, Vermont, Boston, and New York with a couple of jaunts to Vail and San Francisco in between.
Before we sign off, I’ll leave you with this mean-mugging photo of our nephew, niece and me amidst a rather serious nerf battle yesterday.
Until next time, know that someone at paper antler loves you.
