Hello all of my wonderful followers. Some of you may have noticed I haven’t been around in a while (then again, maybe you haven’t). I think it’s been due to a feeling of self defeat and discouragement. Or maybe it was finding out that if I downgrade my blog account (like I had been planning) […]

Weight Loss|Lifestyle

I think one of the biggest mistakes I’ve made and continue to make, is that I am always giving myself a dead line. “Lose [this amount of] weight by this event!” “You just have to get down three more lbs by this date!” “Lose just a little more so you can wear that new bathing suit on your honeymoon!” […]

Bridal Shower|Lifestyle

Two weekends ago I was given the most BEAUTIFUL Bridal Shower ever. It was small, intimate, and exactly what I wanted.

Soul Searching|Lifestyle

I’ve been doing a lot of soul-searching lately. I find that sometimes it’s really easy for [us] to forget how lucky we are. The truth is, I make all these plans and resolutions about how I am going to “fix” myself and I never actually get around to doing it. I just kind of acknowledge […]
