1st Post as a Mrs.

So, I got married on September 13th, and I'm officially a "Mrs" (although I'm still surprised when someone calls me that!). The wedding was truly amazing - definitely one of the most fun days of my life! Even though we had a small wedding (about 40 guests) I think everyone had a fantastic time and knew each other by the end of the night. I have never felt more love than that day, and I hope it continues!

For our honeymoon we went on an Alaskan cruise and then to San Francisco for 3 days. The cruise was so nice and relaxing - exactly what we needed after the emotional rollercoaster of the wedding. We ate, drank, slept...basically caught up on all the things we were missing out on in the weeks before! We even went on a kayaking excursion, which was awesome! We were supposed to do a helicopter tour and hike of a glacier, but it was too foggy :( That was the one big disappointment of our trip. A couple other fun facts about our cruise: we bought two paintings, there were WAY too many old people, and we spent way too much money!

San Francisco was absolutely amazing! I could definitely picture us living there - it's such a vibrant and exciting atmosphere, and didn't feel overly "American", which is always nice. We did a tour of Alcatraz and a bus tour of the city. We did a lot of walking as well, which was tough with all those hills and all that cruise food in our bellies.

After being away for 2.5 weeks, it was nice to get back home to the cats and our own bed. Unfortunately that means back to work too, but we won't talk about that! We went shopping today with the generous gifts our guests gave and bought most of what was left on our registery. I also bought a Mac today, since my awful Dell finally died, and I'm loving every minute of it!

So, with that, I will end my first "Mrs." post - keep visiting!
