In sickness, and in health

Over the last week, David and I have practiced one of out vows…caring for each other in sickness!! David is on the path to recovering from his bad cold, and I am in the thick of it. My problem is that I’m not a good napper, so just sitting put is boring! But, David is the best, bringing me juice and tissues despite him not being 100% yet. I am just glad we got sick now than closer to the wedding! With 39 days left, we are ready to recover and start tackling a few projects to get everything ready for the big day!

A lot done this past week … including our Honeymoon reservations

It was a busy week off but I think we felt like we got a lot done. And no matter how busy, it is still better than being at work so I can’t really complain too much.

One of the bigger things that we got done was our Honeymoon reservations. So our trip is booked and my bank account is a little lighter. Our travel location?

Beautiful Saint Lucia, an island country in the eastern Caribbean Sea. It met a number of the criteria that we were looking for.

  1. Relaxing tropical beaches.
  2. Beautiful scenery to take pictures of with my new camera.
  3. Things to do and see around the island when we do not want to just be lazy by the water.
  4. Out of the country.
  5. Somewhere we have never been.
  6. Good food.

We will be staying at an all inclusive Sandals resort so it should be a lot of fun. I am going to eat all of their food. I just need to make sure to get my telephoto lens before then so I can put more pics on my photo site,

We’ll try to keep the blog updated too while there so you can share the joy with us. If there is time. Maybe.

Oh yeah, and Happy New Year!

A Happy New Year

With the clock striking midnight, we are now 50 days away from our wedding day. I am sitting and enjoying my first cup of coffee of the new year, and reflecting on what is to come.

The year 2010 flew by, and brought many exciting changes. Now 2011 promises more happiness to come. I am so happy that David and I get to be married so close to the start of the year, so we can spend the majority of it as husband and wife. We have had a long road getting here, but I think it is safe to say we are both ready for this natural step in our relationship.

The next big things on our to-do list are: look at music selections, finalize flowers, put together the favors and seating cards, tweak the timeline, continue to collect RSVPs (don’t forget to send yours in!), and pack for our honeymoon. Ok, maybe I am ahead of myself on that one!

I wish you all a happy and healthy new year!

Where am I?
