Nine years.


Today marks our 9 year wedding anniversary, so I thought it would be fun to show some NEVER BEFORE SEEN (Okay, rarely seen in the last 9 years), photos of our honeymoon!

Honeymoon in Vegas

I adore our honeymoon photos, and in fact, I'd have to say that I hold them more dear than the ones from our wedding day. Several years ago, I made a photo album / scrapbook for them. We spent our honeymoon in Las Vegas, so only a Vegas style album would do! Yes, that cover is velvet. Doesn't it remind you of the decor in a cheap casino hotel room? Totally appropriate.

Inside the album.

Here's a peek at the inside. I had intended to include journaling to describe our trip, but I never got around to it. I admit that journaling, even though it's so critical to memory keeping, is my least favorite part of scrapbooking, and I'll often finish every other part of a project other than the journaling. Lauren's kindergarten album? Finished, all but the journalling.

But back to the honeymoon, which came way before Lauren.


Here we are in the lobby of the fabulous Venetian hotel where we spent our stay.


Here I am joking around in front of the Mirage. This was before Manticore went berserker and almost ate Roy, so this was not meant to be a parody.


Here's the closest I'll ever get to the Eiffel Tower.


And the closest I'll get to Harrison Ford, for that matter.


For those of us who know my darling well, this is too easy. We'll just say that Mark is hanging out at FAO Schwartz at Caesar's Palace.


Me lounging in front of the pyramid at Luxor.


Me pretending to be Lady Liberty in front of New York, New York.


Mark taking liberties with some ladies.


Elvis impersonator. A very short Elvis impersonator.


Yes, here's that same old shot that everyone has of a weird guy on stilts tickling someone with a feather. You can only be so creative with your vacation photos.


 As you can see, we had a lot of fun. Maybe next year for our tenth anniversary we'll return to Las Vegas, with Lauren in tow of course. :)
