"In the past two months, we have made not one, not two or three, but FOUR major life changes. I quit my job, we moved out of New York City, we got married on a gorgeous summer day and then, the grand finale, we moved to an island in the Caribbean. This last change was not an easy decision nor was it made quickly. Alex was presented with the offer from his company and we agonized over it for months. We had our life, our routines, our jobs and close friends. The thought of being a plane ride away from my mother hurt so much that I almost couldn’t breathe. Uprooting our lives was so scary and making the decision even more overwhelming was that I was planning a wedding at the same time! After so much agonizing and some incredibly valuable and wise insight from my amazing wedding photographer (Love you, Mary), we decided to take the leap. Once I knew that we were going, and I cried my eyes out while telling my mom, I became solely focused on our wedding. I planned every single tiny moment of the day. The biggest fear I had was the one detail that I had zero control over: the weather. I told everyone that if it rained, I was going to run into traffic. I wasn’t kidding. No amount of superstitious beliefs would change my mind. Thankfully, no one needed to run out onto Route 25 on August 5 to save me. Aside from the millions of daily prayers I said, I have no idea how we got so lucky. The weather on our wedding day was nothing short of stunning. We had pure sunshine, zero humidity and a picture perfect sunset. The two months between the wedding and our move were chaotic to say the least. Alex and I tried our hardest to say goodbye to as many friends and family members but it just wasn’t possible. However, on August 5, all of the people that we love were in one place. It was incredibly humbling and heartwarming to realize that so many people rearranged their schedules to be with us. I hope that we see each wedding guest (my mom already has her plane ticket to spend Christmas here) step off a plane at the Cayman airport to visit soon!"
