My goal when I started this blog was to average a post once a week (since that is what is realistic for my life) and I think I have done a pretty good job of sticking to that. Through all the ups and downs of the last couple of years, through my mom’s illness and death, I somehow managed to keep blogging. It gave me joy, the routine of it was good for keeping me going and it has given me a place to talk about things. I certainly have not gone this long without posting though, but there was another death shortly after my last post (my beloved dog Charlie), and now my wedding is exactly one month away as of today! So life finally won out over blogging.
I’m okay though. Matt and I are so excited for the wedding and we have finally had a chance to work on some of the visual details, which has been super fun and I can’t wait to share it all with you. This has been such a bittersweet year, that I fear I will be crying tears of joy all day at my wedding, just because I will be so happy to be with my loved ones. We will probably just collapse in a heap for our mini-moon in Maine… and that may be just what we need. My plan is to come back from the wedding refreshed and ready to start this new phase of my life.
So I guess I am taking a blog break and I think it is in order. Thank you for all your kind words and encouragement over the last couple of years. Your comments have guided me through some pivotal moments, from grieving the loss of my mother to planning my wedding dress, so I thank you all for that! I look forward to sharing all the wonderful things we made for the wedding (like the invitations, my dress and decorations and such). So see you all back here in a month or so!
