the beginning

hi there!

as this is my very first post i guess i'd better do some introductions. i'm lou, pleased to meet you.

in march the boy asked me to marry him. we are getting married in january and i find myself in the middle of a whole new wedding planning world. it is strange and all consuming and sometimes i don't recognize myself as this person who will happily spend hours looking at wedding blogs. sometimes the boy will look strangely at me and i can tell he thinks i have gone wedding mad. when this happens i have to show him bridezillas or four weddings to clearly show him how good he has it.

when i was an angry teenager i would tell anyone who would listen how marriage was a load of bollocks and that i would never get married. EVER! as a now (supposed) adult my feelings on the subject have (obviously) changed somewhat. however, i still find the idea of marriage to be complex, confusing and terrifying... as well as magical, practical and romantical.

so i guess this blog is my way of exploring and navigating those big ideas... as well as ooh-ing and aah-ing over pretty pictures and shoes and dresses.

i hope you will join me!
