We’re the Wallabies, and this is our story, of how we went from this:

Hive, you are simply fabulous. I can’t tell you how much I savor each and every one of your comments—they never fail to brighten my day. When Mr. W and I got engaged, I never would’ve imagined that I would end up this involved in an online community full of such smart, creative, sweet girls (and guys…?). It’s amazing to find an outlet to discuss things like table numbers and cake flavors. Beyond that, you gave me so much confidence and encouragement, and I couldn’t ask for more.
To all you bees who are still planning your weddings—this is what kept me sane:

Okay, I can’t resist. One more.

Wedding planning can be stressful, fun, overwhelming, silly, exciting and everything in between. The best advice I can give is to not take it too seriously—there is so much more to look forward to after the wedding, and even if things don’t turn out perfectly (chances are, they won’t), you have the rest of your life to enjoy with your partner. Almost four months have flown by since we tied the knot on that beautiful day in November, and each day just gets better and better. I am truly, madly, deeply in love with that man, and he rocks my world.
Now that we’re married and we got that whole big Wedding thing out of the way, we’re able to focus on other things. Our careers. Adopting a puppy (eeee!!!). Saving for a down payment for a house in a better neighborhood. Lots of serious, and a whole lot of not-so-serious.
But before I peace out, a couple of orders of business:
1. Houston bees—I would love to do a bee meet-up! Who’s down? I’ve started organizing one on the Houston local board.
2. I’m blogging about newlywed life and our (attempts at) green living over at Life in Green. I’d love it if you stopped by.
It’s nothing fancy, and I’m no Bloggess or Pioneer Woman, nor was I ever the craftiest bee in this hive. But, there seems to be a gap out there in girly blogs focused on sustainability, and I’d love to get the conversations started. Come say hi when you have a chance
Weddingbee readers, bee bloggers, mods, and lurkers—thanks for everything. I’ll miss you all dearly, but I promise to pop in every once in a while.
