And I'm Back!!!!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. It’s one of those things: once you stop and lose momentum it’s really hard to get back on the horse. Well I’m making a run for it…and I’m back. I can’t commit to everyday or really even once a week. We will just take it a day at a time and see how this goes. I’m not going to lie, I was a little bit inspired to start writing again after I saw Julie and Julia. I also got a sweet note from a high school friend who enjoyed my writing. Comments are motivating!

Well since I’ve been away, life has been a bit of a whirlwind. Since getting engaged I feel like I’ve been flying at about 500 miles an hour. From pre martial counseling, lots of travel ( work and fun), wedding planning and Gen Mills I think I have a couple full time jobs! Despite a crazy schedule, wedding planning is off to a great start! We have a date set – April 16th in Austin at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. I’m so excited and wish it was tomorrow! After setting the date, I really started to enjoy wedding planning. One of my favorite things to do is look at wedding blogs. They are so inspiring and it is so fun to see all of the creative and unique ideas that people come up with to make their day one-of-a-kind. My parents have been a huge help during the whole process. I think they are truly saints! They have given up so much time and energy to help make our day as special as possible. I hope they are having fun in the process too! I also have THE DRESS!! My mom came in for the weekend to Phoenix and we explored a couple of boutiques here. We had a great time and picked after 3 days of shopping. I’m going to keep the details to myself because I really want it to be a surprise for Blake, but if any of you ladies are interested, I will send you a link! She didn’t cry the whole time (I was so proud) – I shed a couple tears thinking about Blake seeing me for the first time. Ahhh I can’t wait to be his wife!

Blake has also been a huge help. I’m so glad he’s not totally adverse to the idea of planning the wedding! He’s working on helping us choose a band as we speak. He actually has quite a few opinions about things…that’s my stylish husband-to-be for ya. We also have a couple photographers in the works and are narrowing down our catering options. I’m starting to work on invitations with my lovely friend Jordan and also have some leads on Florists. Any and all suggestions welcomed for any Austin resources! I’d like to think we are ahead – but really I don’t want to get complacent about it. I have a list about a mile long of DIY ideas that I can’t wait to start working on! Oh so fun!

I’m absolutely loving being engaged. It’s just such a wonderful season of life. So much to look forward to, to plan (I’m such a planner) and just happy to be in love and be certain that I am going to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. So so so fun!

Off to pre-marriage counseling tonight….can’t wait to learn more about each other and myself. (I’m trying this new introspective thing…more to come!)

I went to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center back in April and thought how perfect it would be for a wedding, especially that time of year. Hope planning continues to go well!
