Hello, my friends! (And Andrew – I KNOW you read my posts. <3)
I just wanted to pop in and say – wow. Thank you all so much for your very enthusiastic – and many! – responses to my engagement! Y’all are awesome and I think you guys almost broke the internet with so many comments. XD I am so, so excited to share about my life – as an engaged girl, planning a wedding – and next year, as a young wife! I can’t believe it. I can remember quite well when I first started blogging four and a half years ago, and I was determined to blog all the way through my changes. You guys have seen changes. I’ve gone from a super awkward new teenager to an engaged woman (who is still a teenager XD). And you’re going to see more changes, Lord willing!
OH MY GOODNESS, YOU GUYS. I have greatly anticipated this blog post! I am so excited, I almost don’t know what to say. But if you found out on my Instagram, the rumors are true – I. AM. ENGAGED. This is no prank, no test – it’s the truth and I am so blissfully happy!
*takes a deep breath*
I’m sure you all want to hear the juicy details, especially since most of you had no idea I was even in a relationship, right? So let me give y’all some backstory and tell you about the proposal, and then I’m planning to make a little blog series. 😀
Hello, friends! Oh my goodness, I AM SO EXCITED TO SHARE THESE PICTURES WITH YOU. My aunt gave me some fairy lights and I had the brilliant idea to play around with some pictures in the dark. Well, I did. And guess what: I LOVED it! My friend Ceci was coming over to model for shoot and I had another brilliant idea: use her as a guinea pig to do cool stuff with fairy lights AND sunsets! And I did, and AHHH THE PICTURES TURNED OUT SO WELL.
Greetings, friends! It is November. I know, what riveting information! But seriously guys, how did we get to the eleventh month of the year? O.o I certainly don’t know, believe me! Anyway, per usual, I’m here to review my goals for last month and set some goals for this month.
Last month was…interesting. I had a lovely and exciting first weekend, and then for the next 2 and a half weeks, I slumped like no one has ever slumped before. In all seriousness, it was pretty bad. I was very low, very unmotivated, and started consolation eating. Guys, I gained six pounds, and my weight never fluctuates like that! Pretty much all I did was mope around, sleep, and eat, and that was not healthy mentally, physically, or spiritually. My walk with God suffered, my productivity suffered,
I became a fat blimp, and I neglected to find joy.
Hello, my friends! Wow, look – a picture that doesn’t have a light and airy white background! Anyway. I am here today on this lovely dark and dismal Saturday to announce that my best friend Allison just released her SECOND poem book, and today I’ll be attempting to gather my thoughts and review it as a part of her blog tour! NOW, I know that your default MIGHT be to click off this email or post because ugh, a book review, seriously? I mean, they’re nice and all, but just a little boring. NO. PLEASE DON’T DO THAT. Because Allison is ALSO running a giveaway and you have to read all the way down AND COMMENT to enter the giveaway, and it features FUZZY SOCKS. AND TEA. And oh, her book too, did I mention that? And my review is going to feature pretty pictures and mindblowing quotes so you’d better click to read the rest. Come on, guys!
Hello, my friends! I regret to inform you of a terrible fact: tomorrow it will be October. What in tarnation? HELP. It was just September!
Okay, I’m looking forward to a few things this month, but still. Not a fall fan. I know, I know. I’m outnumbered by all the people who absolutely LOOOOVE fall and can’t WAIT to pull out their layers and boots and have already been drinking cider and pumpkin spice lattes and have pumpkins on their doorsteps and, yeah. But I’m the one who holds fast to summer and warmth.
Hello, friends! I have decided to start doing monthly goal posts (goalposts XD) again! Mostly to motivate myself, but I’d love if y’all shared your goals with me in the comment section!
This month mainly I’m hoping to get on track and in a good routine for the fall. Hard to believe it’s already here! September is going to be a busy month for me, with photoshoots, a book sale, my mom’s birthday, and also life stuff!
