Honeymoon Highlights

Sorry for the long hiatus, buts its for a good cause. My darling S. and I were finally married! Its actually a pretty funny story. In Virginia, where we were, there was this HUGE, HUMUNGOUS, MONSTER storm the night before the wedding, knocking out power all over VA and knocking down more than one tree in our neighborhood and elsewhere. Our guests, who had flown in from Germany and all over the US, were suddenly in a high-rise hotel with no power and no water and most crucially, no air conditioning. This was huge because it was like 100 degrees outside.

So obviously, we were rather concerned. A wedding in 100 degree heat with no food, music or lights might be considered a little too rustic, even for my tastes.

Somehow, however, the venue we were marrying at had retained their power and the wedding was able to go off as planned, despite some disgruntled and unshowered guests. Luckily, the crises made everyone let loose even more and it ended up being really fun. No, scratch that- it was perfect!

Anyways, after one more night sleeping in my parents house with no AC (no marriage suite, alas, as the hotel was shut down) we scuttled off for our honeymoon, which was basically a tour of the South. I didn't manage to take many food photos, but here are some highlights.
Gorgeous Spanish moss on Tybee Island, GA

A romantic river view 4th of July in Savannah, GA
Climbing (or rather, walking and panting) Stone Mountain with good pals in Atlanta, GA
An impromptu jazz band concert in New Orleans, LA

It was good stuff alright! And now I will return to your regularly scheduled food blog. :)
