a year ago

here is a fraction of a post I stumbled across while doing some housekeeping on my blog. er, what's left of my blog. what's funny is that it was written exactly a year ago today. so. here you have it:

here we are, closing in on spending six months of our lives together. I am endlessly in awe of the fact that I am his; that he truly is the man I was so crazy about ten years ago; that we found each other again after so much time apart. 
he made it easy for me to fall for him, and I did. he saved me from an ordinary life. every day with him is extraordinary. I love him and I am free.

 now we are engaged. we live in a house. and we are still crazy in love.

the fog is lifting

can you believe how long it's been since I've updated my blog? is it even a blog anymore? is anybody out there?

anyway, I have moved out of my fabulous apartment, which probably explains my absence for the most part. no more little adventures to report, or macarons eaten, or taking myself on dates to my favorite little spots around town.

it's not an ideal situation, but I'm surviving. I couldn't do it alone, and I'm very fortunate to be dating someone so fantastically perfect for me that it makes me wonder what I did to deserve his attention.

for now, I am here to say... I'm here. I hope to be able to enjoy writing more in the near future. I can feel extraordinary things happening.

simplified datebook from laura!

a couple weeks ago I entered Laura's Simplified Datebook Giveaway... and I won! when I came home late last night, there was a package sitting on my porch!!!!!

you know she wrapped it in pink paper ;)



she even threw in a couple of extras. because she is amazing. how amazing is she?! this is not rhetorical. I actually want you all to tell me how amazing you think she is :)

and the datebook looks amazing. I go back to work for some training before the school year starts, so I will truly be able to report on how amazing it is after I begin using it!

Laura's blog is wonderful. a mix of photos, product shares/reviews, some birchblogging, and posts about daily life. not to mention her adorable pup, Riley! what's not to love? you should all go check it out!!

life lately

I know I have been cruddy at updating. a lot has been going on. I would say that I will be better about it, but I honestly don't know if I will! so for now, here is a short life update:

I have been exploring the city a lot,

and eating macarons. so, so many macarons,

occasionally some "real" food,

and consequently doing yoga several times a week,

and of course, doing my nails and getting away on the weekends,

and going on lots of dates. with myself,

oh and maybe with Brett Dennen as well,
we're an item now, it's no big deal.

I have been a bit of a social media freak lately. instagram has always been a favorite, so feel free to check it out if you haven't already! my username is sofia_maria.

I can't promise that I will post more often, but I can promise that I will try. I hope my few readers enjoy my efforts on this extremely photo-heavy post!
