I know I have been MIA the last two months. I need to come clean with what I have been doing and feeling so here it goes…. I was starting to hate blogging. I had to make a difficult decision when my classes, student teaching, and two jobs got a little overwhelming. When I started this blog it was a hobby, a way to keep the family in the loop, and a way for me to find my inner self and enjoy writing. I started getting sponsored posts and taking ads, which I loved until it started feeling like I was obligated to blog because I had something to prove. I had goals and my goals started to interrupt my marriage just because I wanted to prove that I could be the best. I was bending over backwards and cutting into my personal time of enjoying life’s little moments.
These last two months have really opened my eyes. I have been able to reconnect with my hubby, create a bucket list for the summer with the hubby (which will be shared soon), and connect with family. These last two months have also shown that my priorities are the Lord and my family, especially the hubby. Without these two important pieces of my life, I wouldn’t be able to write the blog or enjoy life.
I guess what I am trying to say is… I’m back. There are going to be some major changes. For starters, social media is not a priority for me. I’m not going to bend over backwards to try and make daily announcements and pictures. I love Instagram and will get back to making this my number one source of connections. It will not be used to really advertise my blog, but instead show you my life’s enjoyable little moments.
Next, sponsored posts will not be found regularly anymore. You will be lucky to see one once every other month. I want to be myself and regain my love for blogging. I plan to get back to my roots and start enjoying writing again on this little space of the web.
Lastly, you will for sure see me around the web once a week. I cannot promise three times a week like I used to. I want to blog when the Lord is calling me to write. I want to write about memories and adventures of my marriage, recipes when I actually get around to cooking, and the simple moments that come about. I hope you are here for the long haul and will walk with me through the little moments of life that bring me joy. So, will you be sticking around?
