I may hold the record as the world’s shortest hobbyist. I get interested in something for maybe 5 minutes (long enough to create this blog, I suppose…) and then I’m over it. But in some ways, I’ve never been that interested in my own wedding. Other people’s weddings? Sure, those are interesting, but I didn’t have to plan those.
I started this blog because I felt like I needed to be excited about my own wedding. But over the short course of this blog, I’ve come to believe it’s ok to not be excited about your wedding. Crazy, huh?
Sure, I’m excited about making George my husband. I love him to pieces. He is my rock, my partner in crime, my soul mate, but I don’t really care that much about a wedding. Sure, I want a nice dress and some (gluten-free) cake, but I don’t want 5 bridesmaids, 100 guests or a boat load of debt.
So, where is this all going? In short, I probably won’t be blogging my wedding much anymore. I just don’t like it very much. Plain and simple. After all, I believe in the sunk-cost fallacy. But I do enjoy this blogging hobby. In the future you can look out for book reviews, style posts, recipes, and whatever the hell else I want to write because… wait for it… THIS IS MY BLOG!
So how did I become so liberated? I read, I researched, I did what good librarians do. Here are some links that have helped me:
