*tap tap*…is this thing on? Anyone still here?
It has been FOUR MONTHS since I last published a blog post. FOUR. MONTHS. Never in my (blogging) life did I ever think that I would take that long of a break. To be honest, this break brought up a lot of thoughts about this whole space that I didn’t anticipate.
This hiatus began unintentionally when my laptop crashed while I was in Florida in March…2 minutes after I hit publish on my last post to be exact. I was bummed for several reasons: lost photos, wasn’t in the market to buy a new laptop, pause on blogging, etc. Even though I felt I had a good blogging rhythm going, I embraced the break. I embraced not feeling like I had to take pictures of everything. I fully embraced not feeling like I had to hop on a computer to write when I got home from work after staring at Excel for the majority of the day.
Instead of freaking out about the whole thing (which I would have normally done), I felt a sense of calmness. I just had a feeling that this break was needed; that it would be good for me. I worked more. I made my friends more of a priority. I slept more. I read more. I went on more dates. I spent more time experimenting in the kitchen. While I missed blogging and it was on my mind a lot, I felt being pulled away from it. And I went with it. And it was amazing.
A ton has changed in the past four months which I am sure will be shared on here at some point. But I am back! I’m not sure what my blogging ‘schedule’ will look like, but I am feeling the pull back to this space. Life’s all about going with the flow, right?
