Happy Birthday "Saying 'I Do'"

This summer is just FULL of anniversaries, birthdays and celebrations!!

One year ago today, I started this blog with this first entry! It's kind of funny to read now. Back then, I didn't put nearly as much time and effort into my posts as I do now. Believe me, when I started this blog, I never expected to love it as much as I do. I enjoy sharing this process with others, as well as having a step by step documentation for me to look back on. I have learned SO MUCH about blogging over the past year and how interesting and huge the blogging world is!

I am very thankful for my loyal readers (hi mom!), my friends and family who follow this and some fellow wedding blogger friends I've made along the way! You all have traveled with me over the past year as Chris and I set the date, you also were with me as I started looking for my dress, then when I finally found my dress! You were there for me through my proposal video addiction, (Molly remembers that time well. She'd come out of her room at 2am to find me crying in the living room after watching these videos for hours), this was followed by my video save-the-date addiction. Then there was the arduous, but fun, task of looking for a band and a photographer at the same time. Those were a crazy busy few weeks, but in the end we were very confident in our decision. You were with us through registering, choosing my bridesmaid dresses, engagement party 1, engagement party 2, our one year engage-aversary, and now here we are one year later, and life is looking pretty darn good for me right now!

I'm excited to continue blogging up to, and including, our big day and so thankful for people who have supported and encouraged me to continue blogging through this process, it has been so fulfilling to me. I also feel like I have more and more to talk about every day as we get closer to May. There is just so much to do all of a sudden!!
