long time no talk! i feel like i haven’t posted in forever, but it really hasn’t been that long. two months, maybe.
but let’s face it, life got on top of me. the beginning of the year has been chaotic with life changes, and even though its been quite the ride, they’re what was needed.
“making a big life change is pretty scary. but you know what is even scarier? regret.”
but hey! i’m back! i have things to say. posts to post.
so let’s get to what this post is about…pull up a chair and grab whatever you’re drinking; i’ve got some more to share with you.
if we were having coffee, i’d tell you all about how my youngest just turned 7, and i still can’t believe it. there are days where she’s more sour than sweet, but i wouldn’t change a thing. she’s becoming into her own personality a lot lately and i’m really love her free spirit. she’s got such a good heart, is creative, and makes me laugh till i cry often. it’s hard for me to accept that my baby girl isn’t really my baby anymore, but i can’t wait to watch her grow up and become the best version of herself.
if we were having coffee, i’d want to tell you about something that i did that i’ve always been hesitant to, but just took the leap. and i can’t say this enough…i’m so glad that i did. i booked myself a boudoir photo shoot with Leigh Photography (Rockford, IL).
i’ve had so many people express their opinions about my choice to do so; some were extremely supportive, and some…not so much. but, if other people’s opinions affected half of the things i chose to do, i would have missed out on so many amazing opportunities and adventures.
Alyssa, owner and photographer of Leigh Photography, said it best…
“Life is short, do the photo shoot. If I had one piece of advice to my potential Boudoir babes, that would be it! I don’t care what age, size, color, height, bra size, or nationality you are. Boudoir is for everyone. Everyone deserves a little ‘feel good’ action! Do the photo shoot!”
if we were having coffee, i’d share with you all about my recent visit to the Wndr Museum in Chicago. never heard of the wndr museum and curious what it is? it’s the newest experiental museum in the city; a place where art meets science. for all social media users, it’s full of perfect photo ops, including 19 art installations.
my friend and i took the train in and met our friend from wisconsin at the train station. we made a night out of it by grabbing dinner at one of chicago’s staples, lou malnatis pizzeria, had a few drinks, and then ventured to the museum. if you haven’t checked it out already, i’d highly recommend taking a trip to wndr.
if we were having coffee, i’d rave all about how my girl’s rocked their basketball season this year. and honestly, i’m sad that it’s over. both of my girls played this year, and i LOVED being their biggest fan on the sidelines cheering them on every saturday morning. they both said they’re playing again next year, but until then, i’ll be their cheerleader through soccer season.
if we were having coffee, i’d chat all about how lucky i feel to have the support system that i do. days have certainly been wild lately, and some have been extremely hard. but i truly believe that those who really matter, have been there for me through it all and helped kept my head above water. i’d much rather be with them through any storm, then warm and safe all alone. only surround yourself with people who lift you higher.
