Hi All! And by all, I mean my Mom after I tell her I have started blogging again. I am back after a four year break. I know, four years is a long break. Let's just call it a hiatus. I was on a hiatus. I took four years between the ages of 22 and 26 to grow up(a little bit), learn some, love some, and by some stroke of luck, watch almost every dream I have ever had come true before my very eyes. Before you all start asking, no I did not meet Brad Pitt, have him fall madly in love with me, and move to Greece to run a cheese farm. But I did fall madly in love with someone better. Yes, bloggies, I met the love of my life. And in three weeks, he is all MINE, for the REST OF HIS LIFE. That's right, I AM GETTING MARRIED!!
Among the other amazing things I did in the last four years, I met, fell in love with, and got engaged to the most amazing, funny, generous, kind, understanding, loving, and handsome man I have ever had the pleasure to know. Brian. He is my perfect match. The peanut butter to my jelly, the yin to my yang, the olive to my vodka. Well, I guess he could be the vodka because he hates olives. See! That's how much I love him. I am willing to change my metaphors for him!
So, why am I back you ask? I am here again because I was reading this AMAZING blog by this super funny girl named Lauren(read all about her here). Her blog is called Filing Jointly...Finally. And I love it. And as I was reading, I was thinking to myself, "Self, why have you not blogged? You love doing this also. You are funny. Go be funny with others!" So here I am to be funny with all of you, and share with you the day-to-day of the new life I am in.
And a thank you to all of my amazing bridesmaids, who are also my best friends. I love you all more than I can say. You are my support system and never judge me for my crazy and sometimes dramatic hijinks. I am honored that you have all agreed to stand with me as I marry Brian on what I hope will be the most beautiful and fun weekend we've ever had.
I will be back soon with many tales of the weird, the wacky, and the things that make me think, "Is it just me?"
