I cannot believe I have been MIA for over a month. Today is already my birthday! I know we all say this but really where does THE time go?! It is absolutely crazy how fast life flies by, I especially have recognized this more and more as I have gotten older.
I won’t lie 27 flewww it REALLY FLEW! I mean I was in South Carolina last year at this time with my whole family and it seems as if we were all still there! I really enjoyed 27. I learned a lot about myself and EVEN more about how to be a better bonus mama to Sofia. I became even more aware of who I am as a person, such as what I excel in and even what I can begin to work on more.I have lived in Boston for FOUR years this January! One of the best decisions I have made in my life was leaving my small hometown in Connecticut to come here and begin a new chapter of life. I continue to grow so much as a person, and with each passing year I learn more and more. I think it is so important to step out of your comfort zone and scare yourself in life. If you don’t scare yourself in my opinion then your dreams aren’t big enough.
Reflecting back on this year has me really feeling so grateful! This year I began blogging more and opening up our our home to you all! Also, I changed the entire look and feel to my Instagram account. BEST decision I EVER made. Not only did I change the look and feel of my instagram, BUT i happily discovered even more so of what a handy future HUB I have. I mean you guys he made us a farm table, a fence, and now he is on to a potting table. Who would have thought how amazing of a carpenter he is. #solucky.
That brings me to my next thought. I truly think following your gut, and listening to your intuition about things that mean the most to you is so important. I have always been a positive, happy person and being able to be on apart of a platform that can continually pass this along to all of you is so amazing:) SO THANK YOU, THANK YOU ALL for the messages, LOVE, support, and humor it truly means more than you will ever know. Remember, you get back what you give. I promise!
Another few highlights in my personal life that I am proud of is MY COOKING improvements. I know some of you are probably laughing, BUT I have made some great milestones in the kitchen. Baby steps, BUT I can happily say I can cook five different meals for my family without burning the house down. YAYY!!!
THE gym always has been and always will be my instant stress reliever, and thank GOD I finally found a great trainer to help me along the way. I have never felt so in shape in my life. PROTEIN + STAIRMASTER I tell ya…my new BFFS. YOU CAN DO IT!
I am so excited to begin 28, I mean you I AM GETTING MARRIED! I know I am only 28, but I feel like an old soul deep within, and I am finally accepting that. Nothing wrong with the fact that I can’t take shots, or mix drinks anymore:) I am so excited to see what Sofia continues to do academically, and personally. She is my number one and I couldn’t be more proud to be her bonus Mom.
LOVE YOU ALL! Thank you for letting me be me all the time.
Can’t wait to continue this adventure with you all–xx
