Being here for so long, I really can't believe my post is here! I tried to imagine how this time would feel and I knew I'd be nervous, exited and anxious, but I didn't know I'd also find myself looking forward to certain little random moments.
As crazy as it sounds, some of those moments wouldn't be happening without the help of you all. I can't even imagine how my wedding would be playing out if I hadn't found this crazy place and I am truly thankful for all of the recs, help and advice, for things WR and not.
I came here as a girl who had just left her family, friends and job to move out for the first time across the country to Seattle and plan a NJ wedding. All I imagined was a steady rain following me around.
What I didn't imagine was that I'd be one of the crazy girls who read and posted here all the time. "Do all these girls know each other?? I don't get it!" I thought. But now I get it.
At times we share more than we do with those in our "real lives" and in fact it was here that I turned to in those early days to share a story, vent or just chat, and I am so amazed by the help and friendships I've experienced here. You truly got me through those days when I didn't know a soul, and I think that's why I stayed multiple moves later...I'm not a Seattleite geographically, but I still have a place in my heart for the Pacific Northwest.
Thank you for everything. See you on flip side!
