Love Grows

For the record, I am a very lucky girl. And I need to remind myself that & appreciate it it even more…

I love the people with whom I share my life. That is where I find real meaning. Not in my job. Not in what I do. As much as I am glad to get paid every week, I know that what I do is not the only defining element to my worth as a human being. I can care & be good at my job, but at the end of the day it is just a job. You have to find other things you love in the world. Things that bring you happiness. Things that make you squeal with joy. If you know what those things are, then you can let everything else be exactly what it is without too much concern.

I am so fortunate to go home to my best friend everyday. I have, in a way, my own mini family. It truly gives me perspective– and not only that, but I still have my parents & sisters with whom I can talk everyday if I wanted. And often do. I have an entire network of wonderful people that enriches my life and makes it worth living.

And for that, I am sincerely grateful.

In other news, wedding planning is turning out to be an interesting creative adventure. I am enjoying it. Maybe a bit too much. Being a designer has its benefits but it’s also hard to stop thinking of all the fun things I can do to make the wedding that much more uniquely us. I’m definitely getting excited, although also still nervous. I am not the person to enjoy spotlights of any kind, but I know that nothing will stop me from having the most love filled day ever.

And as excited as I am to finally be a married girl, I am perhaps a little sad that there is but a month and a half left to being engaged. It’s a very nice part of life and it has gone by rather fast. I’ll have to make the most of the next 6 weeks…
