a new season

I've been gone for a while and have had time to think about a lot of stuff. I didn't like the direction my blog was taking so I took a break and have finally decided to come back :)

So many things have happened since I left, in the beginning of January I contacted the amazing Melinda from Inspiration earth so she could give me advice so I could to begin a new journey in my life. I am now a vegetarian (for a whole month)!!! YAY Its been hard but I feel so amazing, I cant thank Mrs. Melinda enough for giving me such great advice and confidence.

I took a trip to North Carolina to visit all my friends and family and had a blast, it was so nice to see everyone I've missed so dearly! Maybe some time soon I can visit Bequer (my fiance) this march will be 2 years I haven't seen him. He told me he might come visit in September, this would be AMAZING <3 So I definitely have my fingers crossed.

I know I lightly brushed on being in and out of the doctors office for my thyroid, some doctors said I needed meds and others said I didn't so they finally referred me to an endocrinologist. Thank goodness she found the problem and I am now on meds and have lost some weight and feel less depressed and anxious. I'm so thankful for having the opportunity to see and actual endo! After YEARS of having my weight fluctuate for no reason it feels good to finally know this might be it.

I hope I haven't bore y'all to death yet hehe! Here are some new pictures of whats been going on in my life while Ive been gone...
