The Best Day Ever

I really don’t know if it’s going to be possible to express all of my emotions in this post, because the past 10 days have been the absolute best 10 days of my whole life. Except for yesterday when I had to go back to work, but we won’t count that.

I’m a married lady! Thomas and I were married on Sunday, September 6th in Winston-Salem, NC and it was just perfect. I’ll do a full detailed recap when I get all of my pictures back, but here are a few highlights.

It felt like the entire day happened in 5 minutes. I cried A LOT of happy tears and we drank and ate and danced like crazy. I have a million pictures from the weekend, but here is one really special one from Saturday night. This is my mom’s wedding dress transformed that I wore to my rehearsal!


On Monday morning we were off to Mexico for our honeymoon! We stayed at the Valentin Imperial Maya in Riviera Maya. I’ll do a more detailed post about the whole week tomorrow, but I wanted to share a few pics and some exciting news.

My birthday was on the 10th, and I decided to attempt a run as a birthday present to myself. As most of you know I’ve been dealing with IT band syndrome for about 5 weeks now. Well, I got through 3 miles completely pain free. I was so happy I could cry. My longest run before that was about 1.5 miles and would end in pain. Since then I’ve gotten in a few more 3 milers and will be slowly adding more mileage as I ease back into training. Here are a few honeymoon highlights!

Many more to come! Please be patient with me as I get caught up on all of your lives!! I feel like I’ve missed so much in just one week!
