hello.

So the past few months I’ve been HORRIBLE about blogging. Like absolutely horrible. There’s this thing called life and I let stuff that really isn’t super relevant keep me from doing what I love… which is writing and sharing and just being me.

Blogging has always been a way for me to share experiences. I’ve been doing it for over 15 years. I look back at my old blogs and chuckle at all the things I shared. From love to loss to cooking and everything in between. Somewhere along the way I lost my excitement for sharing my words.

While at a vision board party this past Sunday I was working on my themes and actions for 2016. I kept seeing the word blog, blogger, blogging, etc in different magazines. Then my niece said you need to cut this out and put it on your board, you are a blogger. I said eh I’m not really, but then I thought yeah I guess I am one. I’ve just been slacking on my platform.

I mean I really had planned on writing it just never happened. I had ideas and words written in my inbox, I even saved pictures in dropbox folders so I could easily create posts, and guess what? They are still in those folders.

I was stuck.

Now I am not.

So I’m going to do a few things. One is I’m going to blog. Second those folders will become posts. I’m actually writing and scheduling them out now.  One set of posts I’m going to backdate because the way my brain functions it will drive me crazy if I don’t. Those posts are called “It’s Monday” and you can find them under the tag “It’s Monday.” These are posts I do every Monday on my personal facebook account. They are just a reflection of what’s going on in my head and my life for the past seven days.

Also, I’m going to do a “Rewind” series which will cover all the trips that happened over the past 5 months or so. Part of the reason I was MIA in writing was also me being on a work assignment in Arizona for about 4.5 months. While there I had several adventures not only in Arizona but California, Vegas, and across the world in Abu Dhabi and Dubai and a weekend jaunt to Puerto Rico.

So that covers the past in the midst of that I’ll just write about the present and the future. When I first started this blog I wanted to just focus on travel but I realized that’s just a small facet of my life. So yes that will be a big component, but there will also be thoughts, cooking adventures, books, lifestyle stuff, concerts, and more (not sure what else more covers lol).

So I think I’m DONE explaining and writing. This is the longest post I will probably write in a while. There is more goodness to come and if you are a subscriber I apologize because you will get several alerts for the backdated “It’s Monday” posts that are going up. If you aren’t a subscriber, subscribe.

Love you all!
