It’s with a bit of relief that I step into January. December was an incredible month, but it was also a little bit of insanity.
It’s nice to breathe again.
My wedding was incredible. Despite some mishaps with the catering, everything went smoothly.
The hall that we used as our venue is by no means fully renovated, but we managed to get the last few essentials done the night before the wedding (phew!). It looked incredible and everyone finally understood why we were working so hard to make this venue work.
Most importantly, everyone enjoyed it, and it was the perfect celebration with the very closest of family and friends.
Then once that was over, it was time for Christmas. More roaring fires, family, friends, and delicious food.
December rather felt like one long celebration.
Of course I think I have some residual stress that I haven’t quite gotten rid of. I’m still having a bit of a hard time fully relaxing. So much of my time and energy went into planning the wedding and making sure it went smoothly (I can see why some people opt to just hire wedding planners) that it’s kind of hard to believe it’s actually over. It’s done. I’m married, and life can finally move forward again.
And now it’s 2017. January. And I come freshly armed with a new camera and a fresh excitement for the new year.
January will be a recovery month, but also a month to start getting back into the groove of real life and my goals.
I hope you Christmas and New Years were wonderful, whether eventful or relaxing.
