it is good to be back ... well maybe

{mas and i in front of the snaefellsjokull glacier, did i mention that everyone should go to iceland?}

after a most glorious wedding (sorry i have NO pictures yet but i will post some soon) and an absolutely fantastical honeymoon i am back at home and at work. i have a lot of catch up to do today as i was pretty horrible with email the entire time i was gone, our house is looking worse than it did the day the movers dumped our stuff everywhere and all of the food that is still (regretfully) in the house has tuned a funny shade of green or white or brown or black. it is just going to be one of those days that npr lingers in the background while i run around like a crazy person. so much fun.

oh and on a completely different subject, i must say that i am absolutely thrilled that we made it back in time for the election! both mas and i took advantage of early voting (thank goodness for that) but it would have been awfully sad to have missed the celebrations. i suppose it would, of course, have been better if we were in chicago for the evening but one can't have everything. hooray obama!


  1. I hope you're enjoying married life so far! Congratulations :)

  2. Hooooooray! It wasn't the same without you.

  3. Hello!!! I have had a thoroughly unproductive night because of your wonderfully entertaining blog. I can't believe I have already read all the way back to October 2008 - how embarrassing! What started out as a cursory scan for wedding inspirations has turned into an entire night of me pulling images off your blog into my "wedding colors" folder :) My fiance now thinks I'm thoroughly crazy.

    And now I read that you went to Iceland for your honeymoon - that sounds so fab as my fiance and I are getting married in the Snaefellsnes Peninsula next June!! Did you 2 come across a Hotel Budir when you were honeymooning? We've never been but Mark (who is British) has always wanted to go to Iceland and so we instead of just vacationing there, we're going to get married there - much more dramatic this way :)

    Anyways - just wanted to say thanks for collecting such beautiful things and ideas in one place - had a great time reading your blog tonight!
