I've been agonizing over the decision to take a break from blogging or to delete this site altogether for over a year now. Between currently trying to piece our life back together in our new place after our long move from New York to the West on top of full time commitments, my mind is so scrambled I'm in dire need of a sabbatical to reboot and recharge my creative thoughts. As bittersweet as it is, I hate not being able to keep a consistent posting schedule, which also has become mentally exhausting/upsetting, as I spend restless nights thinking about content that I didn't have time to post, after hours being spent into putting them together.
When I started blogging back in 2010, I loved having an outlet to keep my creative juices flowing, a place and space to use as an inspiration board to keep inspired, share tips, and connect with like-minded creatives. Spending hours taking photos, choosing which photos were worth sharing, editing them (when necessary), and writing till the wee hours of the morning never felt like a burden. In fact, I have loved every minute of creating a beautiful site to share things I love and an extension of expressing my own style aesthetic. It's definitely been a way of relaxing and keeping me in a happy place. Suffice to say, writing posts was something I constantly looked forward to. Up until recently, I realize I've been spending more time thinking about how behind on my posts I am and more time feeling frustratingly sad, rather than concentrating on a whole other world of responsibilities outside this tiny online space. So it's so long, for now. It's with a very heavy heart that I'm even writing this post since this online space has for years helped me cope with many difficult moments in my life, as it's always been a means that helped keep me in a bubble by focusing only on the beautiful things and experiences in life. I already miss being on here, but a girl has to do what a girl has to do for the sake of keeping sane. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to getting our life back by putting together a beautiful space for us to call home again.
That said, don't go abandoning me just yet. Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram and Twitter, as I will continue to share some #instagoodphotos there.
Until next time. Wish you all the coziest of fall and warmest winter!
P.S. Some fall items that I'm currently swooning over:
