The groom got a new job! Due to cut backs at his previous company, he had been laid off and has been looking for work and slowly returning to school over the last 15 months. This, obviously, put a huge kink in our wedding plans. However, we focused on planning and idea gathering. Unfortunately, we had pretty much run out of cost free things to do and put the wedding on the back burner for months.

A couple months ago a fellow bandmate informed Josh of an opening at the company he works for. Josh submitted a resume for two positions, was given a great recommendation from his bandmate and did great in his interviews. We found out just before New Years that he'd been accepted for the position of delivery driver! He didn't start until this week, but the mere fact that we'll have that other income has been a huge weight off of our shoulders. Similarly, we've seen many of our friends loose jobs over the past two years as the economy bottomed out. I'm happy to report that nearly all of those individuals have found new jobs. Things are looking up for us and our fellow Americans.

It will take a couple months to get back on our feet, but we're both eager to renew our wedding activities. Thanks to everyone that passed along job ads and hugs during our hardest time!

    What's our story?

    Tarah works for Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services and has been living in Sacramento for nearly all of her earthly years. She lead a mostly uneventful life, though she always had a love of written, visual and performance art, holds an interest in politics and still can't resist animals.  Josh is a former punk rock musician who is back in college, volunteers with the Sacramento SPCA and blogs about the video gaming industry at 1Up.Com(Electronic Gaming Monthly). He was born in California and traveled around, mostly growing up in  Reno, NV and Southern Oregon.  With his band, he toured the U.S., Canada, and Europe. After the disolvement of his band and a couple years of contemplation, the groom moved from Portland, OR, down to sunny Sacramento.  A month later, the bride found his platonic ad on Craigslist. He was looking for locals who could show him around town, and Tarah knew just the right places to go. The two started a wonderful friendship that blossomed into the unbreakable relationship they enjoy today.  They share strong values for equality amongst people, humane treatment for animals, using diplomacy before voilence, and respectful care of the environment through personal responsibilty and accountability.
