Hello everyone! It is officially November 1st which means (at least in my opinion) that the holiday season is here! The holidays are seriously my favorite time of year. I spend the other 10 months of the year looking forward to November and December, and I have to admit that I sometimes play my Christmas playlists all throughout the year if I need cheering up. One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is picking out gifts for everyone. I love picking out items that will make each recipient feel happy and special. Ever since starting my store, Wildflower Studios, this summer, I’ve been so excited about creating a Christmas collection for you all!

Happy new year! It seems like just last week I was writing 2012 at the top of my school books! I can not believe that I’m going to turn 17 this year and that we’re one year away from my high school graduation! I feel like I say this every year, but this year more than ever this phrase is very applicable: it has been a BIG year. I feel as though I’ve gone through one of the toughest years of my life, but I’ve definitely learned a lot. The biggest lesson of all was learning about myself as I grow older and becoming more independent.


It was a dream of mine to start a blog for a really long time, and more than that I just wanted to help other expats who were going through the same thing I had just experienced. But it took a lot of courage to start this blog and share my writing with others because I was scared of what other people would say and of their reactions to my writing. But I am so happy that I decided to share my experiences on this blog, and your positive responses, messages, and comments have really made it all worth it.
