I'm getting married TODAY and obviously I pre-wrote this post in anticipation for the big day but I wanted to go ahead and use the little free time I had before "I-Do Day" to say a big THANK YOU, to each and every one of you!!
I have been following wedding blogs pretty regularly and don't comment too often but through this process, a small comment can mean a big thing! I realized this when Emily Ayer now Thomas, from Em for Marvelous posted after her wedding how much she appreciated her readers comments throughout the whole wedding process and although I chimed in closer to the end I still appreciated the fact that I was acknowledge which meant she acknowledge that I loved giving feedback.
So here I am, wanting to give each and everyone of you a hug for your readership, friendship and support throughout this experience. I started this blog as an outlet for myself, to write about the wedding process so that I didn't have to bother anyone with the details that didn't want to know the details. It allowed me to vent and gave me a calm satisfaction. Slowly, I gained followers and readers and it was such an exciting thing to see! I've had over 7500 views of my blog, and although that's nothing compared to most, I'm very proud of it. Thank you for your excitement and for just reading along and being part of the journey, it really meant a lot when things got hectic!
I want to thank my fellow Southern Bride Blog ladies: Megan, who became my most frequent commenter, and Kate for being less than a month away from her own wedding, thank you both for the endless kind words and support! I want to thank Em for allowing me to follow her and her feedback, and my new follower, Lauren, especially after we recently met at a wedding and shared our experience thus far! Also Miss Rachel for being there in the beginning even though she's now a fancy lawyer ;) I also know that Celeste, Megan, Meredith, and Lauren pop in from time to time. Also I have to thank my real life friends, Meghan, Mandy, and Christa for following and appreciating my venture into the blogging world! (I know y'all read because you bring it up in conversation, so thanks a million!!)
I can't wait to marry my best friend and hope to see where I can take blogging in the future.. I also can't wait to fill y'all in on bridal portraits, my wedding dress, and other fun things I have waited to share!
Thank you again, to each and every one of you, whether your presence is known or not, I know you may have read these posts from time to time and I thank you a million times over.
I shall see you all on my return from the honeymoon as MRS. NICK DILLMAN :)
