It’s good to be back.
I took some time off from blogging this month to focus on wedding planning and some new life goals. Quentin and I have started pre-marital counseling and we’ve been seeing a financial planner (two things I HIGHLY recommend doing if you’re currently engaged), and I’ve been devoting a lot of headspace to what my life is going to be like after October 11, 2014. Things are going to be pretty hectic between now and the wedding, so while I doubt I’ll post as often as I used to, I don’t want to go another three weeks without connecting with you guys =)
In the midst of all the wedding craziness, I was able to get away with some close friends for a weekend on South Beach. I had a really great bachelorette weekend! It was fun and relaxing and a good time with great company.
I don’t know if most people have these feelings during their bachelorette parties, but…I think I’m finally starting to feel “grown up.” I mean, I’m getting married. One of my closest friends (we’ve known each other since we were 10-ish and lived together in college) is married and pregnant (as you can obviously tell!). About half of my girlfriends are in serious relationships. Two of them own their own homes. Our jobs have real-life titles. I mean…who woulda thought? During the weekend we joked that our conversations just aren’t what they used to be when we were 21. Now we’re concerned about the economy and thinking about the right time to have babies! It’s a strange thing to see yourself in that moment and realize that you’re an adult.
I’m really looking forward to this next phase in life! And I’m so blessed to have women around me who are encouraging and loving and honestly supportive. I want the best for these ladies, and I know they want the same for me. And I want the same for you, too! Whatever stage of life you’re in, I’m hoping that when you read this blog, you can feel that someone out there is rooting for your success and never-ending happiness =)
