- Wedding: August 2012
It was bound to happen.
We come here because we’re looking for some sort of crafting idea ‘how can I light this _____ without a ___’ or ‘my niece doesn’t understand place cards but I could have sworn that _____’ and then we ALL get sucked into the many different stories. Even the dudes, both efianced or not. We give advice because we think we can, we read blog posts and give our take because we feel we should, and we feel like these ladies have been a part of our lives for a few months becuase they actually have been…and some of us stay here for years because its a welcome respite and an actual culture and that we are all, well, grateful for.
I too wanted to say (I have read my share of ‘i heart the bee’) THANK YOU. I had a truly awful day today and while I did email and text my IRL friends, my next thought was to come here because I knew that I would get such a better perspective than I could anywhere else. I have, and then I paid it forward with more support. Like the bee is about.
Damn it if we don’t bitch like sorority sisters and if we could take each other out when we bumped our knees, we would. So instead we pour glasses of wine remotely and refresh-refresh-refresh, waiting for our new friends to respond.
Thank you to the bees, to the editors……and to the lurkers that have yet to post. You will. And we’ll be waiting to hear your stories and help you when you, too, have a rotten day. It’s a special place. 🙂
ps. There are many girls that I specifically want to thank…but hopefully you know who you are. If not, call me out. Oh wait, YOU WILL. 😉
