Hi!! I have been thinking about writing a post like this for a while, and today’s the day! Prepare yourself for some lovey-dovey-ness. You’ve been warned!
In a world where waiting to get married until you’re 30 is quickly becoming the “cool” or respectable thing to do, I’m definitely not a “cool kid.” While I totally get that a lot of people don’t find their person until later in life, I also know there are a lot of people who wouldn’t even consider marriage until later in life. Which is totally fine!!! I don’t want to come off as bashing people who wait to get married when they’re a little older. Trust me, I’ve read a lot of blog posts about finding yourself, becoming financially well-off, etc. being extremely important before tying the knot. I get it! Being a major planner, I completely understand all of this. So, why would I ever want to get married when I’m 22??
I hope this post didn’t rub anyone the wrong way. I just feel like (and hear from peers) that settling down/getting married earlier in life is frowned upon, and sometimes even made-fun-of. I think that everyone just needs to make the best decision for themselves, and do what makes them feel happy and secure. Had I not met my future husband in 8th grade, I might (probably) be in a totally different situation. If you are in a place where you desire a relationship, love being single, or are somewhere in between, I truly believe God will place that person in your life at the right time. Patience truly is a virtue! But you never know what the next season of your life might hold. I thought that sharing my perspective might be helpful/interesting! And wow, I don’t think I have ever written something so mushy/open/emotional. Phew!!! So be easy on me!
What are your thoughts on this subject? Do you think I’m crazy? All (kind) opinions are welcome. 😉
Spreading love and kindness is always a good idea.
I can’t believe my spring break is coming to an end! I am ready to get back into my daily routine, but the rest and relaxation will be missed! The last few weeks at school before break were pretty hectic so I’m hoping I can ease into schoolwork this week.
I have done a little shopping lately and whenever I wear one of my new pieces I try to remember to take pictures of my outfit. I’m a pretty casual dresser, and most of the time you can find me in leggings and t-shirts. The picture below is how I “styled” one of the t-shirts I received in the mail the other day.

I had a relaxing weekend with my family during their quick visit to Springfield. Last night we rented the movie “Spy” to watch and it was really good! I’m pretty easy to please as far as movies go, but I think that a lot of different people would like that movie. It was funny, kind of “action-y”, and had a good cast. I would recommend it! (Not for kids, though.) My mom, sister, and I also went to a dress store and tried on some dresses, which gave me a little bit of confirmation of the style I am liking. I have decided (I think) that for now I am going to take a break from shopping and try to buy closer to mid- to late-summer. Since our wedding is still pretty far out, I don’t want to buy too soon and have dress regret. Reading WeddingBee might be getting to my head a little bit. 😉
I hope Jake is having fun on his trip! I love that he gets to go have fun this week, but I’ll be missing him! I like being able to see him throughout the week, so this week will be a little different. Without getting too mushy, I just love that guy! I can’t wait to get married and become our own little family. 🙂
In case you’re curious, we posted a YouTube video about the wedding venue we chose! You can watch it here.
Did you have a good weekend? Would you be worried about dress regret? I know it might sound crazy, but it’s a big commitment! I hope you have a relaxing Sunday night, and a wonderful week!
Happy Friday! I’m looking forward to a day with few plans. On the agenda: maybe re-visiting a wedding dress store to try on a dress I like, and tidying up my apartment. Then tonight my parents will be in town to visit! I’m looking forward to seeing them again (even though it’s only been a few days).
Yesterday I completed a 45-minute treadmill workout and thought I’d share it with you. Keep in mind I’m not a personal trainer or anything, this is just something to give you an idea of what some of my cardio workouts look like. I love changing the speed and incline frequently to prevent boredom! The time actually goes by pretty fast when there is a lot of variety in the activity. Let me know if you try it, and tell me what you think!
Now, onto the Friday Favorites!
This week I was loving…
I hope you have a relaxing or exciting weekend ahead of you. Jake has his spring break next week and is going on a trip with some friends, so I’ll both miss him and be a little jealous! Be sure to check out our YouTube channel for a new vlog soon.
Do you have fun weekend plans? Or will you be spending time at home? Do you like or loathe the treadmill?
