Sometimes life happens

Oy, I've been gone for a long time. Life gets in the way. And if I've learned anything these past few weeks, it's that life is too short to take for granted. I apologize for my absence, but I'm going to try my hardest to post regularly now. Summertime is a busy time for me. I work 45+ hour weeks and have other things to take care of (student teaching, tutoring, gardening, etc).

So I thought I'd update you on my life and some things that have been happening in Tiffany-land lately.
My fourth year of university is finito, and I'm only one year away from being a certified teacher. I can't believe it. This time next year will be full of possibilities and potentially life-altering decisions. I've been contemplating a move to the southern states (Texas, specifically), which would mean a separation from my family and my comfort zone. It's scary, but super exciting at the same time. I'm giddy with the thought of all the potential possibilities for my future.

I've gone full out vegetarian, and have been for about a month and a half now. I've never felt happier or healthier. I know the choice is not for everyone, and I'm not preaching to you, but I do think in the long run it is a healthier lifestyle choice for me. My family has been very supportive and we've been trying out some delicious and meat-free dishes.

I've lost 45 pounds in total since I started trying to lose weight/make healthier choices. In about 9 months I've shed that weight, and it seems surreal to me. Losing 3( sometimes 4) sizes thus far has not only boosted my confidence, but also my willingness to try different styles. I still would like to lose an additional 20-25 pounds, but I'm going to continue with my healthy weight removal, regardless of how long it takes to reach my ultimate goal.

Finally, I've recently learned to cherish the things I take for granted in my life. My parents, my family, the small joys like sunshine, flowers, or a laugh can go a long way to make me happy. Sometimes we get caught up in the trivial things in life. I won't disagree that life is busy and that it's easy to get swept up with the ebb and flow of pressing daily matters, but I do thank the Lord every day for my family and everything that He's blessed me with. I take time each day to hug my parents, say "I Love You" a little more often, and apologize for my behaviour to others if it's unnecessary/rude.

That's all that's new with me lately. What about you, lovelies? Stay tuned for posts about some of my recent outfits and the bedroom-revival project I've been working on!!
