It’s been a minute, blog!
In my absence, more big life transitions have happened, naturally.
I was able to graduate with my bachelor’s degree in nutritional sciences and dietetics. I have since begun graduate level coursework! So while many things are changing for me, life looks pretty much the same.
My husband and I were fortunate enough to get to visit Mexico! My parents are so sweet and generous and blessed us with a surprise vacation. It was so much fun and we really enjoyed the quality time together on the beach.
Here’s some highlights!
I can honestly say we had a terrific time! We hung out on the beach and by the pool, and even were adventurous (well, at least adventurous for me!) and went into the city and by the marina to explore!
As you might expect, God was working in my heart while we were there. In the midst of this amazing trip with my wonderful husband, and all of the anticipated changes we’d come back to, I felt like the Lord was showing me what it really means to rest.
This is something I have had to learn the importance of the hard way. College was easily the most stressful and exhausting time of my life, and not just because of school but the additional duties I had on top of it. At the beginning of college I thought rest way lazy and unproductive, and by the end of college I knew I would crumble without taking breaks and having fun, but still battled guilt when I wasn’t being “productive.”
I say all of that to make a point: I am still in the process of learning how important it is to have fun and do things that excite you with those that you love. It’s one of the many gifts that we have while we’re here, so I think it’s best to take advantage of it.
This time away was so precious for me; just to be with my husband, clear my mind, and reset to go back home refreshed.
So that’s all, really. It’s back to the grind, now! And I am pleased to say that life feels like it’s slowing down a bit.
My hope for the blog going forward is to make posts twice a month. I want to post things from recipes to shopping tips to opinions on nutrition trends! It’s going to be a challenge, but I am excited to have a creative outlet that incorporates all of the things I am passionate about.
So here’s to seasons of transition.
