It's official. I'm married! The wedding was everything I could have asked for and more: exactly what everyone wants for their big day. After a great weekend of celebrating with family and friends, Gavin and I headed off to Costa Rica for some much needed relaxation and time together. Even though our vows were to each other, we spent a lot of the weekend in a whirlwind of hellos, meeting new people, and general mingling with all of the people who were nice enough to join us in our celebration. So a week away for just the two of us was exactly what we needed. In addition, Gavin and I love to travel and we haven't been anywhere together in awhile since we've been hoarding his vacation time at work to make sure we could go on a great honeymoon.
Springs Resort looking over the Arenal Volcano. With hot springs, our own private jacuzzi, and four great restaurants to choose from, I was perfectly happy to spend a few days at this amazing hotel. Gavin and I have both done a lot of traveling and this was probably the most beautiful hotel either of us had ever visited. The spa credit for staying two nights that paid for a couple's massage didn't hurt either. But I'll stop reminiscing and come back to the real world. I'm looking forward to lots of new and exciting recipes as fall produce makes its way into my refrigerator so stay tuned!
