I’m Back?!

Heeeeeeey Guuuuuuuys, I’m back! Hopefully for a longer time than last. I am really excited to announce that I will begin blogging again. Maybe it’s the cooler weather or the fact that I miss it, but lately i’ve been feeling more inspired to get it back up and running again.

First, I want to address why I even stopped blogging in the first place. We all hear those typical reasons of being busy and such, but for me, it was more because I felt like the things I was posting weren’t me. Sure, I believed in everything I wrote, but I didn’t feel like it was my style.

If you were following me before you knew I tried to post 2 times a week usually Tuesdays and Saturdays. At first, it seemed like a great way to ensure I was delivering content, but then it became almost a burden and like an obligation that I had to post something on those days. When that started happening, I found myself just posting stuff to post stuff. And that was when I starting losing passion and interest for blogging.

So this time around I have decided to not have a schedule. So that means you are not going to know when I will post but that just adds to the realness of my blog. I want to blog about things that happen in my life, and life as we all know, is unpredictable.

I hope you enjoyed this little update post. This was just a way for me ease back into blogging again. I am really excited to get back in the swing of things and I would just like to thank those who have stuck with me.
XOXO,

Enjoy the Little Things

With life moving so quickly, it’s easy to get swept up in the frenzy of things. Sometimes we’re so busy we don’t notice the moments that make life so special, and when we do, we tend to take it for granted. Life is, after all, made up of moments, and usually these moments are the little things that people don’t usually realize. So before they’re completely unappreciated I wanted to share my favorite moments.

►being loved and in love
►making babies laugh
►singing along to the car radio
►looking at raindrops travel across your car window
►when people remember you after meeting you only once
►when someone remembers the things you say
►hugs from behind
►holding hands
►the smell after it rains
►sleeping on freshly washed sheets
►being with the person you love
►a hot shower on a cold day
►looking through old photographs
►when strangers thank you after you hold the door for them
►a compliment from a stranger
►making someone smile
►seeing someone’s soft side
►fresh starts
►good morning kisses
►a person’s sleepy voice
►seeing old couples still in love

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and reminded you that life is made up of moments. Remember, “Good things come in small packages.”
XOXO,
