Man, what a year. To think of where 2018 started and how it finished is just about as different as night and day. I’m going to focus this blog post on personal (instead of the photo business) because I haven’t shared personally in awhile, and tbh it just seems more important.
2017 ended with me frustrated and a little broken. I resolved to cut out the people in my life who were toxic, and you know me… when I set my mind to something you can bet on me to follow through. So… this quote sums it up:
As the ball dropped one year ago, I was in the middle of my self-love period which included (but not limited to) all the me time I wanted, coffee dates with myself, therapy sessions, getting back into the kitchen, pottery classes, family time, solo road trips, etc. Early this year, I flew to NYC to visit friends, Colorado to see my sister, back to NYC, then LV for boys’ weekend… recharging and recharging… getting back to the ME that I seemed to have lost on 2017 (and 2016 if we’re being honest, and we are).
|(I finally chose this to illustrate that paragraph… the runners-up are at the end of this post… enjoy!)|
I can’t even count how many times I heard the phrase “you’ll find someone when you stop looking.” Not that my life was a mission to find someone, because it wasn’t. I was doing great with my friends, and with myself… but I still heard that on the weekly. What I didn’t expect, is that I DID find someone! I found a pretty exceptional someone. Y’all know what happened next (if you don’t, read about my proposal here).
The rest of the year has been a lot LOT like the first half: movie nights, road trips, family time, flights, homemade dinners… I just happened to add a hot, funny, talented partner to hang with while I do all the things.
I’m thankful for those of you who hung around this blog, or are back. I like having friends/family/followers who keep up with this – Hi! Let’s do cool shit in 2019 yeah? My resolutions are coming up in the next post!
Talk to you soon,
