Hogtied


This picture of Rex does a good job of summarizing life lately... I'm not sure if comparing my life to being hogtied is a good thing - but recently I've thought a lot about how I spend my time.  On good days I feel like I'm giving a good 10% to 35 different things - and as summer ramps up with more travel both personally and for work, I'm afraid my priorities have  screen time taking up less of my day.  While I'll be posting less, I still plan on sharing on twitter/instagram/facebook... taking less outfit photos have translated into more boyfriend/friend time, fun craft projects, and cooking/baking conquests - and my major short-term goal is to start volunteering again (something I really miss). I hope this renewed focus on my tangible life gives me the energy for my social life again.  Thank you so much for the love and support... I promise I'll be back ;)

Go doll & enjoy yourself!! We all need these breaks to clear our heads and spend time living life! Now that it's warmer here and less rainy, I will be spending more time out and away and enjoying. Have a fun time. Your dog is so so precious. xx

Rex cracks me up! Sometimes my rat terrier, Kensington, sleeps like this. So cute.

And good luck with the crazy life juggle, haha. I hear you girl- things are pretty crazy in my area, too. It's like, can I get a break?

Happy Friday!

I hear ya girl! I'm feeling the same way lately and I've been thinking about cutting down my posting to three times a week! It sounds like you've got some great stuff going on so good for you!!! xo

One of the most important parts of blogging is actually going out and experiencing life. I think this is where our real inspiration comes from. These experiences are the key to strong content, evolution of style and creativity, and reader engagement. More power to you for taking some time for this! Wishing you all the best!

Totally understand girl! Summer, especially, is a hard time to focus to typing on a computer instead of being outdoors. I also miss volunteering and have been thinking about getting back into that, but probably not until the fall. This weekend starts the crazy busy summer wedding stuff! Adorable Rexie photo, we need to have a girl date soon!

Aw cute puppy! But totally understandable-I just took a week break in order to focus on my priorities. (Although, I'm still swamped with work so uhh) But you should go volunteer! It's always a great way to give back and sometimes, it helps put one in perspective!
