Wedding Day Link Up and Other News

Wedding Day Link up with Holly and Mel


Ok, so I'm not married or engaged, but I will be one day (hopefully anyway)! I honestly don't have that many things that I have my heart set on when the day comes. Weddings should embody the couple that is getting married, so big or small, lavish or simple, all weddings really are beautiful in their own way.

Anyway, I have mentioned a little bit about mine and Kyra's relationship, but I will share the basics really quickly...

  • We've been together a little over a year and a half.
  • He's 18 years older than I am and has 3 daughters {20, almost 18, and 13}.
  • Just take a minute to let that sink in...
  • But, he really is the love of my life. Unconventional? Probably. Does it work? Yes, for us anyway. He loves me the way I always hoped and dreamed someone would, and that's all that really matters in the end.

Now that you know the background, I will share the only detail that my heart is pretty much set on...the ring. I want something that is a little off traditional, like our relationship.

It's a champagne sapphire set in rose gold, and it's heavenly.  It looks like an engagement ring, but with a twist, just like Kyra and me. We act like a regular couple, but there's a bit of a twist with our age difference. 

If any of you are wondering, yes I plan on marrying Kyra (he knows this and feels the same), and yes I have shown him and my mother this ring.

I think I am going to start running. I have already downloaded a Couch to Half Marathon app and MapMyRun to my phone. I'm nervous though! I have never been a consistent runner. I have had knee/hip pain when I have run before, so I'm apprehensive. If you have any advice, helpful info, apps, links, anything, PLEASE SHARE! Thank you SO MUCH in advance :)


  1. 18 years? Eh, as long as you're happy, who cares? ;) You're a darling couple!
    I LOVE that ring!
    I have hip pain when I run too. Like, bad. Guess what I found that works? I wear my spanx when I run. I've been wanting to try compression capris from Old Navy, but I haven't made it over there yet. Last week for my 5K, I wore them just to keep things smooth (since I was wearing white), and when I was running, and after...no hip pain! It was a miracle! Just go slow, listen to your body, and have fun!

    1. Thank you so much! And, I will definitely keep the spanx/compression gear in mind to reduce hip pain! I am starting my running plan next week!

  2. I die - we want the SAME ring!!!!!

    And hooray on running! Be sure to stretch before and after you run, Runners World has AMAZE articles on all things running, and lastly, have fun. No matter how fast or far you go - you are still running and it counts :)
