Hello lovelies, I know it's been a while. Sometimes you just find yourself needing to take a step back to clear your head so you can focus on what really matters. It's amazing what some time away will do to gain a little perspective on things.
In this challenge, Lara asks you to identify what one word resonates with you for this year? It's so hard to pick just one. These are the words that come to mind:
Lara is a real inspiration to me and so many other women out there. She reminds me every day how important it is to focus on what matters. For one, I focused on my home life. What does that mean besides getting an early start on spring cleaning? My marriage, for one (woah, did I just write 'my marriage'? When did I become a grown up?). In the back of my mind I knew I wasn't always giving it the full attention and care it deserved; does that ever happen to you? So I made a conscious effort to spend a lot less time on my phone when we were together and just enjoyed being in the moment. Doing more of the little things for eachother that really mean so much. Date nights are back.
During this time I also took this challenge, a 21-day detox consisting of very green and very tasty recipes (thanks Martha!). I lost about seven pounds and have more energy than I have in a long time. This was such a positive experience and one that has really changed my eating habits, for good. That's not to say I won't give in to those chocolate cravings every now and then though.
I've also been working hard on the Blushing and Sweet makeover and am so excited to start making some changes! I'm looking into designers to give her a pretty new look, so if you have any suggestions I would love to hear about them below.
It feels good to be back.
