Hello all my lovely readers! I’m back! It has been quite some time since I have written but I just wanted to let you know I am still alive! I’m going to give you a quick catch-up session on my life, then tell you what sort of fun plans I have coming to the blog soon!
So Abbie, what has been happening?! Well, a lot. 2018 has been and will continue to be a crazy year for me. The beginning of the year has brought some traveling, but lots of working. I work at an amazing jewelry store and absolutely love my job, but I work often. To be honest, I haven’t had too much motivation to do anything once I get off. My job takes a lot of my mental and social capabilities, so I usually want to come home and be alone-ish. Most of my off-days have been spent spending time with the one I love and lots of adulting. Speaking of adulting, don’t get older it’s the actual worst.
I see a lot of other bloggers who have full time jobs, workout every day, go out with their husbands/best friends every day, and manage a successful blog all at the same time. I applaud their capabilities, but not all of us have that figured out nor the desire. I also felt the need to revive my creative juices. I hate putting out the same content, and I have been starting to really re-think different aspects of my blog. I’m not going to go into too much detail, but changes are coming. I hope that by being real with you, you can understand my absence and also stick around for more of the fun (…even if I am m.i.a. for awhile). My dear friend Emma, who runs a fabulous blog that you should check out here put it this way:
“Real life happens whether you’re consistent on here or not. I’ve been choosing to live fully in Real Life…. I can’t give real life the attention it deserves if I’m always worried about <my blog>. Never apologize for unplugging.”
I just love that! I also love her! Go check out her blog, because it’s amazing! Anyways, all that to say I am back after a much needed break!
So Abbie, what is going on in the future? Again, a lot. 2018 is a year of lots of events! In 4 days Jackson and I are celebrating our 4 YEAR anniversary! It’s so crazy to think about! We are taking a nice long weekend trip up to Asheville, NC to celebrate! Yes, we are going to the Biltmore and yes, I am SO EXCITED! There will definitely be some posts from that! This summer will be some trips to Louisiana, Ohio, North Carolina, possibly Texas, and more, I’m sure. We are going to be moving at the end of May because our lease is up, so who knows where we will end up then. So much going on, but all good things. As I mentioned above, I do plan on making a few changes to the blog. So much is in the horizon; it’s going to be wonderful.
I think that is all you need to know for now. I will have a new blog post going live this week and another ready for next week, so stay tuned! Remember to always collect moments, not things. Also, take my advice and unplug for awhile. You will thank yourself for it later. Finally, thank you for all of your support, as a reader! You have no idea how much I appreciate it!
