7 Years of Blogging

Hello lovely readers! Today is my blog's 7th blogiversary! I made a banana blueberry chocolate cake to celebrate. It was my first time using my bundt pan, and the cake came out super moist.

I figure that my blogiversary is a perfect time to give you a little life update. In last year's blogiversary post, I mentioned that I was taking a break from YouTube. I actually started posting videos again since October 2018. I definitely needed a break, but I'm happy to be making videos again. You can check out my channel here if you're interested.

2019 has been really exciting so far. Simon and I finally got around to getting our passports, and we have a trip to Cuba coming up in the spring! It will be my first time on a plane, and my first time leaving the country. I've been doing a lot of shopping for my trip, including some fun swimsuits and a really flashy suitcase (I want to be able to find it quickly at the airport). I will be doing a trip haul on my YouTube channel soon!

I also purchased a driver's handbook so I can begin the process of getting my driver's licence. I never bothered with it before because it's not really necessary to own a car the city I live in. I get around just fine with public transportation. To be honest, as a child I use to have nightmares of being in a car alone, and the car suddenly starting by itself... and I would wake up panicked! Some of my friends have been bugging me about getting my license for a long time, "just in case" I would need it. Simon has his full licence, but we don't have a car yet since it's bad for the environment, and gas and parking are super expensive. I thought about it a lot and it's true that it would be good to have my licence. You never know. I'm going to at least give it a try! I'm still planning on taking public transportation even if we do get a car in the future, since I'm cheap ;)

As far as my blog goes, I'm hoping to continue posting FOREVER!! Haha, we'll see. I'm still enjoying it for the time being :) I will have a post with photos from my trip, so keep an eye out for that.

Here's to 7 years!! Thanks for reading! xo
