All In A Week

A little over a week ago I was concerned with things like punch bowls, flowers and the fact that I could not have a cookie or a handful of M&Ms every time I wanted to and still zip my wedding dress that was fitted a few months ago. I am happy to say that the punch found its way to a bowl, the flowers, which Erin requested be sunflowers mixed with the blue that Weber and I wanted, were perfect, and I had no problem zipping my dress! Here is the proof.

The girls were my attendants. They were beautiful. We each had a role - Brooke was the skinniest; Erin had the best hair; I was the happiest.

In the past week, I have forgotten about punch bowls, flowers, and whether or not my dress will zip. Weber and I are honeymooning in Vermont. We are staying at an amazing bed and breakfast, which I will tell you more about in a later post. For now suffice it to say that breakfast consists of more food than I had been eating in two days. We have been to the Ben and Jerry's factory. Yes, they give free samples and yes, I had a double dip of Imagine World Peace in addition to the free sample of Cookies and Cream. We went to the King Arthur Flour Baking School and Store. Samples? Yes. Free? No, but worth every penny spent on the chocolate croissant. Worth every calorie too since the dress doesn't matter anymore. Then there was the Cabot Cheese Creamery. Free samples there too! And let me not forget the samples of Vermont's best microbreweries that we have had every night with dinner. Fortunately it is my luggage they will weight at the airport and not me when we head home.

I said earlier that I no longer am concerned with flowers. That is not quite true. I no longer am worried about whether they are the proper color or if they are arranged correctly. Today, that is the responsibility of the Vermont countryside.
