CAR RIDE/RENTAL SHARE

We have lots of friends coming from lots of places. We thought we’d set up a little place for those lookin’ to hitch rides or share a rental car. Post below!

US

Taylor and Blair don’t quite know what we can tell our families and closest friends about ourselves that they don’t already know…we met in Montreat, NC long ago & have been consistently fond of each other ever since. We are very excited for chance to celebrate our union with the people we love the most.  Here are some ways we are similar and different:

We both enjoy:
Writing out our entire names
Children’s books
Presbyterians (most days)
Good fresh food
Addie Patterson Hartman (our puppy)
Montreat
Playing board and card games
Playing air instruments to songs while on long car rides

We have different opinions on:
Cinnamon
The value of sporting events
The best Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor (B = Phish Food; T = Oatmeal Cookie Crunch)
Stand-up comedy
Online map systems (Google v. MapQuest)

In all seriousness, we have been tremendous blessings to each other’s lives and we hope to become reflections of all of our blessings to all of God’s people on God’s green Earth. We are very much looking forward to our lives together.

Now enjoy some photos (more to come)
