Seriously, there’s just something about celebrations in general that make me so happy. And one of my favorite “holidays” just so happens to be coming up this week! I’ll give you a hint: It’s all about love, friendship and sisterhood?! Did you guess it?

It’s Galentine’s Day!

What’s Galentine’s Day you might ask? Galentine’s Day is a holiday created by Leslie Knope, aka Amy Poehler’s Parks and Rec character, that occurs every February 13. Basically, it’s just like Valentine’s Day but it’s meant to be a celebration between you and your gal pals instead of your significant other.

If you’re new to Galetine’s Day, or are just looking for another excuse to celebrate with your girlfriends, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! Here’s three tips for planning the perfect Galentine’s Day get together!

As you might have read in my 12 Months of Happiness post (cough, cough shameless plug go check it out, cough cough) I decided to take a little “blogging break” last month. And it felt AMAZING! Not only did I take a blogging break, I basically took a break from all social media. In fact, I have tweeted or posted on Facebook/Instagram all year!

(Okay since December 2018, but “all year” sounds better and technically it’s a new year!).

Instead of feeling like I “have” to post certain things in a certain time frame, I want to start blogging exactly what I want in that given moment. I used to feel so pressured to quickly get up certain posts in a timely matter. For example, let’s say I traveled somewhere, I always felt the need to post about it within a few days of returning home from traveling. Whelp, that ends now. I plan on taking my sweet time when it comes to posting. Quality over quaintly am I right?

12 Months of Happiness: January 2019

January 30, 2019

Long time no see! Happy Wednesday and welcome back to the latest installment of my 12 Months of Happiness series. It’s crazy to think that this series is FOUR years old! That’s right, I first launched this series back in January 2015. That means that if this series were a college student, she would be graduating right now!

What’s even crazier is the fact that we are already (well, almost) two months into 2019. 

Here are some of the things that made January an amazing month: (Don’t forget to comment down below how your January went and what things made you smile this month! I LOVE hearing from you guys about what makes you happy!)

Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019

January 1, 2019

It’s officially 2019! And what better way to ring in a New Year then to reflect on the past year. If you follow me on Instagram then you might have already seen my 2018 Year in Review but I thought it would be fun to share it, well most of it, on the blog as well. The reason I say “most of it” is because I’m only sharing the photos here on the blog and not the boomerangs or videos.

Along with these photos, I also thought it would be fun to highlight a few blog posts from each month of 2018 as well. I decided to share my personal favorite blog post from each month, the most popular blog post from each month and I decided to include each 12 Months of Happiness recap as well. The “favorite” blog posts are just the posts that I had the most fun writing/coming up with. While the “most popular” posts are the blog posts that either brought in the most blog traffic, had the most comments/engagement or did really well on social media (i.e did well on Pinterest, etc).

Here’s a recap of 2018:
