PUT A RING ON IT

Hello my sweethearts,

Some of you might have guessed, others may have read it somewhere on the internet, so yes, here it is, I’m getting married! I don’t know if there should be an exclamation point next to that or an ellipsis! I am so happy, and at the same time, this is all so personal…I’m at a loss, but happy.

I had never asked myself the question “Do I ever see myself getting married”? The answer was no, or actually yes, the answer was: “Yes, really to wear a gorgeous gown and organize a mega party.” Not very deep reasons, I’ll give you that, but still very valid ones if you ask me! But I have met the One who has made me want to jump in with both feet, even if it’s crazy, I love the idea of being crazy in love, enough to want to say “forever” to each other, I mean “forever,” that we may inspire each other to become better people…

For 4 months now, I’ve been wearing this ring and I’ve loved keeping this to myself, to ourselves, to our close friends, and now, it’s been a few days that’s it’s become official, well, as far as the web is concerned, so today I’ll give you a brief press release to announce the news, it makes me a little dizzy, because here it is, it’s set in stone, I’m getting married…

But that brings to mind a new question: Why do we say “Congratulations”? Because we haven’t actually done anything yet! We’ve thrown ourselves into the complex business that is wedding planning, people should be wishing us “Good luck, guys”…At first, I said to myself, why “Congratulations”? “Congratulations on getting your hooks into a good guy”? “Congratulations on this new love connection”? And then I talked about it with others and they said that I was being silly and that I must have been raised in a cave, and that what you mean when you say it is “It’s so awesome for you both” or “WICKED, I love a 72-hours champagne fest”

And then all of a sudden, I started second guessing myself on setting the limits of how much I want to show you, to share with you here. Because in the end, it is I, Lisa, who will be getting married, it’s not Make My Lemonade…But at the same time it’s going to be 100% DIY, at least I hope so, so I think I will have a hard time not talking about it here with you…

In short, it’s all unclear… I really don’t know, I’m feeling my way along, it’s funny to see how, when it’s about doing things for yourself, it’s a whole other ballgame. So I’m moving forward, between inspirations and fittings… And in the end, my mind is so occupied by about 10 other projects on the side that I haven’t really started to anticipate my future all in white. Sending you big kisses and thanking you for all your kindness…
