It has been a whirlwind of the past few weeks. The last post I was able to publish on here was all about Andy’s birthday. I am still reliving that day as it was pretty awesome (you can relive it with me, here). The past few weeks I was busy preparing to have my family in town and take a few days off of work in preparation for my brother’s wedding on October 14th, then Andy’s brother wedding on November 6th. After all the time with family, I decided it is about time to count my blessings and write about all I have been thankful for this fall!
Everything to Be Thankful For
My brother’s wedding was in Spring Green, Wisconson. First off, we had no cell reception all weekend, which was really a blessing in disguise. Sometimes you just need to chill out on the technology for a couple of days. The wedding was at a place called The House on the Rock, which is this crazy attraction. You can read up all about it, here.
Work has also been crazy this month. I normally don’t talk too much about it, because it is just a separate part of my life. But, I will say that I am getting a lot on my plate, which I truly believe will be a good thing in the long-run. Hence why I just have not had any time at all to write.
I am working on a couple of separate side-projects. I am pretty much in the brainstorming phase of these right now, but I will keep you updated as these projects launch, hopefully within the next six months. What I will tell you is that this comes after a very transformative year, personally. Not a lot of people talk about it, but the twenties are a $hitty time in your life, but also a great time to grow and experience different stuff. Sometimes for the good, and sometimes not so good. I have been through some stuff and all I can say is THANK YOU to the friends and family who read this blog, follow me on social media, engage, and continue to believe in me IRL. The new friends, the old friends, etc. My best friend is not into blogs, barely goes on Facebook, and does not even have an Instagram, and is STILL continually supportive of everything I have been doing. I even had an old friend say she would get onto my blog just to see my writing, even though she does not have any social media accounts. Point is, you do not have to be on social media to be supportive, emotionally, and a great friend. These ladies do some great stuff outside of it, and I am proud in return.
In addition to my brother’s wedding, Andy’s brother also got married. His wedding was a destination wedding in St. Pete’s, Florida. There is nothing like going to a wedding and also having it as a vacation. It was my first destination wedding, and it was truly a joy to vacation with new friends and Andy’s family. I am thankful for this experience, especially being so close to the holidays. We have not been able to travel to Ohio as much as we wanted to, so this certainly was a treat.
Now that the weddings are over, and the holidays are in full gear (so I suspect from all the commercials I see), I hope to hunker down and bring more blog posts to this blog.
Lastly, I am thankful for all my loyal blog readers like YOU!
