Wife and Wife

Let me start off with an apology for our three-week hiatus from the blog! Man oh man have we been busy, preparing for our trip and dealing with finishing up the Spring semester at school. Now that we have finally caught a break and have a moment to breathe, I can finally share all of the wonderful things that have been on my mind, waiting for me to have a chance to write them down!

As you may remember, our last visit to the fertility doctor did not go as well as we would have hoped. J still had the cyst on her right ovary and we are (not so) patiently waiting for the start of her May cycle to see if it has completely gone away yet so that we can start trying again. We’ll more than likely know either way in the next week or so, and we are both hoping for some good news this time! Now that our schedule has cleared up some with the trip for our wedding being over and school finally coming to an end for the semester, I feel like we are both prepared and ready to focus on the baby-making journey with full investment once again. Plus, it just feels right knowing that now that we are married, we’re doing things in the order we have always wanted to.

That’s not to say that we don’t still get frustrated or feel down about our whole hiatus. Its been two months now and it seems like an eternity! J keeps getting upset that we have to pay our $200 copay just to go get the ultrasound to find out that it’s a no-go each cycle, but I keep reminding her that at least its not $900 to just go ahead with it all and have a close-to-zero chance of it even working. I’d rather spend the $200 than the $900 any day. And when I get frustrated that it hasn’t happened yet, she just reminds me that we’ve only had one try at the doctor’s office so far…technically due to her not ovulating, the first three tries at home really just shouldn’t count. So then I make her feel better about the money, and she makes me feel better about the time. We are in the same boat, just at different ends it seems. But at least we have each other.

So…we are still waiting and I’ll be sure to update the blog once we find out if we are a go or no-go again as soon as we know. I know that you all haven’t forgotten about us and I assure you we have been thinking of all of our readers and wanting to fill you in (we just haven’t had the time!).

Now onto the news I’m sure you are all wanting to hear, THE WEDDING!

Let me start off by saying that this was the most amazing vacation and time of my life! It is our first “big” vacation, meaning that while we’ve taken a road trip before from Sunny Florida to Hot-As-Hell Atlanta, this was our first trip utilizing the services of aircraft. Now, not to sound like a paid endorsement, but JetBlue was phenomenal. If we can help it, we will never fly another airline again! The experience and service were just exemplary, and it was only the beginning of a wonderful weekend.

We flew into DC the Thursday before our wedding on a night flight. While the flight was perfect and without a hitch, the ride from the airport to the hotel in the shuttle was…less than normal. Every stoplight we hit, the shuttle would die. Literally! Right there in the middle of the road. Good thing it was nighttime or we could have had some serious trouble. Not only that, but we met a cousin of the (now) Ambassador to Panama sitting in front of us on the shuttle and she was super nice! She was in town for her cousin’s inauguration…you never know who you’re going to meet on your travels 🙂

Once we got to the hotel, we were surprised! Not only was it GORGEOUS but J’s mom had so graciously called the hotel ahead of time and set up a beautiful snack tray with healthy snacks and fruit and cheese along with sparkling apple cider (since we don’t drink) in our room for us which was WONDERFUL. After the flight we were definitely hungry and it hit the spot!

The next morning we ordered room service for breakfast so we wouldn’t have to go try to find food on the morning of our big day. It arrived and was most excellent! See!

After breakfast we got dressed, primped, and beautified for our special event. We color coordinated so that we would match without being identical twins (geez we hear that comment enough as it is!) and set out to Tiffany’s office (she is the wonderful lady who filed our marriage application for us and also performed our ceremony in her lovely office). She was more than kind and for a change, we felt genuinely accepted for who we were and the fact that we were just two girls madly in love. Our ceremony was beautiful and we read our personal vows together. Of course we videotaped the entire thing to show our families and despite the garbage truck coming toward the end of our ceremony, it was perfect. I couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out, and it was a fantastic beginning to our day. 🙂

After the ceremony we took a cab back to the hotel and had a mini photo shoot in the garden across the street. The sun was shining but the wind was freezing! We finally moved inside and took more pictures, making sure to get plenty of great shots to remember the day.

The rest of the day was spent having lunch at the Hard Rock and visiting the National Mall so that we could see all of the monuments and especially so that J could see the Lincoln Memorial. Last time she had visited DC in middle school she hadn’t had the chance to see him and he is her favorite President. So this time we made sure to visit him and it was great. See how happy she is? I love this woman!

We didn’t do much on our wedding day, but we just spent quality time together and had a blast doing the little things. We ended up being so tired from walking around all day that we ordered room service again that night for dinner and it was equally as amazing as breakfast. Unfortunately we were both so famished that we dug right in and didn’t take a picture! Trust us, our filet mignon was top notch and well worth it!

When Saturday came along we were both so sad to leave DC. I was so glad that the weather was beautiful for us on our trip and that we had such a great time. It was the perfect beginning to our lives together as wife and wife!

So, there you have it, the synopsis of our wedding weekend…I hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed sharing our special day with all of you. As always, we are so grateful for all of your love and support and now with our wedding bands and marriage certificate in hand, I feel like we are more united, more solid, and more secure in not only our relationship but every aspect of our lives. I only hope to add the excitement of planning for a new addition to our family to our plate soon! But for now, I’m just happy living life and waiting to see what comes next, knowing that my beautiful wife is standing by my side, for better or worse. 🙂

Love,

-Mrs. & Mrs. B & J
