I don’t know about other engaged/ married ladies, but when Kendall popped the question, I wanted to tell the world. And I did. We got lucky in that our proposal was actually taped by a WTK band member/ YouTuber, so it’s immortalized on the ‘tube FOR-EV-ER (and it’s been viewed over 46k times!) besides being on my blog. I could talk wedding all day long, and I’ve actually apologized to my friends and family for being super lame insanely excited  about my engagement and they’ve all told me the same thing: it’s my time. And you know what? After all the weddings I’ve attended and been init is.

While I didn’t even consider flashing my ring all over social media the minute I got engaged, it is an absolutely stunning symbol of my my and Kendall’s new life together. He picked it just for me and it’s basically a combo of every ring I’ve ever loved. I also, pretty much immediately, picked up the Bride trucker hat I wore to the Barbie brunch last weekend. I just kind of want to shout it from the rooftops that I’m taken- by the most amazing guy on the planet. I am truly lucky that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Incidentally, today is my birthday! And I couldn’t ask for a better gift than all the love I’ve received this year from both him and everyone else in my life. Thank you to everyone who has made 27 my best year. 28 will only be better because I get to marry the love of my life!

If you’ve been paying any attention, you might know that I’m in three weddings this spring. A couple weekends ago, I had my first wedding event of the season to kind of kick it off. I’ve known Juliana (Little Jules) basically my whole life and literally all of hers. My sister, Jules, and I did pretty much everything together for twelve years. Trick or treating, Christmas pageants, Easter Egg hunts- everything. Her Parents are Uncle Walt and Aunt Jules, mine are Aunt Mathy and Uncle Andy. That’s just how it always was. Our real cousins even knew each other. Her little sister is even named Caroline. (side note- “Little” Caroline is now about a head taller than me.) I’m representing my family as one of her bridesmaids, frankly, because my little sister, Candace, will be busy guardian-angeling over the wedding. It’s been bittersweet, but I’ll be there for Juliana like I know she’ll be there for me one day.

My mom wanted to do something special for Jules, so she got together with Anita, another mom we grew up with, and threw an amazing tea party for close friends and family of the bride. I loved that it was at my parents’ home because so many of us there had celebrated with each other for various other events. At least two of the guests had their baby showers (as in- they were the babies) in that same house. This is definite perk of my parents staying in the same place for 27 years. Anita and my mom did most of the food, my dad made chicken Florentine special for Aunt Jules, and one of Anita’s daughters hand made the most amazing biscotti. I’m not sure that many readers will necessarily care about all of these details, but it was just the sweetest afternoon- complete with mimosas and some sentimental tears. I definitely get my love of detail from my mom and I’m so thankful. I’ll probably do a few more posts like these before I’m all done in June, hopefully you all can bear with me and my wedding madness until then.
