first things first… i am a blog fanatic! bloglovin is constantly on my firefox and i read new ones daily. i love blogs about fashion, weddings, food, books, photography and some that i couldn’t categorize if i tried… so why try? as life gets more and more complex and more and more connected, why not embrace it and combine all parts of your life. thru various stages in my life i kept journals… usually at moments or times when there were so many thoughts and feelings that i just needed to get stuff out. a pure stream of consciousness. but i was constantly cutting out pictures, making collages, gluing in flowers & leaves, sometimes ending up with journals that were twice as thick as when i had begun. i hope that this blog becomes something like that. using pictures, as well as words to tell the story of my reality.
i don’t know if it’s because i’m an only child, or my active imagination but there is something so comforting about having a conversation with an entity that is completely non-judgemental. but i guess that is because a journal is only an extension of yourself… while blogs are the next step. opening up your stream of consciousness to others to hopefully learn from them something about yourself, or something new that you need to consider.
so a little about myself. i would say that family is the most important thing to me. i consider certain friends to be family (shout out to my brothers of the heart, D in T.O. doing his thing xo, 3H may he R.I.P, and my heart sister, I living and loving her fam in LV). happiness is my most important life goal. now i know that this will contain a certain amount of professional and personal successes, where i will end up and how i will get there i am constantly working on and i can just hope that it evolves into a really joyful life. at the moment i really enjoy what i am doing… teaching pilates feels so fulfilling because i am helping people move more comfortably through the world, and to stand with strength.
i love my dogs. and peonies are my favourite flower… and i’m obsessed with wedding gowns with feathers when i always thought that i was going to be the sleek and simple girl. so surrounded by pictures of both since my desk is wedding planning central, the blog’s name was born. lol.
i’m studying to become a primary school teacher. but must admit that i’m more excited to use what i’m learning with my own future children than with starting my teaching career. although who knows when that is going to happen. but i know that i’ll definitely have them, when & where time will tell.
if you are reading this… thank you for taking the time. i hope that this is the beginning of a glorious new chapter for me, and to make wonderful new connections along the way.
