Today I’m going to try and distract you with these pretty pictures. Is it working?
Ok fine. Let’s address the elephant. It’s true. I totally abandoned this blog. I didn’t mean to do it. I swear. It just happened. Six months ago I had grand plans of keeping track of everything- giving you witty, whimsical wedding planning updates as we checked things off the list. But things did not go as planned. Turns out, planning a wedding is hard work! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved every second of it. (well, almost) But I’ve invested every bone in my body to it.
Though I feel a little guilty for letting this ol blog sit on the shelf untouched for so long, I don’t regret it. By investing myself fully into the wedding planning process I’ve learned SO MUCH and had many new adventures! (Including but not limited to- how to negotiate a contract, stain wood, pencil in my eyebrows, manage a budget, mitigate family drama, can jam, make decisions, watercolor, design an invite suite, conduct an interview, bake cookies in the shape of my face and put vinyl on EVERYTHING) Ok, let’s be real- I already knew how to put vinyl on everything. So although you haven’t seen it, I’m still creating all the time. The only difference is I’m creating mostly just for me and my hubby to be. It’s been a welcomed break.
That being said, sometimes I still have things to share! Today is one of those days. And who knows, after the wedding I may have a super surge of creative blogging energy and things might pick up just where we left off. All will be revealed. Till then, please feast your eyes on our amazing engagement photos shot way back in January by the wonderfully talented Melissa of Marble Rye Photography! We took these by our home in Playa Vista. We spend a lot of time biking along the bike path so it was important for us to include it in the session. Now we’ll never forget it! We were so lucky to shoot when we did because a week after we took these photos a huge storm came and destroyed the dunes, covered the path with sand and littered the beach with trash. The beach gets a little crazy in the winter, folks. Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
