You may have noticed I haven’t posted as much lately, or the content hasn’t been robust as you’ve seen in the past, and for that I am sorry. It’s not because the blog isn’t important to me, as it is incredibly important to me, but life has been much more important lately.
I don’t feel super comfortable sharing my personal life on the blog, but I also think blogs make life look a little too perfect and I know we all have our slew of problems, so just thought I’d share a snippet into my life.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I moved. I won’t be going into detail here on the blog, but I moved out of my house and into my own little place on Saturday. Life has been a roller coaster lately, but I am incredibly grateful for my beautiful friends and family and I feel so lucky to be a woman who has supportive female friends.
For example, one friend came to my apartment on Saturday and brought literally every single supply necessary to make (spiked) hot cocoa. She even brought HOMEMADE peppermint and bourbon (not a combo, two separate) marshmallows. H – maybe you can share the recipes you used with the crowd! She brought the mugs, the pot, the whisk, the cocoa, the coconut milk, etc. If that’s not a true friend then I don’t know what is. Another friend has consistently cooked for me and made me get out of the house. Those same two friends, plus another, unpacked all of my boxes for me this weekend and I didn’t even have to ask.
Then another friend brought me champagne, an orchid, and some chocolate as a house-warming gift, and my best friends from home sent me beautiful Christmas flowers which are now sitting pretty on my mantle in my (empty) living room. Friends and family from afar have sent care packages, sweet notes, texts, etc. I don’t know what I did to deserve such people in my life, but boy did I hit the jackpot. And for them, I have so much love in my heart. I am so thankful to God for this silver lining.
So…. now that that’s all out of the way, maybe over the next month or so, in addition to fashion posts, I will share with you some posts about decorating my new place. What do you think? Something you might be interested in? I am an interior design novice, but I do enjoy trying my hand at it, so I think it would be fun to share with you guys. To give you a sneak peek of where I am going with the design, I bought this in the 40″ x 40″ size for my living room!
Thank you for reading and visiting – big hugs to everyone!!!!!
