Last week was quite a busy one...
I had the pleasure of attending my very first Indian wedding. They really don't lie when they say Indian wedding's last an average of three days. The Maiyan, ceremony and reception all took place on separate days. But I had so, so much fun and was really grateful to be a part of the lovely couple's big day. I stuffed myself full of spicy and sweet traditional dishes, got to wear stunningly intricate outfits, learned words in a new language, got my bhangra on (well at least I tried to) and met a ton of really welcoming and humble new faces.
During this same week, my Aunt and cousin were here from BC. My cousin has just moved to Ontario for the next five years as she attends college. It's been a very long time since I saw her last and I'm really excited to show her around all of my favourite spots in the GTA. The time flew by as each day was jam packed, but it was really nice getting to spend time with them both, and it seemed like the perfect time to take a wee break from blogging. (How many times can we say 'time' in one sentence?)
Yesterday I began school again. I've touched on this in a post previously, but for those of you who are new, I'm currently taking part-time online courses to become a Certified Association Executive (CAE). I am learning the skills and best practices necessary to become a CEO or Executive Director of non-profit associations. From now until December, my nights are going to be filled with studying and discussion posts. I'm afraid there will be limited blogging opportunities, but I am doing my best to pre-write some posts so I won't be M.I.A for long periods of time.
With Beauty by Birdy's first birthday around the corner, I have placed a fair amount of pressure on myself to continue pushing out posts and making each one better than the last. Which is why I chose to take this little break. I really believe in quality over quantity and want to be proud of the content I publish. But I have not disappeared forever and I am excited to get back into the swing of things and bring you tons of fun fall themed posts. Talk to you soon!
