So another blog on the wedding planning is sorely overdue, I thought I would regale you with the tale of finding a dress. Now I haven’t ‘found’ the dress persay but the adventure of finding one has been interesting to say the least.
I always thought I’d be more excited about finding shoes for the wedding than my actual dress. Continue reading “White dresses”
In time you will find that to be happy with someone else, you first need to not need that person, you will find also that the person you love, or think you love, who doesn’t want to have anything to do with you, is not the person for your life.

If you didn’t know I live in Thailand…read here….and here…and here…and if you’ve decided you’d like to be my stalker check here. Yes I actually live and work in Thailand.
I never dressed up as a bride as a child…not once. I liked to get white dresses dirty. All through elementary, junior high and high school, not once did I ever give weight to the thought of getting married.
