I just wanted to post some compliments to Zach. I know we've only been married for two weeks and two days today and everyone says we're "still on our honeymoon", but Zach really is a great husband. I know I'm very blessed that he chose me to be his wife. He's been so good to take in not only me as a housemate, but my dog too! Speaking of that, she's his little buddy during the day now. Instead of keeping her in the guest room by herself, he's had her out all day with him. While he works in his office, she lays in her little bed by the window and looks out all day in between naps (He pulled the blinds up so she can see out). He not only takes care of her during the day, but he fixes lunch for me at home on the days we don't go out, and this Sunday morning while I was getting ready for church, he cooked breakfast! He taught me how to do the laundry (sad, I know) and cleaning the house has been my "career" lately. I like how we both have our own things to do around the house. I love the little things that he does, when I don't even ask him to. I'm so thankful for a wonderful husband and am so excited to see what God has in store for our future together!

Our honeymoon trip to St. Thomas was wonderful! We relaxed at the beach for a couple of days, went shopping in downtown St. Thomas about three days (no surprise there!), and ate so much great food! We even treated ourselves at the shops- Zach bought a watch and I bought some diamond earrings. After all the work we did on the wedding planning, we deserved it!
We went to Coral World Ocean Park one day and enjoyed the SeaTrek, where we went underwater with masks attached to an oxygen hose. We saw so many fish and got to hold starfish underwater. It was a unique experience. We also visited their Lorikeet Garden where they would land on us as we fed nectar to them...one got a little too "up close and personal" with Zach (see photo). The aquarium there was great too. We were really glad we took a day and went to the park.
The weather was great, even though it got a little too hot at times. The sun was harsh, so we didn't get too much of it. It was nice not having to keep up with what time it was...at times we had to think hard about what day it was. It's always great to escape from the real world for a little while and not think about work.
By Saturday (our one week anniversary!), we were somewhat ready to come home to see our families and our babies, Daisy and Cosmo. We were so happy with our choice of St. Thomas and hope to go back for an anniversary trip sometime! We'll post more photos later. We had a full camera many times during the trip, but luckily Zach brought the laptop to transfer them all.
