Hi there. Remember me? Your Real Life Bride-To-Be? Well it has been a few months now and I am happy to report that I am well-rested, happy and … married! I’ve missed writing you and feel that there is so much to catch up on: the ceremony, vows, dress, flowers, video, my handsome groom and did I mention the dress!?? (which is up for sale on Pre-Owned Wedding Dresses.com) (link to: http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/dresses/37635/Vera-Wang-Fawn-Size-2.html)

I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing our wedding day was. I realized today that I started writing for Beth’s blog on 11/22/2010 (link to post here: http://www.bethhelmstetterblog.com/2010/11/brand-spankin-new-real-life-bride-week-1.html) at the time not knowing just how unbelievably fast the year would fly. I feel so much wiser, confident and safe in my family and marriage. Life is so good! It’s been an incredible journey and one that I am very thankful for having documented right here on this blog.

I will tell you all about our wedding day once we have more pictures to share. In fact, I have a special letter waiting to post for all of you brides out there. Until then, I thought I’d share with you some of our honeymoon photos. We ended up traveling to Hong Kong, Thailand and Bali and it was so incredible!!! If you’re planning on traveling there in the future please reach out because I have several amazing recommendations. Sure we wanted to adopt an elephant or two and bring home a baby tiger, but I must say after 18 days of traveling we were happy to see our pups and eat a cheeseburger.

I will be sure to give you a full wedding recap very soon. I just didn’t want all of you readers out there to forget about me. Your real life….Wife!
