Well, my intentions of being more routine with my blog posts has not been that successful. To say that my life is busy now would be an understatement. We just sold and moved out of our house, loaded everything into a Pod, moved the essentials into my parents, and are anxiously waiting for our house to be built. The goal is this summer so send a lot of good vibes that we stay on schedule.
All of the chaos of moving is just the tip of the iceberg. I am also swamped with meetings, appointments, collaborations, daily responsibilities, and work. It is really hard to fit in a schedule of blog posts, especially when it is not my full-time job.
I really love blogging. It is my way to unwind, to express what I am feeling, and just have a safe place in my little corner of the internet. It is my own. I built it from the ground up into what it is today and have watched it mature and grow over the last three years. It is easy to feel like I need to push out a post or stay on a schedule, especially when I have so many people who have taken the time to give me a follow.
The truth is, though, that your hobby should never feel like an obligation. Lately I have realized that I only want to publish something that I am proud to have written. Something that I am passionate about in my life. I never want to get to the point that I am just pushing out content for the sake of having a post.
We get so caught up in the business of being busy that we think that we have to fit everything on our plates, writing blog posts included! In reality we should be taking a step back, only making time for what really matters in our lives, and, most importantly, making the time to take care of ourselves. I recently wrote a blog post about taking care of ourselves and I encourage you to check it out. It has a lot of great tips on how you can show your self a little love and really allow yourself the change to relax.
I ask that you bare with me over these next few months. I am going to try my hardest to give you all fun, quality content, but I also have a lot going on in my life. My first responsibility will always be to my family, followed by work. Not matter how much I wish this little hobby of mine could be my full-time job, I have not quite gotten to that point yet so it often will get pushed to the end of my to-do list. That is real life. Most importantly though, it is MY real life and I will continue to do whatever I can to make sure that I am always putting forth my best work and effort in all that I do!
Thank you for sticking with me and supporting me these last few years. You all help to make it so much more special and are my reason why!
Now, for something a little lighter, how gorgeous are these booties?! The color, the style, the rich, fragrant leather… I am obsessed! They are from chicest little boot company called BALADIGALA. Each boot from their collection features real leather, hand painted details, studs or crystals. They are all gorgeous and are sure to become a staple in your wardrobe. The timeless design and materials means that you will be able to enjoy them for many years. My pair is called Fika Effortless (c/o) in the burgundy color. They go with almost everything in my wardrobe. I love that the color looks good with both browns and blacks. The bootie style means that I can wear them all year long. Just think how cute they would be with a little floral dress! I encourage you to check out BALADIGALA and snag a pair for yourself!
