In the last few years, some of my favorite content on Yow Yow! has been through some of my own experiences. Typically, when something happens, Instagram will get the exclusive first in that moment, but Yow Yow! will get the deep dive into it all maybe just a few months later. This past fall, two of my favorite girls – Ashley and Jennie – got engaged! You may know them as the women I am always referencing in “Wedding Mondays” post. Both of them got engaged while I was traveling on the East Coast for work and when I got the infamous texts with the photos of their respective rings, I was fast asleep as I was always three hours ahead. Obviously, I was excited for my girls, but I experienced a lot of FOMO as well and it was sort of a reality check that I was away from people that I cared about and have been for a few years now!
Shortly after her engagement, Ashley asked me to become one of her bridesmaids! You never know it’s going to be you until you actually get asked though so the arrival of said box above was the greatest package I had ever received. This is my first time being a bridesmaid for one of my friends and hopefully not the last. I’m taking this job very seriously though and though I don’t know what I’m doing, I will somehow be incredibly knowledgeable in being a great bridesmaid to Ash haha. We haven’t discussed any plans to document this wedding journey yet, but we’ve got a whole year to go so who knows what could happen.
