Hey there friends! I'm sorry I've been gone for a while...but it seems the holidays and preparing for a huge move across the country has totally consumed me lately (I didn't even get to finish my December Daily album again this year...uuuggghhh!) I'm also a little disappointed that I didn't have a chance to post my last Weekend in Review for 2011. But sometimes you just have to do what you have to do, and let life take it's course. Anyway, I hope you all had a chance to enjoy the holidays with family and friends. And if you don't celebrate the holidays, then I still hope you've had the chance to spend time with loved ones and just enjoy life.
As I said before, I've been preparing for a big move, which is actually taking place tomorrow. It was a little over a month ago when I made the decision to pack up and move to sunny San Diego by the end of this year! A great opportunity presented itself to me, which I just couldn't pass up (not to mention that I've always wanted to try living on the west coast). Although, I can't believe this is happening, I think it's definitely going to be a turning point in my life and what better time than NOW- on the heels of the new year!
I know I don't usually get too personal here, but the second part of this year has been very difficult for me. From being laid off over the summer, to going through a separation with my husband and having to move back home with my family in September. It's been a whirlwind of craziness- a complete roller coaster ride, but I definitely know now for sure, that everything happens for a reason and regardless of what happens, in the end I will be OK. The hardships I've dealt with for the past 6 months have taught me many valuable lessons, that I would not have learned otherwise. I can now say that I'm a better, much stronger person thanks to these challenges and have the ability to pick myself up, dust myself off and start all over again...
I'm excited for the new possibilities that 2012 will bring and looking forward to a much brighter and more successful future. I don't know where this new path will lead, but I'm absolutely ready for the journey. So with that said, I will be taking a break from blogging for a little while, until I'm more settled in California and my new surroundings. I can't really say how long I'll be away, but I'm definitely looking forward to getting back to this blog just as soon as I can- hopefully with a lot of fun and interesting things to share! So until then- stay well my friends and enjoy all that life has to offer, one day at a time! Happy New Year to you all! Sending best wishes of much happiness, good health and love in 2012! *smile* xo
