New Year, Fresh Start

 First off, Happy New Year! I know it’s been awhile, but I’m back…again! I hope everyone’s 2016 is starting off well. There are so many cliché things I could say, but I really do feel like this year is going to be amazing, not just for me, but for all of you as well! Isn’t the old adage, “speak it into existence?” I am overflowing with positivity and a renewed faith.

I capped off the end of 2015, standing beside my college best friend at her gorgeous Floridian wedding (see pic above of the venue, at sunset). I represented well as her maid of honor, or I made the best attempt (almost forgot her vows in my purse). Lol! It was a great way to bring in the new year, for sure.

With that said, I really do feel like I have a fresh start not just personally, but also with my blog. I have plans to re-vamp and streamline my content. I’m also actually learning to use my fancy Canon camera (finally!), so hopefully there will be less iPhone pictures and more quality ones. This is all a work in progress and I hope you guys stick with me along the way.





The inspiration is back… Ready? Set. GO!

The Notebook.

After many months, I am glad to say my blog-writing hiatus is now over! Ugh. I know, I know…it’s been entirely too long and I have definitely neglected “Lex of Hearts.” Months have gone by and honestly I was second guessing myself, thinking that what I’ve started here wasn’t really “good enough,” which also led me to feel a bit uninspired. I read tons of blogs and they all look so polished, full of great content and photography. However, I’ve also learned in these last few months that this blogging life is real and like most things, this takes practice and time to create something meaningful enough to share with the world.

A few people have asked me about my blog — “Are you still writing?”,What’s your website?”, “Your last post was in January!” Hanging my head in shame (a little), not really wanting to answer because my answers seem so mediocre, ya know? But at this point, I’ve realized that this is a forum to just be me, in a written/visual format. It’s crazy to think that even the few people that do comment and re-tweet my post links value what I create here and this has helped me get back in the swing of things. My confidence is up and I’m ready to give this a-go! So, to my readers, I thank you for sticking around, being loyal and anticipating the greatness that will soon follow (ha!).

P.S. I’ve also changed up the look of my blog. It’s a little more flashy & bold, but still fun. You like?
