Inspiring Blogs: Rising Shining

There were so many helpful blogs out there when Matt and I were planning our nuptials (thank you Kristina, Jamie, Katie, and Meg--to name a few). It felt like I was planning my wedding among friends who were going through the same things around the same time.

That's why I like to periodically showcase blogs to help you connect with other kindred spirits. The blogger that I want to showcase this time is already married, but that's what makes her blog--RisingShining--so great. It includes the nitty-gritty stuff of relationships, such as organizing bank accounts, making a budget, and planning goals.

On her about page, she writes:

Hi! I'm Kelsey, an Austin gal living in the Arizona desert. This is a picture of my husband, Chris, and me leaping in the air, which does amazing things for my fine hair. Besides jumping into the air for the volumizing hair effects, I love library books, wearing an apron, talking about personal finances, and trying to make my suburban home look less ordinary.

I never would have thought that I would want a blog of my own. I'm the kind of person who doesn't like to have a birthday party because I don't want to be the center of attention. And blogging seemed like a very "look at me!" affair. But over the past few years of following several blogs I feel as if I've met these amazing and creative people who I'd love to be friends with if we lived in the same city. I've even had the opportunity to meet one of those amazing people in real life! And so the blog world started to feel very much less "look at me!" and more like a community in which I'd like to take part.

Being quite the planner myself, I especially appreciate getting some insight into how other Linkyoung couples are navigating married life, careers, following their passions, finances, and thinking about starting a family. So rising/shining is my contribution to the conversation.


If you would like your blog to be considered for a spotlight, please:
  1. E-mail me the link
  2. Write a little bit to explain who you are and what your wedding vision is and how you approach the wedding planning process.
  3. OPTIONAL: Attach a relevant photo

I regret that I won't be able to feature every blog that is submitted, but I look forward to browsing every single one of them!
