taking it all in

17 Jun


I feel like the next six months are going to be a whirlwind and I want to stay present so I can enjoy all the fabulous things that will be happening. I feel so damn lucky. It’s a bit like living in a dream world at the moment. A dream world that I have worked really hard to create. It wasn’t too long ago that I felt like I was living in hell. Everything felt confusing, overwhelming and I felt alone in it. Seriously, twenty-eight was a really hard year for me. So, I don’t say “I feel like I’m living in a dream world” lightly. I feel tremendously grateful. The next six months are going to be filled with beautiful memories and events. Starting with bringing home our new puppy in twelve days. I know we are probably in for a bunch of sleepless night and frustrating days but I am still so excited. I think raising this little guy is going to be a fun time for us as a couple. An intro to parenting, if you will. Then in early July, I will be celebrating my 31st birthday. Gosh, I really can’t believe it’s already time to blow out birthday candles again. Considering thirty-one isn’t an epic birthday I’ve decided I just want a little afternoon BBQ with a few friends to celebrate. I’d also like to think of it as Frank’s coming out party! Then in August I am heading to Sedona with all bridal party to celebrate my bachelorette. Having all my favorite woman under one roof for a long weekend sounds like pure bliss. I’m sure it will be a rowdy but very funny few days. In September my Mom, Step-Mom and maid of honor, Taline, are hosting a bridal shower for me with all the amazing woman in my life and then in October Brian’s family will be hosting us another shower. Then on November 9th we get hitched! I can’t even imagine what that day is going to feel like. I’m sure something like being bathed in love for twenty-four hours straight. Lastly, in December we depart for our honeymoon- most likely to Bali & Thailand. AMAZINGLY FABULOUS WHIRLWIND SIX MONTHS. I’m so excited for all of it. I keep reminding myself to stop and breath and take it all in. I’m guilty of having a personality that always wants more and is constantly riding myself to work harder but, I’ve decided (with the help of my lovely therapist) that I  want to take a break from that type of behavior and instead soak up this life of mine that is so lovely right now. Soon we will be returning from our honeymoon, it will be January, Brian and I will be married and back to reality but until then…
