THE WEEKLY NOTES #25 a lengthy update – where have I been?



HELLO. It’s me! Remember the lady who is meant to be running this website. For you it probably doesn’t seem like I’ve been gone for long due to the beauty of scheduling posts but I haven’t signed into the website for almost two weeks (apart from the odd replying to comments). It’s been crazy!

So where have I been? Well I’ve been planning and putting together our engagement party that happened over the weekend. I didn’t speak about it on the website because…. No real reason apart from it was bloody hard work and stressful to put together. Plus I felt weird about saying ‘hey our engagement party is March 5th’ kinda thing? A bit of privacy ya know? But everything is done and dusted, apart from a mountain of decorations to put away and gorgeous presents to allocate spots for, so I’m feeling alot better. I actually had a cry yesterday because I felt so overwhelmed with love for the people in our lives. Most people we wanted there came and everyone was so helpful with putting it together. I’ve always known we have pretty special people in our lives but the weekend just really cemented that for me and I felt a wave of appreciation and damn right love. Our family and friends are just pretty damn rad!


Enough gushing. We’re back to normal for a little while now and I feel relived to have a few weeks getting on top of website things before Easter. I will be doing the #mtachat VERY soon and also the blog sale. I really wanted to have started both by now but in all honesty I didn’t feel like I could in the lead up to the party. I’m fairly easily overwhelmed so it felt nice to take a step back and just take some time to concentrate on my personal life for little while. For so long the website has been number 1 priority but not having to think about it for a little while was so refreshing. I feel guilty admitting that but at the same time I know it’s a healthy thing to do.


So I’m back and ready to get things moving again! You guys have been so lovely and supportive over the past few months and I thank you a million times over for being such a rad group of people. You guys rock!


What did you get up to over the weekend?

    Sounds like it’s all been a bit of a whirlwind for you lately, so happy to hear that your engagement party went well! I usually cry in situations like that as well, sometimes when you’re surrounded by so much love it’s hard not to just burst into happy tears. Plus I’m also a Pisces so I pretty much cry at the drop of a hat, haha

    Congratulations on your engagement! I’ve been crazy busy lately and haven’t been keeping up with your posts as I usually do so missed this exciting news somehow! Glad to hear the engagement party went well and you were able to have some time away from the blog to enjoy this special time!
    I actually got engaged just before Christmas too! We’re not sure if we’re going to have an engagement party at this stage, but would love to hear some tips if you’re willing to share that!

      Awww thanks Tash!!! That’s so exciting for you and your sister/fam/friends etc. It’s a crazy experience but so much fun. I’ve already bought my wedding dress despite not having a venue or date… I just feel in love when I was trying it on. How crazy is that? Ha!

    It’s so important to take a blogging break, it can really revamp your inspiration (plus you know, live your life, all that jazz). Congrats on the engagement party, you guys are too cute! :)

      Exactly! I’m taking another break over Easter to fly up north to see family. In the past I’ve felt so much pressure to keep things running on the blog etc but now I’m like ‘it’ll be fine, peeps won’t even notice’ haha xxx

I loved ours so much and you do feel that gush of emotion going through your cards and presents and being reminded of all the wonderful people you have in your life!!!
