Our Honeymoon - A dream come true :)

We have been married for 5 months now.  It sounds like a short time but I feel like I have known this man forever :)  He is my best friend.  Time only increases my love for him. 

I have been meaning to post about our honeymoon but I couldn't locate our honeymoon pictures.  Well I found them today so I thought it was the perfect time to blog.

I remember when we first started talking about where we wanted to go for our honeymoon.  Brian thought we should take a three week honeymoon - lol.  He was completely serious.  That's what I love about him.  He doesn't do things the way everyone else does.  He wanted us to have three weeks to just be in love, to relax, to be free of the world and it's pressures for a short time.  We compromised and went on a 10 day honeymoon :)

We had been counting the days to our honeymoon for quit a while.  I couldn't wait to be Mrs. Wheeler.  We knew that this relationship was rooted in God and we wanted to do things His way.  This means waiting to live together until we were married and waiting on other important things as well (wink, wink).  It felt like it was going to be forever.  I felt 100% sure that it would be worth the wait and so did Brian.  We had done things our own way in the past (with other relationships).  We knew that this only led to heartache.  God's way is always perfect and we knew there would be blessings in doing things rightly this time around.

We decided to go to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for our honeymoon.  We stayed at the Riu Palace.  It was beautiful!!!  We had the most amazing time.  The weather was perfect every day.  Sunshine, blue skies, clear waters, and my best friend!!!  It was a dream come true.

We took a boat to "Lover's Beach", went on a Zipline adventure, were nearly swept away by a giant wave, spent a day in Cabo, visited Cabo Wabo, won the ping pong tournament at the resort, enjoyed a couple's massage on the beach, enjoyed lots of good food, met some amazing couples, and soaked up the sun.  I will remember our time there forever.

I can tell you that doing things God's way was worth the wait (that's all I will say - lol).  We are still experiencing fireworks and I have a feeling we will be for a long time.  I feel so blessed to have Brian in my life.  He loves me with everything in him.  He takes my breath away.  It's not just the big things he does but the everyday little things that make me love him so much.  Taking the time to play board games with the kids, fixing their hurts with kisses and laughter, talking with them, listening to their hearts, singing to them, and praying over each one of them at bedtime.  He plans our meals, cooks, goes to the grocery, helps me with the house, surprises me with massages, flowers, and dinners out.  I am truly blessed.

We are looking forward to going back to Cabo one day!!!!  We would love to have some friends/family join us :)
