The Thursday Three #34

  1. I missed my blogiversary on May 14! My blog is 7 years old and has reached the age of reason! I may need an outside source to verify this, but I feel as though the blog has come a long way. Because my life is rapidly changing, I do not know what will become of this blog, but I do hope to continue it in some form, even though I may not update as regularly as I did in the past.
  2. If you are a writer, you’ve probably been encouraged to read Annie Dillard’s memoir The Writing Life. There is literally no reason why you shouldn’t read this book. It’s only 100-something pages long and beautifully written. Sometimes it is difficult to tell that the author is in fact ruminating on the craft of writing, but by the end of the little book, all the metaphors become clear.
  3. Wedding update: The Knot says I am more than halfway through planning, which is good because we are getting married in less than 4 months! The entire notion of being someone’s wife is becoming less and less foreign to me; every day, I learn something that simultaneously makes me hang my head in humility and smile in amazement. I chose right. 🙂

  1. Happy blogiversary! (And many many happy returns 🙂 )

    Glad the wedding progress is, well, progressing. I have no idea what the Knot is, but of course when I got married the web didn’t exist yet.

    I expect, even with electronic help, there will be a few things misplaced and forgotten, and a few connections missed. They’ll make wonderful memories and anecdotes in the years to come.


  2. Your blog and I share a birthday, haha. Congrats on seeing the light at the end of the wedding planning tunnel! I haven’t even gotten my ring yet and I’ve already opened a very daunting “Wedding Planner” template in Google Docs. My partner is still half seriously trying to talk me into a simple courthouse wedding… we shall see.


    1. I couldn’t look at any wedding planning templates or books… they would get me overwhelmed and stressed. So I sort of did things my own way. (Whether that was “right” or not, I don’t know and don’t care.)
