Whew boy, I need a vacation!
Thanks everyone for the very sweet words and wishes regarding my recent wedding. It means a lot to me!
The wedding was just beautiful. Mostly it went off well. The best glitch was very memorable though and frankly, it was almost good that it happened. The ceremony is in the atrium of the hotel, very open and full of plants and looks like it it is outdoors. They like for the bride to make a dramatic appearance and come down the glass elevator for everyone to see before walking down the aisle. So I was up on the 4th floor, peering through the glass to see what was happening and waiting for the cue to go. The hotel staff hit 1, and said they would run down the stairs and meet me at the bottom. So I get in, heart beating a mile a minute, "here we go" i say to myself. And guess what? The elevator went UP! Guess there are 5 floors here and someone goofed! The crowd laughed and I lauged and it was great comic relief for me, and definitely made a great moment to discuss. The rabbi honed right in and incorporated it into the beautiful service.
The flowers were amazing and exeeded my dreams. We had a wonderful time and I hated for it to end.
We had a couple days back at work before leaving that Friday for our Mediterranean Cruise. We left from Barcelona, did 2 stops in France and 3 in Italy. It was just beautiful and we saw things you an only imagine from a postcard. The down side was that we were absolutely exhausted the whole trip. We usually had to get up at 6 and dinner finished at 10:30, so they were very long days. We did not ever get to relax. The last day was at sea, and unfortunately we had terrible weather with a lot of motion and rocking, so it was not a relaxing end. Plus I got a nasty cold which really ran me down. It took a good week of being back to feel like myself, we had a hard time getting over the jet lag.
Our house is still a bit disorganized and we're getting back to reality..
I am looking forward to posting here more often as well, and miss you all. When are we going to get together again?
