Going on Hiatus (for a Pretty Good Reason)

So here I am, it’s Sunday evening – May 2nd. I just got back from my second and final wedding shower – the fiance is unpacking a  food processor and I’m sitting on the couch, thinking about how much my life has changed over the past 12 months – thinking about how incredibly blessed I am to have so many amazing friends – a loving and supportive family, and an amazing woman I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with. A lot of thinking and preparation for what surely will be the most amazing (and insane) week of my life.

My life, in short, has been absolutely non-stop since this time last year. May 2nd, 2009 looked night-and-day different than what my life is today, and I would have never in a million years have expected to be where I am right now, getting married, running my own business, living a passionate and fulfilling life every single day.

I don’t have a whole lot to say today – my mind is wandering as I set out to embark on this next amazing step in my life’s journey. But from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank every single one of you who has supported me, challenged me to be at my best, and accepted me when I might fall short every now and then. This spans an audience of great “online” friends I’ve made over the past 12 months, those of you who are out there reading but may have never said a word in the comments or to me personally, all the way down to my Mom, who reads my blog religiously (and passed out Life Without Pants t-shirts at my wedding shower).

All of you, every single one, have made this such an incredible experience for me. You’ve helped me discover my passion for writing, you’ve given me the (both direct and indirect) push I’ve needed to make life-changing and at times, terrifying decisions. You guys have done more for me than I could possibly put into words.

Also I want to let you all know that this post is my last for a bit – I’m unplugging from the blogging world to enjoy this joyous time in my life, do a little (lot) of writing for an upcoming book, spend time with the people I love, get myself married, have an incredible honeymoon, and take a much needed break from the web.

In the foreseeable future (around here) I’ve got some amazing people who will be filling my shoes and taking the reigns of Life Without Pants with some AWESOME guest posts – you will not be disappointed.

Again, thank you guys so much – you’re the best…but you already knew that. Until later, my friends…
