So, as some of you may know, I’m getting married next year! I am all kinds of excited about this, my dress is due to arrive in the next couple of months, I’m going to buy my Choos this week and I’ve found a super funny reading for the ceremony – so ya know, all the important stuff is sorted 😉
But the closer it’s getting the more I’m finding myself stressing over the small things, and not in a bridezilla way, more an ‘I can’t breathe and think I’m having a heart attack’ kind of way. Stress is a mother fudger, that’s all I’ll say on that matter. It’s even been taking me away from writing and reading, two things that I absolutely love! I’m determined not to let it beat me though, I am woman hear me roar and all that jazz ha.
The thing I have noticed over the recent months though (okay 12 months lol) is that a lot of women do get VERY intense with their planning. I’m now in a circle of friends that are engaged to my other halves friends (you get that, I’ll give you a second to process what I just said……..okay? I shall continue) and their fiancées are hardcore! I’m talking 24/7 wedding talk, from the ribbon that’s going around their cake to the first dance song. Of course the first dance conversation was all very cryptic from this bride to be in particular – ‘it’s available on iTunes, has a version with a male and female artist as well as one with just female, the female version is the main version, it is quite well known but not to everybody and is nearly 6 minutes long.’ My head hurts from it all.
The added bonus of my current state is that it is brilliant inspiration for a new book, providing my friends never find out that they’re the inspiration or that might make for a very tense conversation! I’ll keep you posted on that one.
So, if you wondered where I’d been or why I’ve been so quiet, that’s your answer. I’ve been in wedding hell. We have three weddings this year and the first one was last week, it was perfect and heart warming, I shed a tear when she walked down the aisle and it was all very magical….until I partied a little too hard and hobbled away from the dancefloor with a blood blister on my toe and was greeted by dirty bedding at the hotel that we had to replace at 1am. Grrrrr.
For now though, I have a small break from weddings and am going to catch up on all the reviews for books I’ve read. I’ve also got a guest post tomorrow on This Chick Reads but I’ll pop on over and share the link tomorrow.
Sweet dreams my lovelies
