Playground Photography

Hello! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ A few mornings ago, I visited a playground with my mom and siblings. While my mom followed Elizabeth around, I stayed with Isabella, who had just gotten up from taking a nap. She was happy to explore her surroundings, and I enjoyed photographing her! In this post, I’m happy to share the best pictures I took from that outing with you. 🙂

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day! ❤ This post is one that I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time now. I had to get everything just right to do so – and believe me, that took weeks, haha! Today I present to you my summer ’18 desk tour!

My Focuses For The Summer

My Focuses For The Summer

Hi there! Happy Friday to you! ❤ I hope you’re having a great weekend. 🙂 As the days have grown warmer here in Georgia, I have gradually began thinking more and more about how I’d like to spend the summer months. Living in the South means that our summer lasts usually from early May to late September, haha, so you can imagine why I absolutely love October!

Since I usually tend to spend the most time indoors in our hotter months (the humidity kills me lol), I am coming up with ways to spend this time wisely. Sitting around and blogging the whole summer away is tempting, but would definitely not be the smartest way to spend my time, haha! Because of this, I have come up with a list of several, productive things I want to do over the following months.

Summer OOTD – Pink Hues/Casual

Summer OOTD – Pink Hues/Casual

Hi there!! Happy Thursday to you! ❤ I have a very exciting post to share with you today 🙂 The last ‘outfit of the day’ post I did was back in November, haha, because I absolutely love fall fashion! However, I have been putting together some outfits lately for the warmer months that I’d love to post about on my blog, as well.

Today’s outfit is a beautiful combination of my favorite newest additions to my wardrobe! Bonus points for it being something I can wear on the hottest day in Georgia, haha 🙂 It has light colors, is fashionable, and can be worn most of the places I go! I hope you enjoy today’s post! ❤

Thoughtful Tuesday | Little Life Updates

Thoughtful Tuesday | Little Life Updates

Hello everyone! Ahh I’m so excited and happy to be back! How have all of you been? I’ve been absolutely fantastic. 💖💚

It was so strange to be away from WordPress for two full weeks. Well, alright I take that back; I haven’t been responding to comments or commenting on others’ posts, but I have been stalking the Reader just a wee bit. 😂 There were a few afternoons where I found myself bored (unnecessarily; I had plenty of things I could have been doing lol), and could not resist. However, it was pure torture to wait to comment until I was back to posting! So here I am, back to the blogging world today, about a week early. Why is that, you may ask?

There are two reasons: I was more than ready to be back to interacting with you guys, and I start 12th grade next week. I’ll have a lot to juggle with schooling and blogging if I were to start both in the same week!! So, upon my mom’s suggestion, I am back seven days early, which I’m very joyful about. I can’t wait to catch up with all of you! I’m also looking forward to some of the new subjects I’ll be studying for my senior year.

On that note, I must say that I can’t believe I only have two semesters left until I’m done homeschooling. 😱 That fact is SO exciting and kind of scary to me, too! Am I ready to adult yet?? lol I’ll turn eighteen next April!! Only time will tell, I suppose.

Back to my blogging break: I accomplished so many things!! It could not have gone more smoothly or beautifully. I’ll be sure to write more about that in detail in my monthly wrap-up post at the beginning of next month! To sum it up, I got back into reading more books, which makes me incredibly happy because I love reading, but it’s hard for me to make time for it nowadays. I decided on what changes I want to make in my typical blogging schedule; things are going to be more laid-back than they have been for the past few months. 🙂 I started cooking more; I’ve made a few new lunch dishes for me and my brother, and they turned out so well! I’ve been exercising more and doing yoga, which has been wonderful; I love getting fit and knowing that I’m making the right choices health-wise! I feel rejuvenated and 100% recharged, just like I hoped I would. I’m happy to be back to blogging, and I’m a much happier person in real life, too. ❤

When it comes to blogging, my motto at the moment is to blog comfortably – I’ve been pressing myself for blogging inspiration for too long! I’ll be posting when I’m inspired to and only then, writing standalone posts as they come to me and adding to series as I feel like it. Haha, that probably sounds like what I already was or should have been doing, but it isn’t. From now on, that will change.

Some of you may be wondering how my Mayan story is coming along, and I will say that it’s a nice work-in-progress. I have one book to finish reading on ancient Mayan history, then I’ll set out to write some scene ideas I have down. Because I write in short bursts of inspiration, it takes me longer to formulate stories than I’d like, but such is life. I am planning to share what I come up with here on my blog!

In the next week or two, I’ll be catching up on all the posts I’ve missed, responding to comments, and also finding new blogs to follow! That’s something I’ve missed doing these past couple of months; I didn’t have much time to reach out to new bloggers. That will change starting now. I’m really looking forward to meeting new blogging friends! 😊

My summer is drawing to a close, but that doesn’t make me sad in the least. I had a great time on my break, and the weeks before that were enjoyable, too.

I’d love to chat with you in the comments!!

What have YOU been up to lately?

I hope that you are all having a blessed week so far!

Hey guys! This is part eight of the summer memories series. ❤

I hope you guys like it!

Exploring New Places

Each year in my summer vacation we plan to visit some other country, so it’s new culture, new people and more! ‘Each year, a country’ has become our slogan!

I love traveling and it has become my best hobby ever! We started this since 2014, when we visited Thailand; later in 2015 it was China; and finally in 2016 it was Kenya (Africa).

I look forward of visiting new people each year and it gives me an amazing feeling that ‘I’m one with the world’ and that I don’t belong to a certain culture or country.

I still have to figure out for this vacation which country I’m gonna step into and enjoy! It’s just one world and one life, so let’s live it with harmony!

Thank you Maggie for letting me share my summer memories! ❤️

Aw you’re welcome, Apoorva! I’m happy that you got to be part of this series. 💖

Happy Thursday, guys xx
