Reflecting 2017

And just like that, 2017 has come to an end (cue the tears). As I think to myself, and look back on the good, the bad, and the ugly, I must say this year was one to remember. Reflecting on the amazing moments, the heartaches, the loss, new memories made, what 2017 is going to bring 2018, I really don’t know how I truly feel about this year. I can’t say it was the worse year.

What I can say about 2017, is that I am thankful, grateful, blessed for all the opportunities that have come my way, for being able to live through another year.

I usually don’t make resolutions – not because I can never keep them, but because everything that happens in life happens for a reason, whether explained or not. These are either blessings or lessons. What I do like to do each year is just try to be a better me the following year, and to continue to do good in this world. I’ll be the first to say, I’m not a perfect person (but who is, am I right?) I’m far from it. I have many flaws, countless flaws, I make mistakes, but I also make good choices. And I think that’s ok.

This year, George and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. I still cannot believe that it has been over a year that we’ve been married. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun.

I got to travel to new places and revisit some old ones.

We lost our baby Kujo this year, which was probably the most difficult thing that has happened in my life. I miss him terribly. George and I were not prepared for 2017 to be the last year with him.

I celebrated one year of being my own boss. That’s kind of cool.

And the most amazing thing happened to George and I. We found out that we would be parents in 2018. That’s really really cool! We still cannot believe it and are beyond excited about the news. More baby stuff to come soon.

Lastly, I’d like to thank all my readers and internet friends for the continuous support of MelRodStyle. You guys are truly the best fam a gal can ever ask for. Thank you for supporting my blog and social media outlets. Thank you for following my journey, and I hope you continue to stay along for the ride, because 2018 is going to be a wild one!

Cheers and Happy New Year! 2018 is going to be LIT!!!

Another birthday, another year older, but wiser – I suppose.¬†ūüėČ

I celebrated my birthday over the weekend, and I had an amazing time. I always get so excited to celebrate my birthday. If you follow me on snapchat (melrod1206) and instagram (@melrodstyle), you saw that I spent my birthday with my fianc√© and close friends. ¬†We took a boat ride in Long Beach. We drank wine, ate, laughed, danced, shared stories… I can go on. I had such a blast!

I’m so thankful to have them in my life. I may only have a few friends but they are the best kind of friends. Wouldn’t trade them for the world.

This past weekend made me recognize a lot of things. I realized how blessed I am to¬†have such amazing people in my life. My fianc√© for one, is beyond incredible. Always going above and beyond for me. I’m truly a lucky gal to have him. My close friends I can call family, who are truly special and irreplaceable.

I’m always so grateful but this weekend really made me stop and appreciate it. Sometimes you get so caught up on¬†things that aren’t so important¬†and forget¬†what really matters in life, and for me that’s my family and friends.

Cheers to another year older and wiser.

Over the weekend, I celebrated my birthday with my close friends and family. I had an amazing time.

I wanted to get dolled up for my birthday even if I wasn’t planning to do anything extravagant.¬†This sequin skirt was perfect, along with my DIY birthday crown from last year. I’m pretty obsessed over this Windsor skirt. It’s fun, festive and makes for a great Holiday outfit. Thinking this may just be an outfit option to ring in the New Year. What do you think?
