Looking Back on the 6th...Our Honeymoon

Lots of things happening around here today! Our kids have no school- because of election day??? yup!- so I'm hoping to head off early to cast my VOTE, stop by the grocery store, pick up a movie at the Red Box for a little surprise lunch date with the boys. Lucky Isabelle gets to hang out with Grandma in her kindergarten class all afternoon, which will give me a couple hours to paint. Score!

Did I mention new floors are coming tomorrow? Oh no? Well, new floors are being installed tomorrow!  =) We're still deciding on flooring for the entry, hall and dining room. We're also keeping our option open for the kitchen, though it really looks like we'll simply stick it out with the existing tile- I hired someone to deep clean them so fingers crossed they'll look brand spankin' new better! We'll know for sure by tomorrow afternoon I suppose.

Anyhoo. Today is the 6th of the month, so I'm taking a little look back out our earlier married days. I was going to share some pics from our honeymoon last month but I got a little sidetracked and ended up posting about a camping trip. I'll just go with it.  :)

Bill and I had just changed out of our respective dresses and tux into The Going Away Outfit. I still remember that wide-collared, French-cuffed white blouse, and I'd made the skirt the week before. Go me, ha! Clearly it had started to sprinkle, hence the umbrella, and our family and friends were blowing bubbles everywhere. In all honestly, it was a huge blur...I was just so excited I never let go of Bill's hand {or arm}once!

Outside the bed and breakfast in the White Mountains. I still look so excited and nervous, and YOUNG!
Isn't the inn so chalet-like and full of character? It was gorgeous! Princess Diana had either just died, or the funeral was on that day, but I remember every single news channel that night broadcasting something about Diana. Seems like such a long time ago!

Then we were off to Quebec City for the remainder of the week. The city was beautiful! So was the weather! I'm so bummed that we don't have any honeymoon pictures of us together- we just kept taking turns all throughout the city. Here is my handsome new husband!

I had just begun the school year and was afraid to ask for time off- as I said I was very young- so we stayed pretty close to home. I kind of wish we'd flown off to some all-inclusive beach resort...someday!

I have no idea what these dogs (or maybe wolves?) were called, but they were some big deal, let me tell you! We fondly referred to them as The Poopers- don't they just look like they're ready to...well, get to business?

Okay, after this lovely trip down memory lane, now I'm off for a busy day. Go vote!

LOL at the pooping wolves. ;o)

If Princess Diana had just died, you must have gotten married in what, 1997? Is that right? I could google it, but I'm too lazy. Either way, the point is...YOU LOOK THE SAME AS YOU DID IN 1997! Have you aged at all? I, on the other hand, look every bit of my 29 years if not older. :o(

And congrats on your new floors going in! That's a big deal! I hope they do a good job and you love them!
