Hi waiting bees!! I just wanted to give you all a big hug and let you know that I was thinking about you. This time of year is tough if you are a waiting bee…and Facebook certainly doesn’t help.
I so remember what it’s like to be in your situation. And it’s okay to be sad/disappointed/jealous/whatever other emotion you aren’t suppose to have.
Tomorrow is a new day…and Tuesday is a new year. Make it the best one yet for you.

- Wedding: August 2015 - Alexander Homestead
@coolbride125: Can’t thank you enough for this sweet and thoughtful post. I have a confession to make. I am new to WeddingBee (just joined less than an hour ago!) and I was never one of those that had a dream wedding dress, dream wedding ring, dream wedding destination in mind. I actually thought I would be single until age 50 and had completely come to peace with the idea when I met my SO. We have been dating since Aug 2006 and we had a long distance relationship (LDR) the entire time. He is moving to my city at the start of this new year and had been househunting and soon will be applying for a new job. Just this weekend on Sunday before Christmas he asked me what was my ring size and what sort of engagement ring had I thought I would like and while we have always had very wide open lines of communication throughout our relationship and have done a lot of talking about life as a married couple, around when would we like to think about having children, etc, talk about my ring size and ring type made it all seem so CLOSE! From sunday to today I have been researching types of rings I would like, went to Zales to find out my ring size, and just seem to have Enagement on the brain!
I probably should be more patient with myself since it doesn’t help that I just went to a friend’s wedding Dec 1, an elementary school friend of mine got engaged on Dec. 2, my business partner got engaged on Dec 15, my best friend from college got engaged Dec 22, , and another friend from high school got engaged on Christmas Day! I feel like I am drowning in proposals, engagement parties, wedding planning, and the like and now I can’t get it off my brain! I have this nagging feeling my SO plans to propse on my 30th birthday but that is not until Sept 2013 and the thought of it being almost a year away now is driving me crazy! I am praying this fixation on the idea will pass and that this is just part of the normal process. It is so wonderful to find an online community like WeddingBee to find others that have been in the same situation and to read their thoughts and stories from their perspectives.
I said alllll of that to say, again, thank you for your thoughtfulness, especially for newebee Waiting Bees like myself.
I pray you and your family had a wonderful holiday and have a Happy and Prosperous New Year! <3
