two hearts that beat as one.


My life is changing. Fast. It's hard to believe I am writing these words....but I am getting married. Today. It was almost a year ago that my life changed completely. My boyfriend proposed, getting down on one knee, and sweeping me off my feet. It was the best day of my life. Since then, my days have been spent planning, packing, worrying, wondering, and looking ahead. It has been a whirlwind to say the least. 

When we got engaged, July seemed like a lifetime away. Somehow, it snuck up on us. Me especially. Trying to juggle work, writing jobs, wedding planning, fittings, social obligations, finding a place to live, packing up my childhood room? It was a lot to handle. An awful lot. Even as I write this, I keep thinking about everything that needs to be done. Like unpacking everything. Paint touch ups in our new apartment. Getting my hair done. Making sure my nails look perfect. Oh, and that whole getting married part! 

I am excited. Not so much for the ceremony. (I am not a fan of people staring at me all day long. Or speaking in public. Or someone else take my picture.) But for the beginning of our new life together. I am so incredibly happy to have found the perfect person for me. For all of the joy, laughter, and special memories the future has in store. I am excited to be with him. Whatever life brings our way.

On that note....I am going to be taking a mini-blogging break. Today is the wedding ceremony. Following that, we are heading off to Disney World for our honeymoon. (Something else I am super excited about.) So, if you don't see me posting, commenting, or being active on social media, it is because I am busy being a newlywed! I will be back to posting on a regular schedule as soon as I get settled and return home.

Thank you all for your love and support!
