Matters of the heart

They say time flies when you’re having fun.

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder.

And they also say you should probably create your wedding video prior to the eve of your first anniversary.

Well I say two out of three ain’t bad.

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since our wedding day. On the one hand it feels like just yesterday we were finalizing details and using all the big-ticket grandparent prayers we could for what turned out to be a beautifully sunny and warm spring day. On the other hand it seems like so much has happened over the past 365 days:

Dinner and a view. 🌅

  • We enjoyed some romantic meals and date nights
  • And we had a lot of visitors

So since I’m sure my husband is already celebrating our anniversary across the world right now in Goa, India (barring another record heat-induced power outage), I thought I’d share my better late than never look back on the day that I was blessed with the opportunity to walk through life holding this guy’s hand.

Oh hello there!

Should we try this again? You know that whole I actually login and write stuff down about what’s going on in our crazy life and you occasionally read it, offer color commentary or just secretly binge read a month’s worth of posts like I do with oh so many bloggers?

Truth is its hard to get back to blogging when you’ve left for a while. It’s like skipping the gym. So you miss one day. It’s not that big of a deal if you creep back in the next day. But skip three or more days? Well you might as well put on your sweats and start a monthly pizza and beer subscription because you aren’t leaving your couch anytime soon. Restarting is the hardest part. Which reminds me. I should really get back to the gym.

Where do you start? How do you catch people up on the last few months when more blog worthy events have occurred in a few weeks than you could have ever dreamed of in your blog life?

I’m sure you’ve heard of writers block but when one (well way more than just one) plans a wedding in just under 6 months, executes said wedding at the end of last month and then leaves directly for a honeymoon that took her and her new husband (still sounds weird) through 4 cities in Italy in less than 10 days well then you have the opposite problem. An intoxication of blog content (and red wine and Renaissance Art and bread and gelato).

Don’t get me wrong it’s a great problem to have. We’ve experienced more love and life in the past few weeks than we may for the next four years and we’re completely ok with that.

In an effort to try and circle the wagons and bring you back up to speed and any other analogy out there on life lately, I’m going to work backwards from our honeymoon to wedding, attempting to share our experiences over the past few months with you along the way.

So grab a glass of prosecco or chianti and a hunk of Tuscan bread (not that crap from Venice) and let’s go on a tour of Italy.
