Life Lately

Hi loves! It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and chatted with y’all. I have lots to share! Grab your favorite drink, get cozy and let’s dive into life lately to catch you up!

I haven’t blogged in over a month. With life going full speed I took a much-needed break. It’s been really nice to just sit back and enjoy life. I haven’t really been inspired to write which is why the break was much longer than expected. Though I have a ton of blog posts that I want to write, I will never be one of those bloggers that will write something just to get a post out. I’ve also considered no longer blogging. I’ve been asking myself if what I have to say/share really matters because there are so many bloggers out there (granted there is room for all of us). I started this blog back in 2015 because I loved reading blogs myself. I blog because it’s something I enjoy doing in my free time. I’ve had big dreams for my blog but with life and a full-time job, it’s not always easy. I have been trying to share more of myself and my life on Insta Stories which isn’t something that I love because I hate being on camera. But I’m trying to connect with those followers who care about what happens. In a way, I know that it’s needed to grow but a part of me feels like who wants to know about my life. Anyway…if I continue to blog I really hope that all the posts I’ve been wanting to write will slowly but surely be written.

I celebrated my 33rd birthday last month (May 25th). For the past few years, we’ve been doing a huge crawfish boil with our neighbors (they also have a family member who’s bday is on the 25th). This year was probably the largest amount of people we’ve had attend. We boiled crawfish, shrimp, fried catch, etc. I had such an amazing time spending it with my friends and family. It made turning thirty-three that much better!

My best friend and I went to see Jessie James Decker in concert and Y’ALL…her voice in person is AMAZING! She has some serious pipes! I have a serious girl crush and would love to hang out with her. She just seems like one of those girls who would be a blast to hang out with.

This weekend I am looking forward to celebrating one of my best friends birthdays. We are going to be spending some time by the pool that has an amazing lazy river! A little girl time is always needed! I’ll share some snippets from the weekend on Insta.

I hope you all enjoyed spending a little time catching up with me! I’d love to know how things have been going for you. Let me know in the comments below.

    It’s great that you’ve been spending more time doing what YOU want to do, and not what you feel like you HAVE to do. I’ve also taken a step back from blogging this month due to some health problems and the realisation that I was too focused on quantity, NOT quality, when it should be the other way around. Now, I am going to take my time with each post to ensure that it is exactly how I want it to be before I share it with the world.

      Indya it’s so important to step back at times and do things that you enjoy. We all get caught up in every day life, so doing what we want to do is a good thing. That’s awesome that you are taking some time to really focus on blog posts that you want to get out.

      Thank You Beth! The break was much needed for sure! Of course I’m still slowing getting back into things but that’s okay. My birthday was a lot of fun!

  3. It looks like you’ve been having a lot of fun! Sometimes we need to take that time to stop working all the time and just enjoy what life brings. 🙂

    I’m definitely curious about how you’re feeling being 33! I only ask because I am, too. Although I’m not quite sure how I’m feeling about it. Haha. Love a good concert!

      I am still feeling that same currently when it comes to being 33. Of course that could change in time. Lol. Yes a good concert is always nice!
