Oh, hi

Well, I’m back. I hadn’t even realized it had been two months since I last blogged until I sat down to write this post. Where has the time gone? Where has Spring gone for that matter! It’s June already?? What’s that…I’m going to be 33 next month…whhhaaaat?! Sigh. It all goes too damn fast, doesn’t it? Anyway, I have many reasons as to why I haven’t blogged recently but the biggest reason…I was feeling creatively tapped out. Does that ever happen to you? The well was dry as they say. And who wants to read a blog written by a dry well. I kept trying to push myself through it, forcing myself to sit down each day and blog but in turn it was starting to feel like a job and not a creative outlet- which is not why I do this. I do this to connect with others and stay present in my day-to-day life as well as motivate myself to make my dreams a reality. So I decided to do the unimaginable for me after almost four solid years of blogging…take a break.

I took some breathing space to fill up the creative well.

Last week I began to feel the pull again though and found myself once again sitting at my desk with my trusty computer. Ideas and new energy swirling within me.

So happy to be back.

Here are a few snapshots over the last two months…

    Great photos, but what’s with that one photo of Frank. He looks like like he’s giving everyone the evil eye!

    So glad you’re back! I was just thinking of emailing you to say hello and see where you’d been since the blog was so quiet. Sometimes a break is super important to recharge.

      Awe, thank you!! That is so sweet to hear that you were going to reach out and check on me!

      Sometimes a break is exactly what you need. So happy to be back. More pictures of Shane please!! 🙂

    You were definitely missed!

    Glad you’re back. I know the feeling about “tapped out”. My 365-day project mirrors your blog of three years back, and some days are just not that full. Keep at it, with lots of Smilin’ Frank!

      Thanks for the warm welcome back! I commend you for tackling a 365-day project. It’s no joke trying to come up with content every single day! You’re right…some days just aren’t that full. I can’t wait to catch up on your blog now that I’m back to blogging land:)

    Glad to see you back, Kate! I totally get the blog hiatus thing. It’s best not to force it–that would just take the joy out of the process! xx

    Yay! You’re back! I missed reading your posts 🙂 As always, love the photos of Frank. So adorable. Also, you lead such a beautiful life. You just seem so optimistic and positive – it’s something I admire about you. I can’t wait to see what else is to come this year!

    Glad you’re back!!! And we missed Frank!

    YAY I’m so glad you’re back!! I took a blogging break earlier this year and it was so reenergizing and necessary. Glad you’re feeling inspired again – I love the dry well analogy! Woot!
