Taking A Break….

Dear Graduate Wife readers,

We hope you are having a fantastic summer, and are gearing up for another exciting school year!

We’ve had an incredible summer. Between the Olympics, visiting family back in the USA, parties with friends, and enjoying the amazing weather in Oxford (seriously, it is something to note), it’s been a season full of remarkable memories.

Due to family committments, upcoming school events, and just an overall need for a time of rest, we will be taking a break from the blog for the next three weeks. We will plan to be back the week commencing the 10th September!

We are looking forward to some of the topics we will be tackling in the Autumn, and hope they will encourage and support you. Meanwhile, if there is a topic that you’d like to see us cover, please write to us to let us know. Some of our most popular posts have come from ideas given to us by our readers. This is truly YOUR blog, as much as it is ours!

Thanks again for reading, and for sharing your own journey with us.

With love and blessings,

~Mandy and MC

And The Winner Is…..

We hope everyone enjoyed the royal wedding. It was a beautiful day here in England and the church bells tolled all over the country in celebration for the happy couple!

We have posted below the winner to our funny wedding story contest. It was shared by one of our graduate wife readers and it makes me think about the some what “absent minded professors” that many of us find ourselves married to. Haha.  Enjoy!

On our wedding day, my husband-to-be decided to escape his groomsmen for a few minutes to clear his head to think and pray. He knew he had 10 minutes before the ceremony was to begin, so he sat down in a chair to catch his breath.

20 MINUTES later (note: 10 minutes AFTER the service was to begin), my lovely husband-to-be awoke with a start. He had fallen asleep during his time of meditation.

Luckily for him, guests were still being seated, and he wasn’t missed….but seriously, who falls asleep 10 minutes before their wedding?

Happy day to everyone!

Mandy and MC
