Since my last post, I have been working on re-branding Product Girl into something new. I have been taking my time with it so that it feels right, comfortable. I settled on a new name, registered the domain, moved all the content over and started working on a new look when something happened and everything came to a halt.
Over Thanksgiving weekend in Idaho with his family, my handsome man asked me to be his wife. Of course I said yes, Jake is everything I could have ever asked for in a husband. He is funny, confident and charming yet very kind, patient and loving. I never thought I would be a married woman but this September I will be marrying my best friend and the love of my life. It doesn’t hurt that he’s an amazing cook either. 😉
They say that starting a new job, moving and getting married are some of the most stressful things in life. I’m going to have done them all in one year. Last October I started a new job that challenges me, we moved into our first home together last month and now we’re planning our wedding for September. With all of the stress flying around us, we’ve managed to keep it together and not kill each other. That only reaffirms my belief that I am the luckiest woman in the world to be able to call him mine.
I never gave much thought to the process since it didn’t apply to me but once the euphoria of getting engaged started to wear off and my mind went into planning mode, I quickly learned that all things wedding lead to panic and anxiety. That’s when I realized that big fairytale wedding was definitely not for me, much to Jake’s relief. We quickly agreed that a private courthouse ceremony and celebrating with our family and friends afterwards was the way to go. That didn’t stop me from buying every wedding magazine I could get my hands on and start getting ideas for our big day.
So far, I know I’ll be an easygoing bride and he’ll be an easy going groom. I don’t want a big formal dress but I do want something somewhat elegant. I know how I want my makeup and hair on that day; I’m imagining Adele’s makeup on the cover of 25 and long beachy waves with a touch of ombre on the ends. I haven’t decided if I’ll do a birdcage of some sort or just flowers in my hair, it all depends on the dress.
Back to the blog, I promise it will come back. I am starting to get the itch again. I have started trying to catch up with beauty news, drafting posts on my phone… I don’t know when but it will come back with a new name and look I hope you will like what you see!
