I've been pretty absent from the blogging world these past couple of months, and although I still don't have that many followers, i'd like to look back one day on this busy time and remember what all was going on.
A few things happening right now:
  • We're officially a little over 2 months away from the wedding and I couldn't be more excited! Wedding planning has surprisingly been an ease to me and i've enjoyed planning it. With that being said, I have encountered a few "bumps" along the way. I've learned the harsh reality that i'm not going to make everyone happy, but one of my best friends reminded me the other day that this is my day and not to lose sight of the fact that i'm marrying the man of my dreams. All these minor annoyances won't matter in the end. Lesson here is that i've got to stop letting the little things get to me.
  • I've made a "what's left to do" list for the wedding, and ummm yeah it's pretty intense. Needless to say, I have NO summer and the rest of my Saturdays (11 until the big day!!) will be filled with tying up last minute details and making about a 1000 trips to Florence (where our wedding is going to be held)
  • I'm LOVING my new job. It's pretty different than what i'd thought I would be doing with my career, but I have absolutely no complaints. I'm communicating a lot with the people I work with as well as our corporate offices and i'm learning a lot about the world of advertising in the TV business. I really love the people I work with and they keep me busy, which I like because it passes the time at work quickly.
  • S and I have decided to make Columbia our home for right now. We both have jobs we love so we're content with staying here for the time being. That doesn't mean that we may necessarily settle down here, but we're both SO happy and we're excited to stay close to friends and family right now. We're currently looking for a house to rent in Columbia. Our lease at our apartment is up the week or our wedding, so we'd like to be moved into a new place prior to that. We've got some appointments with property managers to check out some places this week *fingers crossed!!!*
  • Lately, I feel like i'm not the only one with some life changing things going on! A few of my close friends (including one of my bridesmaids) as well as S's sister just got engaged and i'm sooo happy for all of them! Even though i'm sad to see my own wedding planning coming to an end, I know i'm reaching "that age" where all my friends will be experiencing this exciting time, and i'm here and ready to offer my help on anything they may need. Wedding planning really is so exciting to me!
  • My bff, MH just moved to NYC. We all knew this day was coming, she's such a born-to-be, city sleek, fashionista and even though I already miss her, I can only imagine how much she's loving NYC right now. Plans for a trip to visit her in the fall are currently in the works!!!
  • My brother and his wife are busy preparing themselves for the arrival of their TWIN girls!!!! The sis in law is due early fall and she's already been shopping away for all the cute little dresses and things she'll need for the girls. I can't wait to spoil them myself.
Such an exciting (and BUSY) couple of months ahead!
