Monthly Best Of: October 2016


Is it just me, or did October FLY by? Can you believe it’s November already? I especially can’t because it is frickin’ 87 degrees here.

I’m hoping November flies by too because I’m really looking forward to December.

Below are the best posts of the month, in case you missed any: Continue reading “Monthly Best Of: October 2016”

Monthly Best Of: September 2016


Interesting month. Moved into a new apartment, settled into a new city, started some new classes… Hurdled over a ton of life’s obstacles. Tough track.

It’s been a crazy year, definitely is crowned one of my most intense ones of my life, and I feel like the year is going to continue to be crazy until the end. I’m curious to see what October, November, and December bring, hopefully more good than bad things.  Continue reading “Monthly Best Of: September 2016”

Monthly Best of: August 2016

best august

Crazy month. Mostly because up until about 2 weeks before the end of our apartment lease in Utah we found out we were moving to Texas. Stress and anxiety levels increased quickly. Then it was all getting down to business. Dealing with a cross-country move is a lot.   Continue reading “Monthly Best of: August 2016”

Monthly Best of: July 2016


Holy sh*t what a month. Just me? I’m still kinda in shock about it all. Still dealing with aftermath, still dealing with new changes, still dealing with new feelings, new thoughts. Still wondering, still waiting. Still hoping, still trying to fix things, still trying to hold on, still not forgetting, still learning. I’m exhausted just typing and thinking about it.

Monthly Best of: June 2016

best june

June came and went… Is it just me or time is passing by quite fast lately? Not much out of the ordinary happened, went through my usual routine, a bit of nature and city exploration here and there, lots of movie watching… oh and it seems like the global economy is collapsing cause you know, the UK bailed on the EU. So there’s that…

I hope you had a nice June and you have an even better July. Things they are a-changin’. Can you feel it? Continue reading “Monthly Best of: June 2016”

Monthly Best Of: May 2016

may best

May went by crazy fast for me. But that’s what happens when you’re enjoying yourself, isn’t it? Even though I definitely had some rough days, physically and emotionally, I had an overall very happy month with genuine happiness brought not by materialism (although there were a few of those moments, by doing some of my favorite things). I even found myself singing out loud outside with no music playing except for in my head. You know how often I do that? Never. I am grateful for what life and God have given me since my last birthday back in late April, a great gift. And I’m going to leave you hanging about the specifics.

But I won’t leave you hanging about sharing the best posts of the month based on views and likes. In case you missed any. Here they are: Continue reading “Monthly Best Of: May 2016”

Monthly Best Of: April 2016


This month wasn’t too eventful except it was my birthday and I celebrated in Mexico City for a week with family and friends. It was a great trip. Unfortunately for the blog, this time I didn’t visit any truly interesting or touristy places for me to document and share with you guys.

Monthly Best Of: March 2016


March came and went. We survived lived through a whole month in our new apartment and new town and loved it. We both joined gyms (different ones), I achieved a few PR’s, we got into hiking (there is so much outdoorsy stuff here), we tried new restaurants, we saw a few good movies and discovered an amazing theater (unfortunately 1.5 hrs away, which is not that bad for film buffs like us), and settled in.  Continue reading “Monthly Best Of: March 2016”

Monthly Best Of: February 2016

best of february

I just realized I completely forgot the end of month roundup at the end of February. It’s not too late to post it right? In between leap year and a crazy busy month, it was bound to happen.

So yes, this month was big in our lives, we went though lots of changes and emotions including a big move across states to a place we had never been and knew no one. Something prompted us to leave our last apartment in Oregon (finding out that the radon (radioactive gas) levels in there were shockingly high), and as we searched for a new place to live our minds, hearts and faith led us here to Utah! And though the move and search for a rental was stressful, we are now very much happily enjoying it here. It also always felt right since we made the decision. So cheers for new adventures!

And here are the top posts of February according to most likes and views: Continue reading “Monthly Best Of: February 2016”

Monthly Best Of: January 2016


This month was pretty chill and routine… lots of cooking, cleaning, working out, eating, scooping the litter box, reading, watching football and netflix, blogging, grocery shopping, and the occasional fun outing to the movies (watched some really good ones) and the theater. The theater wasn’t really routine as we hadn’t been in years and it was really fun.

I hope you had a good start to the year, and here are the best posts of the month based on likes and views: Continue reading “Monthly Best Of: January 2016”
