Hi there. It’s me, Meg. You may have forgotten about this little blog by now. Or maybe you haven’t and you’re wondering whether I’ve taken ill or I’m off trekking around the world on grand adventures. Neither is true, and I’d probably rather you’d forgotten about my little bit of internet writing. It has pained me, knowing that I started this so vehemently, and yet I allowed it to fall by the wayside, in favor of Netflix mostly.
In any case, I’m back. I was a bit sidetracked for the past year or so. You know, getting married. It’s amazing how much of my brain was consumed with white roses and wedding bells, but I’ll admit that it happened. I don’t regret it. But now it’s time to move on. Time to write and create and explore again.
So just to catch you up a bit:
- I bought a house. It’s in the suburbs, near my parents, where I never would have imagined I’d end up. But it’s beautiful and perfect and we love it.
- I went to several cousins’ weddings.
- I took a vacation to visit my brother in Phoenix, Arizona.
- I went to Corpus Christi, Texas three times for work trips.
- I got married. It was absolutely amazing. More on that later.
- We went on an amazing honeymoon to Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic.
- I changed my name, and I’m still getting used to it.
Yep, those are pretty much all the big things.
This past year has been a whirlwind, to say the least. Planning the wedding in 15 months wasn’t actually all that hard and time-consuming. I was just obsessed. I love weddings. I always have and I always will and I’m not ashamed of that. So I allowed myself to fall into this blissful year of wedding-everything. I watched all the Say Yes To The Dresses and I pored over Pinterest and I made spreadsheets and I did crafts and I designed stationery. And I loved every minute of the distraction. So while I regretted not writing more and not blogging, I was also enjoying this one time in my life where I could be a bride.
I didn’t feel like I could write it down here while I was planning. So now I want to tell you everything. I want to relive every moment.
I want to use this blog to take me back to a time when I was obsessed with writing. I want a chance to get my thoughts and experiences down and connect with the people who are close to me (because, family, I know you’re the only ones who read this), but maybe also someone who stumbles along here and can relate. That was always my intention, I think maybe I just didn’t state it outright.
I know that this blog needs some updating. I started a new job about a year and 3 months ago, almost to the day, and I realized just today that my About Meg page still had my old job listed. Maybe my job isn’t even important to you anyways. I am more than the work that I do from 9 to 5. And you also won’t find much about that job here, even though I love it. There are more important things than work.
I want this blog to be about the things that are important to me. I want to explore topics that interest me and things that I am passionate about. I’m still figuring out what all those things are, but that’s okay! This is the journey. I hope that you’ll join me if you are interested in learning a bit more about me or if you have the same interests or experiences. But if I am not fascinating to you, I’m okay with that, just please don’t troll on my site or leave nasty comments. We may have differing opinions, but we’re all people here, so let’s be nice.
