Hey readers! :)
Happy Friday!
It is officially a new year, 2019!
So sorry that I haven't posted in a couple weeks and this is the first time this year posting. Last time you heard from me, I was saying goodbye to 2018.
I decided to take a couple weeks off of blogging so that I could start back into the school year and stay focused on some things before returning to posting.
I can't say that I will be posting as much as I did in December but I'm going to try. It is so much easier to get posts up when I am on break.
I would love to hear about how your year is going so far, so let me know in the comments!
Alright, for my year so far it has been a lot. And I'm not going to go into detail about some things because they are pretty personal.
But I started up school again and my basketball season started up again.
If you didn't know, I play 3 different sports, soccer, volleyball, and basketball.
But right now it is basketball season.
Overall 2019 has been going good so far. Of co…

A Year at a Glance

Hey readers!
As you know, there are only a few days left of 2018...
Maybe you are writing out your resolutions for the new year, or maybe you're gonna wing it and hope for the best, or maybe you're scared of a new chapter might be starting in your book.
Wherever you are at with that, maybe you've got it right or wrong. I'm not so sure anymore. I always used to put everything in life into little boxes and try to keep my life as controlled and organized as possible. But now, as I get older, I am starting to see everything a bit differently than before. Why does everything have to be perfectly controlled by me? If something doesn't go how I think it will or something is different, should I really have a mental break down because I can't fix it?
In this past year, I have grown up a bit. I've gone through some tough stuff.
I have learned who I can trust and who is not a true friend. I have learned to accept the circumstances which I can not change. I have somewhat …

Winter Vacation

Image
Hey readers!
If you've been reading my posts for a while then you'll know that I have mentioned that I was going out of the city to a beach house with my family.
I just got back from that vacation and I thought I would write about it for you guys so that you can kind of come along with me and my experiences.
We left on Monday morning, packed up the car and drove.
When we got there we each picked out our rooms in the house and went straight to the pool to relax.
We also brought my dog, Daisy, with us.
Every night I would run down to the ocean and see the sun set.
It was amazing to see all the beautiful pastel colors shine through the sky and reflect off the calm sea.
One morning, I woke up at 6 am, put on some pants and sweatshirt, then ran up to the roof of my beach house to lay down and look at the stars.
I saw beautiful bright stars and the moon was as bright as ever.
At about 6:30, I ran back inside and slide back into my warm bed and fell asleep. You may be thinking, 6:30 is not…

5 Activities To Do In Winter

Image
Hey readers!
As you know from my last post, it is becoming the winter season!
And of course I completely forgot to write a post like this for the fall season but here is one for winter!!
Most of you are probably about to finish school and work for vacation in a couple weeks or days, and you are going to have a lot of free time on your hands.
And sometimes we don't know what to do with that time and we get a little bored.
So, I'm here today to kind of act as your guide for all things winter and give you some ideas of what you can do.
All of these are things I have 100% done before, because why would I recommend something when I haven't tested it to make sure that it is good for you guys.
If you would like to add to my list, if I've missed some major time spenders, then let me know some more of your ideas in the comment section below.
Alright, let's get right into it! :)

1. Ice Skating! I have been ice skating a couple times during the winter season, and if you haven'…

Winter Wonderland

Happy December!
I can't believe we are in the very last month of the year.
Its always an exciting time for everyone with the holidays, winter break, and spending time with family.
In winter it also gets very cold. Some people love it, and some don't.
Personally if its cold out, you will find me wrapped in a blanket with hot coffee and reading a good book.
And SNOW, ah the magical time of the year with snowflakes drifting down to the earth, resting on your eyelashes and melting on your tongue.
It's almost unbelievable when you look out your window after a snow shower and to see the beauty of the snow on the tall evergreen trees and the cozy homes with smoke coming out of the chimney. It looks like the scene is covered in a white fluffy blanket being tucked away until spring.
Many of you who see snow every year might not see it as a big deal, but for me, it is one of the most beautiful things you can see. I haven't seen snow in almost five years because I am always moving …

Autumn Air

Hey you guys! It's Autumn! I'm so excited. And yes I know I'm a little late to the fall obsessed trend. You all are probably all ready for winter already!  Also when I think of fall I think of soccer season. :) And as you know I'm soccer-obsessed, because it is basically my favorite sport. Another thing that excites me about fall/autumn is the cooler air. Where I live, a warm climate, our "fall"  is not freezing weather. But it does get a little chilly.  Oh and candles! I love lighting candles and playing my favorite music on my phone. Also, one thing I've been doing recently is listening to podcasts.  Podcasts help me calm down and let my mind think while I might be doing other things like washing dishes or doing some needed chores around my home. My favorite podcast right now is "Pretty Basic" by Alisha Marie and Remi Cruz. I would highly recommend listening to their podcasts. You can listen to podcasts on Itunes, Apple Podcasts, and even Spotify. I …

Summer Vacation

Image
Hey! So this summer has been really amazing for me. I love the beach, the hot summer air, the friends and family time, the cookouts, exploring, going on vacation somewhere special, and the list goes on. So Summer is basically my favorite season of the year. And in a couple weeks, I will have to go back to school and Summer will be over for me. And if I'm being honest, I am not looking forward to starting school again. I wish Summer could last forever but it can't and life goes on, so I guess I just have to accept it. 
Sorry got kind of caught up in a rant there, anyways, this post is going to be some pictures of my summer vacation. So let's just get into it :)






I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know what you think, by leaving me a comment below. Have a great rest of your summer break!  Thanks for reading! :) -BloggerGirl
