Well, better late than never!? It’s no secret that the entire wedding process had me pulled in every direction under the sun and my sweet blog was left in the dust. But because the post wedding activity depression is upon me, and I want to relive every moment and also perhaps since the end of my sweet sweet summer is eminent, let’s go back to June and party with my Flock of Beezy’s shall we?
We are married and the chaos this year has brought with all of the wedding planning is finally behind us!
Desi and I were married in my childhood home in the yard on July 22 with 250 of our nearest and dearest. The entire day was a dream come true and the only words we can use to describe the day are: perfect & epic. I may or may not have ended up in the pool with my dress. Like I said epic.
The honeymoon is officially over as Desi headed back to work today and we are ready to get into our rhythm and continue our fairytale.
I’ll leave you bums with just a little sneak as I patiently await more pictures along with you.
We have felt your aloha throughout this ride, we are truly blessed.
I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day and allowed yourselves to reflect on the sacrifice so many before us and after us make to ensure we live in a free country that stands by the Declaration of Independence and allow us a holiday weekend to officially kick off summer.
I was showered with so much love this weekend, it is overwhelming. My mom, sister, cousins and aunts, as well as my Flock of Flamingo bridal party threw me the most Salty Bum perfect bridal shower I could have dreamed of. It was more than my little aloha heart could handle.
This is it! Go time! There is less than 7 days until Valentines day, a day where us women are expecting diamonds, flowers, chocolates, silky fabrics & to be wined and dined from our men.
I want to be fulfilled.
I want a job that I love.
I want a job I can be creative in.
I want a job I can help people in.
I want a job I know I am a impacting others with.
I want a job thats fun.
I want a job that screams, me.
For me, I am feeling like this dream job can become a reality through this blog. For a while I have just felt off and for a while every post on here where I really open up and lay it all out, there is a bit of sadness mixed in.
So what do we do to fix this?
I have had so much positive feedback on my writing and what I have been creating and absolutely nothing makes me happier. So I am going to embrace this full force!
I am going to dive in deeper into my blog. I am going to make this page a much bigger priority than I have been.
I am going to just take the damn picture. You all know what I mean. I want to do more fashion style posts or photos of me in front of some super dope graphic wall and tell you all a story to go along with it, but I have been too scared. I am scared because I don’t feel worthy enough to “pretend” to be a rad blogger. But ya know what!? Let’s look at the list I just wrote out, about what I want. So girl, if you want it, ya gotta go be it.
What I need, is your help. What do you want to see? How can I help you? What do you want to hear about and what do you get excited about? Tell me what you love about your favorite blogs and why you keep going to their page time and time again!
I love you all and I am so glad you are on this journey with me.
I am so excited to share with you all, my salty bums, that our proposal story was selected to be featured on HowHeAsked.com!
My hope is that our story warms someones heart, and gives them hope that their prince charming is out there waiting for them. It wasn’t too long ago that I was reading posts on How He Asked, daydreaming about a boy I met in high school and what he was up to now.
In the midst of the stress of wedding planning and the routine of everyday life, it was refreshing to relive our special day and get excited for the events to come.
I am truly blessed.
Happy New Year bums! I truly hope you had the most magical holiday season full of family, love, and that holiday libations always filled your cup.
2016 was just a weird year for me, full of excitement and joy yet entangled with me not feeling like myself. Mixtures of gaining weight and lack of self confidence but having the promise of the man of dreams committed love to me left me feeling all outta whack.
I can’t believe that Christmas is only four short days away. This is the last Christmas season that I will be living in my family home, it’s a bittersweet blessing so I have been very mindful to embrace every bit of Christmas in a big ol’ bear hug! Continue reading
One of the chicest and bum friendly Christmas decorations that instantly merries up any room, is living garland. I really have such a love affair with the texture, the smell, the way it instantly gets you into the Christmas spirit. I especially love seeing it displayed so sweetly outside Trader Joe’s or the Christmas tree lot, such a special home town feel that is hard to find in todays world.
