My Life Has Been Full Of Changes....

I have been meaning to do a short little update on here, to explain my absence, but I honestly just have not had time or energy. 

First off, I had an opportunity come up that was going to allow me to go to the UK for nearly 6 months this year.

I accepted & was incredibly busy trying to prepare for such an adventure! SO much to think of, arrange, purchase, organize, etc. It's all quite stressful, honestly.

However, due to some circumstances & a few doubts in my mind, the opportunity didn't work out, so I won't be heading overseas for the spring/summer. 

But I will still be going to the UK & France for 5 weeks! I will be leaving in a couple weeks, and will be spending time in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland & France. (Or at least, that is the plan)

It's all pretty exciting & scary, but hoping that it will all work out for the best & I will have an amazing trip. 

Second, my Mom's health has been rapidly declining over the past couple months & on Sunday the pain got out of control, so she ended up going to the ER.

At this point, the doctors are discovering a lot that is wrong & are sorting out what sort of treatment they would like to do, but it does mean she will be in the hospital for quite some time. 

Pain control is their main focus & that is not going so well either. 

Needless to say, it's been very stressful, scary, and exhausting, plus hospital visits & all do take up a good deal of time. 

In Conclusion, 

Between trip planning, these happenings with my Mom, running the house, & working, my plate has been full & all my hobbies have been shoved aside. 
When I do have time, I just don't have energy. 
I am sure you all understand this.

I will be crafting & writing letters when I can, it just could be a while!

Also, this blog may be very quite for an uncertain amount of time. I do hope to blog my travel adventures when I return, but only as I can, and the photos will likely be mostly unedited, due to my laptop really not working anymore. 

Thanks for all the prayers & support! I will try to keep you updated as I can~ it's best to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, as they are the only places I will be posting for the next couple months. 

Lots of Love,


  1. I wish I had seen this post sooner! That UK trip sounds awesome! Can't wait to hear about it! :)

    I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. It's hard when your mom isn't doing well, and scary when she is in the hospital. Mom is so important in our lives, even when we're adults...maybe especially then. I will be praying for you and your mom!


  2. So sorry to hear about your Mom; that must be sooo scary. Praying for her.-Sam
