About five months after our wedding, Tim and I finally went on our honeymoon. In hindsight I wouldn't recommend this, go on your honeymoon right after your wedding! I'm telling you, returning to work the weekend after is nothing short of anticlimactic (which is what we both did). Although the honeymoon was the last thing on my mind with everything that had to be planned, I can't deny that I was a little bit concerned if we would even go on one. Once you get back into your daily grind it's too easy to push aside, our honeymoon should have been put on a higher priority. We decided to go to Italy and visit four places including Rome, Venice, Florence and Vernazza.  They were all magnificent; pasta, gelato and market food overload, rough life I know.
