Back On The Grid

Sorry for the blog blackout but The Pilot and I finally took our much delayed honeymoon. After 7 months of wedded bliss, we finally headed out of this place! We spent 6 days without cell phones, without TV, without emails and blogs. We spent 6 entire days with just each other and it was glorious! The island of St. Lucia wasn't too bad either. ;)

While I catch up on the 200+ backlog of emails, the blogging may take a back seat but I'll try to work on the honeymoon pictures as well as my triathlon training updates (which are admittedly sporadic but still happening).

For anyone who honeymoons at a beach location, it is required that you take a picture of your feet. I'm not sure why, but if you peruse Facebook and blogs, there is ALWAYS a picture of the honeymooners feet. And who am I to buck tradition? It's a good thing I got a pedicure right before we left of this wouldn't be nearly as cute. I can't speak for my husband's feet. He's probably already rolling his eyes that I'm posting this.
And as much as I love my husband, I wouldn't normally try to cuddle with him when it's 90 degrees with 100% humidity out....but I AM cuddling with him in the photo because as you can see, I'm trying to keep my pasty white legs out of the sun so that I don't burst into flames. I am one of few people who can spend 6 days in the West Indies and come back the exact same shade of porcelain as when I left wintery Ohio. It's a talent.


  1. What a wonderful place to have a honeymoon! Glad you had a great time!

  2. I've heard that about you vampires! Glad to see you keep the foot photo tradition going too........

  3. Aww, I'm glad you had such a great honeymoon. I bet you were able to appreciate it even more being a few months removed from the wedding chaos. I've heard wonderufl things about St. Lucia, I'm dying to get there myself!

  4. I'm glad you got to enjoy your honeymoon! We loved ours in Costa Rica :)

  5. I'm glad you finally got to enjoy a honeymoon! I can't wait to see the pictures!
