Happy Sunday babes! It feels like it's been forever since I've come on here to write a little life update yet it feels like so much has been going on since in the past 3 months. I've been meaning to write this post for quite some time but for one reason or another I just haven't had the chance to. If I am being
very honest there are a variety of reasons why I haven't been so active on here. I mean from personal scheduling reasons to business aspects too. So let me get right into it and share what has been going on and give you a glimpse at real life and just chatting about a little bit of everything.

PART TIME | having two jobs.

The biggest change in the past few months has been my part time job! Yes I've been working two jobs since September... and it hasn't been easy you guys but I love a good challenge and the extra money is really nice. I took a temporary part-time at my old company and at the very beginning it was extra hectic... the same week I started the part time my mom left to Ecuador for 6 weeks! And my schedule was super crazy but honestly I dont know what I would've done without my family... they helped me so much with Emme those 6 weeks. I thank God for them daily. 

My schedule was crazy, there were days during those 6 weeks that I did not have 10 minutes to myself. The first week, I cried. I have to be honest, it was a 180 on my regular schedule and especially not having my mom. But like everything, things pass and things get better and my mom came back, a few weeks passed by and now I am used to my routine and I love being this busy. So now you guys know why my time has been divided and why I haven't been as active on here. But my blog always has my heart... it's my baby and I always love coming on here and sharing my life update with you guys, I love the relationship we've built and I am happy to be 100% transparent. 

INSTAGRAM | the bread and butter.

When it comes to the blogging business, I have to be honest you guys, Instagram is the bread and butter right now, at least for me it has been the past couple of months. I can't tell you how much work I've been proposed that have all been social media only. The entire month of November I worked on Instagram campaigns, it's just what's been happening lately for me. A lot of brands and agencies are looking solely for event attendance and social media coverage, whether it's IG stories, takeovers and IG videos/photos... but all on social media. 

The truth is, and I've talked about this with my blogger friends, that people want instant gratification and are no longer reading... a lot of my loyal readers are my OG's... that have been here for the beginning and I appreciate that, I do this for you guys. But reality is that Instagram has taken over, it's easy, it's quick, it's to the point, it's 21st century. But no matter all of that I will always make my blog a priority even if I come on here just 3 times a month. It's important for me to connect with you guys at this level, I feel that this is how we got to where we are. And I appreciate every single one of you that reads my posts. For daily updates and behind the scenes on my life, you can always find me on IG, I've always admitted to IG being my favorite form of social media:) but this blog ain't going anywhere, I am here for the long haul.

LIFE HAPPENS | kids + priorities. 

And in case you didn't know I hosted Thanksgiving (pics here) and that week was crazy, between deadlines and my part time job, the house, the kids and trying to just take it all in... I had little to no time to come on here and write this much needed post. After Thanksgiving, the kids got sick, first Ben had a cold virus and then Emme caught croup:( it was a crappy 2 weeks and very long nights but I am just grateful these are illnesses that have cure. I've prayed had for those kids who have incurable diseases and their parents. Those are the real heroes in life. 

I am happy to have been able to get this post up and out for you. I know the next 3 weeks will be as or more crazy busy but you can always keep up with me on Snapchat and IG. There are a couple of holiday posts coming this week and I am hoping to also share some ideas for the new year that I think will help you guys start it off with a bang! 

Thank you guys so much for reading, have a great new week! And let's kick some butt!
