Good morning, loves! I figured it was time for some life updates. First I’ll update you on what I’ve been wearing… but read on to the end of the post to learn about my love life & my big move!
First, I am super in love with this PJ set I found at Forever 21 the other day. I have gotten to the point where I need coffee every morning to wake up… so these pajamas are right on point. And they are comfy, too!
This weekend I helped Kohls announce their new campaign on Instagram, Find Your Yes! It’s all about finding your “yes” moment, whether that’s finding this Lauren Conrad mint top in stores (ahem) or simply finding $20 in the pocket of your jeans. But I really am obsessed with this top!
GiGi New York has just come out with the cutest little pocket notebooks you’ve ever seen. I adore how they come with your initials printed on them! I keep this little notebook tucked in my bag so I can cross off my to-do list on-the-go.
So, as you can see from the picture above, my boyfriend (Chris) and I are back together. We took a break for about three months after a tragedy in his family. I’m not lying when I say that those three months were some of the hardest in my life! Going through a break-up is never, ever easy… but our circumstances made it even harder. Chris needed time to grieve over a loss in his family, while I thought my world had ended because I had lost “the One” – the boy that I believed I would spend the rest of my life with. I had to rely on God so much to get me through every single day. It was during this time that I realized I couldn’t depend on others, especially a boyfriend, to make me happy. It was also during this time that I decided to leave Greenville, SC, and move to Charlotte, NC. There were a lot of factors in my decision to move, but mainly I wasn’t happy in Greenville anymore, I wanted to be closer to my family, I wanted a new adventure and I wanted to rely on God fully… so I moved!
I honestly couldn’t be happier that I did. I have loved discovering Charlotte as a city and meeting so many new friends (and bloggers!). Eventually, Chris and I started talking again (in February) and decided that we both didn’t want to live without each other. As happy as I am now, I am also so thankful for our time apart. Even though it was hard (and there were days I didn’t feel like getting out of bed), I learned so much about myself during that time because I was held accountable for my own happiness.
Not to end on a depressing note, but if any of you girls are going through a break-up (or just a hard time in general) please feel free to email me! I have been in your shoes and can tell you a little bit more about my experience. Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
