Yes I'm still alive.

Hello friends!

Oh my, what a crazy few weeks it has been! We've been back from the States for not even 3 weeks and I already feel like I need a holiday... ;)

We've been busy-busy-buzzzzzzy with welovepictures, the SARIE Bruid has work streaming in for us. Blessed.

My bff also came to visit for a week and then I pretty much dropped her at the airport and picked my mum up. All in all, it's been pretty mental. Lovely and awesome, but mental.
I literally just came back from the airport to send my mum off and now I'm sitting in the silence that is my living room, soaking up the sun and finally finding the time to update my blog.
There is a mini tornado in my head of all the things that I want to share and say... I don't even know where to start!

I think I'll start with the most exciting news :)
From November I will be working part-time! Hooray! My awesome husband has decided that he'll happily carry the weight of our business so that I can get a few days off to be a happy house-wife. Since we got married last year, I'll honestly say that it has been all my heart wants. This means that I'll also be able to spend more time on my blog again and oh my, I have so many exciting ideas and changes I want to make! Plus I think a blog make-over is way overdue.
I've also been toying with the idea of adding a little online shop and perhaps selling a few once-off items as well as adding a DIY section of all my little home-projects. BUT... I still have to figure it all out, and with the Wedding-Season starting here, I know it'll be a slow process.
Exciting nonetheless! :)

I am also now officially part of the iGang and you can now follow me on twitter and instagram (unfortunately you have to be part of the iGang to follow me on instagram) :)
I'm still somewhat slow on the tweets but I'm totally loving instagram and the easiness of being able to share my life through pictures (I know, I know, that's super corny, I've been trying to think of a better way to phrase it for almost ten minutes and I can't come up with anything :P)
I thought I'd share a few pictures I've been instagraming for all my friends that are not part of the iGang or on twitter. For everyone else, follow me :)

Okay, bye! :)
