A new life in Seattle

5 days ago after a long 3 day road trip with my fiancé and pup, we moved to Seattle, Washington leaving our life in Austin, TX. I LOVED everything there was about Austin. The people, the food, the weather, the things to do. I met my fiancé on New Year’s Eve 2015 ringing in 2016 together with a group of mutual friends. We started ‘casually’ dating (that’s a whole other blog post subject) in April 2016. After about 3 months of that, we realized how much we liked each other and gave each other a chance. I officially gained a boyfriend (after 5 years of being single), in July 2016, and fast forward to October 2016, I was being proposed to with a man on his knee in front of the Austin Capital. And now January 2017, my fiancé received a killer promotion with a new company taking us to Seattle, WA. Scary, nervous, what a whirlwind of a year. I feel like I haven’t been able to keep up with all the crazy life changes that have happened in the last 9 months. But I’m excited, I’m hopeful and I know our big God who created has now led me on a new adventure to teach me new things with new experiences and for that I am grateful. Fears fails more things than failure ever will.

First blog post

I started this blog as a way to share my life. Why would you want to read my blog? I have no idea. HA! What I do know is that I’ve learned a lot of things, what I like to call shit I’ve learned along the way. At 34 years old, I’m successful in my career. I have countless girlfriends that are often referred to as my “groupies”, I have lost jobs in the past, I have lost all my material things, I have lost all my savings, lost my dignity and self worth. I even lost my older brother a few years ago due to an awful thing called Cancer. I write this to share what I’ve seen, yet more importantly what I’ve gained. I’ve gained a new zest for life and feel I look at things maybe just a little bit different than others. Doesn’t make me better or worse, just makes me see things through a different lens. For all that I have been through, gratitude is my saving source. Every day there is always something to be grateful for. Every single day. So as my first blog post, hello 🙂 Hope you follow me through the crazy adventures in life wherever this life takes me. XO
