Oh, hi there.

Remember when I told you that I went to a small private school from Kindergarten through 12th grade? And there were like 5 boys in my class of 14? 


One of my good friends, Jared, just so happens to be one of those 5 boys, and tonight he texted me a GEM of a memory. A gem I tell you!

Ladies and gentlemen....I give you this TOP SECRET note written by yours truly, circa 2000.

Sooooo basically, the 14 year old in me was feeling pretty doomed for an eternal life of Singledom because:
  • A) Jared was taken by Cassie, obvi. Plus, we couldn't date until high school or college otherwise it'd just be weird.
  • B) Scott already liked me, so he clearly couldn't again.
  • C) Kris was gross.
  • D) Ben & Harold? I couldn't even go there, apparently.
  • E) Gian was too "Girly" and "Sensitive". #gross #justkidding
  • F) Stephen was weird.
  • G) Chad was just too mean.

But I will say two things:
  • 1) It's a good thing Jared never became a murderer, because it's pretty cool we can laugh about our #privateschoolproblems 15 years later
  • 2) It's a DARN good thing poor, destitute, hermit Michelle found herself a life partner. Things were looking pretty scarce there.

Oh, memories. Thanks for the laugh, Jared! (I say this as if he's reading right now...)

Precious Michelle and Honorable Berner

Welp, we did it!

On July 3rd, 2015, four years exactly from the day I met him, I became a Mrs. to my Mr.

A Mrs. Verner Dixon III to be exact. 

Look at these young bucks, trying to be so cool...

If those cool cats could have known that 4 years later they'd both be blubbering like little babies under a canopy on the beach saying, "I Do...."

Well. MY 24 year old self would have been ecstatic, I'm sure. His 29 year old self? Might have scared him off a bit. 

Anyway, I could go on and on about how wonderfully magical our time in Kauai was with 40 of our closest friends and family (because it really was spectacular). And I could post 8000 pictures of me in my wedding dress (actually, I can't because I haven't gotten them back from the photographer yet), but I think I'd rather leave you with this:


Good ol' Fasha and his Korean-speaking wife, Princess Sophia.

You see where they're standing up there? That was the designated location for our HIRED HAWAIIAN DUO to be performing for our cocktail hour.

But instead, Fasha and Princess S had a little surprise up their sleeve, unbeknownst to me.

As I'm in the midst of taking post-ceremony photos (which, wait a minute, isn't Fasha supposed to be there?), I hear this Korean woman singing loudly in the background and lo and behold....instead of the Hawaiian Duo, there is a Korean Duo. A Korean duo in the form of my father and his wife.

As Princess Sophia belted out words I couldn't understand, my Dad would then translate each sentence for her as he played on his "borrowed" guitar.

It went a little something like this:

"JibberJabber Meeeeeeeeshelllll and Bernerrrrrrr jibberjabber."

Followed by my dad:

"Michelle, you are so precious and Verner, you are so honorable. May Jesus bless you."

And so on and so forth.

This is how my friends reacted to this surprise performance:

And then there was me:

And then we moved on to many, many drinks and lots and lots of dancing. And all was well.

It was perfect. Simply perfect. 

Even with surprise performances. (Don't even get me started on his speech that started out with a joke involving a heart murmer and old man.... <----?)
