I hate blogger apologies. I know all blog readers do. But I can’t help it – I’ve been away for a week and I need to explain myself!
Sometimes life goes smoothly. Everything finds time to get done, every assignment gets handed in on time, the dishes are (mostly) clean.
Sometimes life goes better than smoothly! Life hands you challenges and you accept them! The animals get fed and walked, the blog gets updated, dinner gets cooked, and it’s actually good! Do all the things!
But there’s always a tipping point, right? The laundry starts piling up, and that is when life hands you news. And, in the moment, it doesn’t matter if it’s good or bad. That’s the point when it’s just too much.
So. In summary, I got some news and kind of crumbled under the pressure. It’s good news, I promise. I’m very lucky and very happy, but it’s going to mean a lot of big life changes for me and everyone around me. To save my sanity, something had to give, so I decided to let the blog take a little blog-cation and try not to feel guilty about it.
Now I’m back, I’m sane, I have a super supportive boyfriend and family who are truly the best. You all know I strive to keep it real around these parts so I share things like this in hopes that someone else can relate.
Here are some snaps from the past few weeks:
Pink toenails and some street art (literally), M’s uncle’s dog that I took care of during my “do all the things” week, some palm trees.
Can’t have a dog pic without a cat pic – Scout sleeping in with me. Yesterday Marc and I went to Santa Monica and ate gelato.
Saturday we went to the beach with some friends. I’m weirdly proud of my flip flop tan lines – it’s the only place on my body I actually tan instead of burn! Here I am looking forward to the future (in my Tumbleweeds shades)!
So, welcome back everyone, thanks for bearing with me, I love you all!
