WW: An Unconventional Honeymoon

Hey guys!

Boy am I glad that today is more of a photo heavy post. If you haven't seen on Twitter, California is trying to kill me via my sinuses.

We pretty much always live in a drought, but this year has been the worst in a long time. It only rained a few times this year and our plants are ridiculously dry. This week it's averaging 100 in SoCal and we've got those Santa Anas blowing all over the place. My sinuses decided today was going to be a day filled with a pounding headache and dizziness.

Luckily, my honeymoon was the complete opposite, although different than most.

A European honeymoon isn't pretty traditional; but spending it with your husband's family members that he's never met is unconventional. But it made for our perfect honeymoon!

We spent a lot of time relaxing, some family time, some time for just the two of us and some epic dance time. Oh, and did I mention that we fell in love with The Netherlands?

They probably are not in order, but I think that makes it more exciting :P

London Heathrow :) 

Omgosh, so bright! 

Groningen is gorgeous! 

Us with Iman's cousins! 

Bicycles everywhere

Inside the law school

This literally was a secret garden. I love it

We didn't go IN because of the long line, but we went to the outside of the Anne Frank Huis

He's a butthead sometimes

Iman is certified to pour beer, now.

King's Day is one of their biggest holidays!

Onesie Moustache Kisses are my favorite

Yes, we got matching shirts for King's Day

We went to visit Iman's little cousins in these outfits and we got so many honks on the street. His 5 year old cousin did NOT like the moustaches

I love this picture of us! 
Basically, we woke up late every day (time change and just relaxing), would eat lunch with his family and decide what we would do for the day! We stayed in Groningen, which was wonderful. It is a student city, so there were a lot of people our age.

In addition to staying with Iman's family members, we stayed our last night at a hotel in Amsterdam.

We went to Amsterdam twice, and it was so much fun! There was so much to see.

We also celebrated King's Day - which was the first King's Day celebration in a long time. Previously, it had been Queen's Day until a king took over.

Our honeymoon wasn't very romantic. As I mentioned above, though, it was perfect for us.

Where are you going on your Honeymoon? Would you ever do something like this?
