Illinois-Chicago

a little MIA and an announcement

I was out in Texas this past week visiting family and then my brother's wedding was on Sunday.  It was quite interesting, to say the least!  The weather was a stifling 95 degrees and it was outdoors on the lake, but it was at sunset and quite beautiful.  My mom was a stressed out mess the entire weekend, my grandma collapsed the morning of the wedding and was rushed to the ICU (so she missed the wedding, but she's doing much better now but is still hospitalized), the cake was wonderful, the music was terrible and kept skipping while the bridal party walked down the aisle and the brides aisle walk (i felt so bad for her).  I heard the bridesmaids were fighting with the bride the night before and the morning of the wedding , the groomsmen were drunk most of the wedding day before the wedding started, and lots of more drama that ill spare you details on... but I think the wedding overall was nice and my brother and sis-in-law enjoyed themselves.

In other news, I will be stepping down as moderator for this board.  I called off my wedding about a month or two ago and while it was tough decision, it was the best one and im feeling much better about my decision now.  If you are interested in moderating, please send me a PM.   I wish you all well and nothing but happiness :)

    Oh no!  I'm SO sorry!!  I'm sure it was a hard decision but if you had doubts, then it seems like you did the right thing.  Best of luck in future endeavors!

    I am so sorry to hear about your change in plans, however, I know you made the best decision in your heart.  I know it is not an easy thing to do, as I too had called off my wedding before with my ex.

    Many Blessings to you in your future endeavors and may you continue to be happy and do what is best for you.

    P.S I will be praying all goes well for your grandmothers recovery.

    Aww, so sweet :)

    Aint that the truth! My friends IRL would probably be so sick of me with all the wedding talk I did on TK!

    hey LIB,
    i'm a newbie so i hope this doesn't sound weird since i don't know you personally at all!  but, your posts/answers have always been full of really good advice and you've probably helped a lot more girls than you realize.  i know i've learned a lot in the past few months, i go back and read my original posts and i was SO clueless.  (i'm still clueless but i'm learning!)

    also again i don't know you but i think you must be a very brave person to do what you know is the right thing for you and your future.  it must have been very hard to think of it, much less take the action.  it sounds like you have a great support system and that they're all very proud of you.  i'm sure you have great adventures and lots of happiness in store!

    best to you!

    Ditto what everyone else has said.  You have been a fantastic moderator, friend, and advice-giver throughout the time I've been on this board.  Best of luck in everything.

    LIB,

    Thank you for being such a wonderful mod.

    And I've also called off a wedding in the past - 3 months before the day - so I get the number of emotions that go along with it. Best decision I ever made & I know that deep down you know this is the best for you.

    Best of everything in your new journey!
