THE HONEYMOON


For our honeymoon, Daniel and I went to McCall, Idaho. Just a short three months ago, we had gotten engaged there on a warm summer's day. During our honeymoon, the quaint town was deserted since it wasn't snowing (except for one day), and the ski mountain wasn't open yet. It was like we had McCall entirely to ourselves.

We ended up running into my dad and his girlfriend at our hotel's restaurant and game room one night. They have a cabin in McCall and came over for a drink before dinner. They ended up joining us for a game of shuffleboard. What a fun surprise to get to run into my family!

We ate amazing food at all of McCall's best restaurants, did lots of Christmas shopping at local specialty shops, enjoyed one day of snow, relaxed in the spa at Shore Lodge, saw a little fox by the golf course, drove up to see the ski mountain one afternoon, and played lots and lots of Scrabble by the hotel's amazing fireplace.

It was relaxing, romantic, and the perfect week to finish of the best week of my life. I feel like I'm still on the honeymoon. I haven't fully gotten back into everything yet... no answering emails, not mentally all there at my job, and I just want to cuddle and spend time with Daniel all the time. Just a note for all those brides thinking of getting married around the holidays... it is busy. Enjoy every little minute of it. Soak it all in... and truly appreciate everything you have. I wouldn't trade a single moment of the entire week for anything.

I've only ever driven through Idaho but I remember it being really beautiful! It sounds like it was a great place to honeymoon. The spa looks amazing. And is that a fox all curled up at the base of the tree???

Aunie, I'm so jealous of that snow! Can we trade pleaseee??? I'll give you warm sunny weather with lots of beautiful Caribbean weather for the snow. Deal? :)

I'm so happy that you enjoyed your honeymoon. I've always wondered if it would be "pressure" and what does one do besides...well you know. I love how romantic and relaxing you guys own turned out. I pray that you both continue to grow with each other in God.

That actually looks like my kind of honeymoon! Lol. Relaxed, laidback, and no bikinis in sight! ;) No offense to people who take their honeymoon on a tropical beach, but cozyness by the fire is definitely more my style! ;)

I've never seen the interior of Shore Lodge in the winter. Gorgeous! And it's still cracking me up that the first blog I opened today led me to you...and I'm just about to head to the Cove!

Annelise Rowe said...

Oh my gosh! It's beautiful inside... oh and the cove! So gorgeous. I felt totally pampered while lounging in their chairs and relaxing in their mineral pools. Oh... how I want to go back! Have a great time!
