I just wanted to thank those of you who have sent their concerns my way. There was an extremely large Earthquake that hit Christchurch yesterday afternoon. It is the most devistation any city has ever seen in the entire country (they think). They just aren't prepared for earthquakes there. My FI is from New Zealand, and our wedding is there this upcoming Nov. Mike (my FI) has been very stressed though. Some very close family and friends live in Christchurch, but we finally heard from them late last night and every one is ok. We are fine with our up-coming "planning trip" and all the wedding planning (it is all more focused around Auckland on the North Island). It is just so terrible what this town has gone through since September (the larger quake). It breaks our hearts. We were suppose to go down there after the wedding w/ my family, so we'll see what happens now. So much of the beautiful, historical buildings (like the cathedral) have been destroyed. And the number of lives lost is still climbing (at 75 right now).
Please just keep all of the "kiwi's" in your thoughts and prayers.
