Life is so bizarrely fascinating!

Tonight I printed out all our wedding thank you cards.All we need are our pictures and then we’re going to pick out a really nice one of the two of us and print those out and attach them to the front.I feel good having a big portion of the job taken care of.I actually really enjoy writing out cards.I even felt myself getting choked up after I read the one I wrote to the staff of the yacht we were married on!I am so sentimental these days, weddings will do that to you I guess!Jackass (that’s my new name for a certain someone) is such an a-hole that he wouldn’t do us one tiny little favour in order to help us get our pictures, which HAVE arrived but clearly are in the wrong hands.I am so mad I could spit.Spit fire in his face that is.Or worse.I am so freaking angry at him that it’s as beyond funny as it could get.I have always agreed with the notion of doing unto others as you would wish them to do unto you.And while I plan on continuing to uphold that value for the most part, it’s goin…

No wedding photos yet, so these will have to do

As the title of this posts says, we haven't got our wedding photos in the mail yet (I think our photographer lied about when he mailed them, to be honest)...I'm a little upset about it. But trying to stay positive that they'll arrive today...

In the meantime, here are some pics in no specific order. Mostly of a little walk James and I took at English Bay this past Sunday. So without further ado:








This next picture is a picture of a picture! It's James and me up at Paradise Point in St. Thomas, USVI. I wrote about these birds in my post about our honeymoon. I absolutely love this pic! It represents such great memories for me.
A little random hello from yours truly :)

This is the cutest cake topper ever that was SUPPOSED to be atop our gorgeous Cupcakes wedding cake, which we will hopefully have pictures of soon. They messed up and 'forgot' to add our cake topper to the cake, despite that I confirmed twice that they had it and were using it! BUT what can ya d…

You take the good, you take the bad

I can’t stand it when young people who could be using email don’t.I don’t understand how you could not check email for weeks on end, or ever for that matter.It just doesn’t ‘compute’ with me that people could be turned off to that whole world in the 2000s, at least young people anyway.And if you’re determined NOT to jump on the internet bandwagon, at least, for the love of gawd, answer your gawd damn phone! I also can’t stand how men (not all men but a lot of them) sit with their legs so freaking wide apart.I don’t care what they do when they’re in the privacy of their own homes or even if they’re doing this in their office chair at work or elsewhere where no one is sitting right beside them.But why do they have to do it on the bus when they’re sitting beside someone else?Bus seats aren’t entirely roomy to begin with but it’s a lot worse when you’ve got a man beside you who insists on sitting practically ‘spread eagle’ for lack of a better way of putting it.It’s really distasteful, no…

Yes, I would like some cheese with my whine, thank you.

Today is one month since James and I tied the knot.One whole month!We had our toast (the sparkling wine variety, not the crispy bread kind) and mini celebration, it wasn’t much but it was something.We were both too tired from work to do a whole lot, but that’s ok because like James said, “Spending our lives together is a constant celebration!”Despite the goodness of the day, which there were good parts, don’t get me wrong, but…I’m in a bit of a funk AndI feel so BORED.And that makes me feel so GUILTY.Because I know there are a million things I could be doing, I shouldn’t even know the meaning of the word bored.But I feel as though I do and I am bored of it!Ugh.I don’t know, I am in a bit of a lull right now.I’m very tired but I haven’t been sleeping well at all since we got back from our honeymoon.I toss and turn and have weird dreams and when I try to take naps I can never fall asleep.I’m not sure what’s causing this but I think maybe my lack of sleep is catching up on me.Feeling so …

So many things to think about

I’m trying not to let the Sunday night blues get the better of me.I’ve been working on a digital scrapbooking project and it has been SO fun! I love it.I’m still learning so I haven’t created the greatest of masterpieces yet, but I’m getting there.I know there’s so much more you can do with it than what I know how to do…but I’m having fun all the same!This weekend flew by.We enjoyed the Saturday market (and eating what we bought there!), a drink at The Kingston, a swim in the pool, a walk along the beach, Sunday brunch, and lounging like lazy bums.It was great but too short!It’s going to be a busy week.Tomorrow after work we’re celebrating one month since our wedding.We’re going to toast the evening with champagne and a bike ride (we won’t have too much champagne – we wouldn’t want to drink and ride! lol).The night will fly by and then it will be Tuesday.On Tuesday night we have to work on a project we were supposed to do today – our wedding thank you cards.Oh and hopefully tomorrow w…

I can't help it - I'm in love!

TIME flies by so fast.I can’t believe that yesterday was 4 weeks since James and I got married.We’re going to celebrate again on Monday since that’s the 27th!Any excuse to celebrate, right?I say celebrate every single day, I mean if you think about it there’s always something to be grateful for =)That being said…I am currently loving Matthew Good’s new album, Hospital Music.It’s very depressing because it’s largely about what he went through with his recent divorce.So the subject matter isn’t something I’m feeling by any means!But it’s very raw and given all I’ve read about him and his life on his blog, it’s very heartfelt and real.What I’m loving most of all is the background music, he has done some brilliant things on this album.Our wedding pictures were not in the mail yesterday =(We have to wait till Monday.I had really hoped to have them to go through this weekend.One of the reasons we need them is in order to make our thank you cards.We want to use a nice picture for the front o…

Please please please let those pictures be in the mail tomorrow

I’m chomping at the bit waiting for our wedding pictures to arrive in the mail.The suspense is killing me, or at least making me feel a little tired. Since we’ve been home from our honeymoon I’ve been back to work and haven’t had a chance to get over the jet lag.It was only a four hour time difference but it really seems to have affected me.I wake up super early in the morning and for the life of me can’t fall asleep and I start getting really tired in the early afternoon but of course don’t have time to nap.I’m tired relatively early in the evening but if I want to do anything at night I feel like I can’t go to bed too early.I look forward to this weekend when I can catch up a little on my sleep.I’ve got a slight bit of post-honeymoon blues.I’ve for the most part been able to shake it off and move on but it keeps looming.I really think I need to have a good long cry and then I will probably get over it.I’ve heard it’s normal to go through this – there is so much build up before a big…

I wish the honeymoon could have lasted forever...

OK, so I'm finally posting about our honeymoon...I have yet to resize all our pics so this is just a sampling of the pictures we took. Wedding photos to come as soon as they arrive in the mail!

Written on August 19th...

It’s going to appear as though there has been a great lull in my writing in the past month.Since getting married, we’ve been on a bit of a whirl wind of doing things, such as going on our honeymoon!I wrote in a journal daily while we were on our holiday, so it wouldn’t be as tough to re-hash everything once we got home.It’s of course an old school style pen to paper journal – it honestly has been a nice 2 week break from the computer world!And I am happy to report I nearly filled the whole entire journal that I purchased specifically for this trip.Backtracking a little bit before I start in about our holiday, I have to say that we are still basking in the glory that was our wedding day.We’ve talked to so many people who attended it and everyone seems to glow wh…
