#466: see you in 2009.


via absolutely beautiful things.

the big picture.

to wrap up this year (and as i embark on a 2 week hiatus from blogging), i plan to reflect on the past 12 months and think of...

the risks i've taken, the mistakes i've made, and the joys i've experienced.

to become a better person ...isn't really a goal per se.

but that's ok.

because that's what i aim to be, year after year. as defined by me and those i admire.

***************************************

as for the wedding thing...and this blog...

my heart just bursts with gratitude when i think of what it's become, what it's provided and what it's taught me.

and i sincerely thank you for taking this journey with me.

planning a wedding isn't a notable goal in the grand scheme of things. i mean. is it even really a goal.

but i believe that some of the learnings and realizations many of us have experienced along the way can be translated into viable big picture lessons. life lessons that reach far above and beyond just planning a wedding.

and to say it has for me would be somewhat of an understatement. melty, velveeta cheese. but true.

so xoxo times a mil and cheers to more learnings and realizations together in the future.

see you in 2009.

honestly i completely believe that. you learn alot about people, yourself, life and what who you want to become planning your wedding. its not the end, its just the beginning!
happy holidays :)

Love! And agreed. This wedding thing is all about learning... in ways I can't even express on a blog I think, though perhaps I shall take my break to ponder how.

Happiness to you and yours from the bottom of my little heart.
