Blogtember: Day 2


It’s that time again!  What time?  Blogtember time!

Wednesday, September 4: If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do?


Three months off!?  That doesn’t seem nearly long enough to do all the things I would love to pack into my days.  Alas, this is fictional, so I will play along with the three month time frame.  If I had three months off from my current life, I would spend two weeks traveling to one or two amazing vacation spots.  I like to think Hawaii, and obviously use my private jet to get there, hopefully shortening the plane ride just a tad.  Hey, we’re dreaming here, right?  Two weeks of a vacation is enough for me, if I only have another two and a half months to be free from all responsibilities! 

I would spend some time (and money) setting up my own educational consulting business, which is a lifelong dream.  If I could give this venture my undivided attention for a month, I bet I would have it up and running in no time, and head back into regular life to gain clients and keep it afloat.

The other month and a half I would use to spend real quality time with friends (from anywhere in the country, so travel time would be included), family, and maybe even some volunteer ventures.  I would love to spend some time really diving into The Word and some more Christian Devotionals, and attend church much more regularly.  The beach, the mountains, tasty restaurants, at least ten great books, and just taking plenty of time to stop and smell the roses and breath in some fresh, clean air, without rushing to my car, to this building, or that appointment.  To really stop and enjoy life before it’s gone.  Time and life are oh-so precious my friends. 


What about you?


My Story: The Short Version


Now’s probably a great time to give everyone (hi new readers!) a little background info on who The 20s Bride is!  There’s a brief synopsis on my food blogging past over on my About Me page, so if you’re interested in that (or information about my other blog), please head on over thurr.  Otherwise sit back, grab a beverage of your choice and let’s get to it.

I am 24 year old, New York native (no, not the city, and no I’m not going to say where), bride to be that’s finding my path in life.  To say that I’ve waited eagerly for the one I was going to marry is an understatement.  I’ve been in several long term (and long distance) relationships that have all taught me many valuable lessons.  I think that should be a post in itself entitled “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” Anywho, I have finally met the man of my dreams, if you will, and we will be getting hitched next September.  Yippee!! Let the planning commence! 

And plan I have.  We’ve been engaged for about 2 months now and we have the venue, DJ, and photographer already booked, along with an engagement party already under our belts.  Not too shabby.  Next stop: honeymoon, invitations, florist, did I mention honeymoon? 😉

I graduated in May of 2011 with my Masters degree in counseling.  I am currently 3 years deep in an office job that I DO enjoy.  Enough said.

I’m trying to learn how to balance life as a 9-5 er, and so far all that has entailed is a whole lotta television.  Dance Moms anyone?  I need a hobby desperately, and decided to channel my inner English degree and blog…again.  I kinda dropped the ball on that the first time, so let’s start fresh.

So now that you know EVERYTHING (ha) there is to know about me…hows about you all? 

Talk to me!
