WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN?

13 August 2017



*Stares at blank screen for what feels like an eternity*

Over the last week or so I've been wanting to get back into writing and recapping everything that's happened over the last couple of months so bad! Soooo bad! But, every time I'd look at my laptop sitting on my coffee table I'd catch myself asking the exact same question...

Where do I even begin?

Seriously, you guys! This has been the craziest couple of months ever! I've said it before, but blogging is always hard to get back into once you've stepped away for a little while. But, when you add having some of the biggest events of your life to share on top of that, well, it makes for quite the hard comeback. 

So then, where do I actually begin? How do I get into sharing all of the details, both big and small, that's happened recently? I have absolutely no clue, but I do know that I want to start, so apparently it's starting right now - at 8:00pm on a Sunday night.

The big things that's happened recently? Well, that's easy to share! I got married, went on a three week honeymoon, and then immediately went to Alberta for work for two and a half weeks. Thankfully I'm back home now, doing what I'd normally be doing at 8:00pm on a Sunday night...sitting on my couch in my pyjamas! Up until a few days ago, I had spent a total of four nights at my house since June 26th. Four! I've definitely been craving some normalcy for a while now, and I'm so glad to finally be getting some this week. It's funny how we often get so sick of routine, only to miss it so much when we're away from it.




After getting married and then being away on our honeymoon, I was not at all prepared for the phone call that I'd have to leave to fly across the country for work for a few weeks just a day after returning home. My suitcase wasn't even unpacked, I didn't have time to even mess up my house, and Charley was just getting used to the idea of having her mom home again. I was still on a high from all of the wedding festivities, and the last thing I wanted to do was hop on a plane to go and work double the amount of hours that I normally would home, all while being secluded from everyone. I just wanted to get settled back into our home, and continue to ride the post wedding and honeymoon high with any family and friends that would listen to me!

But, it's certainly hard to complain when your work was amazing enough to give you four weeks off for your wedding and honeymoon! I knew how lucky I was for that, so off I went with another suitcase in tow! And it actually wasn't so bad. I loved the work that I was doing and I loved being super busy! I also got to spend one night with Todd after he drove two hours to see his new wife...that'd be me people!!!! (did I mention he had to leave for work just a day after getting home?), and on my travels back to Newfoundland I got to spend a night with my sister and her family in Toronto due to airport delays.




So as you can tell, I'm quite happy to be home! I will say though that now that everything has finally returned back to normal, our wedding seems sooo far away and feels very in the past. We had the best month of our lives, and it's been strange not talking much about it with everyone. I know that sounds silly, but it's true! You know how when you have an amazing night out with your friends and the next day (or the next time you see each other) all you guys do is chat about how much fun it was? Well, that! I missed that! I've already told some of my friends to be prepared for lots of wedding talk when we see each other again...regardless if it's months from now. This girl here wants to go back down memory lane!!




It's been seven weeks since our wedding (crazzzzzy...make no wonder why it feels so far away!), but I still can't believe that I have a husband. And that I'm a WIFE!! I swear whenever I say that I can't help but laugh as I remember the episode of Friends where Monica's upset as she tells Chandler she'll never be a bride again, just someones wife!!

But honestly, it still hasn't gotten old or any less exciting (or strange) calling Todd my husband and, in fact, we still say those words (or 'hubby' / 'wifey') to each other more than you can imagine. You know, a few people have asked us if anything has changed since we've gotten married or if it feels any different, and while we know that a 12 year relationship couldn't change much because of one day, we both say that somehow it does feel a little different. It's hard to explain, but it feels pretty awesome to know we made such a big commitment to each other. It's also an amazing feeling to have made that commitment and then celebrate it with all of your family and friends. Weddings are fun, you guys! Very, very fun! Why we didn't do this any sooner, I'll never know!! Ha!

But unfortunately I think that's where I'll have to stop for tonight. Since I'm now back to my normal routine, that routine comes with a 10pm bedtime!! But remember all of those smaller details I talked about earlier? Well, thankfully I have this place here because I have sooooo many of them that I want to share! The wedding shower, the bachelor and bachelortte parties, the rehearsal night, the honeymoon, and of course the big day. It's all coming (hopefully) soon! Now you guys have also been prepared....

Until next time.
