I’M MARRIED! Matt and I tied the knot last Saturday, September 8th, and since then, I’ve been taking a much-needed break from blogging and working in general (no honeymoon for us; sadness). As of today, I’m going to try to get back in the swing of things, but I must admit I’m a little overwhelmed by my to-do list at the moment. I’ve got a lot of ground to cover this fall, but I’ll be doing my best to take things one step at a time. My blogging will probably be erratic (though hasn’t it always been?), but I WILL be fulfilling all my posting promises over the course of the season, including a juice cleansing review wrap-up and a whole series of wedding posts.
I will also admit that, after the austerity of my Summer of Juice, I’ve been verrry liberal with my diet since the wedding. I’ve been indulging in many things I haven’t had in months, and though I’m now ready to get back into a healthier eating regimen, I’ve certainly enjoyed the past week and a half!
Matt and I have actually not had much time “alone together” as newlyweds, but we have gone on a couple meal dates. The morning after the wedding, we ate lunch at Waldo Pizza: gluten-free vegan cheesy bread…
…and pizza (mushrooms, onions, and vegan hamburger for Matt; roasted garlic, artichoke hearts, and Kalamata olives for me).
A couple nights ago, we enjoyed an Ethiopian feast at Blue Nile, including veggie sambusas…
…and a whole bunch of tasty veggie and lentil dishes, along with plenty of injera.
I’ve been enjoying spending the bulk of my time lately, though, with the amazing Hannah of Wayfaring Chocolate, who came to town for the wedding and is staying with us pretty much all month. Isn’t she darling? We’ve been having quite a time together.
We spent a beautiful day in my college town of Lawrence, Kansas last week.
…Hannah had I Am Gorgeous…
…and I had I Am Humble. Check out CG-KC’s site for the deets on these dishes.
Another highlight was lunch at FÜD! Hannah had a raw rainbow salad with wild rice taco meat, and I ate an order of the Nachitos, with wild rice taco meat, cashew nacho cheese, guacamole, et al. After that, we went next door to Little Freshie for a post-lunch treat: a raspberry-pine needle “shrub” (an unsweetened vinegar-soda drink) and a pistachio macaron.
There is much, much more, but I’m going to take it easy on myself and blog it all in a string of shorter posts rather than one giant post.
I hope you’re all having a lovely September so far. Watch out for wedding posts to begin soon. 😉
