Life's Crazy Changes

Have you ever felt like you are completely on the outside of something you used to be apart of? I should probably start off by saying that I love my life and the people in it. I couldn't be happier to marry Kyle and start a new adventure, but as I sit here visiting old memories and flipping through the past, I can't help but notice how completely different my life feels.

It feels like there is this whole other world out there that I maybe wasn't part of but certainly wasn't completely disconnected from. Leaving Mesa, going to college and starting to discover who I am has now left me very disconnected from the life and people I was once so accustomed to. I feel like I am on a completely different path than everyone at this point. The friends I once had and have lost connection with, and even the ones I keep in touch with from high school, are on this fast track of life with 5 years of marriage under their belt, kids and the whole shabang where as the friends I made in college and currently hang out with are mostly single and not planning marriage for quite some time. So this leaves me feeling a bit lost.

It's just quite weird to think that 7 years ago I was in high school hanging out with and socializing with one community of people, then skip ahead a few years and a whole new set of friends has come into the mix, most old ones are no longer top of mind and fast forward a few more years to the present and many friendships from the middle ground are fading and high school friendships are mostly long gone. I understand that is all part of growing up and coming into your own, but I see some friends from college, and even high school, who still have many of the same friends and are still on the same page and wonder how did I get so far on the outside of everything?

I guess it's just hard to realize that something you were once part of and so connected with is really just foreign territory now. I don't care one bit to go back to high school and not so much college either, but it sure would be nice to have some more of those older friendships and to feel connected to that again.


Very shortly after we got engaged I created this great site for our friends and family to stay up to date on everything that was going on with the wedding. Well between starting a new job, staying active in my sororities alumnae chapter, spending time with friends and family and actually planning the wedding, I found little time for blogging. I did manage to post a few items here and there but not nearly as much as I had hoped for.

Well the other day I decided to go and post something and my blog was GONE! The company which hosted my Web site, ZooLoo (which is also a former employer), completely revamped their product and got rid of what used to be their blog. So now my posts are gone!! However, being the resourceful person that I am, I contacted a friend who still works there and he is going to try and retrieve them for me.  

With any luck I should have these sometime next week (fingers crossed) and I will see about posting them on here and continuing from where I left off, if not, I will start from scratch and move forward like the happy bride to be that I am :)

You may ask, why is her first post basically about nothing? Well, I didn't want this thing to be all setup but empty of any content, so stay tuned and hopefully I will have some fun posts here next week!

P.S - when I was setting this up I noticed that we are 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days away form the wedding. I thought that was fun!
