I haven’t done a lot of blogging lately, and it’s due to how low my energy levels have been. Non-stop appointments and an intense diet are the main culprits.
It's now officially fall! Yesterday was the autumnal equinox, which marks the first official day of fall here in the northern hemisphere. One of my friends, CL, shared an interesting article on her Facebook about why fall is the only season that has two names (one thing I know I have personally wondered about many… Continue reading Happy Fall Ya’ll
For those of you not following my Instagram (which, why not?), I did get in to see the hand specialist on the 16th! It was much sooner than I expected to be able to see them.

I went in a week long vacation to visit one of my best friends. She was one of my bridesmaids and I’ve known her since I was a freshman in high school (she was a junior). We get to see each other very often, but since she just had second daughter two months ago (yup,…… Continue reading Home from Vacation
I’m a little preoccupied at the moment. I do apologize. Recently, I’ve decided I need to take a giant step in the direction of my mental health. The universe was sending me massive and glaring signs of which direction I needed to take. It’s kind of a rough one, and I’m just at the beginning.…… Continue reading My Mind Has Been Busy
