While I don’t actually have any weddings to attend this year (sadly, I want to go!), it seems like my Instagram and Facebook feeds are filled with people going to weddings, going to engagement parties or getting married themselves. This past Saturday I saw posts from at least 10 wedding-related functions.
I’m getting to the age where friends are getting engaged and married, and some are even having (or have already had!) kids. It’s a crazy time in life where some people are single (and happily so!) and not ready for marriage or kids, but others in my life are excited to get there, or already are.
While I’m not quite ready for it yet, I do love going to weddings, and can’t wait for more friends and family to get married. There was a period of time where I had a few weddings in a year, but things have slowed down, and I’m getting excited for the next chapter when my closest friends start to move towards wedding territory!
It’s a hot topic in my circle of friends, those in relationships are eagerly asking each other if they’re next, but some who aren’t are wondering if they’re behind. Although age is just a number, turning 25 definitely made me (and a lot of other people I know!) begin to reflect on where I am in my life, and where I want to be. Watching those around me get married (including my first boyfriend – ah!) as made me wonder when it might be mine and Rowan’s turn.
However, 25 has also been a turning point for me in finding myself, working on my career, and defining the path for me. The latter half of this year may not have me walking down the aisle of a chapel, but it’ll have be walking down the aisles of airplanes, and I can’t wait for that! I’m happy with my little family of three, travelling when I can, and living life to the fullest – and that’s ok with me!
I recently worked with Dixie Outlet Mall to create some looks for wedding guests, and this one would be so fun for a casual, breezy summer wedding. In fact, I’m extremely disappointed I DON’T have a wedding to attend this summer, because this outfit is so perfect for it! Check out more on my Instagram account!
