Welcome Back

Well, I’m back! It’s pretty cute how in my last post (almost ONE year ago) I wrote how I was excited to get back to blogging. Little did I know what lay ahead. Shortly after, I received a new job title and new responsibilities at WedLuxe Magazine, and any hope of focusing my energies anywhere else went right out the window.

Not to mention, I had a wedding to plan. Even with a wedding planner (and thank God for her!), planning a wedding is NO JOKE. Especially for someone who is largely ambivalent towards tablescapes, floral arrangements or the correct cardstock for Save The Dates. But, more on the wedding later. 

So, after a year of doing what I do and a few months of being a newlywed under my belt, I’m really excited to get back to where this all began nearly EIGHT years ago. It's shocking to realize that this site has existed since the dark ages of blogging, and while a lot has changed since then, the reason why I want to blog hasn’t. Back in ’09, I was living in a small university town, dreaming of moving back to the big city where I could finally start interning and working towards my career goals. Blogging opened up a new channel to meet and connect with people all over the globe, who in turn made my own world feel bigger. As a result, a few months after starting my blog, I uprooted my life to move to Toronto, transfer universities, and finally land the internship of my dreams.

Now, all these years later, I’m [almost] where I always wanted to be, but I have so missed the connections with other bloggers (or do we solely refer to them as “Influencers” now?), the weekly emails I used to trade with readers on all kinds of topics, and the things I learned from all of you. The world might have transformed a bit since then (particularly in the last month or so…), but I am so looking forward to what lies ahead in the coming year. I hope you’ll all stay tuned.
