It's almost been 3 months since the wedding and I cannot believe it. So now that I've had some time to settle in, I'd like to share some of our honeymoon with you all.

We stayed in Seattle at the Alexis Hotel in Downtown Seattle. It was a beautiful hotel and only blocks from Pikes Place Market

We visited, and contributed to, the famous gum wall

Went to the Aquarium, there were animals there too

It was really cool, but kinda smelled weird

Went to a Mariners game (J.J.!!!!)

Went to Gas Works Park, which was really pretty and fun. We watched sea planes land and we thought they weren't going to make it every time.

And we got all fancy for the best steak we've ever had at the Metropolitan Grill in downtown. We even got dessert for free! Honeymoon perks

Here's a video of a pedicab ride we took. It was fun, and our driver was so friendly

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect honeymoon.

Husband in happiness

I'm back! Back from the honeymoon, back to work, back to regular life (although regular life includes a wife now) and I'm loving it. Being married is so cool. I know that "it's gonna be tough" and "I've got a lot to learn" and every other bit of advice that I've been given by married couples young and old. The truth is, I don't like it when people tell me stuff like that. It makes me feel like they regret their marriage, like they want out. As if I've made some huge mistake (which unfortunately some would argue). I never want to see my marriage or my wife in any form of negative light. I know this will take a lot of work and, most of all, Jesus, but I think it's worth it...

Don't you?

So for everyone who has given me their advice, I'd like to give some in return:

Love your spouse like you just got married two weeks ago.

It's a place where differences don't matter, fights are rare, and smiles are constant. Find that place and live there.

The Invites

Our travel inspired wedding has not been manifested more than through the invitations we decided go with. Designed, created & delivered by the one and only Brandon Franco: these invites blew me away. I've seen this idea done before, but never like this. Brandon, you are amazing. I'd like to share them with you all.

Day 390

Meghan and I have been engaged now for 390 days, which means there are only 18 days left until the wedding!
There is so much to do, but life has never been better. I can't describe how it feels to be in this place, but it's a mixture of wonderful, exciting, anxious, and hopeful.

Training Day

A few weekends ago I went out shooting with my future father-in-law and some friends.

We had a really great time.

P.S. Now I want this

Boom! Manifested.

Just a few days ago I posted a selfish blog about things I really want. Well lucky for me, one of them has already found a place in my home.
I made a trip to Treasures&Junk on Friday with my sister and stumbled upon some amazing finds, one of which was a steel caged fan.
I've seen these for $65 + online and I was able to score this for $30!

(I love that it's GE. Makes me think of Jack Donaghy)

Not only did I find the fan, but I also found a typerwriter

(Only $15!!! and it works)

And this ruler that I'm using as a picture frame/holder

I love all three of these and they are really helping us achieve the style and feeling Meghan and I want our home to have.
