About a Year Ago + Weekend Links

Est. 12-16-2011

Ever have one of those random (weekday) nights where you stay up way too late as a result of brain activity overload? I just couldn't stop teaching myself how to create a new blog header (her tutorial was super easy) and happily ended up with two not-too-shabby creations I'm quite proud of. Meanwhile, my boyfriend is in bed - - alone - - probably wondering why I'm so Obsessed with blogging + graphic arts and not cuddling up with him while it's pouring rain outside.

What he doesn't know is how much reflecting I've been doing while staying up in the wee hours, pinning pretty pictures + finding inspiration to create + browsing my fave blogs + sipping on hot tea + simply in awe..

In awe of how much 1 year of blessings can do to a person. 

That picture above? Taken almost exactly a year ago; it was the very first time we said I love you to one another and one of the most emotional times I've ever experienced. Why? Two weeks after that photo was taken, I boarded the plane from Phoenix, Az to Paris, France - - one way - - to travel the world. I still can't believe that I created this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for myself as well as found the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. Like I said, I'm still in awe.

Fast forward to this current moment; we're still madly in love, so proud of our family of three, grateful that I have traveled to 11 countries within 5 months, have given up smoking cigarettes for good, and almost done with the first month of the Insanity workout. It just feels so good to reflect these days.

Oh, and to top that all off. I have the day off from work. Wish I can tell you what I'm going to be doing but it's a surprise. More on that later. If you have made it this far in my post, thank you so much for letting me engage you. I'll quit rambling now and onto some fun links:


Um, really? Why not just do a bunch of squats and lunges instead?

The lady who is a male model. Crazy!

I want this classy number.

This is so my type of skirt!

Why can't this actually be healthy for you? Darn.

Have you checked out this positive blog yet?


  1. HAHA those bum enhancing undies! Hilarious!

    And how GORGEOUS are you in that photo of you and your boo?? Beautiful together, you two! Glad you have had such an amazing year, and glad that us meeting was apart of it!

    xx, Ev
