Well, I came to the internet cafe with big dreams of posting something to my journal... but now that I've looked through hundreds of wedding photos, I think I should share those more than sharing words. The photos speak volumes- and it's annoying to type on an Italian keyboard, anyhow. òàùùàòùàòùùèèè... see?Here are the amazing photobooth pictures.Here are Rick's photos.
Jenene has a few of her stunning professional photos up on her flickr site
There are other's out there that I've seen on my iphone, but I am running out of time here! I have to (sigh) go to the Italian Rivera soon.
I will just give a quickie: Being married is wonderful. We have lots to talk about while we rest here. There is lots of change in the air, and lots of promising question marks for our future. Italy is perfect place to walk our little bridge from then until tomorrow. I can not express enough how thankful I am that we can be here. It certainly is a difficult time at home, for millions of people. Personally, things are crazy for us on so many different levels. I am really glad that we planned this trip and our wedding so long ago, before the insane things really stopped us from plan making, so that we can breathe and be alone among all the voices that reach us via email, twitter, text messages, ect.
Throwing a huge, amazing, wedding was incredibly stressful for us. Living in Seattle is also incredibly stressful, especially for me (I have so much love, yet am constantly experiencing east coast homesickness and am less than stoked about working in Seattle- frankly a big yawn after NYC). Talking it ALL over and contemplatating future decisions while looking out on Lake Como fills us with hope and promise. We are very much in love, very thankful for everything we have, and very happy. We will most certainly be ready for all the work that's required of us when we come home.
I want to take the time to thank everyone who has written me, posted pictures, or texted. I really love you all. We have an amazing group of friends and family providing a wonderful support system. I wish I had the time or the international iphone bandwith to say hello to you all personally. I am sure we'll talk lots when we get home!!
For now, I have a train to catch and 4 cities to experience in 2 weeks.
