I know I've said this what seems like a million times in the last two months, but I'm worn out. I'm working hard from 8:30 to 5:30 every day. Actually, that's an understatement. Half the week I'm working from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 or 8:30 p.m. And with a life like that, I don't have much time to do fun things, which means I have less to talk about here and I have even less photos to show all of you. To be honest, because of my lack of free time, it's been a bittersweet transition back into office life. I'm excited to be at the helm of a really rad paper that I'm super proud of, and I love that each week I end up with a tangible product that I can hold and admire. But, I really miss having energy to do things in the evening. I miss checking in with all of you to see what's happening in your worlds and I miss the dialogue I used to have in this space. The truth is, though, with my schedule, I can't commit to blogging five days a week anymore. In fact, I can't even commit to reading my favourite blogs anymore. I don't have the brainpower or the will to do it. I tried keeping up and then I found myself feeling guilty because the content I was producing wasn't the same quality as it was before, nor were my comments on your blogs—when I was still making them. My heart isn't in it.
Now although this might sound like a goodbye, I don't intend it to be that way. I think it's more of an opportunity to explain where I'm coming from as I embark on a new posting schedule. Right now I need to blog when the time is right for me. Maybe that means committing to What to Wear and Ladies of the Mountains and a few posts in between when I have the content, the time and the enthusiasm to write them. I just don't want to waste this space on filler and I don't want to waste your time on filler either. I appreciate all of you too much for that, and I ask that you bare with me as I figure out how to make this space work with my crazy, hectic schedule.
Sorry for the unannounced hiatus last week. Please know that it left me feeling ever-so-slightly refreshed and even more excited to use this space for what I intended it: content that's true to who I am.
On that note, see you all tomorrow when I share some photos from my first-ever pride parade! Let me just say it was amazing and leave it at that.
Has life ever gotten so crazy that you had to take a step back from your blog?
