Sweet Like Honey

my photoshopping skills put to work

If you couldn't tell from yesterdays post I am regretting the decision not to honeymoon. We still will of course, but at the point in which we do it will be more of a long vacation. While that possibility is exciting I am concerned the true meaning will be slightly lost. That we won't have that important time of reflection to gain clarity into the magnitude of what we have just done. The new chapter we have entered. That was until I looked up the definition.

honeymoon
noun

Etymology: from the idea that the first month of marriage is the sweetest

1 : a period of harmony immediately following marriage

And so it appears, completely unbeknownst to us, we are honeymooning at this very moment! A moon's cycle worth of sticky sweet honey goodness. Today, if it weren't for work, I would be enjoying our honeymoon on a stretch of grass somewhere local, maybe Laguna, with my new husband. Some rose'. And if I were very very rich, with this.....

When I got married, we eloped in Vegas (I probably already told you that) and our "honeymoon" wasn't until about 2 months later. So it was more like a vacation than a honeymoon - I can relate.

And that picnic set? It's amazing. As long as hubby is the one carrying it.
