Welcome 2016

Hi loves,
So 2016 has started off quite nuts. Between the beginning of December till now, here at our residence, we have been in home-limbo. Mostly everything is in packed boxes, awaiting to be unpacked (no one's had time to do some grocery shopping, even though ironically enough, mum works at a supermarket) but right now we're living off of dry-toast and take-out = not good for our health.

But other than that, it's been a great Summer.
We'd done everything you could possibly imagine to keep entertained: outside and off the iPad/PlayStation! It was really important for my boyfriend and I to dedicate a lot of our time to Ethan while he was on school holidays, and I know I always seem to have a valid excuse for being absent for weeks at a time, but even though I'm a blogger, I'm a full-time mum and girlfriend too, and they will always come before my blogging life, #sorrynotsorry, but I'm sure most of you understand that.

Ethan's gone back to school and is already excelling at second grade (my six-year-old was told by his new teacher that if he wants, he can start reading year 3-4 books because he's done so well with the K-2 books {don't mind me as I sit here frozen because how is it possible that I've raised such a clever little boy?!}), it's not possible that I gave birth to such a smart kid. I'm so happy for him, and so so proud of all he's already achieved. Henry and I were certainly blessed!

But whilst I've been spending some quality time with my own little family, I've managed to begin feeling inspired and excited over what's to come on Heart, Style & Grace in 2016!!!
I've got so much new content planned, and some currently in the works, which is surprisingly calming me down and keeping me busily focused.

The beginning of the year usually feels like a clean slate, but for some reason, for me, it felt like last year's stress and struggles seemed to follow me right into the new year. I was feeling suffocated, and I felt like no one could help me out of this mess but me. But already, we're in February, and I've learnt that it's a-okay to ask for help sometimes. You're not alone and there's ALWAYS someone there to lend a helping hand, if you just ask for it.

See, 2016 is going to be a great year. No matter what obstacles you come across, you will overcome them. Happier and prouder of yourself.
