Well, we’ve reached the end of the Honeymoon photos (so sad!).
Luke and I were talking the other day about how weirdly fun Honeymoons are… All of sudden, you’re married and going on this vacation with a person you’ve never lived with before! And you have to navigate lots of things together – like value systems (ie, “I value sleeping in”, or “I value having a plan for everyday”, or “I value not eating burritos for every meal”). 😉
Some of these things you simply can’t plan for while you’re dating – you just have to enjoy the adventure and challenge of learning to do life together! We had a lot of fun learning how to communicate better and get some rest while on our Honeymoon – and we were so grateful for our families who helped us take the trip. 🙂
So although we shall have many more fun adventures and vacations together, we will never have a “Honeymoon” again – it’s a once in a lifetime trip! And we had a wonderful one.
^ Hiding out at the weird mexican restaurant we went to.
^ Rainy days! Sigh. 🙂
^ Happy pumpkin.
^ Painting pottery. Wooooooo!
^ This is the massage yurt, and it is incredibly cool! It has a wood burning stove inside and a clear tarp on the ceiling to see the rain and trees with – not to mention a very relaxing massage time!
^ Thai food lunch in Portland after we went to Mars Hill church.
We only got to spend a day in Portland, then drove back up to Seattle.
^ The infamous Stumptown. Pretty good coffee I’d say.
^ LITERALLY (in the words of Chris Traeger from Parks & Rec) the longest line ever for these donuts.
Although my love for donuts runs deep, my love for waiting in lines does not. So we never got any. Haha.
^ We finished the Honeymoon with a couple days in Seattle!
^ Blurry photo, but the Farmer’s Market was wonderful! I had a coconut danish there. AND IT WAS AMAZING.
^ Little fishies at the Seattle Aquarium. We really like going to aquariums.
^ Touching the little critters was the weirdest thing ever.
^ Freaky little jellyfish.
