Has it really been four years since I last wrote? That is so hard to believe but I guess like everyone life has a way of getting in the way. The last 4 years have been filled with love, laughter and of course some sadness and struggles. Life in all its forms.
As I sit here on Christmas Eve looking back over the past 4 years I feel more content and happier than I have ever been. I have learned to roll with the punches better, not perfectly but better. I have also continued to enjoy the little things around me.
I guess the biggest change in the past 4 years has been my marriage to the love of my life. Probably THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE! I’m sure that is so cliché but you know what it is true.
I learned that planning a wedding can be frustrating no matter how big or small. Even though we had a very small ceremony at our home I still went into my perfectionist mode and needed all things perfect. Though there really is never complete perfection. A lesson I am continually learning. I must admit it was as near perfection as I could have imagined. Sunny weather, in March, in the Pacific Northwest! Really?!? Who plans an outdoor wedding for March in the Seattle area? Me that’s who. The most important thing about our wedding day is we were with those we love and it was a celebration! In my mind that is what a perfect wedding is.
I have included some of my favorite photos from our wedding. The ones that make me smile every day. Let me know your thoughts on weddings, favorite parts of your wedding or the struggles and successes in your planning. I would love to hear them.
Until next time, which I am really hoping won’t be 4 years from now, enjoy this amazing thing called life!
