So, 2012. Gulp. It’s a big year for me, and for us. I mean, we’re getting married in a few weeks! More on that in a minute, but while I didn’t want to do a full on year in review type blog post, I do want to acknowledge a few things!
I guess this big thing is the engagement. That was awesome. And I’m excited to be getting married. I’m not sure why tbh, I never really thought anything would change, but it obviously is going to, and I like it :) I’m learning a lot about our relationship, and it all seems good. We work together well, we’re a team and I’m excited for the future. I’m excited for us.
I’m excited about the wedding as well. I’m realising that it won’t be the fairytale wedding the magazines tell us we should want – it won’t be a traditional wedding at all really. We’re doing it quickly so I’ve had to let go of a lot of the ideas I wanted. I’m not going to be able to make napkins for the table. I’m not going to be able to make all the invitations and orders of service. What I’m hoping it will be is fun with good food and a chance to see all my friends and family together for a good time. We’re not fussy people, and I think if I tried to create a wedding that would look at home in the pages of a magazine, I’d spend the day feeling awkward and uncomfortable, and I kind of want to enjoy the day!
I started a WI as well! I’m pretty proud of myself on that front, if a little daunted by the responsibility I feel towards the group now. Knowing people have made friends through it and that they come for the social aspects as well as the speakers – that feels pretty good!
I got a new job! Did I mention this? I don’t think I did. I was facing redundancy and had to apply for a new role at work, which was awful, but I got the job, and the person I was up against has been offered a new job which she’s excited about, so that’s good as well :)
It’s going to be a good year I think. And I plan to enjoy it. I’m not going to beat myself up over resolutions and lists of what I should be doing, other then the vague ‘enjoy myself’. And maybe this by Neil Gaiman. I like this.
