Oh, hey there.
Yes, it’s me. The girl behind this blog that has been MIA for a week or so now.
Life has been busy lately and since we finally had some nice weather this week, we’ve been taking advantage! And frankly, social media and blogging have just taken a backseat. Not to say I haven’t thought about it on the daily. I love this blog and connecting with you all here and on social media. I also have goals that I’m working to meet…so I’m trying real hard not to beat myself up about taking some time away from it for a week. I enjoy writing and sharing our life and I guess part of me feels that if I take too much time away it will be put on the back-burner permanently–and I DO NOT WANT THAT.
Time away from my phone and computer has been good, though. They are both so consuming and I try to put myself in check with that often. There needs to be a balance of having my phone on me constantly (mainly to capture all those photo worthy moments) but also knowing when to put it down and focus on what’s right in front of me. As sad as it sounds, it really hard for me!
I’ve also been in a bit of a funk. Do you have have those times when you just get down on yourself and feel like you are drowning and failing at everything? Well that has been me lately. I’ll go to bed thinking about all the things I want to accomplish the next day and I’m lucky if ONE of those things happens. I just can’t get it together, but at the same time I’ve kinda been enjoying this new found lack of motivation. Haha. That probably makes zero sense to anyone but me.
But honestly, when I think back on the past week, there are several things I have checked off my to-do list, but SO many more happy times spent with my family. Which to me, justifies all my slackin’. Sometimes you really just have to think about where you’ve directed your time and what is most important. Like, I took my kids to the splash pad instead of finishing laundry and vaccuming–and I personally think that was a great decision.
So all of this babbling to simply say that…I’m baaaack! I have some fun content to share over the next couple of weeks and I appreciate you being here to follow along. Thanks for supporting me on this venture!
