Wedding Week! - Quotes

Well, J and I have been married for 6 months as of yesterday!  And it still feels like yesterday, to be honest.  I figured it would be fun to do a themed "Wedding Week" since I love sharing those stories and looking at those pictures. 

Getting engaged, planning a wedding and getting married was such an incredible season in our lives. It was filled with such joy and stress and love and everything in between.  That year-long period of planning seemed at times to fly by and all I could remember thinking was, "Savor this.  Enjoy it.".  And then there were the other times....  In any case, I look back on our engagement  wedding, parties, family and friends with such joy and love.  We are truly, truly blessed and looking back makes me smile and my heart happy.

I'm obviously in LOVE with quotes and I knew that I wanted to incorporate them into our wedding somehow.  My first find was a guest book which I wasn't originally going to do, but as soon as I saw it I HAD to have it.  Every other page has a quote on it!  Fitting, no?  Then there was the question of how to incorporate some of my favorite sayings into our actual reception without over doing it.  A friend helped me make frames for the tables at the reception with quotes that I felt described our love. Nothing too in your face, but they were totally unique, really funky and I loved them.  Still trying to figure out what to do with them now, though!

These were our wedding day quotes:

"True love never lives happily ever after - true love has no ending."
- K. Knight

"If the essence of my being has caused a smile to have appeared on your face or a touch of joy within your heart, then, in living, I have made my mark."
- Thomas L. Odem, Jr.

"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage."
- Lao Tzu

"You and me together, we can do anything, baby."
- Dave Mathews Band (an excerpt from "our song")

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love."
- Dr. Suess

"For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.  It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul."
- Judy Garland

"Piglet: 'How do you spell love?'
Pooh: 'You don't spell it, you feel it.'"

"He's more myself than I am.  Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."
- Emily Bronte

 “I don’t know if I should congratulate you or console you.” - Craig “How about both?” - Me This was a conversation in our kitchen earlier this week. After a year and a half of weekly therapy, I had my last session with my therapist Tuesday. Not because I was over it or because it wasn’t working or because he retired. Nope. Because we got to a place where we could both say I’ve got the tools I need to move on. I have to say that there is no timeline for therapy and every situation is unique. I moved on from intensive therapy with my therapist because that it was worked for ME. I am certainly no expert and I have a feeling this isn’t the end of my therapy forever, but I do know that my experience with the right person allowed me to heal in ways I literally never thought possible. And it gave me the experience of a healthy “goodbye”. I was never prepared for that, so when we set an end date (not-so-coincidentally my Nanna’s birthday), it was hard to process. No one talks about

November 19th

There's apparently something about November 19th and changes in my life... 2 years ago: moving out of the ex's house 1 year ago: announcing that I was making the big move to beautiful Colorado Today: planning my next big adventure! After 2 years of major life changes and constant adjustment, I'm finally feeling like a settled human being. So, I've decided that 2018 is going to be the year I push myself physically and mentally. 2 half marathons are on the schedule along with the most exciting part: a multi day bike adventure with an assisted athlete here in Colorado in support of The Kyle Pease Foundation !!  I've learned enough about myself that I will not agree to push myself hard physically for any length of time unless there is another person who is behind the WHY. Doing this in partnership with another athlete who necessarily wouldn't be able to otherwise, is enough to get my ass off my couch and get it done! Details are still being worke


When you're estranged from not one, but basically both parents, the heaviness of that can still be palpable. Most days, most weeks, and months even, it's fine. I've learned to navigate questions like, "Where do your parents live?" or the weird feeling in my gut when someone says, "Oh, my mom sent me this from this favorite place of mine." I've learned how to adjust to Mother's and Father's Days by staying off of social media and doing something that makes me happy like getting out into nature. Some of these times are better than others. Here's the thing: whether or not the choice to go no contact with the two people who were supposed to show you all the basis of love was good or not, is incredibly difficult. Because social media is what it is, yesterday was apparently "International Daughters Day". It didn't bother me so much yesterday, but this morning wasn't off to a great start and for some reason, I felt agitated. I
