Some Kind of Wonderful


My dear friend Amanda got married this weekend. I am happy and kind of sad to announce it's the last wedding of the summer. I happy because I love weekends where Jonathan and I can stay home, but I am bummed because I seem to only see my girlfriends at weddings. Many of my college friends are spread all over the SouthEast and we all seem to have other things that have taken over our time. (Maybe those things are called life.)

I am truly happy with my life, don't get me wrong, but on weekends like this last one I am nostalgic of the days with very little responsibility. At this point my mom will chime in and say, "what do think will happen when you have a child?" I'm not saying I would change anything or stop moving forward, but it's bittersweet to think of the past when I am with my friends. I miss waking up and the only thing I was responsible for was heading to class and remembering people's birthdays. haha!

Today, it's different and in a good way. I think all those years of college jobs, juggling school, extracirricular, friends, and family has prepared me for now. I miss it, but I am also grateful. I am blessed to have made great friends who I can pick up right where time left off. I am blessed to have met my husband in school and to be married to my best friend. (tear) I am thankful for the opportunities I have been given by my parents, because they sacrificed so much to get me to this very moment.

Check out a couple of the photos from the weekend...















































































So not as long as I thought, because I am late for work. (My coffee and real world calls me back.) I will be home at 5:15 where the real world laundry and dinner awaits me. I think tonight I may get my team mate to do dinner instead ;)

  1. What a lovely wedding Katie. The Bride looks gorgeous as do you! It looks like you a have a great group of friends and it is sad that as we get busier with our lives it is harder to catch up as often as we would like! Have a great week! xx

  3. All of my friends are spread out around the country, so when Christmas comes around or even 4th of July we really cherish the time all together, being away from the people that know you best is so hard! the wedding looks amazing though, such gorgeous friends you have!

    And yes, we would get in loads of trouble shopping together - dangerous!

  5. I was at a wedding this weekend too- I think I have 5 or 6 more this summer- I guess that's what happens when you are 23, right? And I can relate about not having a lot of time to see friends- many of mine are in the same city and it's still hard to find time! BTW you and your hubby look cute in your pic :)

  8. SEEEEEE THIS! is why we need to have a yearly beach trip! Eventually we'll ALL BE MARRIED (okay, I'll probably be last) but then we won't have "weddings" to get together at! SO LET'S BE PROACTIVE! :)
