The Truth Fuckin' Hurts

I wrote a letter to my father nearly a year ago to try and discuss my upcoming nuptials. His response was deleted due to my frustration.  It said something along the lines of “give me a break” and “you’re treating me like shit”.

After this break (or attempt) of communication, It wasn’t until a month before my wedding that I spoke with my dad about a gift he sent. Don’t worry, it wasn’t a bomb. After that it wasn’t until my wedding, months later, that I was able to see him face to face again.  Not once during the entire weekend did I see him smile; he actually tried to hide in family pictures, and when we took small family pictures, he didn’t look at the camera. Geeze.

Spring/ Early summer of 2012


We need to talk.  This seems to be the only way to communicate with you because…

Allowing Myself

I mailed out our wedding thank-yous today, which is perfect because it’s our 6 month anniversary. People ask us over and over again, “So, how’s it being married?”

At first, it was a relief. Look at all of this time we have, the freedom of our energy and finances. It seemed our life was finally going to become so “normal” and we’d go on, literally, happily ever after.

For the first 4 months, I didn’t even understand I had expectations. Our relationship has always had ups and downs, just like anyone’s. Some weeks we’re kissing and hugging, others we’re touchy, ready to snap, most weeks have a casual and loving shine to them. Safety. Love. Comfort.

I didn’t understand that I expected something to change, for better or worse (pun intended) post-vows.
But of course, expectations are there to be challenged, shattered even.

Life went on post-wedding. I…

I’ve spent the last two hours quarantined in our bedroom while Jason took over the living room to watch the Notre Dame vs. Alabama game. I’m not really a fan of college football, plus I feel like complete crap still, so lying in bed with a magazine we received at the bridal show yesterday sounded like an ideal way to spend my evening.

I made our wedding cake topper and it was so much fun. I cut out the lovely pair on the top from an old piano sheet I had and then glitzed it up with everything else. I love old and new paper ephemera and have accumulated quite the collection.

I am going to make some customizable cake toppers for weddings to sell on my website soon. I’m hoping people like them as much as I like making them and appreciate the uniqueness of having something unlike your typical cake toppers you find everywhere!
