So this is pretty crazy: exactly a year ago today, on 22nd May 2016, I wrote my very first post on LoveLucyRebecca. It was a post about how I was excited for the new year, having just had my birthday and turned 20 three days prior. Now I’ve just celebrated my 21st birthday, and with it has come the realisation that I’ve been writing on my website for exactly a year, to the day!
My birthday is finally here!
I‘m so excited to officially be 21 and to have made it to an age that is such a milestone. I always thought 21 was such an old age (as in, it sounds pretty old when you’re just a kid/teenager) so it’s pretty crazy to think that I’m now that old myself. I guess when you’re young, a part of you thinks that you’ll be young forever and will never reach the older ages like 21 or above. I was like this, anyway. It’s been such a huge and eventful year for me being 20, so I really I hope I have an amazing year to come and have heaps to look forward to!
I had such a nice time being back in Melbourne, and even though we only went for the usual week I was able to do so much while I was there. If there is one place that I’ll always be excited to keep going back to, it’s Melbourne. I just feel that it’s such an amazing city, there’s so much to do and it always seems to have a really positive and upbeat vibe. Continue reading “Melbourne 2017”
I know I’m not supposed to be thinking about you. I know I’m not supposed to be wondering what your life is like now, who’s in it or what you’re currently going through. I know I’m not supposed to be thinking about everything that happened, or replaying it all in my head. I’m not supposed to be going over all the events that lead up to this temporary end with you. I’m not supposed to be thinking about how it all affected me and in which ways, but the truth is I can’t help any of it. A part of me is full of curiosity.
Standing at a fork in the road, it can be hard to know what path you should walk down as well as what waits for you at the end. This is it: it’s either all of nothing. Now is the time when you have to decide whether you’re in or out, and you don’t have long to make this decision. So what are you supposed to do for the best?
I hope you’re having a great week!
I have been quite busy as of lately and as a result haven’t had much spare time to post much, so I thought it would be fun to share a few things that I’m excited about coming up!
Someone asked me a question the other day, and I found myself unable to give them an answer. This doesn’t happen very often, as even though I’m shy and introverted most of the time I can usually come up with something to say, even in a difficult situation. But this was different. The question they asked me was one that I had never stopped to think about. Believe me, more often than not I’m over-thinking a situation, considering all the aspects, analysing it by nature and finally, coming to a conclusion or answer. But not this time…not about this.
Last week we drove up to Northland and stayed in Coopers Beach: a gorgeous place right next to our last visit to Cable Bay. We drove to different places during the week, stopping by Kerikeri river to visit the Stone store and the Mission House built back in 1822. We also drove to Cable Bay and had a lovely day lying on its golden sand while looking up at the clear blue sky. One place we went back to a few times was Mangonui, a cute town pretty famously known for its yummy fish and chips. Across the road was a cute little café tucked away behind a white picket fence, looking out to stunning views of the ocean just across the road. Overall it was such a lovely holiday and I can’t wait to go back next summer!
How refreshing it is having a new perspective, a new mindset and a new focus. I guess when you think the same way about something for such a long time it becomes all too familiar. I had forgotten how good it felt to re-focus and how exciting and fresh that can be.
