After a very long day of travel that began at 3:30 AM we finally returned home from our amazing honeymoon. We had such a wonderful time the past week, we truly couldn't have asked for more. St. Lucia is an absolutely beautiful country, full of incredibly nice people. Our resort was fantastic and it was a week of pure bliss. I plan to get into more detailed recaps including a LOT of pictures but unfortunately I have to work tomorrow *sad face* and I'm still playing catch up from being without Internet or TV for a WEEK! Shockingly I didn't break out into convulsions or shakes from withdrawal.
However, there is one story I want to tell of the honeymoon and a huge shout out to my newest blog/honeymoon friends.
First let me back up, a few months back I got a comment from a guy on my post about where we were going on our honeymoon. He mentioned that he found my blog while doing a google search on our resort. He mentioned he was surprising his wife with a trip there for their anniversary and would be there at the same time as us. I didn't have a way to contact him back and ended up forgetting about it.
Cut to Thursday night and Kristian and I were sitting at the bar enjoying a drink after the dinner. I should mention that our resort was much smaller and more intimate than most resorts so we had seen most of these couples several times already. Anyway, there was a table of 3 couples in the dining area and they called Kristian over to the table.
They asked him if his wife was "Always a bridesmaid" and actually had my blog pulled up on their small laptop at the table. Kristian then called me over and it turned out that Andy was the one that had commented on my blog and since then had been following along. Since there are pictures of me and Kristian on the blog it wasn't too hard for him to figure out I was the one that wrote this blog. So he knew all about us already! It was the coolest, weirdest, funniest moment of the trip. Turns out they also have a blog which then led into a discussion on blogs in general.
As we were talking about blogging, another couple came over to the table to join the conversation and I discovered that it was Kristen from Madame Monogram. When I mentioned that I had heard of her blog before but couldn't remember how she started naming off some of her blog friends and when she mentioned Summer I was like "I Know Summer!" and she was like "I know Summer too!" I told her how I was good friends with KLaw and met Summer at her baby shower. Talk about Small World.
It was amazing to travel thousands of miles to another country and meet people that read my blog and that I have friends in common with. The best part was Kristian's reaction. He's never really understood the whole blog thing and laughs when I mention my "bloggy friends" so it wouldn't have surprised me at all if he thought the whole thing was weird and creepy but it was quite the opposite. He thought it was so cool that there were people out there that read my blog and that we made these connections. He kept referring to me as his "famous blog wife" all night. HA!
So this post is dedicated to my old and new St. Lucia blog followers- Andy, Kim, Joe, Quanda, Kristen and Brian--you guys are awesome and we had a great time hanging out with you all!!!
