Today was my first day back in the office since last Wednesday and boy was it rough to get back into the swing of things!  Adrian and I both took Monday off from work to have a day to ourselves to recover from the wedding festivities.  What should have been a day of sleeping in and eating strawberries in bed turned into a day getting vaccines for Africa and opening up joint checking accounts and credit cards.  But I guess these are all the nitty gritty details of getting married once all the glitz and glamour is over.  :)  At least we have the honeymoon to look forward to in June!  (We timed it so that we're there during the Great Migration.)

As for my outfit today, I wanted to go with some jewel tones.  Jean had written up a color theory post recently and so I decided to put her suggestion of pairing neighboring colors together.  I never would've thought that royal blue and teal would work, but after today, I have definitely changed my mind!  This is definitely going into my book of tricks for future Color Brigades!  ;)
