When you’re waiting to get married, time moves so SLOWLY.

I’ve come back to blogging every so often. My mind is less crowded with things lately, and for MONTHS I’ve tried to write things that are meaningful to me, but I just couldn’t get the words out. One of my latest thoughts has been about how September 2016 seems SO FAR AWAY, and it is.  Bryan…

2-2-2: an exercise in dating my fiancé.

Dating my fiancé? Yeah, you read it right! Being in a relationship isn’t as easy is seems. It takes a lot of work, every single day, to give love and to receive love. I work harder at my relationship with Bryan than I do anything else. It’s one of the most important things I’ve got in…

I tried this once. I try everything just about once. Sometimes I go back to it, and sometimes it’s not worth it, but this particular thing was worth it to me after consulting with a few people who’d done it, loved it, and are happy with the choice. I’d been teetering on the edge of being…

From long to short.

For as long as I could remember, I’ve been wearing weaves, hair extensions, and whatever else I could to cover up my own crazy locks. When I first wasn’t sure how to control PCOS, or what vitamins to take, my hair would fall out in huge chunks, and hair extensions were a better alternative. Most…

The SAE chant and why we needed to see it the way we did.

I debated whether I wanted to say something. I had this internal battle with myself about how I wanted to say this without sounding angry, or apologetic, or redundant.

5 things I learned from meditation.

Meditation means lots of different things to different people. For me, I decided that it was a moment to pause, listen to some calming music, breathe, unplug, and get away from the world and in tune with myself for 20 minutes – no thinking, just being.

Tales from an off-beat bride.

Today I’ve been engaged to Bryan for two full months, and as I’ve been trying to get a handle on what I wanted (Bryan says he’d just show up, with the only request being that WE have fun that day), I realized something – I don’t want the craziness I actually thought I wanted.  Before I got engaged,…

Wedding dress shopping: the great, the good and the ugly.

Yesterday was my first wedding dress shopping excursion. Initially, my mom, my best friend, and I were going to go, but my mom got sick in the late half of the week and couldn’t join us, so it was up to Katie and I to take sufficient pictures, and laugh extremely loud at bad dresses so…

Explaining PCOS, learning to be a social eater, and my DietBet.

Mila, you got some ‘splaining to do.

Butternut Squash Bisque

It’s been a while since i’ve checked in. I think since my last post, I bought a spin bike (so I could workout at home, every day, NO EXCUSES), and Bryan and I started working out together since the first time in forever! I also started a very fun project that I can’t wait to unveil…
