The Bloom is Off the Rose

It's been a busy two weeks!
I know you're all wondering... yes, the wedding went beautifully.  It rained every day except for the day of the wedding, and we had the most amazing sunset that timed in with the start of the ceremony.  It all passed in a blur, and I had planned to blog during the week, but I had the worst internet reception;  even our cell phones were spotty in a lot of places.  C'est la vie, but I promise to share links and pics as they come around.

 I didn't write this last week as my hubby (isn't that weird to say, still not used to it) and I spent some time together alone here in Buffalo.  Not quite a honeymoon as I had to work this week, but a nice recovery period from last week's craziness and emotional pressures.  We will have our "real honeymoon" in about 6 weeks when we travel down to Riviera Maya just south of Playa del Carmen in Mexico.

As for the wedding which was on the 22nd of February, it was an amazing night.  Luckily, I didn't cry during the ceremony;  just two big tears while Jerry read his vows which he ACTUALLY memorized.  You have no idea how big an accomplishment that was for him, and I was so proud of him.  My Matron of Honor told me she wanted to reach around and just wipe the tears but couldn't do it without being totally obvious, or in the way.  They were the only ones, so I think I fared pretty well.

The next day we went to one of my favorite beaches near Goat Rock for our "casual pictures" and had planned to jump into the waters.  Didn't quite happen as there was a storm brewing, and we got soaked.  But, my wedding party stuck with it like troopers, and we managed to get some shots on the beach before totally freezing our butts off and all coming down with pneumonia.

As I said.  I don't have many pics now.  The photographer promises to have them up on Tuesday, and I will post them as I get them.  For now, these will do.  Also, I have started a second blog so if you're into scrapbooking or wish to critique my attempts at putting together my wedding scrapbook, feel free to stop by and do so...

Oh, and I am starting my new rotation tomorrow, OB/Gyn.  Yep, a whole month of bringing new life into the world, or at least attempting to depending on what I am allowed to do....
