Our Unconventional Honeymoon

After a very long hiatus, I am back!  I’ve been VERY busy this year.  I got married the end of May, and if wedding planning wasn’t time consuming enough, Nick’s movie premiered this spring and showed at 3 different film festivals.  I have been traveling, I just haven’t found the time to blog about it…
