Hi babes! It feels soo good to be back here on the blog today!!! There has been lots going on lately so I wanted to share a little life update with you ? I’ve been very quiet on my blog + Instagram over the past few months. I am so sorry to those who have missed my posts – I want you to know that I truly appreciate your love and support more than you know!
The truth is, I just needed a break!
Back in December, Peter and I moved out of our apartment and have been living with his parents ever since. People look at me like I’m crazy when I tell them I am living with my in-laws! But Peter’s parents are amazing and it’s been such a blessing. Why did we move? We are finally building a house! We have been looking for a home ever since we moved back to Vegas in November of 2016. Our original closing date on the new house was April 30, 2018. Then we got news that their is an issue with the city permitting and now they hope we will be in our house by September. I feel beyond blessed that we found a home we love so however long it takes to get into it – I will always be so grateful but that doesn’t mean it’s not frustrating at times, right?! Now, I am telling you all this because I have felt like a hot mess ever since we moved lol. I am an extremely organized person, if something doesn’t have a designated place or reason for use – it’s gone! Lately, I never know where anything is, my schedule is all over the place, etc.
Meanwhile, there were some other things going on in life (with Peter’s business, not our relationship!) that Peter and I really had to press into the Lord and fully give Him all of our worries. And He is so so good, you guys!
With all that being said, it is so so important to know yourself and know when you need to take a step back from something (whether that’s social media, a certain relationship, alcohol, whatever is may be) and focus on the greater purpose that God has for your life. We are all in charge of our own happiness! I always want my blog to a fun, creative, useful, encouraging outlet for not only me, but hopefully others as well.
Change is hard. Change is also amazing and needed. I am trying everyday to walk through this season of life full of joy. Really focusing on seeking + spreading love, kindness and encouragement! My New Year’s goals are coming out a few weeks late but I feel so excited to get back to blogging, connecting with you, sharing the great moments of life and the not so great ones too ?? Is there anything in particular you would like to see more (or less) of from me?! Shoot me a DM on Instagram – would love to chat!
Thank you so much for stopping by to read, friends! Missed ya xox ?
