Aloha! Shiny-new-husband Mr. Sew and I have finally returned from the only vacation we can afford to have for the next couple years, ha! Or rephrased, we are happily married and back from an unforgettable honeymoon!
Although I’m still battling the brutal fog of international time travel, there’s a stack of pending thank you cards calling my name, and an enticing Google Reader with more than a thousand unread articles – I wanted to pop in and say thank you for all your kind words in my last post. Mr. Sew and I really enjoyed reading them together.
Unfortunately I don’t actually remember everything from the wedding since it was such a blur. Hopefully as we go through recaps together I’ll remember! I know I married Mr. Sew. That was the important part. And I was smiling all night, crooked teeth and all! And even though my dress ended up really muddy, it didn’t fall apart! Victory is ours!
Married life is still so surreal though.
Have I really been gone a month? It feels like time really did fly out the window. Mr. Sew still fiddles with the foreign piece of metal around his finger; he’s not used to the feel of a ring. I still giggle when I call him husband. We are still learning not to fight over a shared blanket. We still smile the same, sappy smile of newlyweds—like two people that know a great secret that the rest of the world does not. It takes more than a month to get used to the change, it seems.
But enough reflection! I’m off to sort through 25 gigs worth of Japan pictures. And while we wait for the wedding pictures to roll in, here’s a sampling of great shots from the ever-talented Barbara of Terra Photography. She kindly had a nice batch of teasers ready and waiting for us upon our return—it was such a great “welcome home” surprise!
Now, tell me – what’s the quickest way to get over jet lag? I feel like a zombie!
