Why, hello there! It’s been a while since I blogged (two and a half weeks to be exact) and I want to apologize for my unintended absence from the blogosphere. Things have been pretty busy as of late, but then again, when are they not?
I started a new job several weeks ago, which is quite exciting, yet incredibly overwhelming all at the same time. I am no longer working retail (which is what I had been doing since finishing grad school), but instead am now balancing two jobs at two different nonprofits. Right now I am just overwhelmed and stressed, as well as am currently fighting off flu-like symptoms and hoping that I don’t succumb completely to debilitating illness. I would love nothing more than to trade places with Elvis and spend a day on the couch, wrapped up in a cozy blanket. But, alas, I must work.
In addition, Alex and I are finishing up a partial kitchen renovation, and are now planning on giving our one and a half baths a much needed renovation as well. This was decided after binge-watching Rehab Addict, which is currently streaming on Netflix and is now my all-time favorite home renovation reality show.
I also can’t believe that we are already more than half way through the month of October, which happens to be my favorite month of the year! I really hope that I will be able to squeeze in a haunted graveyard tour before the month is up, because honestly, what is October without a haunted graveyard tour?
Speaking of October, yesterday, October 21st, marked three years since I started this little blog! I should probably bake a cake or something.
I should also probably go through all of my photos from our trip to Los Angeles, which I still have not done. Honestly I am overwhelmed by the number of photos I took so I have been procrastinating going through them. And it seems like as time goes by, it becomes increasingly difficult to get myself to sit down and sort through them.
Although I haven’t yet posted any of the LA photos, and there are also a bunch of photos that were taken before the trip that I want to post as well (oops!), I did manage to pick a new layout for the blog. I really liked the previous layout; however, the photo dimensions were massive, so I didn’t like that you had to scroll down in order to see the entirety of a single image. I think this new layout will work nicely, and it reminds me of the first blog layout I had three years ago!
Anyhow, that’s what I’ve been up to. I will try not to be a neglectful blogger in the future, and hopefully will have a bunch of entries to share soon!
As always, thanks for reading!
