It’s been awhile since my last post and I want to thank every person who kindly posted encouragement, support, and well wishes for the wedding and my time away. It was absolutely awesome. We had the best weather imaginable (85 degrees and sunny in Scotland. Unheard of!); my mother and sisters and aunt came, as well as some friends from England, Scotland, and as far away as California, and a lot of us had some time before the wedding day to spend either in London or up north together. The only thing I wish was that I’d had more time to spend with everyone who travelled so far, who I miss, and that was the only hard part about getting on a plane to Corfu at 8:30 in the morning the day after the wedding. 🙂 The ceremony was short and sweet, the minister lovely, Andy the piper played the songs I requested absolutely beautifully, and marched us back up the aisle to Scotland the Brave at the ceremony’s end.
We had a fantastic week of relaxing in Corfu, which I highly recommend. I’m not very good at relaxing, it turns out, especially after 5 months of wedding planning, so it took me about 4 days to actually realise it was perfectly acceptable – expected, even – to do nothing but lie in the sun, read, sleep, eat, and drink cocktails by the pool. I got into the swing of that REALLY well in the last few days. Then we topped off our honeymoon with a few days hiking in the Cairngorms in the Highlands, and a visit to Inverness and Culloden Battlefield. (Not very romantic, that last bit, but in a very strange kind of way, to those of you who’ve read any Diana Gabaldon books…).
So now I’m back, and have finally (more or less) caught up on unpacking, thank-yous, name change stuff and a full inbox. Now it’s time to get back to job hunting, and writing of course. On my to-do list is to migrate to wordpress.org and host my blog somewhere externally – which I’m hoping to do this week. That means a venue and name change! I think it will be cheyennecampbell.com, but I’m still deciding. I hope anyone following my blog will follow me when I move!
And I promise my next post will be less a list of reasons why I’ve been away, and more about writing. Thanks for reading! Hope YOU had a fabulous May/start of June!
