Honey and the Moon

When the craziness of the wedding was over, I was so glad we decided to take a week off and go on our Honeymoon right away. There's no way I could have come back to reality the day after. That definitely would have led to a breakdown of some sort that may or may not have involved a newly married woman and an entire tub of chocolate icing.

I don't want to be that person who's all like "come on over for dinner and I'll make a fondue and we'll look at the pictures from our trip!" Instead I'll be all like "come on over to my blog and you can look at the pictures from our trip if you so desire and you can even dip bread in cheese for all I care." 

We decided to go to Niagara-on-the-Lake and then Niagara Falls. How you can be in Niagara-on-the-Lake (or NOTL as we regulars call it) and not fall in love with the place is beyond me. It is the most beautiful place I've been. It's super romantic with its bike rides along the river and its wine tours and sprawling vineyards and jacuzzi suites and adorable lamp posts and amazing restaurants.

I wanted to do it all. And since I was still kind of playing the "I'm the BRIDE" card, we did everything I wanted to do.

We biked along the river.

We strolled the ridiculously sweet main street.

We had an amazing dinner at a five-star restaurant.

We learned how wine is made (and tasted!) at a vineyard.


We ventured to Niagara Falls where we did all the typical, touristy Honeymoon stuff (although I was rolling my eyes, I have to admit it was super fun.)


We spent the last night nestled among the trees at Deerhurst Resort.

We returned home as husband and wife feeling absolutely refreshed and ready to begin our lives together. 

Hands down, best trip ever.
