I never used to know how many hurting people there were. I never used to look behind the smiles. Honestly, I never used to care.
I never used to know what it meant to love fiercely. To love fearlessly. Honestly? I’m still learning how to love fearlessly.
But God’s been opening my eyes. He’s opened my eyes to the pain, to the hurt, to the half-smiles and tired eyes. He’s brought me people who aren’t perfect. He’s showed me how to be here, for the pain.
I have finally gotten around to beginning on this blog post series – a highly anticipated one, to be sure! I know y’all have been excited for it too. 😊 Andrew and I are pretty much writing it together – I wrote the first draft, and he’s editing and throwing in some other things. We’re so excited for y’all to read allllll the details of our unique story!
I greet you excitedly because EEEP can you believe I’m rambling about MY wedding I’m planning? O.o NOPE, neither can I!
Anyway, I thought it would be excellent to start a series on wedding planning because I imagine some of y’all are interested and also I’ll probably want to look back on it. So far, we’ve been engaged for about a month and a half and have gotten quite a bit done! So, without further ado, the progress thus far.
2019 was the most life-changing year I’ve ever had. Guess what? 2020 is going to change my life even more.
Looking back, if you told me what was going to happen in 2019, I don’t think I would have been too terribly surprised, because I think of pretty much everything. XD I’d considered the possibilities, but that’s just what they were. Possibilities. I had no idea what the future would bring. 2019 started out with the future being very much up in the air. 2020? 2020 has a lot of unknowns, but I know far more about it than I did about 2019. I am looking forward to so much this year.
What a year this has been.
This year has been the best and most life-changing year of my life. 2018, if you’ll remember from my review last year, was one of the hardest years of my life. These past two years have changed my life in so many ways. But 2019? Definitely the most life-changing. AND I’M NOT SURE WHERE TO START, HELP. What. A. Year.
Hello, my friends! (And Andrew – I KNOW you read my posts. <3)
I just wanted to pop in and say – wow. Thank you all so much for your very enthusiastic – and many! – responses to my engagement! Y’all are awesome and I think you guys almost broke the internet with so many comments. XD I am so, so excited to share about my life – as an engaged girl, planning a wedding – and next year, as a young wife! I can’t believe it. I can remember quite well when I first started blogging four and a half years ago, and I was determined to blog all the way through my changes. You guys have seen changes. I’ve gone from a super awkward new teenager to an engaged woman (who is still a teenager XD). And you’re going to see more changes, Lord willing!
OH MY GOODNESS, YOU GUYS. I have greatly anticipated this blog post! I am so excited, I almost don’t know what to say. But if you found out on my Instagram, the rumors are true – I. AM. ENGAGED. This is no prank, no test – it’s the truth and I am so blissfully happy!
*takes a deep breath*
I’m sure you all want to hear the juicy details, especially since most of you had no idea I was even in a relationship, right? So let me give y’all some backstory and tell you about the proposal, and then I’m planning to make a little blog series. 😀
