Hi everyone! I m currently sitting in LAX airport waiting to board my flight to......PARIS. I'm early for once, so I figured I finally after 6 months MIA blogging, i'd give you guys an update on my life. For one, I'm busy. Like really busy. Hence why I don't always have a moment to blog anymore. I have spent the past couple of months working THE BEST job that incorporates all of my favorite things, photography, traveling, planning events, fashion, babies, etc. For someone as indecisive as me, its perfect! I have always had tons of interests, and job interests, but they'd always require me to focus on one thing. Do you know how hard that is for me? I have a creative mind, and it always has to be doing all different tasks in order to function properly. So finding a job that has everything I love has really been incredible.
Also, if you cant tell from my social media channels, I have been living in san diego the past two months. Well kind of living there, in between all the traveling! In the past two months I have been to New York twice, Philadelphia, Tampa, LA, Arizona, and now Paris! Throughout the busyness, this scripture I came across really stood out to me - Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8.
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace."
I really wanted this somewhere near to me, something that I could always have with me. So often we think life should always be happy and perfect. Honestly, if you look back on my previous posts, I was heartbroken for a few years. I had to take a break, I had to give up, to hate and to love, to tear and mend, to be silent, to throw away, etc. I didn't have much direction. Each one of these words in this scripture stays so true to my heart, because I have personally experienced them. Obviously not kill or die haha. When I look back at my life thus far, there has been a time, and a season for everything. Not to jinx it, but the season that I am currently in, happens to be an incredible one, but I have to constantly remind myself that without that healing, and silence, and hate, it would not be possible.
Sorry about the rant, but I just wanted to reiterate why this scripture is so important to me! So when I found out Jord watches offers custom engravings, on a watch (scripture on time*) of all things , I decided this is how I wanted to keep this scripture with me always. Plus, they are the most unique watches around. They are wood! I actually gave away a Jord watch last year in my non profits fashion show's auction, and it was one of our highest bid on items. I may have super cheap clothes.....(Forever 21 addict over here), but I can appreciate good quality jewelry. I don't have to worry about them breaking easily, turning my fingers or wrists green haha, and they are the key pieces to making my $20 outfits stand out. I'm going to link my favorite Jord one below, as well as offer a discount code and a chance to win a $100 gift card, regardless if you win or not you will receive a 10% off coupon, but act fast because the giveaway ends March 4th. They are perfect for a personalized gift, OR obviously just a gift for yourself
