Don't freak out if the blog looks wonky when you stop by. There might be some redesigning in the works.

I think my post on Saturday was a bit over the top and melodramatic. I'm blaming it on a belly full of wine and the fact that I'm missing my Phi Mu family more than ever.

That's a pic of Taylor and Me last spring. That's also the same white shirt I wore on my first date with Mike. 
I've always been a firm believer in the "what's meant to be will always find a way" school of thought. And after several pep-talks from my friends and family, and lots of reassurance from the Feef, I've settled my thoughts down and come to the realization that nothing has ever been truer. I can't thank those of you who read and commented on Saturday enough for your kind words of affirmation.

It is our wedding. Just us - me and Mike. Yes, we'd love for our families to be a part of it. We'd love for our friends to be a part of it. We want to share our happiness with whoever wants a piece of it. But when all is said and done, it is our wedding and nobody else's. I think I was just too caught up in having a perfect ceremony and reception to realize that the perfection would come the second we say "I do," and that after that, none of it will matter.

We picked out my wedding band several weeks ago and I wanted to share it.

So we've decided to cancel the Partridge Inn and start hunting for a new venue. We're making appointments and keeping an open mind. I don't know if I'm going to fall in love with another place quite the way I'd fallen in love with the Partridge, but that doesn't matter. I also don't know if I'm going to fall in love with a place that's already booked for our date. Nothing is set in stone, and nothing says we can't get married earlier or later than March 31st.

We've decided to not make any other decisions as far as decor goes until we know what kind of space we're going to be working with. So much of me is going to miss that lovely veranda and unique charm that the Partridge offered, but I know as long as we both show up sober and in love, it's going to be a wonderful day.



  1. So glad that you are feeling better about the wedding planning situation! And I totally laughed when I read the "as long as we both show up sober" part. So great. ha!

  2. It's all going to turn out just fine, trust me! I've been there and I had a few of those "spells" but in the end you're right - it's about you and your love and everything else will fall into place!

  3. everything will be perfect...because at the end of the day, you'll be married to your love :)

  4. IT WILL BE PERFECT!!! even better than the partridge, I am sure of it! :)

  5. I love the new changes! Did you make this template yourself or dish out some money for a profesh?
    I know a few Phi Mu's at FSU!


  7. You're beautiful and I love you! Don't fret, your wedding is going to be beautiful WHERE EVER you decide to have it. Mike will love you no matter where you decide to say "I do!" Miss you GG.

  8. OMG! I'm going through the same thing right now! For me also I've gotten over that hump and now am in the mind frame that it is OUR wedding and only ours. It's our day!
