Project 251: Honeymoon Edition

Before we headed off to the UK, we headed down to New Jersey to spend some time with one of Best Guy's oldest friends and his family, whom I had never met. We took off fairly early in the day with the intention of knocking off a few 251 towns on the way. After all, we had to drive through them anyway, why not?

After a couple harrowing miscalculations on my part behind the wheel, we managed to knock off five towns before leaving Vermont and heading in to New York. I present to you, the very start of our honeymoon:

From there we took a red eye to Heathrow, and then rented a car and drove to Wales. BG did all of the driving while we were over there, and I am so proud …

Thursday evening we fly out. Friday morning, we arrive.

This morning, I have a 2-hour hot stone scheduled for myself. Because taking care of me is important too. I have been looking forward to it for a solid month now. Hot stones massages are my absolute favorite, and I am lucky enough to be able to schedule it with one of my favorite people. Working in the industry really has its perks sometimes.

When I get home this afternoon, the packing begins. We've got a tiny amount of space, and some of it has already been taken up by merch we're bringing in. If anyone asks, we're giving it away not selling it. Because lord knows none of it is coming back with us. I will be packing with a glass of wine, b…
