🍂 Hey ya’ll! I hope your week back to normal life after the holiday has been better than mine. I don’t know what it is about the bounce back after the holiday weekend that is such a struggle but, man, have I been struggling! I can’t say it’s been all bad, in fact I’m enjoying and experiencing one of the best moments in my life up until this point.
This time of year has been my favorite time of year for as long as I can remember. I know that sounds cliché, but it’s not for the reasons you think. Yes I love the holidays, but there’s something about the way the sky looks and the way the crisp air feels and smells. The fall leading into the winter has always made my heart feel warm and fuzzy. ♥️
This past Thanksgiving holiday made this time of year even more memorable and special for years to come. My best friend picked the most wonderful time to ask me to marry him!
I’m so excited to share that I’m getting married! 💍
It has been nothing but non-stop planning and details and colors since Thanksgiving. I’ve been tired and not able to sleep but all for good reason. I always imagined what I’d feel like when I reached this chapter in my life, and now that I’m here in the moment I realize that my daydreaming was nothing close to reality. Planning a wedding is a beautiful nightmare, for lack of better words. It is incredibly stressful trying to plan a wedding in this day and age. Everything is so EXPENSIVE! And I guess I forgot to include in my daydream that my personal debt would still be present in the midst of trying to pay for my dream wedding.
Even in all of that, I still have joy. I still have hope. And we will have a beautiful wedding. I get to walk side by side, hand in hand with my best friend. And even better than that God is walking before and watching over us. That overshadows any stress that rises up in my life; that is the beauty in what can be a nightmare of wedding planning.
I’ll be sharing every planning detail I can but until then, I want to reach out to all of you. Do you have any ideas or suggestions on real flowers versus artificial? What did you do at your wedding that was unique? Unity candle or unity sand? I’d love to hear it all.
