This past year has been an interesting one, super awesome for the most part, like getting featured on Apartment Therapy and styling for an Elle shoot. And then, there was the breakup.

My heartmate and I broke up seven months ago which explains why I haven't tossed that word around and the lack of Bea appearances. We were together for ten years but we grew very far apart towards the end. It was a mutual breakup, so it wasn't terrible. It was bittersweet. I was scared and anxious and excited to be on my own. All those feelings made me feel more alive than ever. Now that I'm fully moved into my new nest, it's absolutely liberating.

Anyway, it's the holidays and I know it can be either really heartwarming or empty-hearted feeling. To those who recently broken up with your heartmates, it's okay, it'll get better. It already has. Let's rise up with fists and flowers! To new beginnings! :D
