Hi friends! Remember me? I'm that blogger that blogged way back in 2016. I took a little time off to enjoy the holidays with my family...and then I fell of the blogging wagon. To an outsider, blogging may be easy, but it is really a time consuming little hobby. Dinner isn't just "cook it and put it on the table" anymore. It's "take a picture of all the ingredients, take a picture of the different steps, take 5 pictures of the finished product on a plate before you decide it looks better on a different plate. Then take 20 more pictures trying to find the perfect light at 7:30 at night while your family complains because they are.ready.to.eat."
You start to analyze everything you read or watch, wondering if you should share it with the world (aka your loyal readers). You use a life changing beauty product and feel it is your duty to shout it from the roof tops (aka Friday Favorites). You take 56 pictures of your children in one day just incase you can only come up with four Friday Favorites...and you really need a 5th. Everything starts to become a blog post idea, and before you know it your brain is over the brim, full of ideas and you stay up until one in the morning jotting down drafts, some of which will never be published. It can be exhausting, and you start to wonder why in the world do I want to do this? Maybe I should have taken up ceramics instead?
After taking a month or so to clear my head, and toying with the idea of blog retirement, I have decided to stick around. I have been blessed with some fantastic friends and family that have encouraged me to continue this
time-comsuming, draining, rewarding little hobby of mine. I may not post as often, but I'm coming back... Soon. Why? Because writing is my thing. Or, at least I want it to be. I hope you'll stick around, too.
