Hi, My Name is Sarah (And I Have a Problem With Online Shopping)

Oh wait, I'm sorry, am I not at the Online Shopaholics Anonymous link-up?  My bad!

When I saw that Jenni posted a "challenge" to blog every day in May, I laughed until I cried, because NO means no.  But then I started reading her prompts and I really liked some of them.  So here we are.  Today's post is the Story Of Your Life.  Yikes.

So, HI, I'm Sarah, a 26-year old (yikes!) small-town Indiana girl with a love for online shopping, taking pretty pictures (to the best of my ability), wine, and baking.

I consider myself an old-school blogger - I blog about my life, my love(s), and any random thing that happens in between.

Two years ago, I wrote a blog post that changed my life.  After two years of "finding myself" after a breakup, I said that I was kinda-maybe-sorta ready to date again.  Less than a week later, a man walked into my life.  Tall, dark, handsome (and young!), he was (in my opinion) way out of my league and not what I was looking for.  But then I read back to the comments on that post, and knew I had to at least take a chance.

A month later, I introduced the world to Mr. Ridiculously Handsome - and life hasn't been the same since.  We are getting married on September 21st of this year (less than 5 months!  hold me!) and I love to blog about wedding decisions in excruciating detail.

I also blog about missing my mom, who died 5.5 years ago from colon cancer and how much it sucks planning a wedding without her.

Uplifting note to end on, no?  Hello to any new visitors who may drop by today.  Leave a comment, I'd love to meet you.

Regulars... did I leave anything out?  An essential detail of my blog or personality that I'm leaving out?  (Like that I'm hilarious.)

Questions?  Comments?

Happy May 1st, Happy WINE Wednesday!!

Hi, stopping by from the Story of My Life link up! Love your blog... when you started the post with "I have a problem with online shopping..." I knew we had something in common :)

You're so cute, Sarah -- just had to say that :) My online shopping has gotten a little out of control lately, but I'm mostly blaming it on the wedding. Like, I really NEED to start buying all this cute table decor... and I might as well get a new pair of jeans while I'm at it. Eh?

I'm a long time reader (rare commenter) and I think you did a great job "summing" up your story. I've loved getting to know you over the years and love that you found love in such a handsome, sweet guy. You deserve all the happiness in the world and I can't wait to see all your wedding posts!

Your blog always makes me smile. :) And I love hearing about Mr. RH and your sweet mom. She's got the best view of the wedding planning of everyone.

In other news, you inspire me to try to blog more because you are so busy but still make time for it. You go girl.
