I neeeed to start working on thank yous. It’s been crazy since the wedding – Darling Husband and I moved from Ohio to Texas, which has been extremely emotional for me (leaving my home, family and all my friends). Since Darling Husband got laid off in April and we’re still looking for work there’s lots of uncertainty. When we got down here we found out our temporary living situation was not going to work. (We were staying with DH’s sister…who had invited us to stay…but after 2 days started dropping some huge hints about how we needed to find an apartment). Since then we’ve found a sublet for the summer and Darling Husband has his first job offer…all good things. It’s just been really hard…
I seriously need to start on thank you notes though…ugh.

Well we got married tonight so were saying in a hotel… he’s asleep but even after all that my insomnia wont let up so im still here awake and tired.
Were going on our honeymoon first thing in the morning and I have been stalking facebook for guest photos (turns out theres tons). I also started thank you cards… nothing like being done with duties early. =D We had 100 guests only about 85 showed up and we got 30 cards so not a huge amount of thank yous but I just want to get them out of the way before I forget,

A year after, I’m still sending thank you’s. My hubby and I were apart for about 6-7months of our 1st year. I guess that’s why it’s taken so long to get the pics and thank yous out. Hopefully, everyone understands. (Lots of tears during this time)
Getting used to being Mrs. Shashank and living with a guy. Aye yi yi!
I’m also lurking on weddingbee.com
Furthering my career by getting another certification.

I’m on my honeymoon now! Darling Husband is sleeping in and I’m at the computer, not doing much of anything. As soon as we get home, it’s on to thank you’s, waiting for pictures to put together albums (is anyone going the online route? I was thinking of using AdoramaPix…), and preparing to move to NYC. The busyness never ends.

Well, i am fighting my post-wedding blues..complicated by a somehow old and serious sleep disorder. I am trying to get some therapy, though!!!!
First couple of days after the honeymoon i just put things in order, looking at all the wedding gifts, the guests and honeymoon photos..then felt lost but now i am a little better after a huge crisis.
Hope you are all doing fine!

@Rivendeler: sending you a hug!
I am waiting for our photos, thanks yous are done, all the gifts put away. My dress was cleaned and now I am going to start working on painting/reshelving the guest room closet…a large part of that being so I can store my dress! I am working on house projects, scrapbooking the past few years of my life and graduate school. I am stopping my full time job in August so I can focus on school, so right now I’m just trying to survive these last few weeks.
I did have some wedding blues, and it hit me hard this past weekend when so many weddings of friends were on facebook. I guess it finally hit me that I am married and my wedding is over. It will never happen again. Although I’m really busy, I’m still surprised that I feel the blues as much as I have.

- Wedding: June 2012 - Franklin Plaza
Starting a new position at my company next week that I’m sure will take up a lot of my time and training the person who is replacing me. Attempting to unpack all of our gifts, dealing with adding each other to insurance/banks, etc. and changing my name. MUST get started on thank yous! Oh and trying not to cry all the time because I am suffering from some serious post-wedding blues. UGGGGGH.

Let’s see…we had a two month time span that was absolutely crazy! We’ve spent the past few weeks just relaxing and enjoying ourselves. From mid-May to mid-July, we managed to do the following things:
- Both of us graduated with Master’s degrees from our respective universities.
- We moved Darling Husband back from living 5 hours away.
- We searched for a place to live, and found one!
- We got married…no big whoop, right? 😉
- Went on our honeymoon
- Got back into town at 1am, was at our apartment complex 8 hours later, signing our lease and moving…in 100 degree heat.
- Unpacking and setting up our place!
We’ve got our place set up. The office is still a mess…some of those boxes may not get unpacked until we move to a house (which we’re hoping to do that in a year). Darling Husband is looking for a job, and I’m getting ready to start the next school year. I’m working on thank-you notes. Darling Husband and I decided that we’d write the notes for our own portion of the guest list. I still got the short end of the stick on that one, but it’s all good.
The wedding blues sort of kicked in tonight. A friend of mine is getting married this weekend. We weren’t invited (which brings up a whole other set of emotions), but knowing she’s going through a fun weekend…it makes me miss the day! However, I think about the stress of it all, and I’m good to go :-).
Darling Husband and I are getting used to living together! We lived apart for so long, it’s taken some adapting…especially with both of being home all the time! It will be interesting to see how things go when I go back to work.
