So, marriage..?  Yes!  We got hitched in Nevada's Valley of Fire State Park.  We had originally planned it as eloping, through and through.  I abhor big weddings and all of the trappings that go along w/ it.  As such, I had long said that if I get married, we'd leave for a pleasant two weeks vacation and come back w/ a lovely set of rings and the pics to match.  That was the thought...

What actually happened was we're both horrible at keeping secrets...at least the kind that are completely worth sharing!  First we spilled the beans to Susan B. & her better half and did a drunken clumsy job doing so.  Next, Lili wanted to tell her mom, with whom we are sharing an East Haven beach house.  And from there, you tell your mom so, I have to tell my mom and so on & so forth.  In hindsight, all together we had 9 best friends & family and don't regret having including them.  For those interested parties, pics and other such links can be found on my Flickr set here.

In other life altering news, we are leaving Connecticut.  We and SBA have been hatching a mass exodus to Portland, OR for the past 6 months+.  They drove cross-country, saw sights & a wedding and landed there on Monday.  Their housing results have been mixed but, they're both extremely happy!  Our timeline has us leaving for mid-September and arriving for the beginning of October.  We'll be able to visit Robin & Trey again in Iowa, pass through South Dakota Bandlands, dip south towards the Sierra Nevadas and finally drive up through wine country, the Bay area, stop off for some wild salmon fishing and cross the finish line.  The trip will technically be our honeymoon! 

Do we have jobs yet?  Or given notice or an apartment picked out?  No, no and no.  We're working on the three as I speak and should be resolved within the next 2-3 weeks.  Are we having going away celebrations and the what-not?  Yep!  Call or message me if you're interested in attending and I'll keep you in the loop.  Until then, imagine selling your car, shedding 9/10 of your possessions and going on the road trip of a lifetime w/ your best friend.  Yeah, I can't wait to start either.
