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.
- The best thing about being married is enjoying every day with your best friend—it is like the best sleepover ever and it never ends.
- The worst thing about being married is expectation. We have been married for two years and a lot of friends, family, and coworkers expect us to have children, but it isn’t really something that is even on our radar just now.
- The best thing we registered for was a KitchenAid mixer—that thing is amazing!
- The worst thing we registered for was our slow cooker—it is great now, but we have had to return it three times.
- When we fight, we make up by getting nekkid. Too much information?
- The biggest challenge we’ve faced since getting married has been going down to one car. It isn’t too bad, but it does require a lot of planning sometimes and a lot of consideration of the other person.
- The way my SO and I reconnect when we both get busy is champagne and dinner on the balcony and no TV for the night.
- When I have a disagreement with my in laws, we resolve it by discussing it like adults. Actually I don’t really know because we haven’t really had any disagreements?
- If we could do our wedding all over again, the one thing we’d change is telling the photographer to hurry up—I was 45 minutes late for the church because of him, and I am never late. It was terrible and my husband still teases me about it.
- In five years, I hope that we are still making each other laugh so hard that we snort a little bit.
