new year + new blog



hello hello! 

I know I've been absent for quite some time now, but, I have some valid excuses, #1 being the BIG move to the great state of TEXAS. All of December was dedicated to packing, driving to Houston after fighting a snow storm, unpacking and catching up with family! Then came 2014...just like that! And of course, if you can't already tell, I spent the beginning of 2014 giving my blog a makeover. I'm still new to all this "html" shebang but hopefully in the next couple weeks, I will have my blog looking just the way I want it to.

I know that at the beginning of a new year, people usually sit down and reflect back on the previous year and all I can say is that I am so blessed because last year was beyond amazing! Not only did hubs and I complete our first year of marriage, but we also got the opportunity to live in a great city that we enjoyed very much. We really enjoyed having the convenience of walking literally EVERYWHERE (gym, grocery store, museums, movie theater, malls etc). I'd be lying if I say that I don't miss Chicago especially because last year we experienced a "mild" winter (yeah right!), BUT this year the "real" Chicago weather is in full swing- I'm talking about lots of snow and the temperature highs being in the negatives. I know I sound crazy wanting to be in Chicago at this time of the year, but I think it would have been a great experience. The year we were there went by so fast and I can't believe that we are already back in Texas! While I have been enjoying the bipolar weather of Houston, one thing I know for sure is that I will forever cherish the memories we made in Chicago! 

Now that we are back in Houston, I am job searching and working on personal goals that I hope to accomplish this year. I don't have any new years "resolutions" per se other than read books often, keep up with my blog, do lots of DIY projects, increase my knowledge in religion, become a better person, and most importantly, be grateful and count my blessings every single day. 

Other than that, I hope you guys are having a great 2014 because I know I am ;)
