Reason 86: There is no such thing as the honeymoon being over :)

Monday, July 5, 2010.

That is a strange reason, I know.  But as far in the distance as I can see, this feeling of bliss will never end.

This is my temple.  No battle.  :-)

The wedding was incredible.

The sealing in the St. George LDS Temple was beautiful and breathtaking.  It was an overwhelming experience to be surrounded by family and good friends and to feel so close to heaven.  I was so struck by the power of the experience, the joy that came from this covenant, and the brand new adventure that has opened up before us.

This is after the sealing as we walked out of the temple.  Look at those cute bridesmaids and groomsmen all lined up!  That was really fun to see them first.  They all looked amazing.  Thanks to Andrew, Aaron, Thomas, Luke, Hannah, Sarah, Julia, and Lola :)

Guess what?  I have the most amazing husband in the universe.  My heart is so full.

The reception was B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!  My mom, granny, and pops planned the whole thing and it was like a dream.  Bright colors, vaulted ceilings, laughter, happiness, music, family, friends, flowers, dancing, dresses- it was absolutely perfect.  Every last sunflower, ribbon, picture, bow, and tablecloth was in the exact location to make that evening spectacular.

The Centerpieces.  Romantic.  Quaint.  Simple.  Grandma Linda- You rock.

My athletic training girls!  It meant SO MUCH to me that they all came down.  I have cool friends.

And the honeymoon?  Oh. My. Gosh. It was a 7 day cruise down the Mexican Riviera.  I was in TEARS when we pulled up to the ship (I am so dense, I was sure we were on our way to Catalina or Long Beach). It was such an amazing week- totally disconnected from the real world, food until it was coming out of our finger tips, laziness, sun, ocean, beaches, zip lines, more food, dancing, and LOTS of relaxing.

The wedding, reception, and cruise are going to occupy a lot of this blog for the next little while.  Forgive me.  Seeing as how this is my most consistent form of journaling (although I promise I will write my wedding down on paper), I am going to definitely write about all of the cool things that happened.  Anyone with pictures from the wedding, please email them to me :).

Life is soooooo good.  SO good. SO SO SO good.  Times a billion.  And beyond.
