Miss now Mrs

October 16th, 2008 at 09:54 am

A photo I snapped during our honeymoon. I'm so lucky to have places like this a little over an hour away. Looking at this view every morning made us instantly relaxed and happy.

Wow, what a wild ride the past two weeks have been. There is a lot of pressure on your wedding day to be the best day of your life, and while I can't say that with certainty until I'm much much older, it definitely turned out to be the best day of my life so far! I've never cried, laughed, danced and enjoyed myself as much as I did on that beautiful day.

The weather cooperated and gave us a beautiful, warm and sunny, Colorado autumn day. The service was gorgeous, the reception location was breathtaking, the food delicious, the cake gorgeous, the open bar stocked, and the dance floor packed till 12am! It is by far the best and most fun wedding I've been to in my life Smile

Back from our mini-honeymoon in the mountains I am now slowly settling into married life, combining our households, starting the process of changing my name (a headache for an older and independent gal like me), and starting to combine our finances. Each of those topics deserves a post in and of itself, and I will also do a post with our wedding budget numbers that might be of interest to other brides to be out there.

I am still on cloud nine!

On the job front I landed a contracting gig with my former employer and have two interviews this week. Wish me luck!

    Congrats! My big day is 2 weeks away...I am relieved your day went well. I keep having visions of vendors not showing up on my big day.

    Happy to both of you! All will be fine with the name changing (not hard but I did it 14 years ago!)

    Thanks for the kind wishes!

    gamecock43 - Don't worry, everyone will show up! Remember the wedding industry is all about a good reputation and word-of-mouth, it's in the vendors' interest to make sure you're happy. It's perfectly normal to be nervous, I was, especially the day of, but once you've got him in your sights everything falls away and you're just really happy.

    Congratulations! Wow... what a lovely place for a honeymoon. Your wedding day was very special and I enjoyed reading about it. Thanks for sharing.

    Congrats! I know what you mean about changing your name; I put it off for over a year after I got married. I procrastinated, but finally got it done because I wanted my new name on the deed to the house we were buying and on the birth certificate for my first born! Smile It really wasn't quite as bad as I'd envisioned though so that was a relief. Good luck with it all.
