Being a grown up

There has been a silence on my blog, but there has been a very good reason. Two weeks ago, I did the most grown up thing I have ever done.

I got married.
It was a brilliant day and I am very, very happy. 

Although there were some stressful bits and some annoying bits about being a bride, the whole day was amazing. I saw people I haven't seen in ages and to have people I love and care about under one roof was amazing. People met each other who had only ever known of each other through my ramblings. There was dancing too, as well as fish and chips and some bloody beautiful flowers. A little girl tried to steal my shoes (almost successfully!)

Although I am not one for public displays of affection, I will say this- I am incredibly lucky to have an amazing husband. We have been together for five and a half years and getting married to him is just the icing on the cake!

However, I'm not going to lie- I'm glad it's all over! The stress of planning and the fact that some people couldn't understand why we didn't want a big do meant that I was very, very busy in the early parts of this year. Taking the time to relax this weekend (we'd been to Paris on our honeymoon, so last Saturday was mad with travelling) has been lovely.

Anyway, after the brief, loved up interruption, normal service should soon resume!
