Ladies and gentlemen (mostly ladies, let’s be real), it has been a minute since I’ve done a Quick Edit. Where did the time go, you ask? My time has gone to creating editorials, helping run advertising operations, Christmas gifts, planning, traveling, more planning, and cleaning. And a bunch of other things in between. That pretty much sums up my December so far. In two days time, I am looking forward to relaxing and drinking some serious wine.
Without further ado, this week’s Instpiration:
Friday morning I will make the drive out to New Mexico to spend Christmas with my family. I would fly but I have to bring my corgi Ens along. Looking forward to spending time with my family and boyfriend, who will also be joining this year! My family owns a few acres, so it’s really nice to get out to the country and ride horses and let the dogs off the leash. There should even be a little snow!
A few weeks ago now, I introduced my little side project Trip Planner. I was so overwhelmed with positive comments of people liking the concept and saying how cool they thought it was. So a huge thank you to everyone who commented kind words, as I wasn’t quite sure how it would be received! Trip planning is something I have always wanted to do, even before I started blogging. I knew one day my blog would be a great segment in to this adventure. I didn’t start my blog because of it, rather the idea of integrating both sort of came together over the course of this year.
I have been busy planning a few trips in exchange for feedback and references. If you or anyone you know would like a free day planned for an upcoming trip, please reach out (firstname.lastname@example.org)! I’d like to plan a few more free days for people in exchange for reviews and their honest feedback of the process.
I hope you all enjoyed my mini series of lesser known things to do in Paris, London, and New York. I don’t really plan on taking any time off from blogging next week, though my posts may end up on different days of the week. I will definitely have two posts up next week! I feel like bloggers don’t ever really take vacation. I know some will disagree with me, but right now I am all about getting that end of the year content up. Work work work work work. And like I mentioned before, I take the whole end of the year off. So come Friday I am living the dream until January 3rd.
I have a lot of things coming up next week and this month. My birthday is December 28th and I’ll be the big 2-9. So close to 30 guys! I remember being in grade school and thinking how ‘old’ 20 sounded. Most things in my life have only gotten better with age (except fat loss, that sh*t is no joke once you hit 28), so bring it on! Then on January 15th I will celebrate my 1 year blogiversary. More updates on that as it gets closer though.
I hope everyone has a great holiday. Keep an eye out on my blog for some posts to read after that Christmas ham sets in, and once your ‘family time’ threshold has been tested. That happens to everyone, right?
What are your plans for the holiday? Leave me a comment below!
