Seasonal Vibes {Spring 2018} + A New Video!

June 11, 2018

I mean it’s still technically spring right?! I realized after I got back from our honeymoon that I completely forgot to post a spring seasonal vibes post. I’ve decided there’s such thing as “wedding brain” since I’ve been forgetting things left, right and center.

Volume 3 of seasonal vibes is back with my Spring 2018 update! Here's what's been happening in my life lately including getting married, teaching yoga and why I quit youtube...

Alas, now that we’re married (!!!) I feel like I have full brain capacity back and have finally been able to sit down and have a look at what the next couple of months have to bring. I also took it as an opportunity to reflect back on the last couple of months. Understandably most have been occupied by wedding planning and yoga teacher training but I still wanted to stop in and have a good ole’ chat with you. I really do love these posts! Let’s jump in…

1. The Wedding

Obviously this is a big one! I gave a bit of a synopsis on the podcast last week, but in case you didn’t hear it, yes it was fabulous! We had such an incredible weekend full of love and support. AND I’m also really happy it’s over! It was definitely worth it, but the last few months have been super stressful (your girl got shingles, ya know!?) so I am honestly just relieved it’s done.

I asked you guys in the the THM Tribe what you wanted to hear about the wedding, and I got lots of feedback on knowing details, how I prepped/planned and final thoughts. Pending pictures, I’ll be dedicating Fridays over the next few weeks to sharing all of these thoughts and details so stay tuned for that! Also, I LOVE being married. It’s wonderful!

2. The Honeymoon

We’ve been referring to it as a “mini-moon” for a while but honestly, it felt more like a honeymoon. And to be fair, a lot of people go to Napa and Sonoma for their honeymoons! We just didn’t consider it that since we drove an hour from our home, but TBH we totally treated it like one. We’re not ones to totally ball out on vacation, but we totally balled out this time. No massage, pool, hot tub, shop, cookie, wine bottle was left untouched. It was glorious! And yes, I plan to share the details of our trip. Stay tuned!

As for our “real” honeymoon, our initial plan was to do New Zealand next winter. We still very much want to go, but after spending the last year of our lives planning, it feels better to just be living in the moment. The idea of planning a trip on the other side of the world has very little appeal to me at the moment. That may change, but for now it just feels right to let it be.

3. Teaching Yoga

As you know I completed my yoga teacher training last month and am planning to begin teaching very soon! I tabled it until after the wedding but now it’s here and I am SO excited for some of the upcoming events we have planned. For now it will be local Bay Area events but am hoping to take this show on the road later in the year. We also have something BIG in the works and I cannot wait to share it with you!!! Spoiler alert: Tanya actually alluded to it in this post.

4. Travel

You guys know we love to travel but as I mentioned above, living in the moment and not planning too far ahead feels better right now. That being said we do have a few upcoming trips. I’ll be in Toronto later this week for a wedding and am so excited to be back in my hometown! It’s a quick trip but I plan to be back later in the summer as part of a bigger East Coast trip. C and I are also going to Idaho next month to do a little exploring! It’s been on our bucket list so really excited about that trip.

5. Videos

You may have noticed that videos have been on hiatus from YouTube the last few months. It was a mixture of a lot of things, but mostly just feelings of overwhelm and needing to let some things go. That being said, I love filming and editing videos and have missed it so I’m so happy to be back with a new video. I don’t know if I’m going to have a video schedule or how consistent I’ll be, but I’ve decided that none of that matters. Showing up with intention is better than showing up out of obligation. More on this in my latest video…

 

I think that’s it for now! As you can see life has been a lot of big events and lots of highs. I’m excited for it to get back to normal and appreciate more of those everyday moments. The big ones are special, but the ordinary ones can be too. So far so good 🙂

    Ahhhhh, this is all SUCH exciting stuff, Davida! I’m a sucker for all things love, so I’m especially stoked about your marriage. 🙂 Life over this way is pretty exciting as I prepare for a cross-county move with my boyfriend next month! We’re moving from D.C. to the L.A. area and I am SO excited for some California sunshine and hopping back into my fav creative outlets. I also hope to attend one of your workshops! Big things poppin’ all around. Trying to stay in the moment and live it up! – Kaitlyn | http://www.poweredbysass.com

    Ahh congrats beautiful lady on being married!! I am SO beyond happy for you, even back in your OG blogging days, it was SO evident how strong of a connection you and C had. So happy to see YOU SO HAPPY 🙂 Okay I’ll stop gushing. also very pumped to see you back on the videos, I think I told you you’re like the only YouTuber I subscribe to lol
    New Zealand and Austrailia are on my bucket list (funny I envision Australia being where I honeymoon one day) but you’re so right, MAJOR trip to plan. Love that you’re just enjoying LIVING life right now, you do you girl!

    And currently in my life I just moved to BOSTON! Not sure if it’s extraordinary but it’s a city close to my heart and moving here on my own has come with more struggles than I care to admit (I’m sure you can relate?) but overall, I try to focus on the good days 🙂

    I’ve been engaged over 2 years now. We took some time to travel so wedding planning hadn’t happened and then my initial destination wedding plans fell through. I just want to get it over with so I know how you feel. Also we have cut it down to basically an elopement now and then a bigger party in our current hometown afterwards which sounds a lot less stressful and less $$ to me.
    So I understand you want a break from planning your honeymoon to New Zealand, but just want to suggest to check out my travel page on my blog (www.bridgesthroughlife.com). My fiancé and I traveled in New Zealand for a total of 3 weeks last January. We rented a campervan and spent 2 weeks traveling around the south island, not even planning our stops beforehand. We planned on the road. I would highly suggest Rotorua on the North Island for mud baths and all the amazing geothermal activity. Seriously every hotel/motel place you stay probably has a hot tub. We had our own private hot tub which was amazing. Also the Hobbiton tour was a must and this is coming from a Harry Potter fan who hasn’t seen Lord of the Rings movies except the first (still working on that). We took a bus from Auckland to Hobbiton and a glow worm cave and then we had the option to get off in Rotorua and stay there so it was perfect as a way to get there without renting a car. We then rented a car to get around Rotorua. To wrap it up, New Zealand is incredible and I hope you do get a chance to go there and definitely in US winter since it’s their summer.
