Good morning everyone! It’s been awhile since we’ve talked. I apologize for that. I just haven’t felt like posting. Each time I came to the screen, what I wanted to say seemed blahhh. But, after a few weeks away, I wanted to pop in and say, “hi. I’m still here.” The last few weeks have been busy, but oh so fun! I turned 26, AJ and I had a couples shower (see feature photo for me gushing over a card we received and AJ just enjoying the moment) and felt so loved, and this weekend my friend Lyd gets married! Lots going on, and lots to be excited about. I hope you guys have been well. Don’t be a stranger! Here’s what I have for you today:
- The people love Keanu Reeves.
- FREAKNIK Atlanta. Love this tee.
- I’d love to get one of these match strikers for the house.
- This card speaks the truth.
- Love this post that a friend shared that lists compliments that aren’t about physical appearance.
- Been listening to this book on audible for the past month, and if I could only listen to one book for the rest of forever this would be it.
- Thomas Rhett’s new album is going to be the soundtrack of my summer for sure.
- I’ve been binge-watching season 3 of Riverdale since it came out on Netflix, but also on my list of things to watch are: Always Be My Maybe, Fleabag, and Chernobyl.
- Julia and I’s new fave TV show is NBC’s Songland.
- I’d be lying if I told you I haven’t been struggling with body image. With the wedding getting closer and closer each day, I find myself becoming more and more critical of myself. I’m feeling this pressure to be the best version of myself there ever was for August 17. Then @matchaboutwellness shared this post on Instagram, and it was exactly the reminder I needed. As excited as I am for August 17, I am constantly reminding myself that it’s one day. That it’s unnecessary for me to put so much pressure on myself to ensure it will be the best day of my life. It’s easy to get caught up in the details and the industry. To compare your wedding to not only every wedding you’ve ever been to, but every stranger’s wedding on the internet. I’ve had to be very mindful the last few months about who I follow and what I look at. Because, in the end, the most important thing that day is that AJ and I will both say, “I do.” And the rest? Well, it’ll happen, and I’m sure it’ll be great but ultimately I’ll probably forget. I won’t remember what size I was, what we ate, or if guests thought our DJ was fun. In the end, I’ll remember that AJ and I committed to one another forever before God, and that’s what I have to keep reminding myself is most important.
- And what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t share the new Taylor Swift single?
That’s all for today guys. thanks for checking in.
