Lately I have found myself drawn to more comfortable pieces in my wardrobe such as leggings, tees and flats. With most of my days spent at the grocery store, library, park or outside with my kids it is important for me to go back to the basics (tee and leggings) and call it a day. While wearing fancy felt hats and fun boots with nice outfits are great, as a mom of four these aren’t practical in my day-to-day activities with them. So today I bring you a more laid back look. I added some leopard pops to spice up the white and black so it doesn’t look so uniformed.
It is no secret that I LOVE blogging. I love the friendships I have made, the collaborations with other bloggers and brands, the chance to shine and be creative; however the past few weeks I have been burned out.
Matthew 11: 28 “ “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
This past weekend I finally went into a “rethink blogging mode.” Now this doesn’t mean I am giving it up, but for goodness sakes I blogged everyday last week and normally blog 3-4 times a week, and blogging hours a week is getting shorter and shorter it seems. It also makes me sad that I am not as committed to reading and commenting on the blogs I used to read and be inspired by daily as during the day I use this time to be with my kids, so following and meeting new bloggers has been put on the back burner as well.
My husband works all night long (while we are sleeping) and then sleeps part of the day. He is such a good husband and father to manage to squeeze in a few hours with us a night before a new work day (night) starts. Because of this he is tired most of the time, and any help he can offer as my photographer has been almost zapped.
I talked with him Sunday and told him I think I need a few weeks to recharge and post very little on this space. He seemed sad by my decision as he knows my passion for it, but there are a list of things to get done that I want to accomplish that I can’t while being with my kids all day and blogging almost full time.
I will still post, but for a few weeks it will be less than before and with the holidays coming upon us I know I need this extra time to be with my family, extended family and get loads of things done. I hope you understand.
What tips do you have for blogger burnout?
I will continue to read and catch up to your blogs. I hope you will join me tomorrow for another “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me” link up, come on by and link up your fashion, DIY, recipe or other inspirational posts.
Also come back next Monday as some blogging friends and I show you how we spent a budgeted amount at Target.
Thanks again, you all are amazing and I thank you for your support of this blog.
