Wedding season is upon us. And now with all the social networking sites it’s completely rubbed in the face of us singles. I have friends and family all over facebook sharing their wedding excitement via status updates and pictures. I’m happy for them, truly I am, but truth be known I’m also a little jealous too. Left to envy and wonder when I get to be the one making the plans, picking a dress, and dealing with all the stress and finite details of one of the biggest days of your life.
Perhaps it’s the fact that I’m not getting younger. All my brothers and sisters were married by the time they were my age. Perhaps it’s the anticipation of starting your life with someone. Or it could be that my biological clock is ticking and I’m beginning to long for a family of my own. Who knows. I just have to remember to take a deep breath and a step back and look at the amazing life I do have. A loving boyfriend, incredible opportunities, wonderful friends and my independence. I don’t need a ring or a wedding dress to make my life whole. It’s just a nice thought. Maybe someday.
