New Year New Me

New Year New Me

Happy New Years everybody! At what point is that gonna get old to say…if it hasn’t yet already?

Well a LOT has happened since my last post….

The snowbird in me finally got down to Florida with all the ponies, everyone is happy and settled enjoying the sunshine! We are in full swing down in Ocala with the show season just around the corner and it could not be more exciting. It was great having a break but I really feel that 2019 is going to be a great year for everything and it’s so exciting and motivating!

We were thiiiiiiis close to closing on a house down in Florida but when we got down there I absolutely HATED it. Just one of those things where you can’t see a vision for it at all. It just sucked. Buuuut not all hope is lost, we found another house and with the right price it can be something stunning! So fingers crossed everything is good through inspections and all because this is the one…

Speaking of the one, we had a fabulous vacation in Antigua visiting my family for NYE. Antigua is absolutely STUNNING. Think yachts galore, it was amazing. If you’re looking for a less touristy Caribbean vacation then you must visit Antigua! Oh and PS WE GOT ENGAGED AHHHH. Yup, it’s real as hell, and I am now a fiance and ahhhhhh.

Ugh too stunning, I’m obsessed

Ugh too stunning, I’m obsessed

To be honest, it’s still settling in a bit, for both of us I think. It comes in waves of like WOW it is happening. For instance, I’m currently watching “Say Yes to the Dress” and I am crying a freaking river. But it is all so amazing and I’m so excited to spend the rest of my life with my best friend!

That’s it for today, off to go create a Pinterest board and start planning EEK!
