Now That the Honeymoon is Over...

Hello, long lost blog! Carl and I got back from our honeymoon this afternoon and now, after barely scratching the surface of all the general post-wedding life organization that awaits us, I thought I'd stop in to give a quick recap. I've been sorting through tons and tons of pictures and plan on dedicating a mega-post to the cruise in its entirety very soon, but in the meantime here are a few of my favorite pictures:

Enjoying some poolside pina coladas

Getting ready to snorkel in Haiti

The gorgeous beach

Getting fancy on formal night

We found the Apples to Apples competition- and Carl won!

Zipline in Haiti 

Dessert, Dessert, Dessert

Carl and Karl

Quite possibly the first ever picture of me holding a fish!

We had such an awesome, awesome time. Leaving the ship this morning was a struggle; we weren't sure if we were ready to cope with the drive home and the knowledge that real life awaits us tomorrow. Who will bring us breakfast in bed, or take our picture every 5 minutes, or sing us the "Happy Honeymoon" song, or tell us that it's sippin' time? How will we survive without the 16 meals a day that we've become accustomed to? It's going to be a hard adjustment.

With all this honeymoon talk you might think that I've already forgotten about the wedding, but don't be fooled! All I can say right now is that it was beyond perfect- a day that we'll cherish forever. After a good night's sleep I'll be able to give a much more coherent rundown than I possibly could right now, so stay tuned for that.

Here's to life after the honeymoon!
