The Honeymooners

The honeymooners are HOME!!! My husband and I pulled in to our sweet little home yesterday afternoon after many hours of driving during a week's time. It was an enjoyable time to enjoy my husband one-on-one with no distractions. We drove from the church to Fort Worth where Kyle had booked us a fabulous hotel with a city view. That was a TREAT! The next morning we drove to Shreveport, Louisiana to see Kyle's grandmother who has terminal brain cancer and could not come to the wedding. We enjoyed getting to see her and show her the wedding video on our computer. On Monday, we drove from Shreveport to San Antonio, Texas. I was nearly a basket case from the car fever I received. Kyle and I both were getting edgy, tired, and achy from the near seven hours we spent in the car on boring roads. San Antonio never looked so good. We spent about three and a half days on the Riverwalk in a beautiful hotel my husband picked out used to surprise me. We ate breakfast on the river and enjoyed a plentiful and delicious buffet each morning. I've never seen a breakfast buffet with granola, dried fruit, greek yogurt, and other healthy options, but I savored each morning. I'm including a few pictures of our trip...pardon the quality. They are from our phone since my camera was forgotten after we left the wedding and we felt no desire to carry a huge case with is all day.

So elegant!
