I had such a great weekend spent with my closest girlfriends. We went away to New Buffalo, MI and stayed at my friend’s cottage, which was adorable I must say. I’ve been so busy and laser focused on tying up any loose ends with wedding plans, I admit I’ve neglected to make more time for my friends. What I realized this weekend is that quality time with friends is necessary for individual sanity, comfort and happiness. I sincerely do not think I stopped laughing or smiling all weekend, all thanks to them. Being around people who understand and love you helps create a very real and honest level of contentment, something we all deserve and need. For the first time in a while, I felt present. I tried to relinquish control and worry – two things I regularly battle.
In other good news, we are now under the one month mark for our wedding day! I feel very confident in and excited for the day’s festivities – everything seems to be falling into place. Emotions are high, in a very true and meaningful way.
Next weekend will be October 1st. I am so ready for Fall and all this wonderful season has to offer. Pumpkin farms, apple picking, sweaters and booties, cozy evenings in with friends and family. Just when I think it’s time for jeans and comfy sweaters, the sun comes a blazin’. However, this has not stopped me from adding my new BLANKNYC moto jacket to my current wardrobe mix. While this jacket is raw and edgy, I’m anxious to find new and contrasting looks with this Fall staple.
