No. 67: it’s chayli’s 2018

hello friends! happy 2019!

i know i’ve been off of Short + Sweet for a long time and i apologize. if i’m being totally real with you, i’ve lost motivation and inspiration for all of it. it reminded of what didn’t happen…and sadly what did. 2018 was a ridiculous year for me, but it was the year i found myself. i found who i am. here’s a little 2018 recap:

march 11-16: first mission trip in jackson, mississippi

april 12: parents’s divorce became final

late april: “i am” really started taking off

may 5-10: went to indiana to be with my aunt, on the 8th she passed away, and on the 10th was her funeral

(may 5th & 6th we’re also the days that i was supposed to have an entire art event dedicated to “i am” and obviously did not happen. i wouldn’t have missed being with my aunt for the world, but it was a hard loss for me too)

so there you have it. a year of extreme ups and downs that i’ve never known. thank you for being apart of it with me ☺️

i will post here and there on Short & Sweet. knowing me, i’ll probably get this huge spark of inspiration and then you’ll be overloaded with 14 new posts. however, i’ve been really enjoying videography and youtube, so if you wanna come with me over there, i would love that 🙂

love you guys, thanks so much for being here still.
