The Unicycles GTFO

Well, my recaps are done, and I can’t think of any other posts to write. So, I guess my time at Weddingbee is over. All right, see ya, hive! It’s been real!


Just kidding, I think you deserve more of a good-bye than that. Which is to say, I’d like to write a few more paragraphs. You know, milk it for all it’s worth.

For months after my wedding, I kept thinking about what a daunting task recapping was/would be, and how I would never be done talking about my wedding, and how I was kind of embarrassed to still be elbows deep in wedding photos this far out from my wedding day. People I know in real life are all “Really? You’re still blogging about your wedding? Wow!” all judgmentalish. Thus, now is the time for me to GTFO.

That said, now that my final post is here, I’m getting a bit choked up. So feel free to come over here and perform the Heimlich at any moment.

I discovered Weddingbee four whole years ago. I knew Mr. Unicycle and I would get married someday, but I also knew that day was pretty far off, since we were still in college. But I decided then and there that I would try to be a blogger when my time came, and I can barely believe that I not only got accepted to blog, but I’ve also finished the job. It’s been an amazing experience sharing my wedding planning and recaps with you guys. I wish I could measure the affect Weddingbee has had on my life the past year and a half. Not only did your feedback make my wedding even more amazing, but the chance to blog for and interact with this community has been so enjoyable.

I had my own blog before I got engaged that, at one point, was on the verge of dying a slow, anonymous internet death. But now that Weddingbee has renewed my love of writing and blogging, I’ve started writing again. No internet death for this blog! You can follow along at Karisa Tells All. I’m not a fashion blogger, craft blogger, mommy blogger (dear God, NO), or other niche blog. I just write about things that make me laugh, and hopefully they’ll make you laugh too.

Thanks for letting me share my wedding with you. Now it’s time for me to roll on out of the hive. See you later!

    At least if you have to go, there’s the other blog to follow – I’ve already checked it out and bookmarked it. Thanks for your hilarious and very “real” posts – they have been a pleasure to read, and often were the one thing that truly cracked me up on a bad day. Best wishes to you and Mr. U for a long and happy life together – keep telling your story!

    NOOOOO!! I was just thinking yesterday, “What am I going to do when Unicycle stops blogging??” Okay, actually I guess I’ll just ready your other blog. But I will miss your posts on the Bee. (And you should totally pursue your writing dreams, because obviously everyone here thinks you are a fabulous writer. So… please write a book. Because I want to read it.) :)

    Noooooo! Don’t go! (This is not creepy at all, right?! ) You are my favorite. You kept me laughing when there was absolutely nothing to laugh about. You were always for real about the crazy ish that surrounds weddings. Your relationship with your Mr. reminds me of the way I interact with my own hubby (humor, FTW!) So glad you’re going to keep writing but it just won’t be the same without you. We want more! Can’t they give you a job here or something???

    I know I am late to this party, but this is how I feel about you leaving- “We want more” commercial

    =) I got married more than a year and a half ago but have been following the bee to see the rest of your recaps! I guess it time to finally go. Thank you for sharing your story with us! Will definitely pop over to your blog from time to time.
