Blog News

Hello my friends! I know I’ve been MIA and missed the last few scheduled posts, so I just wanted to hop on and give you an update on me and the blog and my plans for the rest of the year.

At the beginning of this year I had high hopes and lofty ambitions for what I wanted the blog to be. Two posts per week, every week, all year. And I did so well for so long. Of course, at the beginning of the year, I had NO IDEA how quickly my life would be flipped upside down when just a couple short months later my dad was diagnosed with oral cancer.

Life Lately // An Update on Dad

Hello friends. I’m interrupting my previously scheduled House Tour Update post that was to coincide with my Saturday “Make A Statement” series to check in today about my life lately. The truth is I’m completely exhausted; I just got over some kind of weird sinus thing (I had fevers night and day, was it an infection??); and my dad just got released from a short stay in the hospital, and for all of those reasons I didn’t have a chance to complete the Dining Room update I was originally going to share today.

What would I do if I had 12 hobbies going all at once? lol… I’d have no time to go to work and definitely no time to write this blog. Yet here I am, so I think it’s an overall success!

Shall we check in?

A 40 x 40 Check In + My Reverse Bucket List

Hello my lovelies! Yesterday was my half birthday (yes, I still commemorate those, to a certain extent lol) so now that we’re six months in, I thought it would be the perfect time to check in on my 40 x 40 list progress that I posted on my birthday (if you missed it, you can read it HERE). And while I’m at it, I thought it might be fun to do a reverse bucket list as well. To acknowledge all of the things I’ve accomplished and experienced over the past 35.5 years.
