Hi there friends, long time no blog, I know.
The last couple of months have been such an emotional roller coaster, I decided it was probably best to step away from the blogosphere until I had a full handle on this major life change.
But I’m back and ready to blog. I plan on covering all the wedding details, as soon as I have pictures, therefore you’re getting the honeymoon first.
The details, like state, town, lodging, you know… small details, were all unbeknownst to me until we were boarding our flight. All I knew was we would be going somewhere cold for a week. I loved the idea of our honeymoon being completely planned by My Someone, it was a lot less stress for me. But what I’m most impressed about is the large amount of our family and friends that knew, and still managed to keep it a secret. Props to y’all.
So where was this mystery vacation? None other than the absolutely breathtaking, Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Now before I start blowing up and finishing this post with photo overload, I think I should mention something else that was neat about our honeymoon… From the time the plane touched down in Jackson, Monday Night, until we arrived back in the airport, Saturday afternoon, we were almost completely unplugged.
What does “unplugged” mean?
Well basically it means relearning how to use these:
And results in a whole lot of this:
For five days we never opened a computer, and only used our phones the one time we needed to call and make a reservation. That meant no email, no social media, no games, no texts and no answering phone calls. A completely unplugged honeymoon would’ve meant no technology at all, but My Someone ended up sick with a fever one entire day of our trip… So that day just involved couch cuddling and marathon Law & Order SVU watching.
The past few months have been such a constant go-go-go, constantly on our phones, me dealing with the wedding, him with the farm, both of us trying 24/7 to make everyone else happy. We NEEDED the beginning of our marriage to be just about the two of us. As it should be, before we were forced back to the whirlwind that is reality.
So enough about the technology-lessness of the trip, how exactly did we occupy our time in Teton County. Well for starters, we stayed in this A-M-A-Z-I-N-G place…With breathtaking views like this…Where the mule deer paid me no mind…We took a sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge…We explored downtown Jackson, and drank gourmet hot chocolate…And then, “Stop looking at me swaaann”…We discovered sometimes if you take a ski lift up a few thousand feet, you might find the most inexpensive meal of the entire trip…And then you can travel a few more thousand feet up in elevation and be cold as Hell for a photo op…In my effort to photograph a moose, I discovered how close I could get to make my new husband extremely nervous…We drank wine by the fire…And I photo stalked My Someone…
While snowshoeing, we left our mark in the snow…Our snowshoes allowed us to walk on top of a lot of snow…Did I mention A LOT of snow?
And then at the end of the week, we were both really sad to leave honeymoon wonderland to fly back to the ranks of reality…
Until next time!
