Buying My Wedding Dress Was Better Than I Could Have Imagined

It really was magical.

Buying My Wedding Dress Was Better Than I Could Have Imagined

I’ve never been the girl who liked herself in any clothes really. I have despised my body and the way it looks in any outfit, especially dresses.

This is why I fully expected the day I went wedding dress shopping to be full of tears - not happy ones. I was so happily mistaken.

The experience from beginning to end was really almost magical and surreal. I sifted through the racks of dresses, gathering the ones that caught my eye and anticipated trying each one on.

Before ever coming shopping I had looked online and found a dress I adored, but I just knew my mother would hate. In the store, we saw the dress at the same time and before I could say anything my mother said you’ve got to try it on. I was so surprised! We added it to the other dresses to be tried on.

I tried on several, most were very pretty, but none were ‘it’. I finally put on the dress I had fallen in love with. As soon as the dress was on my body and zipped, I knew it was the one.

I felt beautiful. I felt confident. I felt like a bride.

Still no tears, but there were genuine smiles and a sense of peace, knowing that this was my wedding dress. Even my mother agreed that it was most certainly the one.

It was the most perfect day.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
