Mushy and gushy

As I journey through my twenties I realize that I've become increasingly emotional. Maybe it's because I've become more aware of my emotions, I don't know. I tear up at commercials, silly reality TV shows, and everything in between. Don't even get me started on those ASPCA commercials.

Ever since seeing our e-pics a few days ago I've been on the verge of tears every time some one makes a comment about them. The amount of love surrounding us and this wedding is astonishing. Ugh I could cry right now!

My family isn't overly (or overtly for that matter) emotional, so I didn't grow up with constant hugs and fuzzy feelings. I knew I was loved, I always told my mom that I loved her and I always got a goodnight kiss, but there just wasn't a lot of mushy stuff. As I've grown older, and especially as my relationship with Josh has grown, I've learned that it's OK to express my emotions. Josh's family is MUCH more touchy-feely and emotional. They always greet me with a hug and a kiss. They're not afraid to cry when the mood strikes. It's a nice change of pace.

I guess this is all to say, to everyone on here who commented, to my friends/family to commented and emailed, and to everyone who said something to me in person, Thank You. Your kind words now and throughout this entire process so far have meant more to me than you'll ever know.

Is anyone else feeling especially mushy throughout your planning or is it just me?


  1. I cry and cry too! Those dog commercials get me every time...every time I see someone exchanging vows on TV or on the Internet, every time I leave Ryan (even if I'm going to see him in 6 days)....I've been really emotional too! Weird how it does that to you.

  2. aw.. quite okay to be mushy and aware of your emotions - as you're more open, people connect to you more too. Can't wait for the wedding.

  3. Eh, we are just a mushy family!

    BTW - I awarded you on my blog, nothing fancy just a shout out :)

  4. Nothing wrong with a little mush and gush every now and again! ;) I am TERRIBLE with commercials/movies with animals...ASPCA, Pedigree name eyes immediately start welling up!

    And by the way, as you can see I'm stalking your blog a bit today as well ;)
