Hi Again!

Wow! I can't believe it's been a month since I lasted posted! I think thats the longest period I have been away from the blogs! I know I have missed a ton of what has been going on with you guys. Some of you are married by now too! I will do my best to catch up on your blogs, promise!


So what has been going on with us... Well we had a fabulous wedding, of course with some glitches, we enjoyed spending time with our North American friends, and we had a fantastic honeymoon in the Maldives! We have been back a couple of weeks now and Mr. Milk is very busy with work, while I have been trying to secure a job with one of the universities here. Our apartment is finally starting to feel like a home and we are even thinking of having a house-warming party in the next few weeks. All thats left to come is our bed because of some miscommunication between us, the store, and the catalogue (will explain fully) but we are hoping to have that soon as well. 


We are still waiting for our pro pics so will start recaps once we get those. We got our video of the wedding and boy are we both glad we decided to get a videographer! For all of you thinking of cutting that out like we were, think again! I've seen the whole 3-4 hours of our wedding about five times till now and I can't get enough of it! The more I watch it the more I want to relive our wedding day all over again! For us the video became even more important for Mr. Milk's mom. She lost her mother 5 days before our wedding and even though she was a great sport and looked like she had a great time at the wedding, she didn't remember much and felt like she had a mask on the whole time. When she watched the dvd with us the other day, she became teary eyed several times and at the end told us that she only just realized that we got married!


Anyway, I think I will start with recaps from my bachelorette party since I never covered those, and then we'll see where we are as far as pro pics go. In the meantime, here are a few pics friends took of our day...

Welcome back! You looked so beautiful, and I can't wait to hear more about the day! I totally agree with you about the importance of getting a video, too. We are so glad we got one, not only for ourselves, but for our parents, who weren't with us duing the first look and at others points during the day.

Yey! Congratulations and welcome back! Missed your posts!

You looked soo beautiful! That's great you had a videographer and decided not to go without one. All of my married friends that didn't use one for their weddings told me that was their #1 regret; so of course I made it a priority for our wedding. My fiance wasn't too keene on it but I said it really would make me happy, and we budgeted for one! :)
That's so sad about your hubby's grandma passing right before the wedding; that's great his mom was able to watch your video and relive the day. Very sweet.

Looking forward to more recaps and pictures! Yey!

Oh, Maria...you look so GORGEOUS and SO happy! Congratulations. I can't wait to read your recaps and totally concur with the video thing. It just kills me when brides don't think they need a videographer...the pics are great but nothing compares to the video. There's just no doubt about it! Can't wait to hopefully see some live video on the blog :)
