We haven't been on our official honeymoon yet BUT we did take some time off work after the wedding to relax a bit.
The sad thing is that our week of relaxation turned into a week of laundry, cleaning, thank you note writing, wedding slide show making, wedding picture editing, oh yeah and work somehow snuck in there a bit. I couldn’t help myself!
I got a little upset the last few days of our “staycation”. The week had flown by and we had yet to do anything for ourselves. I felt like we got the shaft! The wedding was crazy busy, and now our little staycataion was quickly coming to an end.
We had to right our wrong so we headed out for an afternoon romp around the Japanese Gardens…..
No to do list
If you live in the DFW area the Japanese Gardens are a MUST! Trust me you’ll want to thank me after you go! I’ve been out there 4 times this year and I’m still not tired of it!
I took a million pictures of the Koi. Not only are they beautiful they’re funny too! Who would have thought fish could be funny. They do this little pouty mouth thing that makes you want to give them all your money.
Doesn’t this little guy look like I just stole his puppy?
I found myself apologizing to him but I had no idea why.
Wish I could tell you the name of this flower but I can’t. It sure is pretty though!
This stopped me in my tracks!
I loved how the sun was shining through the trees. It almost has a dreamy look to it.
Yet another pretty flower I can’t tell you the name of.
Warning: Don’t look at the next picture for too long
especially if you have motion sickness!
I think this is kind of neat but I can only look at it for a few seconds.
How I did this: I focused on the end of the tunnel, bumped my shutter speed down, and zoomed in while I snapped the shot. A little trippy but neat.
We stayed at the Japanese Gardens until they kicked us out and ended our night with a big feast at Pappadeaux. Pappadeaux is our favorite restaurant and where we met 11 years ago.
While our little staycataion ended way too soon I was happy that we took some time for ourselves; even if it was just a day.
