Mrs. Panther’s Final Farewell

Well, it’s been more than three years since my first post here on Weddingbee, and now, I think it’s finally time for me to say goodbye. I can’t believe you guys let me stay this long!

This is going to sound cliché, but I can’t tell you all how much Weddingbee has meant to me. We all know the wedding-planning process can be stressful, and when things got crazy for me, your sweet comments and support got me through. Blogging here reminded me how much I used to love writing, back when I was a dorky eight-year-old writing short stories about alien abductions. (Let’s not talk about that.) It taught me how much I love doing and documenting over-the-top DIY projects. It led me down a path that I’m still following today.

Not too much has changed for Mr. Panther and me in the two and a half years since our wedding. I’m still rocking the low side chignon for every formal occasion; Mr. Panther still looks good in a suit; etc.

In 2012, we bought a cute little house, and we haven’t stopped DIY’ing since. I’ve been recounting all our projects, decor, and disasters on my lifestyle blog, Glitter and Goat Cheese. Please come over and follow along! It’s fun!

So, I guess the only thing left to say is: Thank you. Thank you for having me. Thank you for reading my posts. Thank you for commenting with words of encouragement. Thank you for sharing your stories with me.

I’ll miss you all so much!

    I’m so glad that you came back and shared your recaps, it’s been great to follow along. If I didn’t know any better, I wouldn’t have thought your wedding was over two years ago. It was very timeless and beautiful!
    Best of luck to you and Mr. J!
