My blogging experience so far

It is time for a little celebration. My blog is three months old today and I could not be happier. Lizzyfied is still a puppy in the world of blogs, but I have already learned so much about blogging, writing, and photography. Let’s start with the most important thing. I LOVE my blog. I finally have a creative outlet, where I can curate my thoughts, recipes, photos, and experiences. It is my little space on the internet that has brought me so much joy in the last couple of months that only wish I had started my blog sooner. I can see myself doing this with a lot of passion for years to come. That being said, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing the last few months. There are definitely a few aspects of blogging that I enjoy less. Some aspects I downright despise. So today, I’m sharing all of the highlights and struggles I encountered in my first few months of blogging.

Month in review: September

Whereas August just seemed to absolutely fly by, September seemed to drag on for quite a while. At the beginning of September, I travelled to Spain to attend a wedding of some friends. The area of Andalusia is stunning, and the little trip definitely made for a highlight of the month. On the last day of our trip, my boyfriend and I received the long-awaited news that we would finally be moving into our new apartment.

Review: Hotel Los Castaños (Cartajima, Spain)

Earlier this month I traveled to Spain to attend a friend's wedding in Malaga. To make the trip worth it, my boyfriend and I decided to spend an extra few days in the Andalusian mountains. We wanted to explore the beautiful countryside and include a trip to Ronda, which my parents had recommended to us. When looking for hotels, we were disappointed at the prices of accommodations in Ronda itself. So we decided to look a little further and found this charming little hotel not too far from Ronda. I had no real expectations for this place but was absolutely blown away by its charm, comfort and the friendliness of the owners. I also did not plan to do a review of this hotel. But after my stay there, I was itching to share this little gem with the world.
