Long time gone

My mother may fall off her chair when she sees that I have actually posted something on my blog. I intend to be better about this although I'm not quite ready to commit to full time blogging again. I will try.
To be fair, I have been a little distracted in the last 5 months by all kinds of fun things - including my wedding on May 12. A wedding can take all kinds of time, but Josh and I managed to make it smooth and easy. Here we are at the wedding:

It was a small wedding with only 50 people at a beautiful place in Poulsbo called Molly Ward Gardens. Exactly what we wanted.

After the wedding we jetted off to Fiji for our honeymoon. We arrived with no luggage 15 hours later, but my wonderful friend Joanne had told us to pack our bathing suits. We did and were very grateful to have them. Here is Josh after we arrived at the resort:
Very happy to have a swim suit as you can see. We spent a week there just resting and enjoying the sun and the water. I read 5 books and will find time to blog about them eventually . . . we also took a helicopter ride, a jet ski tour of the islands, had a couples massage and one of us tried to wind surf. And now, the pictures:
We took this picture using our fancy new tripod. It can cling to anything and we used it on the table at the restaurant.
Josh took this picture from the helicopter. The islands of Fiji are really beautiful and this captures the color of the water.

My absolute favorite picture of the trip - Josh's parents bought us a waterproof camera for our wedding and Josh took this picture of himself while we were snorkeling.

On the last night of the trip, there was an incredible sunset. I took this picture 5 hours before we got on a plane and came back home.

Exciting events lie ahead. We put an offer on a house 5 days before our wedding and it was accepted. Now, both of our houses are for sale and we are getting ready to move into a new place. We wanted to find a place we could live in for the next 20 years and we are really happy that we found it right away. There will be more pictures and more posts, but for now I am signing off to print pictures for my office.
