Okay, so yes, it HAS been 5 months (6 months?!) since I have posted anything on here - aaaaaand since I poured out my little, bruised and eager heart to y'all. :) MAN. To look back and see what God has done in my life over the course of this year... over the course of almost two years, really. It's pretty nuts. He definitely knows what He is doing - and I'm grateful He's utilizing, equipping me, dusting me off when I fall down and alllllll the plethora of other things He does for me on this journey.
I could spend loads of time catching y'all up on all the things that have happened over the course of the time since my last post - but I'mma keep it brief, y'all.
*Oh, I'mma mess up for sureeee, but I am leaning into this and the Lord is pushing righhhhhtttt back. In the best way.
This may not be exactly what y'all were planning to sit down and dive into in this post... but if I'm not in the head space to post regularly like old times, I like to at least update when I can. It truly makes a difference when I can look back at my life, memories, struggles and blessings.
Now that I am finally settling into the swing of things over at Alyssa Cates Studio, I am feeling the itch to create for myself again. And y'all. That may just be through snapping pics on my iPhone and sharing them here. It's just something inside myself I can't deny! I like cute things, okay!?!? Even if I'm the only one reading this blog. ;) I mean, if the good Lord put that desire in my heart, may as well lean into it, right?! Who knows how often or what content I'll be sharing on here in the future - but this is me dipping my toes into the water (again). :)
Oh, and before I forget - I need to talk about this cutie tote bag that is so lovingly holding all my Whole Foods treasures. This thing is literally such a lifesaver - ask my husband. We use this tote on every grocery trip - I alwayssss have it in my purse. Every time we head up to the check out, I just hand them this (it's so thin and light weight - you can even fold it into itself!) and we tell 'em to fill 'er up. They can stuff it to the brim for all I care. It's cuter than a grocery bag and we are doing our tiny part of helping the environment. WIN! A few of my other favorite goodies at Talking Out of Turn (or how I love to refer to them as TOOT - I mean, come on... SO CUTE).... their pencil pouches (but mine is full of lipsticks, lol), funny coffee mugs (their "is it friday yet" mug was used at my old job every day as an act of #rebellion LOL) and trendy, poppy desk sets. Go ahead, treat yo'self. Donna and Tom would be proud of you.
Hugs, y'all. Till next time.
I'm Alyssa, thanks for stopping by! A few things: I enjoy laughing, making youtube videos and thrift shopping. Currently listening to "Everything Now" by Arcade Fire. I like my coffee black and my preferred method of maxin' & relaxin' is with my husband and pup.
