Marriage and Blogging

If you haven’t been reading me from the beginning, you may not know that I used to be a wedding blogger.

The night Brad proposed

About four months after Brad proposed, I was browsing wedding blogs over Christmas break and dreaming about how our wedding would be. On one of the wedding boards I was reading, someone shared a link to a blog post about a bride who wore beautiful green shoes (I have zero hope of finding that exact post again, but I know it still exists!). After spending a couple of hours scouring the blogs and reading about the wedding plans that the “garden” of bloggers were making, I saw that they were looking for bride bloggers so I applied. My first post as “Lilac Bud” went live on January 20, 2010.

Over 120 posts and two years, I shared my thoughts, plans, stories and pictures with a garden of women in the same boat. But it became clear to me that since becoming Mrs. K, my time to write and thoughts to share were dwindling. I shifted my focus to this blog.

Today, I said goodbye to the garden as “Lilac Blossom” and shared some final thoughts on love, life and marriage. You can find them here.

It felt like our first year of marriage flew by.

Until now.

Our first anniversary is in 11 days. It somehow seems like May is going in slow motion though.

I may not be blogging as a wedding planning, marriage advice giving flower anymore, but I will still share some highlights of married life.

One thought on “Marriage and Blogging

  1. That’s actually a really good idea. Reading your post, I realised that I’ve been getting all excited about the wedding but actually, not given as much thought as I could have done for afterwards. It’s like all the planning, organising, and stuff has been leading up one big moment, with nothing beyond. Should probably be preparing for marriage too!
