Has it really been a month???

I seriously can't believe it's been almost 1 month since I've posted here. Life just happens and then this California weather just makes you want to be out and about all of the! Anyhoo, I hope you all have been well. I've been working, living, celebrating, and mothering a lot lately. I just celebrated my 40th birthday a few weeks ago....What an amazing weekend! I really feel like I stepped into my forties with a bang! I've been doing TONS of self work...I mean really just working on being a better me and I can definitely see some positive changes. Not that I was some kind of monster before, however we all have our issues and I definitely have things I struggle with that I must work on daily. So, through lots of prayer and discipline, I've been able to be a better me little by little. There's still work to be done, but I feel stronger, kinder, and happier than I ever have been.

Now with all these happy feelings and self work has come a great need to nurture and reward myself, which has turned into lots of spa treatments and shopping lately. Eek! I thought I'd share some of my recent purchases with you guys {yes, there were others}, and of course I'm in LOVE with everything...Lol! Isn't that normally the case though?

  1. Ahhhhh I've always dreamt of the Rogue!!! So sexy! And that Anthropologie Bordeaux Dress is EVERYTHING! I died when I saw you wear it on IG. By the way, I love following you. You & your fam just make my heart melt.

    I've found that when I took time off from blogging for a month, I returned a better person...and I wasn't a monster either but I think you need a break sometimes to rediscover yourself and spend time with yourself without sharing with the world what you're doing.

    Congrats on the big 4-0! You don't look a day over 25 :D and yes, I do mean that! And that dress you wore for your birthday was oooooo girl!!!
