Date: January 27, 2010

Most excited about: For me it was all about the ceremony. It’s the most amazing moment of my life so far. That and at the end of the night, when we were finally alone together and realized that it was finally done!

6 months later, we’re still in our “honey-year” (we’re travelling a lot this year), and we’re looking forward to starting our family, but holding off until our travel have happened because they’re too physical for me to be pregnant.
