A few Random Things

I swear I didn't mean to disappear this month. But when you choose 'wellness' as your word for the year, you struggle through sickness in January. Yep, that's basically been the last three weeks for me.  I actually took four sick days last week. Four!!! That has never happened before. Its been rough, but the light at the end of the tunnel is here and I'm emerging. *jazz hands* (apologies for any unanswered comments from my last post - ill get to them). 

Anyway, today is a super random chatty post, because I thought "I cant only have one post for January, when I just posted that a goal of mine was 7/8 posts per month this year." So here are a few random things just because:

1. We booked tickets back to Romania for May to head to Danny's cousin's wedding. We may have also booked tickets from Romania to Greece for a few days for our honeymoon. We weren't planning on going on a honeymoon this year actually, as we just got back from Romania and had to head back there right after the wedding ... #expensive. We recently started to toy with the idea of driving from Romania to Greece since we would be there anyway. Randomly yesterday we found cheap flights and that was it. It was all very last minute and hella random but if you know me at all you know Greece is numero uno on my travel bucket list. I now cannot think of anything else but this:

Coffee Chats ~ Vol. 6 (Word of the year and plans for the blog)

Hi Guys! Can you believe we are halfway through January and this is my first post for the month? I got back home from my trip to Romania and Germany about a week and some ago and after being out of the country for 3 weeks, I have been busy dealing with work, my health (more on that in a bit), wedding planning and life enjoying. It's been a whirlwind. I thought I'd hop in quickly and update about it all (and chat a bit about my word of the year).

Cheers to the New Year!!

It's still mind boggling to me that tomorrow will be 2018. We all say this every year ... but I'm convinced that this year actually flew by. I'm not rushing in the year, but I do look forward to it since I get married this year (!!!).

Anyway, I wanted to hop on (again) to say whether you're ringing in the new year at a party, toasting champs with family and friends, at church (have done this so many times) or in bed (perfectly fine choice yo), I hope this new year brings the best to you and yours! I'll be bringing in 2018 with Danny and my new family (likely quite tipsy - Romanian alcohol is no joke).

2017 ~ Year in Review

When I think of my life I can pinpoint landmark years. I'll be showing my age here, but in 1996 I started high school, in 2003 I started my first undergrad degree and finished that degree in 2006. I finished law school in 2011. Those are all years I clearly remember. The most notable year is 2014 - the worst year of my life - the year I lost my sister and best friend.... the year that until this year, was where the landmarks ended.

I prefer to be lighthearted on this blog but if we were to get deep, in many ways 2017 had breathed new life into me and has brought my happy back! I was a zombie for a minute after 2014, and faking it till I make it for a couple years thereafter. I can say that in 2017 I made it and I've been truly happy. Here are some highlights in photos:
1. I got a cat!
