It’s Been a Whale of a Time, But It’s Time to Go

Y’all, I don’t want to go. I feel like there are still things I could tell you. Like, I never got to brag about how I managed to successfully pee without any assistance, even with my giant ball gown. I didn’t tell you how MOH Leah almost burned a bridesmaid with her handheld steamer. I didn’t get to tell you about the stupid piece of fabric that I kept tripping over all day and how my mom later discovered that it was just tacked on and not an original part of the dress so we could have just removed it.

But”¦our wedding was only one day, and it’s time for me to move on. It’s time to enjoy all the awesome parts of married life, like eating an entire pound of bacon in two days (not like we did that this week or anything”¦).

Hive, thank you for allowing me to share our wedding with you. You all are just fabulous. I can’t tell you how much all of your comments mean to me. I read each and every one, and they absolutely always bring a smile to my face (unless it’s something negative, and then I’m sad. But then I read a nice comment, and I smile again!).

My first experience with blogging was here at the ”˜bee, but I’m having so much fun that I just can’t stop. My new blog has no theme, other than “stuff that makes me happy.” So if you want to read about stuff that makes me happy (which is guaranteed to include sparkly things, cute animals, and yummy food), then pop on over to my new blog, Polka Dots and Extra Frosting (two things that make me very happy).

If I ever figure out how to re-create our fabulous tissue/crepe paper flowers, I’ll be sure to come back and let you all know. (I keep getting messages asking me about them, and I wish I could help! I will figure it out!)

But until then, I think it’s time to say goodbye. (I’m actually getting a little teary! I never thought this day would come.) I love you all! Thanks for your kindness, your comments, and all the little stories that continue to make me smile!

    Ack! I’m going to miss reading your posts! I, too, got teary-eyed reading this farewell post. You were my favorite blogger and I started reading your posts midway through your recaps and got so hooked that I had to go back and read ‘em all!!!! I love your hilarious, playful style of writing. You are a great writer so don’t stop blogging! Cheers to a happy, bubbly marriage!
