Last week Laura and I took our first “vacation” since we’ve been married. We’ve taken several trips, but nothing close to a week of “doing nothing.” It was exciting to have a (paid) week where we could just sit back and relax. We spent some time with her family, took Ruby to the beach and […]
Well, it’s been an amazing week! So much has happened in the past 8 days – got hitched, honeymooned/drove across four states (twice) and avoided an epic ice storm.
Laura and I are very happy to married and living life together. During our marriage counseling sessions we often talked about dealing with “life” … like jobs, arguments, money, whatever life throws at you, etc…
I often referred to a business term I learned while studying at Berry when we would talk about marriage.
You Got To Roll With The Punches - This is a phrase that refers to how boxers need to deal with the reality of actually of getting hit. Mike Tyson said it best of how hard it is to deal with a “hit” when he said “Everyone has a plan ’till they get hit.”
Well, Laura and I have been “rolling with the punches” for our wedding and our honeymoon. We’re both job searching (for the right job), worked very hard to finance a wedding with little cushion, changed our wedding reception venue 48 hours before our wedding, and honeymooned thrifty (but still had lots of fun) on the down-low in Virginia.
Today we had to cut our honeymoon short because of the ice/snow storm that is hitting the entire South. We drove 9 hours from the Virginia mountains to Savannah.
I’m confident that we will be able to deal with whatever life throws our way… We’ve already been doing it for the first week.

I visited my alma mater, Berry College, this weekend to be with Laura and attend a marriage counseling session. The counseling session ended up being canceled due to a family bug, but Laura and I had a great time exploring Berry. We hiked to the Berry College Reservoir and enjoyed taking in the beautiful fall foliage around Berry’s 26,000 acre campus.
The photos below were taken with my Cannon PowerShot SD940 IS Digital Elph AND the photos are completely unedited. I hope you enjoy the views as much we did.
