It’s That Time.

I’ve been staring at my computer screen for longer than I’d like to admit, trying to figure out how to say goodbye.

Hive, in the year that I’ve been blogging here, you have been the most incredible support system I could ever have asked for. You were there when I was stressing about choosing an officiant, you cheered along with me when I was insanely excited about our invitations, and you kindly let me vent when my guests wouldn’t send back their RSVPs.

I’ve received countless comments, PMs, and tweets from y’all and I genuinely feel like I can call each of you a friend. Your kind words have cheered me up on bad days, and your excitement over things that I know no one else would ever care about helped me stay positive when wedding planning got stressful. I’m so grateful for the time I’ve spent here, and I absolutely adore you guys.

It’s going to sound cheesy for me to say this, but blogging for Weddingbee has been life-changing for me.

I’ve found an incredibly amazing group of friends in my fellow bees and I’ve made friendships that I know will last a lifetime. I’ve gained a ton of confidence as a writer and I have reignited the love for blogging I had years ago. I will never forget the time that I spent blogging here, and I’ll always have a very special part of my heart reserved for the hive.

Mr. Cardigan and I have been married for close to six months now (!!) and it’s better than I ever could have imagined it would be. I find a new reason to fall in love with him every day, and we have settled into a comfortable and wonderful routine that I wouldn’t change for the world. I’m so excited to see what the future brings for us, and I promise to come back and keep you updated on what’s happening in our lives.

I might be saying goodbye for now, but you’ll be hearing from me again. I don’t know if I can stay away from the hive for too long, so I’m sure that I’ll come up with an excuse to pop back in every now and again. And in the meantime, you can always find me over at my blog, Love & Renovations, where I (and sometimes even Mr. Cardigan) blog about life post-wedding. Mr. Cardy and I just bought our first home, and we’ll be moving in in just a few short weeks ”“ so there will be lots of talk of decorating, remodeling, and life in a new town. I’m also on Twitter and would love to chat, so feel free to say hello anytime.

Thank you, once again, for being such an amazing group of people. I love you all dearly and I’m so, so, SO grateful that I had the opportunity to share my wedding with you. I’m going to miss you like crazy.

    Boo! :( Cardy you are my fav and the main reason I still read wedding bee after I’ve been married for almost 8 months and have already moved on to phase two (the hubby and I are having twins in the fall!) I still want to pop in and hang with you next time I’m in Texas. I’ll see you on your blog! <3

    Mrs. Cardigan, I’ve loved following your wedding! Your personality has come across so well through your posts (or at least what I’m assuming is your real personality), that it feels like I actually know you. I’m sad to see you go, but I’ve loved following along through your planning & your wedding!
