Quote of the Week

"I'm not afraid of heights, I'm afraid of falling. I'm not scared of the dark, I'm scared of what's in it. I'm not afraid of love, I'm afraid of not being loved back."
And its the not being loved back that hurts so much...

Last One...

As I finished typing that last post, I looked at the date, and realized that it is June 7.  If you've been reading the blog for a while, you know that this was the date that I was supposed to get married, 2 years ago.  So, today would have been my 2 year anniversary.  When I realized this, I didn't get upset.  My emotional state, regarding this situation, is in a MUCH better place than I've ever been.  So, this will be the last blog post that I write on the subject.

If I had married Will, I'm not so sure that we would have even made it to a 2 year Anniversary.  I'm still coping with being single, but I can honestly say that I don't miss Will anymore.  The only time I think about him, or talk about him is when I'm thinking about what a horrible person he was to me.

So, here is to retiring the "Broken Engagement" Label and moving on.   Better things ahead!  (Maybe even this week... fingers crossed...)

Quote of the Week

I love Quotes... I always have.  Usually, I can always find a quote to fit a certain situation that I'm going through.  So, I've decided to start posting a "Quote of the Week."  Not really for anyone else, but mainly for me, to serve as a reminder that I need this quote this week.  Here is the first installment.
It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return, but what is the most painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let the person know how you feel.
Perfect for this week.  I need to find the courage.

REWIND: May 2010

May was such a busy month! I knew going into it that there were so many things going on that it would fly by... and boy did it!  A lot got done, but there were things that I wanted to happen that didn't... Here are a few highlights.

  • Work ended for a little while.  Since we are super slow during the summer, a lot of us go on lay off.  I love having time off, but it does put quite a strain on the checking account. 
  • Relay for Life - We had a great year for Relay.  Our church's team raised over $20,000 for the American Cancer Society.  We work at it all year.  I'm getting a little too old to stay up all night though... 
  • Mother's Day went well... I cooked dinner for my mom and my whole family... no one died, so that was a success..
  • As you can tell by previous blog posts, a lot of my time during the first few weeks went into making my sister's Baby Shower great.  When it was all said and done, it was a big success, and everyone said everything looked great.  I've had several people tell me that I should open an event planning business... I'm just not sure I'm ready to take that step yet... 
  • The Shift Conference finally took place.  I was so excited about this event!  I will write a more detailed blog post about it.  
  • I turned Twenty Five
  • As you can see, I read a lot more... trying to catch up on that goal. 
  • Ended the month with a girl's night with my sister and cousin, Megan.  We went and got Pedicures, went to Olive Garden to eat and then out to see Sex and the City 2.  We had fun and the movie was too funny! 
Over all, it was a good month, but one that was jam packed with events.  June isn't as packed, but the major event will be the birth of my nephew, Parker!  I'm so excited! 


Book Review -- "Savor the Moment" by Nora Roberts


"Savor the Moment" is the third book in the "Bride Quartet" by Nora Roberts. After reading the first two, there was no doubt that I had to read this one. 

Continuing the story of the life-long friends that started Vows, a wedding planning business, this book focuses on Laurel McBane, the pastry chef.  For her whole life, she has been in love with Delaney Brown, brother of her friend, and business partner, Parker.  However, she has never acted on her feelings because of their close relationship.  

Del views all of the girls at Vows as his sisters.  He has a very "take care of things" nature.  He feels that he needs to look after all of them, like he does his own sister.  This is a big conflict between he and Laurel.  She feels that she doesn't need to be taken care of and that he doesn't have to view her as his sister, so one night during an argument, she gives into impulse and kisses him.  

That kiss opened up a whole lot of feelings, between both of them, and through the course of a couple of months, they figure out that they are right for each other.  Laurel believes that she's always known that Del is "the one." 

Again, I loved this book.  I'm looking forward to the last installment in this series, but it won't be released until November, so I guess I will just have to wait until then!
