Weird to think my hair used to look like this.

This morning before I headed off to work, I randomly started looking through our engagement pictures.
I find it absolutely hilarious to think that they were taken just over a year ago.
A couple of my girlfriends are getting married this summer, so I get to relive the excitement with them.

I thought I knew what married life was going to be like.
But I really had no clue.
I was surprised.
In a good way.
I still get stressed over the same things.
I still suffer from anxieties.
I still am exhausted from work.
I still love him.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway I am hosting.



I received this beautiful book from Shayla a little over a month ago, and even though I haven't finished it yet, I have loved reading it.
It allows me to enter a world that was very real, and very different from what I am accustomed to.

"Spots" is an autobiography written by Judy Brummer, a South African woman of British descent.
It follows Judy's childhood with her two African best friends and how polar opposite their worlds are.
It's funny, beautiful and powerful.
I highly recommend this read to anyone and everyone.
And one of you will be able to have their very own copy!
