I'm still here ... I promise!

I feel like I've been away for far too long, my last post was a week ago. Before that post it was days since the previous post, and so far this year I've only blogged a total of 4 times {plus this entry of course}. It's like I'm consistently getting worse at blogging ... whoops. I apologize.

I have about 6 or 7 entries just waiting to be published, but are still sitting in drafts on my computer and are waiting for me to get to. I know what you're thinking, and I'm working on it so don't you worry, just continue to check back with me every once in awhile ... and hey, if I need a good yelling at ... just tell me 'ICA YOU NEED TO BLOG!' and maybe I'll be blogging more frequently.

Also, In the last few weeks I've had a roller coaster of a journey mostly outside of photography, taking care of life, the ones I love and trying to manage every curve ball God continues to throw my way. It's been crazy, to say the least ... but I'm still here standing.

So if I haven't been here ... where have I been?

Good question.

A large considerable amount of my time has been spent wedding planning, wedding shopping, wedding crafting or wedding ideating with my big sister, her fiance, and mi madre. Alot of it has been stress free, spur of the moment outings that lead us to the perfect solutions and it's been awesome. These next 7 months are going to fly by!

Another huge part of my time has been spent with zee boyfriend. Already we've gone on countless {amazing} dates this year, and 9 times out of 10 if we're together we're probably playing ninja. Haha.

I've also spent alot of time cuddling with my cousins' new puppies Mac & Daisie. They are the best! And the sweetest! And I love them! Even though they pee everywhere. Hahah.

A few weekends back I jumped on a bus to NYC and spend a day with my brother, doing his headshots, eating the best food, and talked up a storm as we walked around Central Park.

And yes, he'll get his own post soon so just be on the look out. I miss him dearly and I'm so proud of him!

Most of this current week I've spent designing my dear friend's debut album, Hope Leigh: Hey mom, look what I can do! {Maybe you'll remember her from here.} Her album has become a labor of love for the two of us, and I could not be more proud of it. Her music and original songs are just amazing, and it was definitely a blessing to have my images be used as part of her CD, but more importantly it was an honor to be the one she trusted in designing it. I haven't put into practice much of my graphic design knowledge, it was nice finally be designing again. I definitely miss the design process {as tedious as it may be}, graphic design school oh how I miss you!

Outside of all these things, the rest of my time has been spent growing and learning, spending time with my best friends, celebrating with them and praying them through the tough times, planning out what I want for this year with photography, bonding with mi familia and seeking out the Lord.

I can't believe February is just around the corner and though I haven't been too consistent in blogging this month, {via Statcounter} I do know that you all continue to check up on me. So from the bottom of my heart thank you, and I will try my best to be better at updating. Thanks for always sticking around!!!

Lastly let me leave you with some words to encourage you, because you all have been just that to me.
"We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed." 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

Happy Weekend to You!!!
