catch up + life changes

oh, friends. I haven't forgotten about you. I am truly so sorry for the lack of posts this month - life has been hectic. recently, I feel like I haven't had time to breathe, let alone blog, but I am writing this post today because I know I will not be able to write for the next week or so as I'll be waiting for internet in my new home (plus unpacking, plus life is just insane!).

so, august has been one of the fullest months I can remember in the last year for sure. I'm still feeling like 24 is a good year, despite some deeply painful emotional trauma I went through at the beginning of this month. 

this month I went to my first ever concert - mumford and sons. I cried. I laughed. I sang along. I danced my heart out. I cried some more. they even played my song! 

before vacation, I worked a lot of overtime and anytime I wasn't at work, I would be at home packing and preparing for my move.

I also went to my hometown for a close friend's wedding. it was such a special day, and I got to do the bride & bridal party makeup. this is the second time I've been asked to do wedding makeup. it's so nerve wracking, but it's fun being able to share my girly side with others :) the bride is like a daughter to me (yes, you read that right), so it was really lovely to be there to celebrate with her and her husband!

while I was home, I was very sick so I spent a lot of my time there sleeping and cuddling with my nephew. I also took my momma and sister out for a fall-inspired photo shoot, which I'll be sharing more of next month, but here are two of my favourite shots (all taken on an iPhone 6!).


since I've been home from vacation, my days have been filled with packing and preparing to move into my dream apartment TOMORROW. once it's all set up and I have appropriate furniture, I'll be sure to post some pictures of the space for everyone to see :)

thank you for being patient with me this month. I promise to be with-it again soon. :)
