The Time Has Come, The Walrus Said...

"The time has come, the walrus said,
To talk of many things.
Of ships and shoes and sealing wax
Of cabbages and kings..."

But...(Siiiiigh)...Not weddings. It's hard to believe and even harder to write this but my time blogging here has reached it's end.  And for once, Little Miss Gabby,Chatty-Cathy, Talk-Your-Ear-Off me is at a loss for words.

Because how do I express what Weddingbee and all it's incredibly smart, funny, rockin' readers have done for me during my one-and-a-half year tenure as a blogger? It's so hard to figure out without sounding trite, cheesy or repetitive but I'm going to give it my best shot.

When I joined the site in June of 2009, I never expected to become real-life, honest-to-goodness friends with people. I mean, it's a wedding site and I came looking for wedding inspiration and here I am, almost two years later, in awe of this community and the ties that bind it. Seriously, this is a pretty amazing place.

And while saying good bye to you all is the hardest, a part of me is sad to say good bye to my wedding too.  Because in spite of all my b*tching and moaning, I really did love my wedding.  I loved planning it, I loved crafting for it, I loved anticipating it and after it was all said and done, I loved (and still love) re-living it. Truthfully, I would happily start planning another one all over again and never leave this enchanted world.  But I'm fast approaching our one-year anniversary and so I thought that on our two-year engage-aversary, there was no more fitting time for me to sign off. 

Aaaaaaaand, now I can't see the computer keys since I'm crying so hard...*Sob* (Seriously.)

Before I go, I need to just tell you all one thing and I mean this: You guys are fucking awesome.

For real.  I've said this before and I'll say it again- I'm sure I would have made it to my wedding just fine without you all but it damn sure would not have been anywhere near as much fun. You guys made my wedding more than a party with pretty details, you showed me what community means and made me realize how important the idea of a community was for our wedding day. I'll never forget that and I'll always be grateful for being a part of this community right here.

While there's not much left to write about, wedding-wise, I obviously can't shut up for long so if you wanna come on by and read about my running feats and dessert foibles, you can find more of me at A Runners Life.  And obviously, I can't really quit you all, so I'm sure you'll still see me commenting away on blog posts and the boards. 

But, for now, this is it.

Friends, I wish you all nothing but the best, from wonderful, stress-free, happy weddings to lives filled with love, joy and togetherness.  You all deserve that. And finally, most importantly, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
