I'm back!

Guess who's back, back again... let me stop while i'm ahead... but yay, I'm back! I'm so happy to be back blogging after a much needed break but I certainly missed it and I'm hoping to come back full force.

I hope everyone had a wonderful end of 2016, I know there was so much going on with the election,  and the chaos of the holiday season. I'll be honest, I went through such a whirlwind of emotions myself at the end of the year. Between long hours at work, emotions from the election, Christmas, New Years, trying to spend time with friends and family, sewing class (a new passion of mine!)I was all out of energy and did not have the time nor motivation to write. I was not thrilled with how some of my posts were coming out and I felt like they were missing my true voice - it got lost somewhere along the way. My goal is to make my posts more genuine, with my ideas, opinions and reviews.

Anyway...how was everyone's holidays?! I spent a lot of time with family and my brother who just finished his first semester in college. We spent Christmas in Delaware, watching movies, listening to Christmas songs on repeat (but my mom and I are OBSESSED with Christmas music -- seriously I start listening to it the day after Halloween because I'm crazy), and burning Christmas cookies (obviously not on purpose but I'm not the best baker!). One of my new years resolutions was to cook more and better. Clearly people agree because I got 2 cookbooks and a slow cooker for Christmas. NYE was a blur that I spent with friends and family. My roomie and I were crazy enough to throw our own NYE party at our place and it actually came out amazing!

I also got to spend my first holiday with my boyfriend which was really wonderful. I had mentioned on Instagram that he was moving up from Florida and he did in October. So we've been adjusting to being in the same city and we've finally experienced what it's like to date like a normal couple!

Well that's a little bit of what I've been up to, and again I'm so glad to be back. Let me know in the comments if there's anything specifically you want me to post about!

Xo,
Maia
