a break from blogging?


Life is always busy, I guess. But lately, it feels like it's been a lot busier. In a good way...and in a bad way. From the moment I wake up in the morning, there is a pile of things on my to-do list, and if I don't get to them by the time I head to bed, my heart flutters a bit, and I wonder if I'll manage to make it through this summer successfully.

I'm still making time for the things I love...crochet projects, cooking, reading, exercise, and quality time with all my special girls. But I'm also studying for the most anxiety-producing exams I've ever taken. So when I make the time for the wonderful stuff of life, the last thing I'm thinking about is photos and blog posts and documentation. That is the blessing of being busy, I guess. In the best moments, I feel so much more present.

Blogging has sort of faded from my mind. And when it does pop up, it's more of a chore, more of an obligation to the internet friends I love so much. And that's not what I ever wanted it to be.

So I just wanted to put a little message out there...I'm here, I'm living, I'm happy. But you might not see much of it around these parts. Maybe you'll see me back at my regular thing in a month. Maybe I'll take off for longer. And maybe I'll be back next week, unable to ignore the call of the blog-o-sphere. The point is, I might not be around much for awhile, and I think I'm ok with that.

But I'll be following along with you. I might not comment much, because, again, I don't want it to be a chore. I want to read your blogs and just enjoy them. So I'll do that. And I'll still be around on twitter and instagram.

And aside from that, if you're wondering what I'm up to, you can bet I'll be studying in coffee shops, tapping on my laptop in the library, escaping into my kitchen, and binging on Orange is the New Black (check it out).
