Eloped (sort of)


For once I have a very good reason for not posting for a while. The OH and I got married!

We did it on our own in the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. We did tell family and friends in advance so it technically isn't eloping, but I did it without informing readers of my blog, so for these purposes, we did elope.

The service was lovely and initmate. The mini-moon to the Napa Valley was fabulous (plenty of wine tastings and gorgeous scenery).

There is a slight downside to this story. We are now stranded in San Francisco due to this volcanic ash business. We should have left yesterday and at the moment the earliest flight available is 30th April, considerably extending the honeymoon. But I can think of worse things to happen - like actually going back to work, so we are making the best of it.

Wow, congratulations! So sorry you're stuck though, but SF a great place to be stranded.

We spent our honeymoon in San Fran and just loved it.

What a surprise! I too have disappeared from blogging for a while to change nappies, deal with whinging baby etc and this morning I had a spare 5 mins and log back in to see your post!

Many congratulations to you and OH and best wishes for your future together!

It all sounds perfect (despite the ash)...make the most of the extended stay...the boring bits of real life will catch you up again soon...
