You knew that Mathis proposed on my birthday in June, right? What you didn’t know is that we went to the courthouse and got married on Wednesday, July 29th! So easy and stress-free.
My wonderful mother, Ilse, flew up from L.A. and two of Mathis’ buddies, Joe and Steve, were there as witnesses, too. The judge did a beautiful job with the vows.
We followed the 5pm ceremony with a dinner at Jak’s Grill in Issaquah and then: done!
Without sounding presumptuous, Mathis and I want to stress something:
ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY NO GIFTS (of any kind) !!!

I had my last chemo treatment on Tuesday, August 4, and we celebrated with the nurses and oncologist. Next steps are scans on August 17th, then surgery, and then radiation for 6 weeks. Almost done – I can see the end. I know I crushed this stupid cancer!
I can’t thank my friends and family enough for being AMAZING. My family has been by my side every step of the way. And my wonderful husband, Mathis, has truly been dedicated to my breast cancer battle 24/7; reducing his travel for work, gently scolding me when I’m overdoing it, and holding me when the nighttime blues hit. Thank you, my love.
