Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve been on here to do a blog post! Life has been insane and every time I’ve thought to post something, it doesn’t happen. A lot has happened since my last post: birthday, getting back on track with healthy living, vacation to San Francisco, visit from my best friend from college, etc.

Aside from work, a lot of my time has been spent trying to get back on a healthy track with life. Long story shortened, I went to the doctor and got a reality check (diabetes runs in my family and some numbers were alarmingly high, though not enough to classify me with the diagnosis, thankfully). Hopefully doing a separate post about this in the near future!

One of my favorite things to do when I have time (haha) is to sew. A friend recently had a gorgeous baby girl and I made some handmade gifts for her. I just LOVE how they turned out!

I knew her nursery colors were koral, teal and sunshine yellow. I decided to add orange and grey to the mix.

I embroidered her name on each of the burp clothes and made a coordinating summer dress … although I know she won’t fit it for another year or two. I love making gifts for people when I can, rather than buying them from a store. There’s just something so meaningful and personal about it!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. Yes, I’m still around, but I’ve been so busy with work, church and life that I haven’t had much new info to share.

A quick snapshot of my life right now:

  • Trying to get back to a good eating and workout routine
  • Planning lots of vacation! So far, I have plans for a trip San Francisco; a friend coming to visit me from Wisconsin; a trip to¬†Massachusetts; trip to Portland; trip to Greenville. Phew!
  • Working. A lot.

In addition to that, I’m in this Eeyore-like phase of life right now, and I’m not sure what to do to kick it. Just spending a lot of time evaluating where I am in life and where I want to be in life; thinking about the friends I have and how I spend time (or don’t) with them; etc. Yep, it’s super exciting. And yes, that was sarcasm.

What have you been up to?

Hopefully this weekend, I’ll have a fun post about some crafty things I’ve been making. (Keyword: hopefully.)
