Many of you may not know this but I started this blog two years ago under a different name, with the intention of it being a wedding planning blog. Things obviously changed and while I have a ton to be grateful for now, I can't help but think that today we would be coming back from our honeymoon. I would be Mrs. C. I would still be on a wedding high over our super fun outdoor wedding last Saturday, 11-5-11. It was the perfect date to me and I often prayed the weather would allow for us to be outdoors and as it turns out, the weather was perfect.
It's silly to dwell on this type of thing but being in blog world has introduced me to so many of you wonderful ladies, some of who have had gorgeous weddings recently or are getting married soon and it's a reminder that I would've been part of that Fall wedding club too. But I know the reasons why our wedding was postponed and I'm actually grateful we postponed it or else we'd be in a stressful situation right now. AND I'd be getting married 6 months pregnant. Not drinking at my own wedding? Um no. That was my entire reason for having a huge blow out. ha!
So now that the wedding date and honeymoon dates are behind us, it gives me the opportunity to have a new focus on what life is like NOW. And my life right now makes me ridiculously happy. We're still happily in love, we're buying a house and we get a baby girl soon. I do believe everything happens for a reason. (Maybe that reason was to give me a built in little flower girl since I could never decide on one? ;) I can also say I'm grateful that I got my perfect proposal back in 2009 and at least got to go through the craziness of wedding planning for a bit. But things are perfect as is and I know our wedding will come at a much better time!
P.S. If you're signed up for me and Ashlee's Fall swap, the package deadline has been pushed to Monday since the Post Office is closed for Veteran's Day. So don't stress, you still have time! :)
