(a sneak peek of our wedding venue!)
Oh, hi. It’s been nearly three months since I last blogged.
I’ve been thinking a lot about this little space lately. Should I scrap it and start over? Should I call it quits altogether? Should I just pick up where I left off? Yep, let’s try that one.
Life, you’ve been crazy lately. My time has been consumed this past year with helping plan my best friend’s bridal shower and bachelorette party, as well as her baby shower. This has resulted in tons of time spent DIYing the hell out of some party decorations. So much cutting. So much folding. So much planning.
But, I do love it.
Once the baby shower was over with I had grand plans of returning to the Internets a bit more, adding to my Etsy shop, and all of that good stuff. Do you know what happened?
I got engaged.
After 8 years of dating, Kevin proposed to me while on vacation in Portland. While walking around a beautiful park, he grabbed my hand, and the next thing I knew he was down on one knee. It was quiet. It was simple. It was perfect.
I always thought I would react a certain way when/if he proposed. I expected to have a breakdown of epic proportions, complete with a lot of ugly cry. Instead, I stood there in shock, repeatedly asking “Seriously?” The tears came later as I called my parents and grandparents to share the news. And, they still come whenever I think about it for too long.
So, now a wedding is in the works, and life is sure to get even busier. I’m not going to apologize for letting life get in the way. I would much rather be out there living it than holed up at my computer more than I already am. Still, I miss writing about anything and everything. I’ve been feeling the need to express myself more than usual lately, probably because of the insane number of emotions I am experiencing at any given moment.
Will I write regularly? I’m going to try to. Will I try to focus on one main thing? Hardly. I think that’s what’s always stopped me from blogging regularly. I have too many interests, too many things going on at one time to have a central focus, and I think that’s OK. If anything, those interests should serve as inspiration more than a hindrance, and I’m going to keep that in my heart as I slowly settle back into this little space of mine.
I hope life is going well for each and every one of you.
