Taking A Breath and A Break


The radio silence of this site these days has been ringing pretty loudly in my ears. A nagging feeling that why I knew I should sit down and really focus on creative content, somehow the list of other life things kept getting in the way. It makes me a little sad, but I'm taking a break from this space. 

About a year and a half ago, I started this teeny tiny slice of the internet as a creative outlet and to chronicle an exciting time in our life. Almost 200 posts later, we have covered everything from moving to renovating to running to so many things in between. I'd like to think I may come back and start again, but who knows what will happen in the future. Right now between balancing family and friends and work and running and life, I know that something had to give. As much as I love this space feeling balanced and present in my life needs to take precedent for now. I'm really happy with the journey of the past year and a half and love where life has me right now. The best way for me to enjoy our current stop on this journey is to take a step back from here and focus on enjoying it!

Major props of all of you out there who 'do it all' and are thriving at it! I'm in awe over you! Also major props to some of you who may be struggling with balance- I'm so impressed at your work ethic! I'm excited to still be an active reader of the blogs I love so much and maybe one day I'll be back as a blogger.

Most of all thanks for those who have taken a bit of time out of their day to stop in and see what was going on over here! It has been a pleasure to share a bit of sass with all of yall! 

Until who knows if/when,
Shay

  3. I get having to take a break. I'm still wondering how those people out there blog full time (with good content) and still work and have a life. Like how?! So sad to see you go tho since I always thought of you like my blog twin since our blogs started right around the same time!
