Out of Office ... and On My HoneymoonsteemCreated with Sketch.

A funny thing happened last week ... I got married! It's not something I ever imagined I would do, and certainly not something I ever imagined I would talk about using mushy terms along with mushy photos, oh well...

The fact of the matter is that I met someone who was beautiful, smart, funny, kind, you get the idea. I had to do whatever I could to convince her to stick around ;). So we got married last Friday and it was an absolutely amazing time. We're sure some things must have gone wrong, but it felt like everything went perfectly.

Planning a wedding is insanely stressful. It was one of the hardest experiences I've gone through, despite the fact that she planned pretty much the whole thing! But the end result was worth it. It was unreal being surrounded by all of the people who love us the most and just celebrate life with them. The wedding itself was almost incidental. It's really just an excuse to get your favorite people, even those you haven't seen in years, all in one place and then introduce them to a massive group of other amazing people.

Off to Africa!

Now that the wedding is behind us, we're going to head to Africa tomorrow for some safari and beach. That means that for the next 2 weeks I won't be available in my role as Head of Communications for Steemit, but @elipowell has assured me that the team will keep communications forthcoming because we've got a lot of exciting updates in the pipeline.

See you in 2 weeks!

Yup, that's us

The United States of Africa...has a nice ring to it! But then there'd be 2 USAs and we know how that will go down. ;-)

Lol. Nah, it's simply Africa. You could specify by saying you going to Ghana in Africa.☺️

I live in South Africa and have been fortunate to travel to a few of my neighbors. I love being in Africa. It has a wildness and reckless abandon to it. And the joy of Africa is something our friends over the pond can drink from.

Congrats to the groom and bride. Have a great honeymoon and safe travels 😊

ha, congrats to you both

Congratulations! Enjoy the time off and come back with new enthusiasm. Exciting times for you and Steem
