Please, please, please go add http://www.blueskiesphotoblog.com to your reader.

Head over and check it out quick. I might have posted a few wedding pictures, even. 🙂

A new normal

Greetings from the old married lady.

Oh wait, I’m still only twenty-two, but I am really hitched. The wedding went of without many problems. At one point, the preacher accidentally coughed right into the microphone, scaring everyone in the church, but that was really the only mishap.

Everything else was perfect and we had quite the party. I danced and danced until my feet felt like they were going to fall off. The food was delicious and my face hurt from smiling.

And now, I’m married. Colby and I have been walking around since calling each other “hubby” and “wifey,” because we find it so entertaining.

I’m ready for the new normal. I’m not quite sure what that is, but know I’m ready for things to slow down for a bit.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I’ll post pictures sometime later. Right now, I’m going to cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie with my husband.

The big day is tomorrow. My wedding. The day I’ve dreamed and prayed about for months. The day we will official be a pair- legally bound together and all.

I can’t believe it’s finally here. Where does the time go? I mean, really- our eleven month engagement seemed to drag by, but then it was suddenly flying and I could barely catch my breath.

Everything is ready. Dresses are steamed. My grandmother made a beautiful cake. The reception area is decorated perfect. The church is clean. Gifts have been given out. Everyone knows the plan (I hope).

Tomorrow probably won’t go exactly the way I think, but I know that it will be an amazing day that I will remember for the rest of my life.

I will post pictures as soon as possible. There will be a ton, but I’ll get them all up here at some point. Say a little prayer for me, friends.

Enjoy these pictures from the last several days:

Another mountain climbed

Another chapter in my life is finished. I am now, officially, a college graduate.

After three and a half years, countless tests, numerous papers, and a several late nights I am finished with my undergraduate career.

Honestly, I feel strange. Much like my high school graduation didn’t hit me until school started the next year, I’m not sure it’s all sunk in yet. I mean, I’m really done? How can that be. It seems like I just started the other day. In some ways, I feel like a scared eighteen year old, wondering exactly where my Comp I class is. At the same time, I know I have grown into a strong, independent women.


An independent women who happened to have a rockin’ GPA, by the way. Oh, an independent women who made it all the way across the stage without tripping and falling. In heals.

(That is actually the real accomplishment, friends.)

In five days I’ll be a married women. How completely bizarre is that?!

I’ll check in as often as possible.

(Please forgive me for any typos made in this post. I also survived my bachelorette party last night.)

A link that will change your life

Lately, I’ve been suffering from insomnia. Crazy bad.

I go to bed, but my mind just keeps going. All. Dang. Night. I make “to-do” lists, I write papers in my head, I think about little details. It’s so ridiculous.

Tonight, I found an amazing website. I’ve always liked fml and textsfromlastnight, but this newest link is even better. Check out:


Seriously, it will change your life. I was laughing so hard I was crying by the third page… And that is honestly just what a crazy stressed girl needs sometimes.

(Be prepared for some profanity. Just a warning.)

Enjoy lovelys. I’m trying to get around to all your blogs, I promise. There is just sooooooo many that I am behind on.

Well, hello December. How did you sneak up on me?

I’m alive.

November seemed to fly right on by me. It’s amazing how that happens when your life is totally stinkin’ insane.

But I survived. My projects are mostly completed, all my photography clients have their pictures, the wedding stuff is coming along quite nicely and I should be able to survive the next twenty-one days.

Can you believe it’s only twenty-one days?! Holy smokes. I’m going to be an old married women before long.

We had our shower a couple of weeks ago, where we received a ton of amazing presents.

It took my a full eight hors to wash all the plates/dishes/etc and put them all up in the cabinets. There were boxes everywhere!

Oh my

But now our house is more like a home. And our plates are totally the coolest thing ever.


Finals start next week. I’m over them all ready. I mean, I’m a Senior. I’ve been through this jazz way more times than I can count. (Or seven times. Whatever.)

I feel like I could go on and on forever, but I’m going to stop. I’m here. I’m alive and I hope to be checking back in from time to time.

I can’t wait to catch up on all my imaginary internet friends lives.

Time out

I need to take a little blogging break. Everything is okay, I’m just overwhelmed with school, my business, and wedding planning.  My life is just too busy right now.

I’ll be back ASAP with lots of news, I’m sure.
