- Wedding: April 2014
I entered a photo contest on Facebook for Wedding Paper Divas to win a honeymoon. I have been practically begging my friends and family to vote for us and share the link. Yes we are doing pretty good but not good enough. There were over 600 entries and we are currently #55 which isn’t bad BUT we have to make it to the top 25 to make it to the judges panel. We don’t even have 100 votes yet and this is the third day of voting yet the top ones have like 400!!! HOW?!
Is it wrong of me to be really annoyed? I mean especially at my family…
Back story my cousin is a world record holding swimmer (she’s a beast and super proud of her!) but all my aunts and cousins are constantly sharing links of stories about her yet they can’t share my link? Or I see my family and close friends “liking” this and “sharing” that….why can’t they take 1 minute out of there day to help me out? Ugh….maybe I’m just being selfish.
The most frustrating part is ALL of my Facebook friends know that we have been through a lot in the past year. My fiance and I lost our house due to Hurricane Sandy. We are still currently living with my dad as our house is currently an empty lot. The house was finally demolished in July but still waiting for insurance to start rebuilding. It’s almost a year later and feels like we have gotten nowhere =/ We were almost going to change the wedding date or just go to the courthouse but decided we weren’t going to let the storm ruin our dreams. We are completely footing the bill for our day and have already taken out a personal loan to help pay for so we in no way can afford a honeymoon so winning would mean the world to us but it’s like no one cares….
