Thank you all, dear ones, for all your kind wishes, congratulations and prayers on our behalf! I spent nearly an hour yesterday reading through all the comments you left for us, and they are so heart-warming.
There aren't any pictures yet (probably next week), but for now I just wanted to give you a little update.
My first week as a married woman has been absolutely wonderful so far. I must say I don't even remember much from our wedding ceremony; it was all so deeply moving and exciting that it's all coming back to me in bits and pieces. I remember most clearly the moment my husband put a ring on my finger, and then the moment when he broke the glass (on third attempt ;)).
We didn't even visit our home so far, even though we didn't go on honeymoon in the usual meaning of the word. We simply have been spending time together and with our families. Today will actually be our first night in our new (rented) home, and it will some months before we settle into our permanent dwelling.
Again, thank you so much, dear ones, for your support along this challenging and beautiful journey of ours in the past months. Hope to talk to you soon, and a wonderful day to you all!
PS: As you might have noticed, I removed the picture from my sidebar, and intend to replace it as soon as I can with a picture of me wearing a head covering.
