…time passes really quickly when you’re planning a wedding, get married, and then go to Hawaii for nearly a month!
It’s been 4 whole months since my last post! I can’t believe that–almost half a year!
That was definitely not intentional. Mostly, it was STRESS of wedding planning, and then travel + editing client photos.
So, obviously a lot has been going on–the biggest of which was that I got MARRIED!
Words can’t describe how it feels to FINALLY be married to the man of my dreams!
I really meant to blog the whole excitement and prep for the wedding, i.e. showers, bachelorette party, etc…buuuuut that didn’t happen.
So here is a quick overview of everything that went down before I walked down the aisle:
Stock The Bar Party
So there you have it — the whole shebang.
Minus the wedding, of course, but that’s another blog for another day.
I am now in my last few weeks of nannying for my beautiful girls and I’m trying to soak in as much of their sweetness as I can.
The last 4 years of my life has been spent watching them take their first steps and speak their first words, having dance parties with them in the kitchen, and pushing them on the swing. It’s difficult for me to imagine a life where I wake up in my bed and hear silence, rather than the sound of their little feet running around in circles upstairs.
On the other hand, the last 7 years of my life have been spent away from the man that I Love more than anyone in the entire world. Since the very beginning we’ve been away from each other, always ending each phone conversation with “I miss you.” Twice, we were separated by oceans through military deployments–forcing me to spend my days, and especially my nights, with an inconsolable ache in my heart. A feeling of being incomplete until I was in his arms again.
Despite the tears running down my face, I know it’s time.
It’s time for us.
Time for us to have dance parties in the kitchen. Time for us to snuggle up on the couch and watch movies. Time for us to wake up every morning and not only hear each other’s voices, but actually getting to see each other as well.
I know it will be different, and it will be difficult, to say goodbye.
But, little by little, I will learn to let go.
I will watch the girls grow up, from far away.
And I will keep them in my heart,
as I grow up too.
