The End of the 'Moon
Our perfect honeymoon week is almost over, and I can't believe it! What an amazing few weeks we've had. Of course there are many more photos, and fun moments that Steve and I experienced in our first week as Mr. and Mrs. Trudelle. I'm excited to share. :)
But for now, I'm sitting in our little light-filled dining room, gazing outside the window at the sun-drenched trees. It's incredibly quiet in this Phinney neighborhood. Someone is barbecuing nearby, and it smells delicious.
There are remnants of green and blue all over our house and Crate & Barrel boxes stacked in the kitchen. We still have loads to bring from each of our houses, and bags to unpack with things that we probably don't have the space for. There's a lot to do.
But I am savoring these days. We keep remembering funny/inspiring/beautiful moments from our wedding day, with the help of Steve's dad, who has started a running list. Photos are popping up on facebook. ;) It's so much fun to set up a home together, and we're shopping around for a bbq and a breakfast nook table for the kitchen. In fact, I'm supposed to be researching these purchases right now. Steve went back to his house to load up his car, and let me stay to do the fun job. He's the best.
I have to take a second to gush about how happy I am to have married the guy you see above. This photo was taken at the top of Whistler, after he picked up his second plate of food at the BBQ buffet (highly recommended by the way). I love this guy.
Steve is already such an amazing husband. He told me the other night that he wants to always get better at being a husband, and I'm inspired to take on that same challenge. I know there will be hard times, and it's my prayer that we can remember that commitment and the joy we feel now, when those times do come. That joy is really hard to explain, but I'm sure that everyone who is married can remember it. It's a deep feeling in your heart, a love for another person, that you know is going to serve you and stick by you...that you've just commited to for life! It's pretty cool. And even though our honeymoon flew by, there's a lot of fun still to come. I can't wait!
