Editor’s Letter: Joy


Hello lovely! I’ve been nutting out this letter to you for some time now, and I’m down to the wire as we’re about to go to print! I haven’t wanted to rush when it comes to sharing some bits and pieces that I hope might encourage and inspire you in the relationships around you and in particular with your soon-to-be husband or wife.

I should firstly say hello, how rude of me to jump straight into the deep end! I hope you sense the joy in this issue. We’ve packed it full of pretty colours and wide smiles that have all been captured in the raw, honest moments of this life journey we are all in.

In all honesty, I’ve been feeling like a bit of a hypocrite. Luke and I are so passionate about seeing long lasting relationships (it’s what fuels the fire to keep us going and why white exists) but we’ve been so busy juggling life and trying to keep our heads above water that we’ve been neglecting each other just a tad and need a bit of a shake up! Just for the record, sitting next to each other on the lounge both on laptops does not equal quality time in any sense. I can’t stop and think this is a bit crazy! I know we both love each other deeply and are ever-so committed. We’re in it for the long haul but I think we need to rethink our juggling act.

This might be a battle we all face though? Have you found that when you are passionate about something it brings you so much joy it is incredibly freeing and exciting! It could be planning your wedding or setting up a home, having your own family or in your day-to-day work life. The truth though is that life is about relationship – I know that there is something deep down inside us that is intrinsic and craving acceptance, wanting to be noticed and loved! Yes I think we all want that.

So what am I going to do about it? I could close my laptop now or I could keep working … it doesn’t really matter. I do know we need to sit down for a chat (not when I’m tired) and together work out something so there can be more cuddles and kisses, games, dates and everything in between. I’ll keep you posted on our travels! Hope you can work it out too! Enjoy Issue 33—she’s a beauty!
