Kiss the Bride

Last week we had the joy of returning to the church where we were married–seven years ago this June–for a celebration of the wedding of Emily’s sister Sally to our new South African brother-in-law, Elrick. The wedding day was superb and packed with chatting, laughing, singing, catching-up, dancing, and eating and more eating. Since Emily […]

Congratulations Jason & Suzie Webb!


I posted previously about our trip to Huntington, WV, over the weekend of May 23 to celebrate the wedding of our friends Jason and Suzie. Yesterday I finally found the time to resize, rename, and upload our pictures and two videos. There's a video of Emily on the Videos page praying at the opening of the service (you might need to turn up the volume quite a bite to hear her as I was seated in the back). Also, you can find around 140ish new pictures in our photo gallery of the rehearsal, shower, wedding, reception as well as a video of the bride's entrance.


Congratulation, Mr. & Mrs. Webb!

Fall is For Fun

What if I told you that I was eatin' beans on toast right now? You'd think it a crazy coincidence that you're on a website called MaustsOnToast and some guy's talking about eatin' beans on toast. You can infer from the fact that I'm eating beans on toast that I'm home alone tonight while Emily's at class; otherwise we'd be having corn on the cob, french fries, and hot wings.


It's been a while since either one of us Mausts on toast have written anything on here, so let me go ahead and say that we've booked flights to come to England for Christmas and New Years. We're scheduled to leave December, 12th @ 6:00am Lord willin' and the creek don't rise. We're hoping there'll be happy Hayes's there to greet us later that evening. Can you believe the airport was gonna charge $120 to park long-term while we're gone!? We've got some friends lined up to take us. What friends they are, let me tell you: we've got to be at the airport at 4am, which means leaving our place at about 3:30am! It's a shame we couldn't leave sooner but I've got my last final exam that Tuesday night before we fly on Wednesday, the 12th. Anyways, you Angles, Jutes, Picts, and Saxons better get ready for MaustsOnTour. We need a vacation!


In other news, I've added a melange of autumnal pictures (pumpking carving, Celtic Woman, and a squirrel!) to the Photo Gallery in addition to pictures from my cousin Greg's wedding in Ohio on September 22nd.

It’s Home Again, and Home Again, America for Me

So it’s home again, and home again, America for me!
My heart is turning home again, and there I long to be,
In the land of youth and freedom beyond the ocean bars
Where the air is full of sunlight and the flag is full of stars.

Thank you, Henry Van Dyke. I couldn't have said it better myself. Although, on the other hand, it was loverly to be in Virginia Beach ov'r the weekend, witnessing not only the marriage of my cousin Joel and his bride Kirk, but also the sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.
