Last Call

You guys, do you know how many months I’ve been sitting on this post, procrastinating like a pro and not hitting “publish”? I’ve been writing it and rewriting it in my head, thinking, “Oh, maybe I’ll tell them about how I forgot to make table numbers,” or “I never told them how I freaked out, refused to wear my veil, and shoved it into my purse.” But the truth is, time is passing, life is moving forward, and I’m tired of talking about this wedding. The real, honest-to-goodness truth is that, when you’re on the other side of this fantastic event in your life, you’re probably going to be like, “Get that wedding album outta my f-ing face, let’s sit on the couch and get accidentally hammered while we watch The Biggest Loser and not think about escort cards.”

And that’s being married, my friends. That’s true love.


Married life is extremely busy.

I’ve had such an amazing time sharing our wedding plans with you. Having these posts and your sweet comments to look back on is one of the greatest perks of being a bee. But I’m happy and ready to pass that privilege on to our new bloggers. I’d say it’s about time. Come on”¦you know you’re already wondering what the heck I’m doing, popping up here today.

But I won’t go too far. You can keep up with Sparks and me on my blog, where I like to talk about my crazy freelancing jobs (and also about a whole lotta nothing). I hope you’ll stop by once in a while. And, who knows, maybe I’ll pop in again to say hello.

For now, though, it’s time for me to go. Love you, bees! Thanks for all the fun!


Mrs. Sparkler (and Sparks and River Dog)

    It’s like you read my mind! That’s exactly how I felt when the wedding was over! (I still feel that way, but let’s just ignore the fact that I still check WB daily.) Bon voyage, Sparkler!!

    Miss Sparkler- Thanks for sharing your story, beautiful wedding, and pictures of your dress (btw omg that dress. I still get dress envy!) with us. It was so great to follow along in your journey as we were only married a week apart. I felt a kindred spirit in you as we were going through the same events around the same time and met your husband similarly to how I met mine. Happy almost year and a half of marriage bliss. You will surely be missed!!

    I really hate to see you go, Mrs. Sparkler! Your wedding was so much fun to follow, and I look forward to keeping up with you through your blog. Also, your dog and mine are almost identical twins!
