So, today is our one month anniversary and I am quite possibly the worst wife ever, I am precisely 17,683km away from my husband (thats 10,987 miles for the imperial players). I actually used this website to work out that I am actually not that far from the furthest possible point I could possible be away from him.
If I dug a really deep hole from Sydney, Australia, this is where I would end up:
Yep, that would be just off the coast of Portugal, next to that is Spain, where I am currently spending our one month anniversary.
So, the Teaspoons did what any normal newlywed couple would do and dug the top teir of our wedding cake out 2 days early (ok, 11 months and 2 days early, but we were never going to wait a year):
Oh my, doesnt she look tasty? Well, im sorry to break it to you hive, it was so gross. Admittedly, we went with buttercream chocolate cake, so it was never going to work really well, but something went wrong - I made sure to follow the instructions on this post about preserving the cake, but I just dont think it was meant to happen. Ok, that was a lie, I didn't do squat - I forwarded the post to Mama Teaspoon and I received a lovely boxed cake a few days later for us to pop into our freezer. Moving on, quite unexpectedly, the icing on the other hand was AMAZING! I may or may not have kept cutting slices and just eating the icing... I cant help it, I love marzipan!
It was taking up an entire shelf in our freezer, so im kind of glad its done with to be honest, especially since it was not very yummy.
For the important stuff, our first month of marriage has been amazing, we hit the ground very firmly, as a friend described as a "thud" back to earth after being on Cloud 9 for the past few weeks. Going back to work was a shock to the system but its that much easier knowing im going home every night to my husband. I am ready to jump on board with the official name changing when I get back from overseas and then I think it will really sink in - Im still calling myself Miss Teaspoon, especially at work and on planes because nothing has changed there - must be fixed!
How did you celebrate your one month anniversary?
