Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching and this post has been burning a hole in my mind for the past couple of days. I wanted to wait until February 14th to publish this post but I'm too excited. Most of you know that I took a few days off to revamp the blog, change the url and create a new logo. What a lot of you don't know about are the things that have been taking place outside of the blog. I truly debated about sharing this with you but I am at a place where I feel that it is okay to do so. 


Without dragging this out any longer: the one thing that I stopped looking for has found its way into my life. I swore off dating and promised myself that I would strictly focus on accomplishing my goals and becoming a better woman. 2015 was a year that I specifically planned to be my 'selfish' year. Right when I least expected it, in walks someone new. I tried to find every reason why I shouldn't move forward with anyone because, after all, I was the one who put up a "closed" sign on my heart. I wouldn't say that I came into 2015 with the mindset that a relationship couldn't happen but I wasn't necessarily looking for anything of that nature to occur.

I've been busy taking my time to enjoy the introductory phase that I'm in with this new person and I am content with allowing things to happen naturally. I'd be lying if I said that he doesn't add to the happiness that is already a part of my life. The best part of it all is that he values communication just as much as I do. Up until this point, I've been unable to connect with someone who understands how important communication is to me so I'm in a blissful space because of this factor.

I'm not sure where time will take us but I'm uninterested in looking too far ahead. Right now I want to strictly focus on embracing the way we currently feel about each other. It's pretty amazing and I can't stop smiling.
