It’s hard to believe that we have been married for 21 years today!
I feel like every year I talk about our wedding and put this photo – one of my favorites – on the blog:
This year I thought I would dig out the honeymoon photos! This required taking photos of photos so the quality won’t be that great. Our honeymoon was in the era of “take your film to Walgreen’s and wait 7-10 days for it to be developed into prints”.
We went to Aruba! I think we had to be at the airport at 3:00 a.m. after our wedding reception!
Dinner on the beach:
I remember really liking all of my honeymoon wardrobe. Tom still owns most of his clothes he wore! I don’t own a stitch anymore!
Dinner at a romantic outdoor place that had the trees all covered in lights:
The food in Aruba was really good. We did not do all inclusive because we wanted to be free to go wherever.
On this day we sea kayaked and snorkeled. We snorkeled at least three times during the week. We are not big on just laying on the beach!
We had a disposable underwater camera.
We went on a “pirate ship” and snorkeled around a shipwreck.
Tom did a flip off the boat; he was invited to do so, he didn’t just do it!
We rented a “Jeep” one day and saw all of the 60 square mile island. I remember we thought this purple rental was funny.
We saw lots of cool things while exploring. It is very windy in Aruba; there are even trees bent from the wind.
Tom used to get so tan.
Is that Fabio? Michael Bolton? Matthew McConnaughey? It’s my new husband!
This was a famous bar so we had to check it out.
I remember being excited to return home and just be married! And, a year and a half later we would find out we were having twins!
We have a dinner reservation tonight! Hopefully Tom will gaze into my eyes and profess how much more he loves me today than he did 21 years ago.
How long have you been married? Where did you go on your honeymoon? I love hearing others’ stories!
