Processed with VSCO with av8 preset

Well hello there.

I was MIA from here, and slightly from social media, for the last two weeks.

While in part some of it was due to being back in South Florida last week, a lot of it was for needing to reset.

I have always said I love this space. I have loved blogging since I created my first post back in 2010 or 2011. I let it fall by the wayside between 2014 to 2017. I have loved getting back into creating content, especially with the way blogging and social media has evolved over the years. It is fun, challenging, but all in all rewarding.

I have been having a sense of “burn out”. Not for any particular reason. I know we all have lives of different and varying degrees of difficulty. My life right now is wonderful, it truly is. But I feel overwhelmed. I am in this weird space of needing to juggle it all at once. I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge that trying to blog consistently is difficult when trying to throw it into the mix of a full time job, the gym, maintaining our new home, spending time with Victor & all of our babes, various organizations I try to be involved in etc.

I’m not saying this to for a woe is me moment, but to be honest that it’s not easy. I’m tired. There are some mornings I’m up at 4 am just to squeeze it all in. I’ve acknowledged that I need to change my current ways that is more effective for my time and my sanity.

I don’t have the secret sauce, but I can certainly share what I did where I get to a place of not feeling so inundated. I love being busy, I promise. But somedays it would be nice to just sit there. The only way for me to truly disconnect and bask in the ambiance is apparently to fly to Mexico to an all-inclusive resort like we did last March.

I’m not recharged, but I’m back. I love this space and I love sharing. I’m growing and I’m learning, and I’m one step closer to where I want to be. And to me that’s the most important.


-xx, Lauren.
