Hello lovelies!!
How are you all doing today?
Hopefully your day is going well :)

I need some help from my fellow bloggers.
Apparently I have used up all of my storage space for photos for the year. Has that ever happened to any of you?
I started my blog after Christmas last year, so my year will be renewing in a few weeks.
What do you guys do? Do you pay for the extra storage space?
I didn't know this could happen! Haha
If you dolls could let me know what you think, that would help so much.
I have so many posts I want to publish, but I can't without photos!

I'd appreciate any advice :)
Talk to you soon!

Productive– I really feel refreshed since being home.
Also happy to be blogging again :)

Actually, I don't even hate admitting it. IT'S PHENOMENAL.

Hi loves!
My life has been absolutely crazy the past few weeks.
My time in Spain went so incredibly fast, I blinked my eyes and I was home.
I'm really hoping to get back into my routine of writing a few posts a week and get back into hauling, reviewing and posting tutorials.
Here's a super quick run down of what happened since my last blog post.

After Ireland we headed to Paris for 5 days.
It was incredible. I loved it so much more the second time around.
I went with my three amazing friends– we got a (phenomenal) hostel, toured the city by day, napped, ate crepes, bought dinner at the grocery store, got ready and took on the city all night.
I worked out so well and I was unbelievably happy with our trip.

After that we went to Barcelona for Jen's 21st, Halloween and Dia de Todos los Santos, and to meet up with Jen's dad.
We didn't do as much sightseeing in Barcelona, but just enjoyed the beautiful weather and walked around on our own.
It was definitely a good trip even though it was a bit shorter than our others.

After that we enjoyed our last few weeks in Alicante going to our favorite restaurants, stores, bars and discos.
I literally cannot believe how fast the time went.
In the beginning I was so nervous and uncomfortable I couldn't wait until I got to fly home. Something clicked and Alicante truly became my home. 
I looked forward to telling my host family about my trips and couldn't wait to get back to my host mom's cooking.
I looked forward to seeing the new shoes in the stores on my street I had to walk up every day.
I loved seeing everything in Spanish.
I loved getting to nap after lunch.
Above all else, I loved my friends I got to share this experience with. I honestly couldn't have asked for it to be any better.
Seeing the way other countries lived truly opened my eyes.
Sitting in Madrid, I couldn't believe that I actually didn't want to come home. Once I arrived in Chicago, my feelings changed.
I was overjoyed to be reunited with my family, my friends, my car, my dog... everything.
In order to come home to all of these wonderful things, I had to leave behind my family in Spain, my friends in Spain and everything else that made it home.
Overall, I could not have asked for a better experience.
I feel so fortunate.
Thank you for letting me share it with you all.

I'll talk to you soon :)
