You lived in different countries? Wow. Where? I think that's so cool how you met. I loved reading this meme. Although I was a little blue to hear you never had a honeymoon. It's never too late though is it? :)

Hubby lived up here in Ontario, Canada (what i affectionally refer to as the great white north), while i was down in Annapolis Maryland.

And I'd love to have a honeymoon, but at this point it would have to involve kids or happen once they all move out..and OD swears she's NEVER moving out
