WOW! Two Year Blog Anniversary and a Giveaway!

Hi There Lovelies ♥

Amazing! I can’t believe I’ve actually been blogging for whole two years!!! Last Friday I was having a conversation with my BFF and the amount of time I’ve been blogging came up and she gave me the statistics on the percentage of bloggers that quit within the first 6 months. I didn’t care to look it up, but I’m sure she’s right.

If you know anything about me, I’m about as flaky as can be. I know flaky sounds like such a horrible thing to be, but I promise it’s only with my own things. I will be excited about something but procrastination sets in and I’m done.  I do tend to work a little better (just a little) when I have a deadline.  I almost always complete things when I absolutely have no other choice. You see my little disclaimers after each of these sentences… just keeping my procrastinator self safe.

I am hoping to change this about myself. I know a lot of us suffer from it, so I know I’m in good company. I started working with a Bullet Journal in the hopes I’ll kick this and some other annoying habits I’ve procured over the years to the curb. I even wrote a blog post about it, which you can read here and I’ll also be writing a lot more about how I’ve incorporated it into my life. So stay tuned for that.

My procrastination is something I am not proud of but I openly talk about.  I have been and tried countless activities and without fail, I end up quitting. Anything from MLM’s different hobbies (If I gave you a list of the things I’ve wanted to do, you’d laugh) those things include soap making, jewelry making,song writing, poetry… Listen, I’m just all over the place.

Having a 2 year anniversary (Blogiversary) in anything is a major accomplishment for me. Thank you to all of you who stuck around. Thanks to those that come back to read each of my blog posts, I also want to thank the haters that try to bring me down, you are just motivation to keep going. Glad you’re here too.
