Hi babes! So let me just start off by saying sorry for the unannounced absence. Literally the last 6 weeks have been a whirlwind – but I am happy to report we have been back with Joel for the last few weeks and have been soaking up all of our time as a family (in between his busy work schedule that is).
I have to be honest and say I was in a creative slump this last little while. I was in such a funny space with where to go with my blog and even deciding whether or not I should continue using this space to be creative. As much as I have absolutely loved blogging these last two and a half years, I was starting to feel I was not able to fully keep up with it all – emails, photoshoots etc. plus being a mama and tending two littles! This constant pressure of feeling like I was falling behind escalated when Joel left for 11 weeks and I was a single mama. I was flailing a bit, and was always feeling so stressed.
This space for me has always been a creative outlet – something to share my passions with all of you! I thought long and hard about whether or not to keep going with it, and decided that I enjoy what I do, and I just needed that timeout for myself. I can’t wait to get back to what doing what I love again with my heart in the right place! Summer is always a hard season for us with Joel’s job. We often are either apart, or moved away from our home and this summer has been our hardest yet – we still have another month to go! I am feeling much more like myself these days though, which is why I am finally back with a fresh perspective! I appreciate all of your patience, and for letting me take a little bit of a break to just be with my family and figure some stuff out. You guys are the best!
I would like to hear any feedback you guys have on what you’d like to see more of on here. I am excited for a fresh start and would love to know what kinds of posts you guys would like to see coming up, whether it’s more beauty, decor/home tips, any mama tips etc.! Leave a comment on this post, or on my latest Instagram post.
Thanks for stopping by!
