This going to be short and sweet because talking about it still hurts.
On December 23rd at 4pm we had to say goodbye to one of the sweetest souls I've ever known. Our dog, our family member, Riley passed away at the age of 14 due to ongoing health complications. He was adopted by our family so many years ago from the PSPCA and was given only at most a year to live based on his heart condition. After suffering from abuse from his previous owners, he joined a family that never stopped loving him. He was an unbelievably chill, sweet, docile and the most loving dog ever.
He is mourned and still loved by his family and we wish to see you again. Love you handsome.
Where I'm at it's a bit bleak outside, but I'm a big believer in being my own storyteller? What does that mean? It means I dictate how my day, week, life goes and how I decide to feel that day, week, month, etc... So even though the weather outside isn't as inspiring, I'll create my own inspiration.
(cough cough, cue segway...)
Speaking of inspiration, style inspiration, I saw this watch on Poshmark and got it for $5. If you follow me on Instagram then you saw this photo.

Hey guys! And gals!
I know with these winter months upon us, there's nothing better than to snuggle up with a warm mug of yumminess! And my go to drink is usually hot cocoa or a hot toddy, but these last couple of months I've been Chai obsessed!!! Don't judge me!
Hi guys! This is a awesome one! For this, you have to download the app called 'Poshmark' from your app store. Alright. And when signing up make sure to enter the code below, JHTRA, and you will get a $10 credit. Now shipping is $4.99 so this means you will have to find something for $5 or less. Now don't fret because there is PLENTY of things available in that price range. I got a set of 4 eye shadow palettes and my friend got a very cute skirt.
One last thing is that you will have to enter a credit/debit card info before you can complete checkout, but don't worry because you will not be charged anything. If anything, use a prepaid card or something you don't normally use. Check out my screenshots below.
Hope you enjoy!
My one year blog anniversary was last month! My first post was Nov. 1 2014! Yay! One year!
So let's just call today my 13 month, 1 day anniversary!
Have I grown? Well have you (and no, I'm not deflecting)?
I've lost over 30 pounds (YAY).
I've taken better care of my hair and skin and I've seen amazing results.
I'm getting pretty good at French. It's at the point where I can kind understand it in a spoken conversation but way better when I see it written down. I can translate about 80 percent of what I read. I credit this to my besties Duolingo and Pimsleur French. Now Duolingo is absolutely free, but Pimsleur costs $100. You can download it from the link or from iTunes or Google Play Store. Both are excellent at helping me learn not only what to say, but how to say it.
Lastly, I'd like to think I've grown emotionally. Only a little spurt maybe, but it's large in my eyes and it's a mere stepping stone to the person I want to be.
Dreamer, optimist, realist....a lot of "ist"s... No worries, I'm still trying to figure it out.
