To Say I Do.

I got married!!

To my dearest friends and followers,

First of all, if you're reading this, THANK YOU so much for not giving up on me!! I know it's been a long time since I've posted anything on my blog or any social media, but what can I say, I've been a busy lady.

I finished school. I was working a job in a dining room in Oregon. I got promoted to an assistant supervisor position. I was in a long distance relationship. I was talking with a friend about the possibility of moving out of our current living conditions after the bustle of summer. That all changed though. David, the man with whom I had been in a relationship, came to visit me over the summer. It was the 4th of July to be exact. On July 5th, one year to the day since we had started dating, he got down on one knee and asked a question. I said yes!!

We knew we wanted to get married, so we didn't want to wait longer than we had to. We gave ourselves four months to plan the wedding. It wasn't easy. We were hard pressed for time. SO many things to get done, seemingly not enough time to do it all. Things seemed to be a mess, but in the end, it worked out. We researched a lot. We messed up. We made mistakes. We learned. We learned a lot. And we worked hard. 

I got the almost dream wedding I'd wanted. I had a wedding on the beach in southern California. I had the dress I wanted. I looked beautiful, if I may say so. XD He looked quite fine... We had our maid of honor and best man without whose help we could not have finished everything in time. We had AMAZING friends and family there to help us out with so many things, from our officiant, to our caterers, photographers, coordinator, etc. A huge thank you to everyone who helped us and supported us. I know we are both extremely grateful to each and every one of you for all of your effort and hard work.

And to my faithful followers, thank you for supporting me and reading. I know it's been a long time, but I'm back now. It's still me, with a new last name. I haven't written much lately, or done much of anything creative, but I want to change that now that the wedding is over and I've settled into my new home. 
I plan on posting maybe once a week, updating you on art projects I've been working on, the latest book I've read, something I've learned, a random thought I had, what's going on with my novel, and if I can't think of anything to write, I'll just update you on what my week was like. I want this to be my creative outlet. My creative space. 
Again, thank you so much for reading. Until next time...

Yours truly,
