I’M BACK

I’m baaaack. Whew! What. A. Week. The honeymoon absolutely flew by (a week is far too short, if you ask me) – yet it feels like I’ve been gone for so much longer than just seven days. It’s a strange feeling. The wedding seems like a long time ago for some reason. Anyone know what I mean? Nonetheless, the past week has been perfect. The wedding was everything I imagined it would be. Thank you all so much for your kind words and wishes. It meant so much to me to hear from so many of you all. I took everyone’s advice and really did my best to enjoy every single second of it. It really does go by in a blur, and I am so thankful that I took the time to really soak it all in. I have so many wonderful memories from the weekend. The snapshot above is the only one I have so far, but it’s already one of my favorites. Plenty more to come…

The honeymoon was ah-mazing, too. It was our first time to Little Dix Bay, and we couldn’t have been happier that we chose it as our destination. It’s such a beautiful place (it’s located on Virgin Gorda – just a 15 minute boat ride from Tortola), and it was exactly what we needed after what seemed like a whirlwind of a month. My packing list was right on (this one-piece swimsuit is my new favorite and I lived in these sandals). We spent our days eating, drinking (basil margaritas, to be specific) and relaxing. And our nights were spent pretty much the same. The food was delicious, and the cocktails were even better. I managed to finish one book and start another. Like I said, exactly what I needed.

We came home feeling so relaxed – which is good because it’s officially back to reality. The mountain of thank-you’s and other to-do’s are calling my name…
