Saying "Goodbye" to Saying "I do"

After three years and two months of Saying "I do",  planning a wedding, attending, then recapping thirteen weddings, connecting with a huge network of brides and meeting people I never dreamed of meeting, the Saying "I do" chapter is over. I've ridden the newlywed bride train as far as it will go, and it's time to get off. I've been struggling with closing this up for some time, and  even started blogging at elsewhere for awhile, but I just wasn't catching my stride there, trying to make it something I wasn't, and not being true to myself.
I really enjoy blogging, I love having a place to capture and record all the great moments of my life and having them here to look back on. I've always been that way: my mom and dad have 20 scrapbooks I made just of High School to prove it. Maybe it was a way for me to cling to my past...I think it was just a way to preserve it. Luckily, blogging is faster and cheaper than scrapbooking, and so, I am not done with blogging, just blogging elsewhere.

Any wedding related posts will still be posted here (we have 3 more weddings coming up in the near future), but this will not be where I blog regularly. I was not modest about linking here on facebook or really anywhere I could, and for the future I'd like to keep a little bit more of a low profile, which is why I'm not linking to my new blog here. I'm  not going completely off the grid, if you were a regular follower, you'll be able to find me, and most of you already have! (edit: Here is my new blog:

Thank you to the followers, the commentors, the friends, and the one time visitors (holla to this post which keeps a steady stream of visitors every single day!)

If you are just coming here for the first time, sorry you missed me! You can read about  my wedding here.

I am also still regularly blogging for Russo's on the Bay! 

Bye for now!

Oh my! Didn't expect to choke up over your good-bye! So many memories! This was never a place to "cling to the past." It was a place to record your personal history and reflect on it.A place to share and grow! Thanks for sharing your joy!

Thanks for being there. As you know I was unable to post a comment on the new blog you created but I don't know how much you're posting, last time I checked anyway. Best of luck and enjoy ;)
