The last few months have had many, many ups. For starters, Jon and I got engaged! Two days before our fourth anniversary he popped the question in our living room on Monday afternoon (classic Jon). I was totally surprised and genuinely shocked because I had no idea that he was planning to propose. This was very, very exciting for us! We were officially engaged and eventually we would be married.
We have not put very much thought into a wedding, considering we are not in too big of a rush to get married. Eventually, a wedding of some sort will occur though, my name will change, and we’ll just be another married couple, which is fine by me.
The next major update is that I decided to create my very own Etsy shop! (search CreationsByNad on Etsy or go to etsy.com/shop/CreationsByNad to view my shop)
This is something I had wanted to do for a while, but I needed a push from my encouraging twin sister to actually do. So far, my shop seems to be doing well for a startup.
I have made over 50 different items, had a few sales, and each day I keep trying new things in an attempt to build a brand.
Lastly, after quitting smoking I realized how much I love food. Yes, we all love food, however I have never in my 23 years on this earth had to worry about what I eat because I have always been thin. However, when you eat the way I was (in a restaurant 2+ times a week and never even consider purchasing a vegetable) it doesn’t take long to figure out a change must be made.
By this point in time, I had been going running for over a month pretty regularly because I genuinely enjoyed it. I LIKED TO RUN! Which was very weird considering I had never once gone running for fun, nor did I think it would ever be an activity in which I would be fond of, but I did in fact enjoy it. When I was running, it was just me. No worries. No one else mattered. Not a damn thing was on my mind except running.
I began to see the amount of just terrible food I was consuming and decided that I did not quit smoking in order to live a long and healthy life, just to poison my body with over processed food. I am by no means an expert when it comes to eating clean, but I like to think I am on the right track. Some days I still eat pie or cookies, but most I try to nurture my body and preserve it so that it will remain in its best condition for as long as possible.
Many people who have been reading my posts since the beginning may be wondering about my dad and what is going on with his treatment and I’m not going to say too much except he is fighting as hard as he can! Chemo is very hard on the human body though, so he is tired and spends a lot of his free time just relaxing and enjoying his spare time. He always remains positive and hopeful though.
