What I'm Thankful for in 2018

What I'm Thankful for in 2018

This year has truly been life changing. These past few years have been filled with a lot of ups and downs, and a lot of loving and learning. This year in particular I feel I have grown the most and I am so thankful for all the changes that God has put in my life. I want to use this blog post to share what I am thankful for in 2018. Here we go… First is God. He has blessed my life in so many ways I can’t keep count. He continues to provide and show me things I didn’t know were possible for myself. With him, all things are possible! Now to my list:

  1. My Boyfriend - He has given me so many opportunities this year and there are too many to name but I’ll list a few: Hawaii in February, buying a house in April, continuing to teach me how to surf, encourage me to start my own business etc. He has truly changed my life for the better and I am so thankful for it.

  2. Living in San Diego - I moved here in 2016 and this year I have felt the most at home this year. I have made so many new friends and I just love being here. It truly is my happy place.

  3. Family - Of course their are ups & downs but I am thankful for my family and that each person has inspired me in different ways. I love them tremendously and don’t know what I’d do without them.

  4. My dog - Dexter makes me so happy and he has been my buddy since 2016. He has been there for all the highs and lows and he is like a small toddler & I love him for it. He always puts a smile on my face.

  5. Career Change - I switched careers in March. I went from working in retail to being an outside sales rep for an eyewear company. I have learned so much and continue to grow from my experiences.

  6. Officially starting my blog & Instagram - This summer I began treating my Instagram & blog as a business and I am so thankful. Through this platform I have connected with so many authentic and genuine women and connected with so many cool brands. I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store for me…

  7. Launching my own business - I definitely could not have done with without my boyfriend’s support! I am launching my own hair scarf / scrunchy company called SUMMER BUNS and it will be launching VERY soon! Stay tuned.

  8. Starting intermittent fasting - this has become a part of my daily routine and I have never felt better. I have lost 10lbs and feel better than ever. I have been eating healthier and just feel better overall so I am thankful I have implemented this into my life

  9. Learning to love to cook - this year I have truly been experimenting in the kitchen and trying and cooking new recipes. Some of my current favorites are cajun shrimp, spaghetti & meat sauce, and salmon with mashed potatoes and veggies. It’s becoming more and more fun for me which I love.

  10. Trying new things - I have pushed myself more than ever this year and so thankful for every opportunity that has come my way. 2018 went by so fast and I cannot believe where I am now. I am so thankful for all the people in my life and all those who I have just recently met. I cannot wait to see what’s in store for the last month of the year and I am so ready to finish it off with a bang.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and see what’s been going on in my life. Happy Thanksgiving and hope your day is filled with love and good food!
