Our first day of the honeymoon is being spent holed up in our hotel. Kaci came down with a cold the day after the wedding, and so far it's only gotten worse. From what I hear, one of my nieces, one of my nephews, and Andy are also sick, so that's lame. |
Hopefully she'll make a recovery and we'll attack London soon. But honestly, I'm content to just lounge about. We were planning on taking it easy anyways. I just wish she felt better. Things were pretty miserable when we got to our hotel at 8:30 in the morning and found out we couldn't check in until 3pm. Fortunately, we got our room around 11:30.
As for the wedding itself, it couldn't have gone better. We've been planning it ever since we got engaged, but the details of the ceremony were left to the week, and the really just the few days before. We threw it together over a few sleepless nights, and somehow it turned it to perfect ceremony for us. Big thanks to Tom Booker, who took his job as officiant very seriously, and helped us to get the ball rolling on the details.
The only thing we had planned from the very beginning was the unity volcano. Almost as soon as we got engaged we came up with the idea, and managed to keep it a secret as long as possible. I'm so glad we actually went through with it. I was afraid it would be too frivolous, but somehow it worked in the context of the rest of the ceremony.
The only thing I really regret is that I couldn't actually hang out and talk with anyone at length. There were so many people there, including people I don't see very often at all, but it was just impossible to spend more than a few minutes with any one person/group.
I'm trying to find excuses to say "my wife", but it's harder than it sounds.
Anyhow, my wife is sleeping and coughing and sniffling. Send positive thoughts, preferably in the form of fast-acting medication.
