In With The Old

I'm going to take a different approach to this blog. I haven't been feeling it lately. To be honest, every time I think about posting I find twenty five other things to do instead. I asked myself last night why I was avoiding it; I love the whole creative aspect of writing posts and looking out for new trends and clever ideas. What the hell is my problem?

Then it hit me like a bag of sand; I am not a flowery talker in real life. Let me elaborate here for a second. I do NOT use smiley faces and exclamation marks in all of my communications. They're scarce if ever there at all. The word "lovely" I use only in sarcasm and the cornball notion of meeting Prince Charming and a fairy tale wedding is seriously nauseating to me. I mean, my gag reflexes start working overtime when I hear those words, and that's no joke.

I like pretty things. I like original ideas. I like photography that can move you to the core. I like realistic do-it-yourself projects that don't cost 10 times more than just buying the stupid thing to begin with. But I'm also a cursing, jive talking brawd from New Jersey who'll take The Clash over Jack Johnson any hour of the day. Name it. So I'm going to get back to who I am, not a prototype of every other wedding blogger on the internet.

I just found your blog today, but I think that may be the best blog post I have read in a long time. That's exactly how I am, too; I like style and pretty things, but I am NOT a butterflies and rainbows person. The world needs a wedding blog that isn't all fairy tale. There's no need to be anything other than who you are. And look, you just gained a follower from it!

Thanks. That was true and true from the heart.
