(((hugs))) oh RedHerring – I totally am not sharing your shoes, but I can imagine how hard it must be!

You’re totally right, a lot of us DO take for granted that the person who drives us crazy is really someone we’re fortunate to have in our lives. I think I needed that reminder today… thanks. 🙂

I can’t really say I know exactly what you’re going through but I’m planning my wedding alone too.  My fiance and I moved across the country and haven’t made friends in our  new home. At first I was glad to be able to plan in peace, without everyone giving me their two cents but now I really wish my mom and sister were here, even though we have totally different taste and wouldn’t even agree on anything. I just crave the interaction and connection.

I can’t say I know what you’re going through, but thought you deserved a big **HUG** over the internet!

Hi redherring, ((HUGS!!)). While I can’t know what it’s like to miss having my parents, I miss their presence and interest at this time very much. My parents work halfway around the world and DON’T like wedding ‘nonsense’, and FH and I are long-distance. His parents are thousands of miles away, as are my best friends. I’m not having a wedding party, so yeah – I’m planning alone for a while.

In spite of all the media hype, from these boards & personal experience I’m realizing wedding planning/dreaming can be lonely. Thank goodness for WB. I hope you are taking good care of yourself and finding support here! I’m sending loving thoughts your way 🙂
