Once again, it has been a while...my bad! I truly don't know what it is. I have completely lost my blogging grove. I think it has a lot to do with how burnt out I got in teaching/life by the end of last year and even though all of that seems like a million years behind me....and I am in such a healthier and happier place- I still think I'm really struggling to find myself again. And frankly, figure out what I'm doing with my life.
HAH. Don't get me wrong, I am NOT COMPLAINING at all. I LOVE this very sweet spot in time I have found myself in, right now. But I kinda feel more 'lost' than ever- yet perfectly at peace with the 'not really knowing whats going on/whats next'. Teaching was such a solid career. I had a very set schedule and a pretty laid out path to retirement. However, I quite literally burnt that bridge walking away from a contract in the middle of the school year and now I feel like a grocery bag floating in the air. More so now, than I ever did after college or highschool.
I have a new job (in marketing) that I am enjoying and provides me with A LOT more down time, so I have had A LOT more time to do all the things I love to do. Like lots of art making and traveling!
2016 has been a reallllly crazy year and an oh so very busy one! I hope to get back in my grove and do more blog post moving forward, but I feel like its been so long and SO much has happened since the last post that I need to do this post to quickly catch you up!
So below you will find some of my favorite pics from the last couple months, as well as being caught up on what I have been doing all this time, enjoy!
I got into painting my abstract paintings, prints + patterns onto leather, as at my new job we make leather journals/sketchbooks/books and it has opened up a whole new world for me! I have been painting on my purses, shoes, etc. for years- but now I have taught myself how to make my own and I am LOVING IT! I'll do a post on all my leather making soon enough :)
I will for sure be doing a blog post or two about that trip- pretty much breaking down each day for you. Chris and I will definitely be returning to Iceland as on our trip....
We are soo soo happy about our engagement and I feel like the luckiest gal in the world, to have a man that loves me so much and constantly does all that he can to show me and make me feel loved + valued!
We aren't in a super huge rush to start planing, but I'm sure I will be posting about all the wedding stuff here too!
Whew! It was a jammed packed + super fun couple of months! I hope you enjoyed catching up, be back soon!
