I started writing this blog as a way to express and vocalize my wedding plans, fears, dreams and anxiety anonymously. Over the months, for various reasons (and because I can't keep a secret, apparently), more and more people that I know started visiting and joining the conversation. I was totally fine with that except I didn't feel comfortable being as open as I had been before and the blog started being more about the pretty with a few rants here and there. I have decided that 1) I don't want to focus on the little details anymore and 2) I don't want to waste my energy ranting. So, with much hesitation, I am going to stop updating {un}Veiled Vows. This blog has seriously changed my life. I mean, really, it has. Half of my good friends in San Diego I have met because of this blog. I can't believe I have only known them for a little over a year! I found something that I truly love, something that I can say that I am good at, and hope will become something I can turn into my full-time career soon. I have been introduced to many creative people and creative ideas. It makes me so happy that a world of open-minded, unique, creative couples and vendors really does exist and that there is an open, intelligent conversation going on about marriage and what it means to get married. So it does make me sad to be leaving it but I really want to spend the last couple of weeks of my engagement focusing on my husband-to-be and working on our new life together instead of thinking of what aspect of the planning I should blog about or worrying about nasty commenters. I will still be talking about (other peoples') weddings over at Sweet Emilia Jane because I do really still love weddings. I might come back after July 3rd and tell ya how it all went down.

Thank you so much for sticking with me through this and for all your insight and advice. You guys rock. xoxo.

Aw, say it ain't so, miss! I am saddened by this news, as I wish I had found your blog earlier in my wedding planning journey, but I completely understand your reasoning.

The best of luck to you and I'm keeping you on my reader in great anticipation of at least a few wedding deets :)
