Where Have I Been? | Life Update

Hello friends, it’s been awhile. I can’t believe I’ve been away from this community for two years. I’m going to treat this post as if I’m catching up with an old friend. I picture us sipping coffee and softy smiling, as we mutually acknowledge how beautiful life can be. I can’t begin to express the amount of joy that I’ve experienced since my last post. First major life event; I’M MARRIED! Crazy, right? It was definitely all part of God’s unique plan for me, but I met my husband Jonathan in November of 2017 and we began dating shortly after that. In 2018, on the 4th of July, he proposed to me. On November 17th, 2018, we were married. For some, that may seem like a pretty quick turnaround time. For us, we couldn’t wait another day to be husband and wife. He is the most gentle, funny, kind-hearted man that I’ve ever known. He gives me grace when I don’t deserve it and he protects my heart above all. Jonathan keeps Jesus at the center of our marriage and prays with me often. Before I met him, I was aimlessly searching for meaning in my life. I had serious doubts that I would ever find true love and was so nervous at the idea of settling for someone that I didn’t really want to be with. It’s sad, but I didn’t think a man like Jonathan would ever want to be with me. It’s so easy to devalue yourself, when others have treated you poorly in the past. Without a doubt, my husband is the best person I’ve ever known and he inspires me every day. I don’t know who I would be without him as my husband. He’s calmed my anxieties, strengthened my faith in Jesus, and loved me so honestly. He is a remarkable man. I couldn’t help but spend every moment loving him, which consequently took me away from keeping up with my blog.

I started this blog as a way to make friends and help heal the parts of me that were insecure and afraid. In the past, I’ve magnified my flaws and let a lot of my insecurities guide my decisions. I knew that if I really put myself out there, starting a blog could help me shed my overwhelming fear of rejection. It was scary knowing that if I write about makeup, skincare, hair, style, that there could be some people from my personal life judging me. I’m so grateful that I took a chance on myself and decided to go for it, but I’m disappointed that I’ve been away for so long. I was previously very diligent about posting once (or more) a week. I would look so forward to hitting “Publish” and then meeting up with my readers in the comment section to further discuss what I wrote. Although some time has passed, I hope that if you’re still a reader of mine, you will stick around for the rest of this journey of mine. I have missed you! I’ve missed writing. During this time away, I truly haven’t forgotten the feeling of connecting with you all through this amazing platform that I began in 2016.

With all of that said, I’m hoping to include a mix of all the fun, girly things that my blog was; while combining it with the new interests I’ve developed, such as home decor and recipes! I also hope to share a lot of my new life with Jonathan. He’s the most special person to me and I know you will all love him as well. Thank you for taking the time to read this life update and I will return next week on Sunday, October 6th at 8:00 PM EST. I love you all so much!
