I’ve missed my blog a lot lately! The last few months have been a roller coaster. Some of you know I (and Mat) was going through a theology class, so that was very time consuming, then the holidays, then blablabla… 

Anyway, I’m back at it now, so thank you so much to all of you patient, beautiful people for still being here! :) I’m so thankful to have this outlet of expression and inspiration! Here are some pictures I’ve been taking lately, follow me on Instagram (@thecolorsofana) for more!

The Verrazano bridge in New York during the holidays 
I love jelly fish! These were so cool at the aquarium a few weeks ago :)  

Been playing around with this camera lately! Mat’s aunt gave it to me, brand “new” from back in the day!  

Wearing my Miss Patina button down and playing with tiny dried flowers    

I love how the sun enters our home! Such great light!  

New bad boys!  

Just being comfy and trying to stop being so scared of taking selfies :) 

Anxiety AnaΒ

You guys, last week was CRAZY. I got tattooed, then I got crazy weird anxiety, then my poor Mat got a virus, and then I just wanted to relax. So I did :)

Anxiety is a horrible monster. I’ve mentioned here before that I’ve dealt with stress in the past. And I don’t mean stress as in “I’m so stressed out today” but rather like “I’m so stressed out that my hair is falling off and I’ve stopped eating” kind of stress. Nightmar-ish! Seriously, don’t do that to yourselves. Ever.

And so it was no surprise to see that this past week I was having respiratory issues thanks to anxiety. Moving to Texas has been pretty shocking. I know this is where we should be for now but that doesn’t mean life will always be perfect just because you know you belong somewhere. 

So what helped against that anxiety, you ask? Realizing that I’m fine and that life is not perfect but it’s still really, really good. I am loved, I am accepted and I might not have everything I want or how I want it but I have everything I need and how I need it. God is good, you guys. 

I hope you have a fun Labor Day! Remember to relax and take things easy :) 


I did it people! I went and got myself on Instagram. Find me as @thecolorsofana for sneak peeks and bits of my life :)

Also, I do have a “nails of the week” type of post but I’ll be posting it tomorrow instead of today because one of them got ruined (I wasn’t patient enough so it didn’t dry properly)!
