My mother called me the other day for the sole purpose of telling me that she had just enjoyed reading my series of honeymoon posts on the blog. This alerted me to two things:
1. Wow my mom doesn't read my blog very often (I already knew that).
2. I NEVER FINISHED WRITING THOSE HONEYMOON POSTS!
The past weekend marked 10 months since our wedding and it's been almost 6 months since my last honeymoon post. Oops. I know there are a lot of new followers on my blog since I first started sharing my honeymoon adventures, so you may want to recap before you read on.

DAY 7 | BYE DISNEY, HI SAVANNAH
Our last day at Disney World: So

I was determined to splurge on a
"fancy" dinner for our last night and splurge we did- at The Olde Pink House. If you're in town, I highly recommend it. I ate the best scallops of my entire
life at dinner that night.
DAY 8 | HOME
After a brief
interruption the next
morning, we drove out to Tybee Island for a little while and returned to have
lunch at the famous Leopold's Ice Cream. Then it was
back on the road to NC. This was our view almost the entire drive home:

We arrived safe & sound in Greensboro on Thursday evening, Brandon went back to work on Friday, and I started my summer job on Monday. We haven't slowed down since then! Now that I'm almost a year late finishing up my honeymoon recap, we're only 9 weeks away
