I don’t know about you guys, but sometimes I just need a girly girl kind of dress. In the past, I’ve been known to use dressing up or beautifying as a coping mechanism for when I’m stressed out or sad. So what if I only wore this to go out to our neighborhood Mexican food place and then went home and changed into jammies? I just really, really needed to wear this dress. I’m happy to report that my coping mechanisms still work after all these years because this outfit made me feel like a pretty princess!
The past couple of months have been an emotional roller coaster for me. Wedding planning has proven to be a beast that I was not at all prepared to deal with. I would really love to write a post about my struggles and my thoughts on wedding planning, but I have never really opened up like that on my blog before. I worry that this may not be an appropriate place to truly get real with my feelings. I would never want to change the direction of this blog away from clothes/shopping/fashion, but I also recognize that this is my own space on the internet that I can use for whatever I want!
For now, I am happy to report that the search for a wedding venue and date is officially over! George and I will be getting married on June 19, 2015. Getting over this first hurdle feels like a huge accomplishment. I know we have plenty more decisions to make before the wedding, but right now I am just taking things one day at a time.
