Reader, I Married Him

we're married!!

The day was magical, no doubt in part because of all the wonderful vibes and love sent along by the Internet. This is one of the very few pictures we have so far---taken by Sean's best man, Tony, who was, as I understand it, quite a hit at the wedding---but I thought I'd post it quickly from the Melbourne Library (what, isn't the library the first place you'd go on your honeymoon?) just in case you were wondering how it all went. As you can tell, it went pretty splendidly.

Congratulations!

You look great (happy, newlywed, ready for married life). Now leave the library and explore Australia, and enjoy your first couple of weeks as husband and wife.

All the best.
