Our Honeymoon in Greece

Our Honeymoon in Greece

So we did it. A little over a month ago, Ivan and I got married. I haven’t received our full set of photos from our photographer yet, so I’ll wait to recap the wedding until I get the pictures.

On our trip to New Orleans, we did a great deal of eating. There are just so many iconic foods, flavors and places to try.
