Late Fall Vibes | Thoughtful Friday

Hey guys ❤ I hope you’ve all had a beautiful day! Rarely do I post this late in the day, haha, but I’ve been thinking, and I knew it would be nice to have a place to share my thoughts.

How have you guys been on this fine Friday? Happy December 1st, by the way! I’m so happy it’s this time of year again. I love Christmas shopping, holiday music and cheer, and just the overall mood of the month. It’s going to be amazing!

Before I can fully move on to the month ahead, however, I have some things I’d like to share. Nothing bad or eventful has occurred; I’d just appreciate being able to write about what’s been on my heart.

I hope you like the pictures I’ve included! They were all taken over this past week. We’ve been spending more time outside recently not just because of the great weather, but also because Elizabeth has been old enough to begin exploring the outdoors. ❤

Thoughtful Friday |
My Current Thoughts

First, I’m learning to balance blogging with the rest of my life. For a long time, I have been incapable of giving the correct amount of time to blogging. I love writing posts, but I need to figure out the best times to do so. Deciding what to write and when to post them is something I’m still experimenting with. I enjoy blog reading, but it would make me much happier if I had certain times I did it. Reading a lot at once instead of a post here and there would help me divide my time between blogs.

(To the bloggers whose blogs I haven’t commented on in so long – I am truly sorry! I haven’t forgotten about you; I’ll be back in your notifications soon.)

Two, my family and I have been adjusting to my mom being on bed rest. Life is pretty normal again, but our mom is taking it easy as much as she can, so I’m helping out with more housework and some babysitting of Elizabeth. There have been emotional highs and lows for us recently (especially me), but we’re all slowly working together, and life is becoming happier again.

Third, I am so excited for the new year. Does anyone else have any amazing ideas in mind for 2018? I can’t wait to pursue my hobbies and interests more, hopefully get my first job, and meet my new baby sister! And there’s no telling where my blogging ventures will take me! ❤

Thank you so much for reading! I hope that you all have a beautiful month. ❤ Please let me know in the comments below:

What are YOU looking forward to in December?

  2. Aw, Elizabeth is so cute! ❤ I am looking forward to a few things this December, but I am probably most excited about my Nutcracker performance that is next weekend. 😀 Loved reading your post as always. I am keeping your mom in my prayers as she is getting closer to delivering. I know it's super exciting having six younger siblings myself. I am sure that you're doing a great job around the house and that you're a huge blessing to your mom! Have a great December. ❤
