I’m sorry for not writing…

I have had so much going on in my personal life I haven’t had a lot of time to write or to wedding plan. My family lost a wonderful person today… and I just do not have the time right now. I will be back up in a few days. Thank you all, and I will see y’all on Wednesday!


where there is love, there is life

after a what seems like receiving a million wedding invitation samples in the mail… I have finally found the set I am in love with and what totally fits our theme without being too matchy matchy. image



our colors are pastel pink, mint, pastel yellow, peach, pastel blue, lavender, and white; but mainly mint, pastel pink, and white. here’a what the original invites look like….




I just think that the mint/light blue gives it a little more character and Ryan says he likes it… He may just be saying that cause he is tired of hearing about invitations! haha

We are spending the weekend just us and I have vowed no wedding talk, no planning, and just the two of us. I think it will be nice and it will be nice to go without looking at anything wedding related.

Lately I have been super emotional about everything dealing with this wedding, I was looking at bridesmaids jewelry and parents gifts and started crying; then on the way home I was listening to some of the songs Ryan and I put in our wedding playlist and cried the whole way! I am not quite sure what has gotten into me, every song I picture our wedding in some way… I am just so excited and so scared at the same time. I know that I am marrying the love of my life and the other half of me that I truly think God made especially for me. He is literally a God send and I cannot and hopefully will not ever have to live my life without him. I sincerely hope that everyone finds the kind of love that I have found in Ryan. Everyone deserves true love.

a happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short.

as I sit here, in the middle of the night, looking at bridesmaids jewelry I find reality hitting me. For real… I am getting MARRIED! I am no longer going to be a “single” woman. Granted I haven’t technically been single for years now, but soon I will be a married woman! I’m not sure what to think or how to feel… other than excitement!

I was watching Marriage Boot Camp: Bridezillas…. lord I hope that isn’t what my marriage turns out to be like. Probably not since I am not a bridezilla by any means. These women are just straight up CRAZY! I feel like I get dumber after watching those shows.

343 days until the wedding!!!!

you have to kiss a lot of toads before you find a handsome prince.

I would dare not say that yesterday went down as one of those “wonderful” days in the wedding planning process….

Ryan and I woke up early so we could drive down to Conway, SC to meet with the lawyer that handles the rentals of our Venue 2. I spoke with her on Tuesday and told her that I would we driving down, that I wanted to make an appointment, and that it would take me approx. 1 hour and 30 minutes to get to her office from my house. I told her that I would be at her office waiting at 0845 and that I would have cash in hand to pay the deposit. If only things had really gone that smoothly…

We wake up at 0630 and are out of the house by 0715. When we were 45 minutes from Conway I sent the lawyer a text letting her know we would be there within the hour; she responded about 20 minutes later telling me that the venue I wanted on the date I wanted had been booked on Tuesday, the day I called to schedule our meeting. Initially, I was upset… but I reassured myself that our original wedding date was in May so if she had something available then I would be content with that. But… if there was nothing in April or May I was prepared to blow.

We arrive at the office at 0830 and waited on her until almost 0900. We ended up paying for a date in May, which happens to the exact date we had initially chosen for our wedding day. So with that being said… We 100% have a date that will not change at a venue I will not decide against. I am elated with my decision to change venues, I know I would have been devastated had i never found this place until it was too late.

With all of the changes I am now getting married in Conway, SC in 344 days! I still can’t wait!
