I never thought I'd stop writing, but I did. It became easy to push my feelings aside, save the pictures to my computer, and hope that when I looked at them in the weeks or months to come, that I'd remember exactly how I felt and be able to write about the experiences, travels, and events that happened in my life exactly as they had occurred. It just doesn't work that way though, and I've realized that I missed writing, I missed documenting these important days of my life, my life with my boyfriend Salvatore, my family, myself. Thankfully, after collaborating with my friend Ardiana, at Paper Love Stationary, we were able to come up with designs and hopes for a new blog, a fresh start.
That's when Twelve17. Love Notes & Travels was born. Twelve17 - the date Salvatore asked me to be his girlfriend (almost 6 years ago). Love Notes & Travels - our life in a nutshell. This is where I hope to share the raw and the beautiful events that occur in my life, whether it's traveling to different states and countries with Sal, holidays with the family, or heart-wrenching stories from work. I want to be able to look back on this blog and read all about my life, my thoughts, and my feelings. I don't ever want to forget a moment, and why should I? It's life and it's real, and it's happening right now. Small moments can turn into big memories, and I want to be able to remember it all.
