Married DedSo, I got married yesterday, the 11th of May, 2013. Now I'm sitting in the terminal waiting to fly out of Boston to our honeymoon in Greece. I'll see all y'all after I get back in a week and a half. Cheers.
Och aye tha noo, amiciStill not sure about where exactly we're getting married, but it won't be in Scotland. Too many difficulties and complications with getting people over there. However, there will be quite a bit of Scottish flair with our wedding. I will be wearing a kilt, which is something I've been dying to do. In looking at tartans, I really took a liking to the Italian National Tartan. However, it isn't a very common design (at least over here) and kilt makers here said it could take 15 weeks or longer to have the fabric woven and sent over for the kilt to be made.
Well, we communicated this to Aunt Avril in Glasgow. She knows plenty of people in the kilt business and said she would look around. Yesterday I was told she's buying 8 yards of it and sending it over. There's a very skilled and highly respected kilt maker who works at the same college I do, in the building next door to our offices. She said she'll make the kilt if I get her the fabric.
Exploring the SeasSo, I just got back from my first cruise. I didn't know if it would be my thing at first, but having done it I can say it is truly a blast, especially with my Ayla.
We sailed out of Cape Liberty in NJ abord Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas. We hit San Juan in Puerto Rico, St Thomas, Samana in the Dominican Republic, and Labadee (RC's privately owned vacation spot) in Haiti. It was nice seeing a bit of each different place and getting some ideas for future vacations (maybe a long weekend in San Juan, maybe the rest of my life in St Thomas) and having fun on the boat. We were never bored and we didn't do a fraction of what there was to do. Everything was great.
