Hello again, hive! I am Mrs. Teaspoon from Sydney, Australia who wed on 3rd September 2011 under stained glass windows in my husband’s high school chapel. You may remember my blue shoes and countless pictures of the beautiful Sydney Harbour Bridge.
3rd September 2011—Two years and two months ago
Enjoying the Red Sox game on our second wedding anniversary with tickets thanks to Mrs. Cloud!
The best thing that’s happened to us as a couple since we got married is:
This is actually really tough, but I would have to say travel. We are travelling so much more than we were before we were married and it is such a treat. We are a little more settled in our career and have a little more disposable income, so it does make our holidays just that little bit more enjoyable. We have also made a commitment to our health; we are both exercising a lot more and eating a far more balanced diet than we used to and it has made such a difference to our energy levels, sleep, and our mood in general.
How blogging about our wedding shaped our wedding day:
Blogging and reading other wedding blogs really helped me see new ideas that I had no idea I wanted to do. I absolutely loved my blue shoes and walking down the aisle to the Top Gun theme. It also opened up a whole new world of amazing women who are so helpful and creative.
Why I chose my icon and how my icon has become part of my identity:
I eat absolutely everything with a teaspoon, I am not even kidding. I don’t even bother to use the big spoons at home and now, thanks to the Weddingbee ornament exchange, I also have teaspoons hanging all over my Christmas tree. I have to say I don’t think it has really become part of my identity, but I still find myself smiling at ornate and beautiful teaspoons.
My favourite post I ever published on Weddingbee:
My favourite post was by far the one that was of course the hardest to write: it was the post I wrote about converting to Catholicism. It came from the heart and I had put a lot of time and thought into my decision. It was something I wanted to do, not something the Church had made me do, so I wanted to be sure to be clear for anyone considering the same. I also absolutely loved writing my recaps—they really allowed us to relive our wedding day!
Do you still blog/have you found another creative outlet for writing?
I absolutely love blogging. I have met so many wonderful people, particularly all the blogger bees! I honestly cannot believe how much I enjoy it and I still blog over at Licorice & Olives where I am working with Mrs. Brooch and Fit for a Bride as I try to lose some of the post-wedding pounds.
