My husband and I got married last October and since I was finishing up the rest of my semester of college we took a delayed honeymoon mid December. It has been a year since we left for Paris. Oh how I wish we were headed there now.
We both enjoyed not having to worry about honeymoon plans while worrying about the last minute details of our wedding. We had plenty of time after the wedding to look forward to our honeymoon. Byron had been to Paris before on a short trip when he studied a semester abroad at Oxford. For me this was my first time to travel outside of the U.S. We both agreed that Paris would be the perfect place to celebrate our new marriage.
The week before our trip a very rare occurance happened in Dallas, ice, and lots of it. Byron's work had already canceled several days and I had bought a lot of groceries in preparation for the ice storm. It was a great opportunity for me to practice my domestic cooking abilities. After about four days stuck in our house we were getting a little dose of cabin fever and agreed to meet a friend at a local place just down the road for brunch. I mean the restaurant is literally just down the road surely we would make it there safely with a little ice on the road.
Well... that was not the case. Byron went out to wipe some ice off of the windshield and slipped on the frozen driveway onto his arm. After a trip to the emergency room down the road the x rays more than confirmed his arm pain. He had completely broken his humerus bone in half. When I saw the x-ray I just cringed. He ended up having surgery the same day to put plates in his arm. The Dr. said we would be just fine to go on out trip if we just take it easy. Looking back maybe it wasn't the best idea (since we just endured surgery #2 on it) but we went for it and the next week we found ourselves on our 10 hour flight to Paris.
Here are some pictures from our trip. I have enjoyed reminiscing over these sweet memories. I now know why people fall so in love with this city.
