Start at the Beginning: How I Met My Man
Our Honeymoon Part 1
My dad always said, “Love is blind and marriage is the eye opener.” I always liked that saying–until I got married!
We went on my dream honeymoon. We spent five nights at an all inclusive honeymoon resort in the Pocono Mountains. The rooms were lavish and unlike any others I have ever seen. It was wonderful to just relax, enjoy the slow pace, and eat all we could hold. We had a wonderful time there.
The only inkling of things to come was regarding the food. You see breakfast and supper were included, but for lunch we were on our own. Well, Jason figured out how to beat the system. He ordered breakfast in bed that came to the door at six o’clock in the morning. I would much rather have slept in. However they served breakfast in the dining room until 10:30 so we would get there right at the last second for our second breakfast aka lunch! Little did I know…
After that we were Florida bound to do as many Orlando parks as we could in five days and four nights. Our first big fight happened at the airport. We were standing at the super fast paced shuttle. Jason was holding all the tickets and pushing a cart with our luggage. He was trying to decide which shuttle we were supposed to take. Making a very last second decision, he shouted, “This one!” and literally shoved me on. Tripping over my feet and fighting for balance I looked back and the doors were closing. Those trains do not stop or wait for people. He wasn’t going to make it. This was before we had cell phones. He had the tickets and all the info for where we were supposed to be. In that split second I saw myself riding the train alone for hours, not knowing where to get off or what to do. But by some miracle, he managed to get on. I still have no idea how he did it, but I was livid! Jason, bless his heart, did not see that there was any big deal, and was angry with me for being angry. He had NEVER been angry with me before. Suffice it to say, I let this spoil the better part of the day.

Well, good to know that our honeymoon wasn’t the only one with bumps in the road…
Talk about keeping us in suspense about the breakfasts …
We had our first fight on our honeymoon too!! It must be all the stress leaving the body after the excitement of the wedding 🙂 Can’t wait to hear what happens next!

We’ve done some traveling since our marriage, but still haven’t been on a honeymoon!
That is TOTALLY something that would happen to me and my husband right down to the breakfast thing!!! LOL 🙂 Except with us, it’s that he tries to keep track of all our travel on his smart-phone, and that never works out the way we’d like, so I’m now a psycho about printing out ALL our travel documents and keeping them in my purse.

My husband looked over my shoulder and said, “Who put them in a wine glass?” I said, “Huh?” until I looked at the picture more closely, and I laughed. I was actually reading your post, but my husband couldn’t get over the fact that you were trapped in a wine glass. LOL
The breakfast thing sounds like something my hubby would do! So sorry about your first fight. Sounds like a fun honeymoon though! I can’t wait to hear the next part of the story!
I always heard that marriages with no fights don’t last 😉 So you got yours started on the right food 🙂
I could totally see that happening to me… except my husband moves faster than me… he’d have the luggage and himself on and I’d be left behind! It’s always nice to be on this side of things, where you can laugh about it now!
Poconos — sweet! We honeymooned in North Carolina, in the mountains, and it was perfect. We didn’t want a whole lot of people around anyway!
I would have feaked out at the thought of being stuck on the wrong shuttle too!
Men are from Mars, etc…
It’s a wonder we ever get together, let alone get married. 😉

It’s amazing how many husbands and wives share the same characteristics! Jason sounds a lot like me; I can picture myself doing what he does, especially with the train 🙂
I pray that you two have a wonderful married life together.
