Hello again. It's been (quite) a while.
The thing is, the second half of 2015 was really tough on me and I didn't want to share anything publically, even my thoughts. Then 2016 was better. But better, in this case, also means incredibly busy.
Pretty much my whole life changed in 2016. And it changed quickly.
I started a new job in March. I stood by my best friend as she married her best friend in April. And in June, I told someone I would become his wife.
[I've got the best partner - literally, I don't even like to talk about him too much because I feel like I'm bragging - and on June 3, 2016 he asked me to marry him and I was very delighted to say yes]
In November I turned 30 and on my birthday we signed the papers to our first home.
We moved in before Christmas.
Of course more things happened to me in 2016: I travelled to places I had never been before (what up Arizona, Jamacia and B.C.), I celebrated friends' weddings and engagements, I spent incredibly valuable time with my family, I laughed, I cried, I slept.
And while the world may have hated 2016, in my little life it was A-OK. (And I'm incredibly grateful for that, because 2015 was a real challenge.)
So the above quote really rings true for me, and I've always resontaed with it. Sometimes nothing happens in your life and you get incredibly frustrated wishing for change. I've been there.
And then sometimes everything happens all at once. You turn 30 and buy a house. You move and you close one chapter of your life before opening the next.
Whichever phase you're in at the moment, I wish you peace and grace. Hang in there, you never know what can happen in a year. xo
