Two Saturdays ago, Mr. W and I tied the knot. It was one of the best days I’ve ever had. When I tell you I have NO complaints, I really don’t. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Even our spotty Michigan weather was on its best behavior. Our wedding day was the start of our new life together, and if that day is any inclination of the rest of our lives, we should be in for a pretty good one. (Sorry to be corny.)

On that Monday following our wedding, we were off to our honeymoon in Aruba, and I’m going into a slight daze about how badly I wish I was there instead of sitting at my desk at work.
Layover at O’Hare, drinks at 8:00 AM? Why not!
(Excuse the no makeup face.)
We spent seven days and six nights in all inclusive heaven. We stayed at the all-inclusive Occidental Resort in Palm Beach. The weather in Aruba is perfect! If it rains, it stops in about 10 seconds and is clear and sunny again. The water is unbelievably clear and beautiful.

One thing I’m a little bummed about now is that we were in such “relax mode,” we failed to take a lot of pictures. But basically a recap of how we spent our days was like this: wake up, go to the beach, drink, after the sun on the beach gets to be too much, migrate to our hotel’s pool to play bingo, drank, nap, go to dinner, go to a club or bar, and repeat it the next day. Although we did spice it up two days and went on a pirate cruise on one, and went snorkeling on another. We figured we will have plenty of time to take other trips and do more adventurous things, but for that week we just wanted some R&R.
Relaxing on the beach
By the end of the week, we were starting to miss our friends and family. Not to mention the sun in Aruba had drained us. So on Friday and Saturday we stayed in our room and switched between lounging in the bed and on our room’s balcony/patio all day, only leaving at night when the sun went down, like vampires.

Did anyone else have a relaxing honeymoon? Where did you go?
