My POST

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!

    After almost 2 years, a bleak multiple-factor infertility diagnosis, a miracle surprise BFP while waiting to start treatment, SUA and resolved IUGR, the best thing that ever happened to us is finally here!

    Love it! And yes, i got hooked as an occasional poster, not even being engaged,  when i first started in 2003! The girls on the Knot, be it Seattle, Hawaii or elsewhere are fabulous.  I am thankful for TK as I start my wedding planning journey.

    Have a WONDERFUL time and can't wait to see the pix!.

    You're right, the ladies (and gentleman) on here are really cool.  We're lucky to have such a friendly and quick-witted community.

    And, Congratulations!  I think yours is the first knottie wedding where I feel kinda invested since I've been reading your posts since summer.  I can't wait to hear all about it and see the pics afterwards.  Have a great time!
