I’ve sort of been beating myself up that I’ve neglected by blog (amongst other things) this month. My initial hope in taking a blog fast was to come back feeling excited and inspired but to be honest, I came back feeling tired and weary. All I can seem to get accomplished are the basics… Take care of Jack. Work. Emails. Dinner. Sleep. Everything else seems so HARD. I have only picked up my camera a couple times all month, one of those times being yesterday (above pics). I suppose it’s simply a season of life. The frigid cold outside doesn’t help. Maybe I have seasonal affective disorder. ha. But seriously I felt the need to explain myself to those of you that came back after my blog fast. The good thing the fast and the un-motivation did was help me realize I WANT to keep blogging. I’m not doing it because I have to. It’s because I LOVE going back and reading life moments. I hope someday Jack will too.
Anyway I still cherish this internet space of mine. And I’m reminding myself that you don’t always have to be pinterest-worthy. Here’s to new seasons and giving yourself a break!
I go through this all the time! It makes it even more difficult when your internet sucks! Sometimes I have to just let it sit overnight to load. I’ve pretty much given up on it while I live in my current house. Feeling like this helps you to realize where your heart really lies, and what you actually want to invest your time in.. and for me, the fact that I might need to take vitamins! 😉 It is hard to want to do anything when you feel tired… and cold.
Hey Kelly, I truly believe that blogs and blogging go through different chapters. I think we all just have to remember that your blog is first and foremost an expression of YOU. So if you are going through a slow time, then of course it will reflect in your blog. No pressure, and there will always be readers whether you post once a day or once a month. Happy Monday!

So true! Blogging can be exhausting and I think we all go through seasons like this. No worries! Take your break and your readers will be excited when you do post!
i go through the SAME thing! if there’s one thing i feel badly about in terms of not having enough time, it’s neglecting my blog, because i LOVE going back and reading about where i was at in other points of my life. i have been blogging for about seven years now and there have been months i’ve only posted once, or even entirely skipped. but looking back, i’m just so thankful for what i do have documented, which is a lot more than i would have if i had just given up on it because i felt like i wasn’t doing it “well enough”, you know? now that i have three little ones, life is even busier, and i try to just do what i can and not beat myself up over it.
congrats on #2! 🙂 oh and make sure you’re taking vitamin d! i took some in addition to my prenatal vitamin last winter and i swear it really helped me get through those dark, short days.
