Honeymoon In Maui, Hawaii

IMG_2863

Hello there my beautiful readers!

Let’s see, what’s been going on in my life lately. Hmm, I got my nails done. I’ve been eating lots of buttermilk pancakes and trying to snack on more fruits and veggies. Hmm…what else happened?

OH! I GOT MARRIED!

I guess I should have led with that. Wyatt and I are officially married, officially husband and wife and we cannot be more over the moon about it. I cannot wait to share with you all of the sweet memories of the wedding day. The second I get my hands on the wedding video as well as our beautiful photography photos I will be posting them up on here! So stay tuned.

Wyatt and I just spent our entire day today traveling back to Colorado. I will admit that I missed my bed but not that much. I wish our trip to Hawaii lasted just a little bit longer. I mean, who would ever want to leave paradise and come home to snow and yucky 30 degree weather. Anyways, we are officially unpacked and all settled in. Tomorrow is my first day back at work in two weeks. Oh reality.

Our honeymoon consisted of laying on the beach, boogie-boarding, drinking margaritas, bike riding around town and eating lots of delicious seafood. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten more in my life. From fish tacos to pork nachos to their signature piña coladas- I’m pretty sure I experienced all that the Hawaiian cuisine had to offer. Wyatt took to me to my very first Luau! It was one of our favorite memories. We had LITERALLY the best food on the planet and our host made Wyatt dance on stage in front of everyone. Everyday we watched the sun go down on the beach, I mean, nothing can get more romantic than that right?  IMG_2904

Everything was perfect. Our honeymoon was everything I had ever dreamed of. Hawaii was beyond breathtaking. I’ve never been there and I’m so happy to knock another destination off of my bucket list. We stayed at the Westin Resort and they treated us very well and they even left us champagne in our room!

Every moment of our honeymoon was incredibly special and I will never forget this trip with my husband. That’s right, I said it…HUSBAND.

We are already planning another getaway for this summer.

Let the adventures begin!

With love,

We’ve made a decision…

DRUM ROLL PLEASE! ………………………………………………………………………………………

Two separate keys. Two separate apartments. One happy girl. One happy boy. One healthy relationship. We decided that we will continue to live apart until the time is right.  I would never want to corrupt my pure and honest relationship with my best friend with regret or guilt.  I would never want to wake up every single day regretting the decision of moving in without getting married first. Both of my older brothers made the decision to move in with their girlfriends at a very young age. You can say all you want that moving in together doesn’t change the relationship at all, only if you let it… but I watched their relationships fall apart. I watched them turn into different men because of it and now their kids are left with the heart break. I DO NOT WANT THAT FOR MYSELF. Wyatt and I have been through too much together. We’ve conquered every challenge that we’ve been given. I would never want to lose all that hard work all because we chose to be selfish and sleep in the same bed every night and have lower rent. I guess I got lost in the process. I’m surrounded by people who made the other choice and I got too confused. I pushed my little girl dreams to the side and focused on how much easier it would have been to just move in together. I guess I needed to hear the words from someone else. Reading all of your individual stories really put my story into perspective. Thank you for sharing. All of you know me so well… A little too well. I cried and cried reading your posts, emails and texts because I realized that I knew the answer this whole time. I lost my way for a split second there. I’ve always known what was right for Wyatt and I, but I got caught up in the peer pressure of others. I cannot thank you all enough for the positive yet honest feedback from yesterday’s post. Some of you really, truly blew me away. I’m so happy that I shared this little piece of information with all of you because even though it may be a small decision to some, it really really helped me make what I think is the RIGHT decision for Wyatt and I at this moment in time. To be honest, Wyatt is bummed. He was really excited to move in together but he understands and is willing to wait for me. What a guy huh? I picked a good one. I feel a little saddened about the money aspect of it all. My mom and dad are helping me out at the moment. It really bothers me that I can’t afford to pay my own rent right now. I don’t want to put that burden on them. But I think they’re happy with my decision. All I want is for them to be proud of me. I have to be a role model for myself and for my nieces. I’ll tell them someday when they’re all grown up and in love that they’re uncle and I waited. It’s actually possible people.

Thank you all again for the push in the right direction. I really appreciate it. I know I’m never alone and that’s the best gift my blog has given me. Love you all so much.

One more thing….

Hey mom. You were right.

MOMMA KNOWS BEST!
