So, it's been a while.
I kind of gave up on blogging for a second.
I've still be reading all of my favorites, but posting just fell on the back burner, and I guess that burner wasn't even turned on.
Will is still working full time and earning his Master's at night. I'm working two part time jobs and trying to be wedding planner of the century. Add in trying to plan vacations, two dogs, renovating, and what used to be a pretty active social life, and time is tight.
It's enough to make you cray. My release has been wine, not the MacBook.
All the life craziness has made me realize I am not really stopping to smell the roses as much as I should. When you're always go-go-go, it doesn't leave you time to stew on the fabulousness of your life.
I was reminded of this last night when basically everyone I know got a call/email/text from me announcing my wedding photographer had posted a few of our engagement pics online.
I was so excited because A) I didn't expect to see the preview for a week and B) they are awesome!
I never take good pictures. Like, ever. So this was a real treat. Sharing my excitement with all my friends really made me remember why I wanted to blog. So I can remember these moments of pure happiness. Look back on them, cherish them, and share them with those not around to experience them the first time.
Our photographer is amazing. We have been so truly blessed to book THE most caring, experienced and just awesome wedding vendors and Brenda @ Pottinger Photography is no exception.
I also had a consult with our wedding make up artist prior to the pics to make sure my face was in tip top shape. Mollie @ BRIDEface is also amazing and really took my look up a notch from what I normally manage to pull together myself.
Most importantly, seeing these pics reminded me of how much I love my fiancé. Experiencing the day to day grind with someone is good for making them seem "normal". Part of the routine. I never ever want to take for granted that I have been blessed with one of the good ones.
Here's the preview. Can't wait to see the rest!
