Little Things

The One Where We Were On A Break + Little Things

06-02-2016

Hello friends, it’s been a minute! 60,480 minutes to be exact.

I decided to take a month(ish) long blogging break for a few reasons. First of all, I have been absolutely insanely busy. Probably more so than I have ever been since living out here. And I don’t like forced blogging or creating content solely because I need something to post each week. So instead of giving you a half-hearted post throughout my crazy month I decided to wait til I could put my whole heart back into it. I also was a little burned out. My creative juices weren’t flowing and my inspiration was completely blocked. I realized that this time last year was when I hit my blogging burnout and then a month later turned it into this new revamped blog you see now! I’m not revamping anything this time around, but I have allowed myself to be ok with taking breaks. As much as I love this blog and have high hopes for it’s future, it is not my entire life. I do it for fun. I do it because it makes me happy. And the moment that stops and it becomes a chore, is the moment I have to stop. Breaks are important. Physical, mental, personal. All the breaks matter. So I took this break and after about a week or so of wrestling with myself, I allowed myself to be ok with it. I am proud of what I have put into this blog over the past (almost) year and am excited to see where it goes! I’m glad I took a much needed break but I am so so happy to be back and can’t wait to create more content for y’all!

And just because my blog took a break doesn’t mean the little things did! There were plenty of things that made me happy during this crazy busy month. For starters I bought a car. WHAT?! I did. It was one of the most stressful, adult, long and draining experiences of my life but I am so proud to say I did it! After a million calls to my parents, test drives, budget stretches, and research after research after more research, I finally found a car. A friend was a SAINT and helped me through the actual paperwork, because no matter how much you know, dealerships will absolutely take advantage of a first time buyer single female :/ After all of this, my best advice to anyone looking to get a car is: tell everyone and ask everything. There are no stupid questions (or at least no question they haven’t heard before), you never know who knows someone who knows someone who is a car broker on the side, and even Frankie Muniz shops at Carmax. On top of that, almost everyone I know has a birthday between April-May. Plus lots of friends and family visited so I got to play host! I went to Disneyland, Harry Potter World and San Diego twice! I started power walking after work, even sometimes before work (who am I?!?!). I went to a fabulously British tea party and got to watch my best friend kick butt at a film festival. I even got to go back home to watch my sister graduate with an architecture degree she earned tenfold. Like I said, busy busy busy. And if I’m being honest, it actually doesn’t really slow down til after July 4th… But it’s my birthday month and that always inspires me 😉

Also for those who were concerned, OUR FLAMINGO FLOATIE WAS FOUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s a pretty hilarious ending to an equally hilarious story.

    Glad you’re back on-the-web, safe, sound, and re-invigorated. You know how old relatives begin to worry when they don’t hear anything for a while!
