I know it’s been a couple months since a new blog post but sometimes life just gets in the way. It’s been especially tough to come back from the most beautiful wedding ever and an amazingly blissful 2-week honeymoon in Italy to sit down and get straight back into blogger mood. But if there’s anything I’ve learned recently, it’s to follow where my heart is, take a deep breath, bring my concerns to God, and to relax a bit more.
Many of you know that I’m currently in the process of planning my wedding. Actually, by now there are only 2 months till the big day! There have been a lot of requests for me to write about different aspects of my wedding planning but to be honest, I’ve been a bit hesitant to write these types of personal posts.
first of all, happy new year! i can’t believe it is 2016 and i am sincerely thankful for all of you who are still reading and following this blog.
2015 was a crazy ride. a lot happened in my personal and professional life that has continued to shape me. looking back, i feel grateful and humbled from the lessons i’ve learned in 2015 and look forward to bettering myself and those around me in 2016. here are some things i am reminding myself while i think back to this past year:
there’s no doubt there has been a lot of movement in my life recently. an upcoming wedding, a burgeoning blog, a full-time job, going back to school, friendships, faith, inner discovery– all the usual things. for a while, i’ve been feeling like my plate has been way too full and i’m constantly trying to keep up.
hola! i’m in mexico for the week because i really really really needed a break.
there is so much going on in my life right now and i really needed time to decompress and just relax. i apologize if you haven’t heard back from me or are waiting for my response on something, i’ll get back to you as soon as i have a moment to destress.
i feel as though life lately has been one huge “fast forward” and even though the day-to-day mundane can get me down sometimes, more often i find myself taking moments to appreciate the past year and really being thankful. this year has been crazy, enlightening, stressful, good, not-so-good.
