Life Update + A Few Goals for 2018!

I am super excited to get back into my reading this year! 

I don't really know where to start with this post as I would like to let everyone know what has happened over the years to myself and this blog. Trying to keep some things personal I want to let everyone know that I was in a terrible personal relationship for years. It got worse the last few years and I put up with it until I just couldn't handle it anymore. I totally lost myself from it all. I stopped enjoying the things that I have always loved - reading, baking, cooking, doing really anything. I went to work, tried to take care of the household, kids and spouse only to be taken advantage of by him. Emotionally abused, gas lighted, cheated on and so on. Fast forward just about two years to 2018, I am free and I am happy. It is still a journey I will be on for sometime but I am finding peace and loving life. I started picking up hobbies that I used to enjoy and find I am fully enjoying them again not just going through the motions because I think this will help me feel better. 

I am working towards catching up on reviewing books that are on my to-be-read shelf and returning emails to those who have sent me emails over the last couple of years. I want to get back into blogging full time again! I used to take great joy in it and loved spending time with my children reviewing products and books with them.  

For the next couple months I will start slowly back to blogging. I will aim for 2-3 posts each week and work on cleaning out my email inbox. I will be working on sharing personal life posts again, maybe a couple a month along with food and fitness posts. I have been working towards some personal goals the last few years and keep adding to them as time goes on. This year I would really like to pursue jornaling of some sort - gratitude likely being what I will start with.  Also would like to add in Meditation and mindfulness. Keeping quotes has been something I have enjoyed over the last year. I will post some on my blog that I think you may enjoy too. 

That's it for now. Next week I will post my reading goals as I am working on them right now. 

Have a fantastic rest of the week & weekend!
