Until then...

Looking back on my blog, I haven't consistently blogged in a long time. For this year alone, I've posted a total of 9 times, not including this post, and the last time was in August, with each post being an update post. While I love keeping track of what I've been up to, I don't enjoy that I've recapped months at a time in each post. I want to get into the swing of posting regularly again, but I'm not sure when that will be.

So much has been going on in life that blogging has taken a serious back burner. While I know I have those few loyal readers, I don't think my absence from the blogging world has been a big thing, which I'm okay with.

I've done a lot of thinking about this little blog and I've come to a solution: 

I'm going to stop posting. 

I love this blog and I don't want to lose anything I've gained from it, whether it be memories or friendships, but I don't have the proper time or plan to maintain this blog like it should be. My ultimate goal is to come back to blogging with goals and a plan on how to keep it going well for a long time. I just don't know when.

While I figure out my blogging plans, I will still post on Twitter and Instagram and you can always keep up and connect with me that way.

Until then...

Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend was so much fun! I love that it’s considered the unofficial start to summer because I spent a lot of time in the sun and outdoors.

Saturday was my family’s annual golf outing. Every year my extended family gets together and we golf along Grand Lake St. Marys. It was a beautiful day and we even got a few sprinkles that kept us cool. 

After the outing we all go to a local park and have food and hang out and even get prizes based on our golfing abilities. This year Zach, my sisters and I were in one car and we didn’t stay very long after the prizes because we were exhausted.

Sunday Zach and I went to a metropark nearby and hiked some of the trails with a friend and her two little girls. I didn’t keep track of how much we walked, but it was really nice to get out and walk through nature. While we were out a quick rain shower passed by and it rained for about 5 minutes while we were walking, but the leaves of the trees kept us dry for the most part. I was waiting for a rainbow to appear because the sun stayed out while it rained those few minutes, but I never saw one. 


Sunday night Zach and I went to another friend’s house and played the Ghostbusters board game. It was actually really fun. I played Harold Ramis’ character, Dr. Egon Spengler. The object of the game is to close the ghost portals before the ghost world runs out of ghosts. There are a bunch of different scenarios to play, so you’re not repeating the same thing over and over. 


Monday was a relaxing day for the most part, and then my siblings came over to swim in our apartment pool. There were a lot of people at the pool, as expected, but we were still able to move around the pool and keep cool. 

All in all it was a great way to start summer.

Overdue Update

It's been a hot second since I blogged about anything worthwhile.

Here's what I've been up to in the last couple of months:
1. We celebrated Zach's birthday, and I gave myself a nice little cut on my finger when slicing cucumbers. Liquid Bandaid became my friend for a few days.

2. We celebrated our friend's birthday a few days after Zach's.
3. We celebrated Easter with family and all the little ones had an Easter egg hunt.
4. We celebrated my 30th birthday.
5. We went to an art showing for our friend at a local coffee shop.
6. We had a date night and went to Columbus to see Amy Vachal, from season 9 of The Voice.
7. We broke out of the Museum Heist situation.
8. I went to Fort Wayne, IN with a friend for the Vera Bradley Outlet Sale. We went up the day before because our session started at 7:30am.
We went here for dinner the night before and it was a neat place, but their outside hours were spelled wrong! Once I found it before our pizza arrived, I couldn't stop staring at it.
9. I celebrated my friend's dad's 50th birthday.
10. We saw the Blue Man Group when they came to town.
11. We celebrated Mother's Day and my brother's birthday with family.
12. I went to a paint and wine Prince tribute night with a friend.
13. We spent time with family and friends and played fun board games.
