The heart ACHED without you. I miss you. I can't believe I haven't seen you since the wedding. What kind of DIL are you?? :) Awesome post. It's good to get the vomiting out early. And I can attest - he does love you and your vomit. Well, maybe not exactly LOVE your vomit, but he loves the woman behind the vomit. I think I should say vomit again. Vomit vomit vomit.

SO SO thrilled to have you in the family!! I can't believe how LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY we are! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

Sara said...

My heart is definitely fonder after your absence. It sounds like you had an awesome wedding and honeymoon. Sorry I missed the reception. I hope you post pictures on here soon!! Miss you!

Renee said...

Awesome! Congratulations on your job. I had a similar experience on my honeymoon. I was pretty tense the week before our wedding- let's just say I knew Gary really loved me after I drank a whole bottle of lemon laxative!

Congratulations on the wedding! I wish I could have come to your reception, but I was out of town. I'm sure everything was beautiful and perfect. I'd love to see pictures. Glad everything is going great for you!

Oh Anna! I have always loved your sense of humor! ;o) You were super busy!...I thought it was just the 'love bug' keeping you away & hello wedding plans!, but you had SO much going on girl!
Congrats on Graduating & getting married to your fantastic dream guy! Isn't being married the best. You can still look your worst-and you still love each other! A-mazing feeling isn't it! So sorry for the downer parts, but it wouldn't be real life I guess without them?
Looking forward to seeing where you and Dave's journey of life takes you girl! :O)
