Life Updates – I’m Getting Hitched!

I know what you’re all thinking…”where in the heck has she been?”. Life has been a whirldwind lately! So much has been going on that I haven’t had much time for blogging, but I’m hoping that will change soon.

Rather than do what I normally do today and post a list or a themed post, I decided just to talk (I’m pretty good at that). About what, you ask? Well, life. What I’ve been up to; what’s coming up in the near and far-off future; and just spread some positive vibes.

If you follow me on Instagram (if not…do it!) you’ll have a bit of an idea of what’s been going on in my life. Things have been preeeeety crazy lately. My boyfriend and I finally moved into our house a few weeks ago. Let me tell you, that was a process. We ordered a brand new mini home back in September. After months of anxious waiting, visits to the bank, and landscaping of the yard, it finally arrived in January. Then, after a few weeks of work, we were able to move in. Long story short: we love it. It’s so gorgeous, so homey and we are so happy to be living together under the same roof. Wanna see it? Check out the pics below!

In January, I started a new job. Now, I didn’t leave my other job…I just do both. My first job is mostly seasonal, with part-time work from September to June. This new job is the opposite, so it worked out great. I’m pretty lucky, and proud, to have two jobs in my field in less than a year after graduating. I love this new job – it’s in my hometown, for a nonprofit organization, supports small and local business, and more or less allows me to work at my own pace and hours. Could it be any better? It’s ideal for me and where I’m at in life right now and I’m so incredibly happy about that. Boss babes, unite!

I saved the best for last….I’M GETTING MARRIED!! Saying it still seems weird. My wonderful boyfriend fiancé popped the question a month ago after a sleigh ride. It was sweet, heartfelt and everything I had ever imagined. I am so happy and excited to get to spend forever with my favourite person, who is also the most supportive, caring and kind soul I’ve ever met. We’ve started doing some planning – we have a date set and a photographer booked. We still have so much to do, and I can’t wait to share it all with my blog followers! IMG_8894

So what’s to come on the blog?

I’m planning on adding lots of great content to the blog, much of it stemming from the excitement currently in my life. Get ready for:

  • home & living features: decorating, tips on buying a house, household management and budgeting, and more
  • career & motivational features: advice for landing your dream job, tips on gaining workplace confidence, how to succeed, how to stand out, and more
  • wedding planning features: our proposal story, bridesmaid proposals, plans throughout the process, helpful tips…and probably a rant or two 😉

I am so excited to share all of this with you and to add some new, fun content to the blog. In the meantime, follow me on social (links over on the sidebar –>). Give this post some love and follow the blog so you don’t miss a single thing! Thanks for reading!
