Hi everyone! Whew! Who knew 5 days without blogging could fly by in a flash? I wanted to pop in and say hello and also fill you in with what's going on with me.
I've been in a bit of a blogging rut and it comes down to two main reasons:
1 - Social media is the fastest growing area of my job as a copywriter and communications specialist at the ad agency where I work...this means the more I do during the day - the less I am inclined to turn on the computer after hours! It's been so busy that basically I come home and crash...then I feel guilty for not blogging. I need to accept that blogging is not my full time job (as much as I would love it to be!) and I need to go easier on myself.
2 - I am having some health issues - nothing serious but I've always struggled with my back and lately it's been hard to manage. Hobbies I love like painting furniture and sewing leave me feeling a lot of pain. Stubborn as I am - I continue to do them but the bottom line is...if I don't look after myself first, I won't be able to do anything I love. So I'm having to shift my priorities and put more focus back on taking care of myself. I know I need to spend more time making healthy meals, going on more walks with Gus and increasing my yoga. This means less time for things like blogging and my business. :(
I'm not going to stop blogging, I just may a bit more sporadic at it. I still have wedding photos to share, some lovely submissions of 'The Story Behind' from you lovely readers and some outfits on the camera just waiting to be uploaded. All I'm saying is I might not be around as much.
I will try to juggle it all as I often do...so wish me luck and I'l talk to you soon!!
In the meantime, he's my latest sweet splurge...it's been the year of the coat closet revival so along with my winter sleeping bag parka, I've picked up this gem for that in-between fall coat and frigid -40 weather here in Winnipeg...
It's the perfect mix of chic and bohemian and I love the deep moss colour and refined leather trim! When you zip up the neck it has a real military/mod shape to it. It's from Danier's new collection and it's currently on sale if you're looking!
Talk to you soon friends!
