A Brief (Wedding) Hiatus

Friends & Readers, the day approaches.
I’m getting married on Saturday and will be away from blogging until September 12th. I hope you’ll come back and visit me then. I appreciate all of the people I’ve met, reconnected with and encountered through this blog. I hope there are many more good times to come.
Fondly,
Payton

Happy (Birthday) Weekend

My birthday is Sunday. It’s a considerably more low key milestone this year in light of the HUGE event that’s happening in two weeks. I am in disbelief as I sit here writing “in two weeks”. I’ve been planning this wedding excitedly but also somewhere in the back of my mind thinking it would never come to fruition – sortof like my 16th & 21st birthdays or college graduation. And yet, it swiftly approaches and I’m starting to have freak outs about how many loved ones I get to see & celebrate with.

So, I’m hoping for a chill weekend. My almost-husband is taking me to dinner tonight. We’re going to the pool tomorrow and I’m sure I’ll throw in some thank-you note writing.

Fondly wishing you a very pleasing August weekend.

Love is all you need.

Today marks two months until the big day. Typically, that would seem like a long time to wait for anything, but in reference to our wedding it seems like mere minutes. I know it’s a while but I also know it will pass quickly and all of a sudden I’ll turn around and be walking down the aisle. This serves as a personal reminder to savor it and to stop eating ;)

On another note, I feel so privileged to be able to marry the person I love. It’s not a right that is afforded to everyone, although thankfully we are getting closer.

Way down yonder in New Orleans

My bags are packed! I’m ready to go! It’s hard to believe that I’m heading to New Orleans to celebrate my bachelorette, see sweet friends that I haven’t seen in a long time and get excited about my wedding in exactly THREE MONTHS from tomorrow!

The weekend has already started nicely, my dress was delivered today! I haven’t opened the box yet but I’m so excited.

I hope you have a lovely holiday weekend! I’ll leave you with a little picture of the future Bridewells.

News & Thanks

Hello friends! I realized today that my blog is a little over two years old. I missed our birthday, it was in March (3/18). It’s hard to believe I have been posting that long. I’ve really come to love the blog and all the people I’ve reconnected with because of it. I started a blog because I believe it’s so important to hone in on what inspires you. It helps you stay enthusiastic and hopeful. Plus, you always feel inspired!

Today the blog officially transfered over to thewindowshopper.org. If you look for prettypay you will still find me so no worries! Thank you all for the continued support, the kind words and most of all, the friendship. If you’d like a peak back at one of my early posts, click here.

Love,

Payton
