The last time I we spoke I was dishing on how to prepare for your upcoming holiday party here. After that, I went completely MIA (“missing in action”), but hear me out, it was for good cause. The holidays transitioned into one of the most stressful times – my family endured some pivotal changes, and our bond was tested. My 9 to 5 started to demand a bit more and my mental capacity went into autopilot.
By mid-to-late December, I was struggling to make it into 2022…
Thank God for a little thing called PTO! I was able to take a much-needed break from work and refocus on what keeps me grounded, steadily inspired and grateful.
Initially, I had no plan to take a hiatus from blogging; however, the decision came naturally. When I find myself forcing content, I take a step back and marinate on the next steps. This (particular) marination took over a month.
But, ya girl is back…
On January 6th, I celebrated another trip around the Sun. I spent my special day getting lost in museums/art galleries, indulging in my first Byredo purchase and gobbling down some tasty eats. Very Capricorn, no?
I also got engaged!
I’m so excited to see what 2022 will offer. 2021 was nothing short of amazing! I was challenged (continuously) but, in the end, life always seemed to turn what we see as chaos into a valid lesson. I’m thankful for growth and the chance to witness the turn of a new chapter. But, as always, I remain happy to be able to share my journey with you.
The sky is the limit and we can only go up from here. Thank you so much for the continued support!
