Long time no talk.
The wedding came and went, my name has changed, and the storm is calling down.
There are a few things I guess I need to address about the process...
Let me start by saying the day of wedding was amazing. The day itself beautiful, the wedding party got a long well, there were no confrontations, no one was out of dress code. Most people showed up on time. Including my biological father that I had not seen since I was 17, I'm now 27...
I was truly blessed and happy with the day.
Leading up to it however was one of the most depressing, stressful, and lonely feelings.
I felt like the process was so stressful partially because my wedding planner was off her A game, we decided to move to a different state and start new jobs less than 6, months away from the wedding 🥲
I know, I know. We played ourselves with all of that going on at the same time.
Both Sterling and I both lost friends permanently during this time that were in the wedding and I would be lying to you if I said I was over it.
In person my bridal party was great but many people (only 3 to be exact) made it to the Bachelorette party due to personal reasons and I was crushed. I honestly felt that everyone who I thought loved me didn't.
Obviously, that wasn't the case but, it felt like it.
So many people asked me would I do it again. I would in a different place and time when my mom was still alive but, it was the best in that moment so I am grateful.
So what now?
We start the home search process, life with this new integrated family, and make each other as happy as I can.
