Wedded Bliss

I won't bore you with a long, drawn out version of the events of this past week. Instead I will give this to you in a nutshell.

I am now married! FH is now Final Hubs instead of Future Hubs and we had a fairy tale wedding come true. We got married at a golf resort here in the DFW area and it was fabulous. We had good friends and beloved family by our sides and I wouldn't change a minute of it. My Ex even showed up to support his daughter and help her understand that he is still her Dad no matter what. I thought that took a lot of guts and showed how much he really loves his daughter.

After the wedding, we made a stop back at home to revel in our fabulous gifts from our wacky friends. I did receive a miniature version of Beyonce and had to explain to family and friends why this was a treasured gift rather than one that was misguided or tacky. B Jr. is now happily residing in my front flower bed and welcomes us home each day!!

Next we headed out to Napa, CA to a B&B for two days. We wined and dined and wined some more. The hotel was fabulous and we took in all of the sights we could see. There were a few wineries that I know I want to go back to. The Robinson Family winery is a must see as well as the Truchard Family vineyard as well. If you make sit out that way, I highly recommend the smaller, family run vineyards over the larger chains. They are just more interesting and you get to meet the people involved.

After Napa, we went to San Francisco where I quickly discovered everything is either on top of a hill or up a flight of stairs. I now have buns of steel. I climbed more hills and stairs than I ever thought possible. We had some more great food, met some more friends for dinner and of course did the Alcatraz tour. It was amazing. I never realized that the guards lived on the island with their families. Incredibly interesting and must see if you are ever out that way.

I will have to say that the people of Napa and San Francisco were wonderful. They were helpful and polite, friendly and caring. They gave great recommendations and stellar directions.

Now I am back home doing my mountain of laundry. If you see a pile moving, please dig in as I am sure to be under it somewhere!!


  1. Yayyyy....Congratulations Linda. So happy for you and hubby. Best of everything life has to offer you both! Hugs. Barb

  2. Okay, now it seems to be working.

    It was a wonderful celebration of your love for Final Hubs (and vice versa). I enjoyed meeting his family, they were great. Beautiful wedding, my dear.
    And I must say how touching it was to see the exchange between Ex Hubs and Final Hubs at the reception. Truly showed good character for them both.
    Can't wait to make the album with you when you get the photos (and some time!).

  3. Hooray! Happy wedding and honeymoon and marriage! And LOVE San Francisco. Excellent choice!

  4. Yeah!

    I am so excited for you!

    And how wonderful that the two of them could be supportive for your girl, I wish I could say the same.

  5. Both Ex and Final Hubs got many brownie points for being so coordial to each other during the ceremony. I am truly blessed to have such great people in my life. We can't always be perfect, but we all strive to do the right things when it counts.
