Writing again

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

Hi everyone.

Lately I’ve really missed blogging. I don’t have a lot to say, but…sometimes when I do it’s nice to know that I have a place to do so. So I created this blog to just kind of…kick things off. Christmas is fast approaching and maybe as a New Year’s resolution it will be to write more. Well–Write more, lose weight, get married. You know, no big deal. Just small things.

That’s one thing that I’d like to write about for sure. My wedding! The boy and I got engaged on our five year anniversary. (Five years, holy smokes.) That’s a lot of time looking at his mug. But you know, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I knew as soon as I met him in that day he wasn’t just some guy that I thought was cute. There was an instant connection that couldn’t be ignored.

But I could talk about him for ages. I’ll save you the hassle of listening to me go on about how we were soul mates since day one. Anyway, I have a lot of planning to do for the wedding. I started writing a guest list and looking at places to have it. My co-worker suggested a great idea that I think I’m going to put into practice. Especially because it’s probably the most affordable option I’ll find for venues. I’m going to have a Rapunzel themed wedding. Lots of purple and gold touches. My bridesmaid dresses will likely be purple. Ahh, I’ve been dreaming about planning my wedding for ages. I have so many great ideas and I just hope that when the date comes (Date TBD) that I’ll have the money to make everything happen.

What does that mean? Well…saving. Being more frugal. (No more random purchases for me!) Which should be good anyway, most of my unimportant purchases happen to be clothing which, let’s face it, if I’m going to lose weight, I shouldn’t be buying a bunch of clothes in my current size. A girl can dream. I also would like to sell a lot of the stuff we have in the house at the moment. Just…stuff we’ve acquired over the years. I’m not really even sure how it happened but we ended up buying more furniture than I’ve ever had in my life. (All from this really cute antique shop in the area. Seriously–like all of our pieces.) I don’t like how mismatched everything looks, either. It looks like the antique shop threw up in our living room. Which–some people can pull off. Not me.

I think that this will be good for me, though. Blogging. I like getting these thoughts off my chest and posting them here well…somehow holds me accountable? I’ll probably make another post tomorrow about the Christmas season. I’ve been having a hard time getting into the spirit and I want that to stop. Christmas is a happy time and there’s no reason that I’m letting myself get stressed out over presents. But that’s not what Christmas is about. Anyway, that’s a post all on it’s own. So that’s that. A blog for my thoughts.

You’ll see a theme of different images of fairy lights as they tend to inspire me and make me think dreamy thoughts. Dreamy thoughts. Is that a normal saying? Probably not. Anyway! Thanks for reading all this way if you have. Check back tomorrow for my post on Christmas.
