Hey Y’all!! I’m so glad you are here with me today. Things have been quite around here lately, I figured it was time for some catching up. So grab your favorite drink and let’s get to chatting.
+I have been slightly disorganized lately. Life was so crazy for me in October & November, with both of my grandparents going into the hospital and then my grandfather passing away. I honestly have not had time to catch my breath especially with the holidays happening right in the midst of my family emergencies. I hate being disorganized but I’ve been exhausted physically, mentally and emotionally. All I want to do is sleep lately which is probably what I need. With everything that has happened STH has suffered like crazy but life happens and there will always be blogging. I seriously hope I get myself back on track before next year.
+I have not been feeling like myself lately. There have been so many things running through my mind about life in general and if I am making the right choices, etc. A lot of this has to do with everything that recently happened and conversations I’ve had. I’m sure that being disorganized has not helped either. It’s like I am just not feeling it lately in all aspects of my life. Hopefully some good rest of the holidays will help me clear my mind.
+I have been contemplating about changing the look of Sweet Tea & Hydrangeas. I am a little bored with my blog layout and thought about changing my blog name. Not sure what exactly I want to do yet. I think I want to stay around the same color scheme though. However, if you know any great places for WordPress.org themes,etc let me know!
+I am almost done with Christmas shopping. Thankfully I only have to get two gift cards and I am done. Next year I will be more on top of my game when it comes to shipping (hopefully).
+I had so much holiday content planned this year but I did not publish one single post. I’m disappointed in myself for that but I know a break was needed. I want to start 2018 off with lots of energy and kick butt with my blog.
+My grandfathers passing made a month last Saturday and I went to visit his grave two weeks ago. It took a lot out of me to be able to go visit but I am so thankful that I did. I broke down while sitting on his grave but I knew he was sitting there beside me telling me he was okay. At one point the wind started blowing like crazy out of know where, so I knew that was his way of comforting me.
+This past weekend I got to spend time with one of my best friends for over 11 years and it was so much fun. It felt so nice to be able to laugh and dance like fools. Sometimes a girl just needs a little bit of dancing to brighten her mood.
+I plan on getting my Blogging Bliss Series up and running again starting the beginning of next year. If you would like to be featured please let me know in the comments below. Read the previous posts here and here that I shared for the series.
+I’ve slowly gotten back into wedding planning mode and I am proud to say I have a huge chunk of items checked off my list. I want to share my wedding planning experience as well on the blog. Would y’all like to see that type of content for next year?
I hope you all enjoyed catching up with me and my life lately. What has been going on in your life? What are your plans for Christmas?
I’d love to know in the comments below.
