Robert and I recently celebrated our two year wedding anniversary, which feels totally bonkers. We honestly still feel like little kids pretending to be adults most of the time. (Does this feeling ever go away?) Our summer was pretty jam-packed with random trips and wedding stuff for friends, so we didn’t do anything too crazy to celebrate. A simple dinner out at our favorite local restaurant was all we needed – we put the phones away, caught up with each other, reminisced, and got a little bit tipsy. We were supposed to hang out with friends afterwards but that didn’t happen, and we were secretly (or not so secretly) excited to just go to bed early on a Friday night (because we’re actually sixty years old).

At last! We’ve reached part two of my honeymoon recap. (Part one was all about Paris.) Since our wedding anniversary recently just passed (and therefore our honeymoon-iversary as well), we’ve been reliving those moments a lot. Plus I was also recipe-testing for the kouign amann recipe (which you’ll find below), so that made us miss our precious honeymoon days that much more, filled with French pastries, cocktails and lazy wanderings.

Well now that I’ve FINALLY covered that wedding of ours here on the blog, it’s about time for me to tell you about that honeymoon we took.
That sweet, glorious, perfect, unbelievable honeymoon. The one we took A YEAR ago. Woops. It’s not like I didn’t want to tell you about it, it’s just that I wanted to talk about the wedding first (because we need to go in order), and well … because life happens. But here we are! And don’t you worry – I’m the kind of person who takes notes during her travels so she can remember everything she ate, so I’ll be able to pull those memories out of my brain thanks to my trusty iPhone notes. Near the end of our trip we also spent some time during one of our last meals filling in the gaps of my notes to write down what we did between everything we ate (because I guess that stuff is important too). We realized that we could hardly remember what all we had done at the beginning of the trip, so we had to get it all written down before it became totally impossible to remember. It’s a good thing we did, because otherwise this post would not be nearly as thorough. [Read more…]
Since we’ve already passed our six-month wedding anniversary, it’s about time I talked about that day on here. And oh, what a day it was. Actually, it was an epic weekend that led into an epic honeymoon (and I’ll talk about that eventually, too). There’s so much I could possibly say about that day, but I’m going to start with a little wisdom for you:
Two maids of honor are better than one. Also, it helps to have a constant group text message going between you and your two maids of honor. I don’t really know how people planned weddings before there were emojis. This bride would not have survived without the crying face, head massage and poop emojis. Words just can’t express wedding stress and anxiety like an emoji can. Or several. AND, a wedding should never be planned alone, so surround yourself with special people who can make things easier for you along the way. [Read more…]
In the month of August I had a really fun bachelorette night/weekend, got married, and went on my honeymoon to France. You can’t really beat that. In case you were wondering, that’s why this place has been so silent for the past month. I’m excited for some blog posts that have been on the back burner and will hopefully be published here as soon as I can get my life at home back in order and get into the swing of things again. Although I had an amazing time in the Finger Lakes for my wedding and then in France for my honeymoon, it feels good to be back home – with my HUSBAND, working at a job I love, getting caught up on my podcast listening, blogging, and spending time in my kitchen once again. Expect some more in-depth blog posts in the future regarding our wedding and honeymoon. In the meantime, feel free to check out #robertandsarawedding and #corneliushoneymoon on Instagram to get filled in. I’ve included some snippets of our photo booth fun from the wedding below. Merci, au revoir! [Read more…]
