Pretty Things

I've been eyeing this dress for a while, and it just so happens to be on SALE now! I think it's perfect for what I'm looking for. I love the scalloped neckline and delicate lace.

My favorites from Catbird. Rob suggested we look at their rings tonight, and I'm so fucking excited. I've been waiting for this! The Sakura holds more significance for me: it symbolizes the place where Rob and I met, had our first date, where he proposed, and where we will get married! So I think it's the shoo-in choice.

More rings. This time wedding bands, which are still so delightful, whimsical, and far from boring. Plus I just love their names. I'm having a harder time choosing from these, but I think it'll be one of the first two.

Intimate Thoughts

Since Rob and I are eloping, we won't be shocking ourselves with the stressand expenseof a big wedding, but of course we still want to do something to celebrate. Like a "minimoon" while we plan and save for our ideal honeymoon. But believe it or not, it's been incredibly frustrating trying to find a resort on Okinawa that's romantic enough! Unfortunately, many are built like concrete fortresses to withstand the typhoons that regularly batter the island. AKA UGLY AF. And the ones that do offer even a mediocre amount of aesthetic appeal cost way more than their worth. Can you imagine paying $500 per person, per night for no more than a glorified Holiday Inn?? UMM... NO.

I found Hoshinoya on Taketomi Island, but even the prices there are a little... unjustifiable. Just a little, though. (It is a 5-star resort.) Not to mention, Taketomi is gorgeous, and I've always wanted to visit. Plus, we'll be doing exactly what I want, which is the art of nothing. Just relaxing on a small, quiet island. It's not completely out of our budget either, but we might as well go all out elsewhere, like Tokyo.

So after discussing our options today, Rob and I plan to share a nice lunch and watch Dr. Strange on our wedding day. (Or is it elopement day?) As much as we'd love a minimoon, we think it's best not to pressure ourselves. Because no matter what we do, our wedding day will be special. We just have to focus on what truly matters: our love for each other.

Hello World

Hello! It's me again.

To be honest, I've lost count of the number of times I've tried to maintain a blog. It's not that I lack an interest in blogging itself--I'm just so lazy! I always start with great gusto and motivation... then it dwindles to procrastination, until I end up hating myself for not keeping up with the things I want to do.

My life is pretty simple—I don't have many fancy things to share. Regardless, I need an outlet to express myself: a place where I can write about happy moments and new chapters. Having a blog to look back to would accomplish just that. Thinking about all the memories I'll be able to treasure... I hope milkgloss will stick around. I'll definitely give my best this time!
