The Here And Now

We're back. We're still a little tired. But we're happy. So amazingly happy. Trust me people would puke if they had to be around us. Marriage has made us giddy. Everything is the same but totally different too. Same job, house, routine. But we're married. He is my husband and I am his wife. I love that. We can hardly believe our luck.
The wedding was perfect. Absolutely beautiful. So very us. There are pictures to share once we get them back from the lab. We spent Saturday out on a boat and snorkeling a reef and strolling a pristine beach. No better way to spend the day before the wedding. On Sunday we waited for the sun to start setting and all walked down together to the beach. We had a ceremony that we helped the officiant write and then we said the vows we wrote for each other. We did not share our secret ring inscriptions until later at the resort when we were alone. We had a fabulous meal all together and then our friends dropped us at the resort. They upgraded our room to a marble suite right on the water. A basket with champagne, fruit and cheese greeted us. When I went to chill the champagne I found another bottle with a card from Erika, Jay and Sammy. The next day we spent three hours in the spa. We ate dinner at the resort and danced our first dance right by our table to a singer in the lounge area.
