    AMEN SISTA. This year alone has been flyyyying by! I can’t believe it’s already July next week!! But CONGRATS on 20k, I’m so inspired by how much you have grown as a blogger in such a short time. Don’t be surprised if I bug you with questions since I just started mid-January! 😉

    I love pineapples and neon yellow. But lemons is a new thing and I’m loving it on this dress!

chicwish lemon print dress

There are a few things I am obsessed right now: flamingos (did you see yesterday’s post HERE), pineapples, neon yellow, and lemons! This Chicwish lemon print dress has  TWO of my favorites, so how could I resist? Plus, is this not the cutest dress you have ever seen in your life (#swoon)?!?!! Today I want to talk a little about what to do when life hands you (unexpected) lemons!

This is such a fast-paced world we live in now. The world of instant gratification. As I hit my 20k mark on Instagram, I reflected on what has happened with me in such a short amount of time. Do you just feel like months are just flying by and you look back and say “what in the world happened”? When we were in high school that’s all we wanted. We would watch the clock click down to 3:15 and then run out of there. We just couldn’t wait until senior year and then we just couldn’t wait until college and then we just couldn’t wait until graduation. How many of you would die to re-live your high school glory days or those magical college years when you had very little ‘real world’ problems?

Now, as we get older, we want the clock to stop or at least to slow wayyyy down. Now, some of us have kids that grow up wayyy too fast! These past six months I have 1. started a blog 2. reached 20k followers on Instagram 3. met and collaborated with some AMAZING shops and designers 4. started a new job (and then now another one in two weeks) 5. moved into a new apartment (this weekend) 6. my sister and brother in law are becoming foster parents any minute now 7. fallen in love (probably for the first time in my life) 8. made some AMAZING new friends 9. started a Facebook blogging support group (coming soon).

How does all of that happen in six months?! I have just accepted that life has handed me some pretty delicious lemonade, and no ONE and I mean NO ONE is taking that away from me! I have learned not to question, but to be grateful for everything God has given me. I never take anything for granted (not a minute or even a second). I continue to strive to do better in every aspect of my life, and hopefully I can come back with another amazing list in the next six months! Thank you for helping me get here, and please leave a comment with what all YOU have gone through in the past six months! I would love to get to know more about you!!
