Friends, we need to chat. I want you to know, things might be a little different around here over the next few months. With wedding planning on the brain, it’s been really hard for me to focus on much else! So instead of fighting it, I plan to embrace it and share the process here with you. Don’t worry, I’m going to keep on posting fun DIYs and recipes, but plan to see a lot more wedding details. The thing about a lifestyle blog is that it’s fluid. It follows the inspiration and life of the person creating it. Remember when this thing was mainly focused on personal style? My how things have changed! When I have little ones, I predict there’ll be more DIYs for kids on here. But regardless the focus, I promise to keep busting my butt to listen to you and post interesting, creative beautiful content. Sound good?
Today I’m sharing a bit about our venue hunt. Nick and I knew right away that we wanted to have an outdoor wedding. I fell in love with the idea of having the ceremony under a large tree. So, we’ve been searching Southern California for the perfect one. These are just some of the places I’ve found. This week I started visiting some of the more local venues with my mama. The pressure is definitely on to lock down a space and set a date. It’s crazy how far in advance these places get booked. Like, crazy. I keep telling Nick that once we settle on a venue and date, I’ll relax... but he assures me I won’t be relaxing until after the wedding. There’s a good chance he’s right. But I’m really loving every minute of this! Even if it makes me a crazy person. It’s worth it.
P.S. You know I’ve been thinking about our wedding hashtag since before we got engaged...the winner #HolaGiancola Yep. In less than a year, I’m going to be Jamie Giancola! Craziness.
