I'm Baaaaccckkk!!

Wednesday, June 20, 2012
So remember that one time I promised I would be back in a few months? Well those few months turned into more like 6ish months. But hey, I'm back!

For those of you who don't follow me on facebook or Instagram here is what I have been doing with the last six months of my life...

A LOT of this...

Moved to this house in Utah County..

I FINALLY graduated...

Nannying these cute kids...

Still have a great family and still have great friends...

And, I STILL love fashion. go figure...


Now for the deep life lesson stuff that I need to get out of the way. After this, no more serious stuff guys. I'll keep it cool. My divorce and my life the last six months, has given me the opportunity to learn A LOT. I have learned a lot through the divorce itself, my ex, and myself. Here it goes...

When facing a hard life changing trial we have a few choices. We can give up and seek for instant gratification or we can stay positive and get through life one day at a time until that trial has passed. The instant gratification doesn't last long until the emptiness has to be filled with more meaningless things. By choosing to be positive and choosing the right path for myself I have grown so much stronger and it has opened my eyes to what I need and DESERVE in my future.

We learn and grow and become stronger during these trials, especially if dealt with the right way. Unfortunately I have learned that we only have control over ourselves and most importantly, our attitude. As much as we wish we could make someone else do "good" or choose the right path, we can't.

I have had a trying and testing time the last six months as most of you know. I am so excited to say that I am back and ready to blog again. My life is in order, I have finally graduated (yipee) and I have never been this happy and grateful for the turn of events that have taken place in my life. I put my trust in the Lord and I knew he wouldn't give me more than I could handle. He just wanted to test me a little and ultimately prepare me for someone better in my future :). I am so beyond stoked for what life has in store for me.

I am excited to share more fashion with all of you and I am sure I will have even more fun stories now that I am living the single life. I hope all of my amazing followers before will join me once again. I love and appreciate all of you. Now let's get our fashion on!!
