Afterthoughts

I’m sure that by now you’ve heard the fantastic news – we’ve made it to the third and final phase of the wedding threesome contest!

In order to learn about our what our phase III quest will entail, we’ve been charged by our contest-masters, Jay from Captivate Bridal, Rick from Rick Denham Photography and Mary from with one final post – the afterthoughts.

Our final task is to let you all know just what it’s been like to keep up this blog for the past few weeks.

We’re not going to lie – the task was not an easy one. For most university students (as many of you will know), April happens to be the busiest time of year. With Jackson’s final exams and projects and Loretta’s piles and piles of final exams and projects to mark, keeping up a regular blog, that was actually interesting was a very tall order indeed.

Luckily, we had a little help from some of our friends. On some days when those piles of paperwork were just too much for us, these really amazing people were there to help shoulder some of the weight. They were able to add some spice to our blog with their take on our relationship and on us as individuals – even if, at times, it was a tad embarrassing.

While it’s true that we are very busy people and this blog was time consuming, it gave us an opportunity to spend time together and grow as a couple. This blog was done by equal contributions from both of us. That’s right, for the most part, we wrote every post together – it wasn’t just Jackson or Loretta taking on the role of ‘author.’ Lots of couples do many things together, but how many couples do you know that can say that they’ve actually written together? Keeping this blog together has given us the opportunity to reflect on many great moments we’ve shared together and it’s provided even more validation for our love for one another.

We love lists, and so we thought it would be an appropriate way to cap off our phase II blog with a top ten list of our favourite bloggy-style threesome contest moments.

Top Ten Bloggy Style Threesome Moments

  1. Awkward first date moments
  2. Jackson’s uncanny ability to capture Loretta on camera while she’s being silly
  3. Our ability to bring bad luck to the home team of every sporting event
  4. An amazing road-trip rendition of Kim Mitchell’s Patio Lanterns
  5. Introducing you all to our cute pup, Wernicke (and how we came up with his name!)
  6. Our secret key to long-distance love (the post-it note!)
  7. Telling you all about how Jackson popped ‘the question’
  8. Giving you a sneak peek into our wedding planning
  9. How many (gullible) people actually believed Brian’s interpretation of the story of how we first met. Apparently we were a little too subtle on how truthful that ‘interpretation’ was.
  10. Sharing with the world just how oh-so-good-looking our wedding party is. We really capitalized on photos that were easily found on Facebook!
