Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged here. I was looking at my last post in February — so long ago! And now it’s the first day of December.
I kind of don’t know where to start. What do I want to write about? Do I want to catch up with my life, or just kind of start from where I’m at? How do I want to write it? Do I want to be detailed, or just write kinda vague posts? So many decisions! So I’ll do what seems to be my style. Just start writing whatever comes to my head.
I haven’t written since last February, but for those of you who don’t follow me on facebook, I am actually getting married this upcoming February!!!
This sweet man proposed to me September 18th, 3 days before my 22nd birthday…and I said yes 🙂
A dear friend from church and her nephew did our engagement photo shoot (which turned out great!!), and I put together a video of it here. We did some rushed wedding planning because 16 days later, with a few tears, I said goodbye to him and got on a plane to leave the country for 6 1/2 weeks.
I surprised him by coming home a few days earlier than planned. What I didn’t know is that the family I was staying with planned it so that he was babysitting their kids. When I walked through the door, not only was my love surprised, but I was surprised as well to see him sitting there!! It was quite the reunion <3
After spending a few days in Corpus, we both left to go spend Thanksgiving with my family. My sister is a photographer over at Snicker Noodle Photography, and did a second photo shoot with my fiance and I (you can see the edited pics on her facebook page 😉 ). The photos turned out great! And of course, I made another video 🙂
The plan was we would both spend Thanksgiving with my family, then he would go back to Corpus and I would stay a few days longer (since my vehicle was at my parents’, I would drive that down). I was hoping to spend the few days recuperating from being sick for the past 7 1/2 weeks (I think I had several different sicknesses while I was over there). What we didn’t expect is that even though it seems like I have gotten over the active infection, I still have a bad lingering cough that makes me feel like I have asthma (broncospasms) when I have a coughing spell. Because of that cough, I’m not able to go back to work (I work with a valet company, and running for cars would make me start coughing). So I’m here at my parents indefinitely until I either get completely well or am able to get more work as a virtual assistant.
I guess part of me starting up my blog again is because I really don’t have a lot to do here. I wasn’t planning on staying long, so I didn’t bring any books or knitting projects with me. I found a book to read, and a knitting project here to work on, so maybe I’ll write about those when I get the chance.
I also started up an instagram account for my blog, so you can follow my different life adventures at sankapupdesigns.
I guess that pretty much catches everyone up on my life these past few months. More adventures to come I’m sure!
