Goodbye

 


After over a year of blogging, saying goodbye is hard. That’s why I’ve put off this post for over a month.

Some of you might remember my debate regarding what to do with my blog after the wedding. Well, getting married answered that question for me. It turns out that soon after returning from the honeymoon, I lost all interest in weddings. I loved my own wedding and my planning process, and I have no regrets (except not eating more of our yummy wedding food). I also loved the online wedding planning community and sharing ideas with my creative and inspiring fellow blogger brides. But if you’ve read my blog for a while, you know that I was never one to obsess over flowers, colors and dresses; so now that I’m married, I am more than ready to move on.

My next big project is focusing on my career. I’ve been working in finance for the past year and a half, and now it’s time for a change. I’m applying to grad school for a master’s in education with a focus on developmental psychology. Eventually I am hoping to get a Ph.D. and become a research psychologist. The application process is intense and I’m currently in the midst of half a dozen looming deadlines. So wish me luck – and if anyone’s in a similar field, I would love to hear some advice!

Planning and blogging my wedding has been an incredible learning experience and I am so grateful to every reader who joined me on this journey. If I can be helpful to anyone still planning or if you’d like to get in touch, please feel free to email me girlwitharing [at] gmail [dot] com

Thank you and good luck to everyone- I hope you have incredible weddings and even more incredible marriages!

Oh, and I couldn’t leave you without a few parting photos!
