Did you miss me?

While I did miss some of you awesome bloggers, these past three weeks off have been an absolute, magical dream.

Married life is… WONDERFUL!!! After waiting seven and a half years to get married, I sometimes worried that I hyped up the idea of “marriage” too much in my mind, but both the wedding and the marriage lived up to every expectation and surpassed some.

I’ve tried to write poetry about my wedding day and maybe one day I’ll be able to post something but my words never seem to be enough. For once, words fail me and I cannot describe the joy that I felt and still feel. How can I adequately describe the way my stomach fluttered and twisted those moments leading up to the ceremony, not out of nervousness but out of excitement? How can I explain the way my eyes locked on his over the heads of our friends and family as if there was no one else there? How can I convey the way my own eyes filled with tears when I saw the way he was looking at me, looking at me like there was no other woman in the world he would rather marry? Or how do I detail the precious intimacy of laying down next to someone and waking up to their bright blue eyes the next morning…

I’ll keep working on those poems, and for now I’ll just smile at my own memories. I have hundreds of notifications to read and respond to. I will be doing my best to see, read, and respond to every one of them! Please be patient as I am still going to be getting back into the blogging groove slowly as I place my focus first and foremost on making home with my husband.

Over the next few days, you may notice different types of blog posts than I normally post. Here’s the deal guys, I’m an author and blogger; normally, my posts deal with those topics but for this next week, please have some grace with me as I dip into the “travel” side of blogging. For our honeymoon, we traveled to Kauai and there are some posts that I’m dying to write about. If those posts don’t tickle your fancy, that’s alright with me, come back next week when I dive back into “author” posts!
