Greetings Internet! Now, I know what you're thinking: "A post from A SOUTHERN SUNSHINE? She's still ALIVE?!" Yes, I am indeed still alive and also breathing quite well, if I might add.

I expected this month to be a great one for this blog, but as well all know, sometimes the things we expect to happen aren't what actually do. Life has this way of changing our sails, and this past month was full of high waves and rough seas. But I am back now, and I am back for good this time. I'm still adjusting to my new life, so I don't know for sure just how many posts will be up each week this next month, but I'm going to try to jump back into my typical Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule as soon as possible.

To ease my way back into blogging, I thought I would fill everyone in on some major events that have happened recently. I figured it was important to keep you all up to date so that you are not only informed, but so that my future posts make sense (because yes, the points that follow will be incorporated into topics of discussion very soon!).

1. I moved into college!
I moved into my dorm way before my other roommates (a whole week ahead of time) so that I could go through Recruitment. Since my half of the room is still under construction, you will have to wait to see pictures - however, I will let you in on my theme... it is Nautical/Lilly Pulitzer based with focuses on the colors pink, navy, and gold!

2. I went through Recruitment... and came out a Gamma Phi Beta!
Fall Recruitment Week was definitely the most stressful yet fun week of my life. I had the absolute best time going through Recruitment and I feel like I came out a more social person afterwards, a great quality that is never bad to improve upon. I am extremely blessed to say that I did receive a bid and was able to run home to my top choice sorority, Gamma Phi Beta! It feels so good to be around a group of women who make me feel comfortable and share the same values as me. I can honestly say that after one week, I already truly feel at home when I am with them. I am really looking forward to a very exciting first semester as a member of this sorority!

3. I just finished my first week of classes.
And let me tell you, it was not an easy week at all due to many unforeseen circumstances... But hey, that's life right? Stay tuned for a post next week all about it.

4. I just celebrated the 6-month anniversary of this blog!
It's crazy to think that I have been blogging for 6 months already - it only feels like I started this blog just last week! I'm really looking to get serious with A Southern Sunshine, which actually brings me to my last point...

5. I'm looking into re-branding this blog before the end of the year.
I'm starting to have more of an idea of the types of posts that I want to be writing and therefore the blog style that I want to show the world. Be prepared for some changes to the website these next few months - big or small, I will keep you updated on them all!

It's great to officially be back in the blogging game, and I can't wait for everyone to see what is in store these next few months. Get strapped in people, it's about to be one wild ride!
