You may recall from our previous blog about planning our honeymoon, that Serj and I decided to travel to South Africa. One of the best decisions we made was planning our trip three months after the wedding. For us, it was like the last little bit before we had to say bye to our wedding planning and adventure. So with both of us scared of flying, we took what felt like the longest flight to London. I had been to London previously, but Serj had not, so we decided to stay there for three days. From there, we flew to Johannesburg and connected to Cape Town, South Africa.

After our wedding, one of the reasons we kept bugging our photographer, Lark Wedding Photography, for our pictures was to be able to choose the right one in preparing our Thank You cards for our guests. But in reality, it's so much more than just choosing a picture. For us, there are three different kinds of Thank You cards we will be sending.
