a wedding and one (very short) mini-moon later...
Well, I'm back to my normal life now, and I'm going to admit that I feel a little bit of a let down. I mean we've been working on planning a wedding over the last five months or so and now it is all over and I don't know what to do with myself. The day was beautiful and joyous and ended all too quickly. The weather was overcast with some spots of sunshine and in the low 70s. My dress was gorgeous (made by a good friend and colleague using pieces from my mother's 1968 wedding gown) and the flowers were bright and fun (the mister wore an air plant and the groomsmen thistles; I had fiddlehead ferns in my bouquet for goodness sake!).
After the marathon wedding weekend where we had friends and family from across the country surrounding us with lots of love, we took a little trip to the mountains of Virginia for a mini-moon. Just two nights, but good food and some nice time for relaxing were just what the doctor ordered. And boy, it was pretty romantic with the leaves turning and the bed so comfy. But now it's back to work...and laundry...and unpacking.
