Sorry For The Long Absence

Hello everybody.

I am happy to say that yes I am finally back to the land of blogging and that life is returning to normal. I had never intended to be gone for quite as long as I actually was. My one week planned vacation from blogging turned into 6 weeks away because my life just got a lil too overwhelming there for awhile and I honestly needed a break.

I have a tendency to take on too much at once and I think that’s exactly what happened here. I was doing daily photo challenges on Instagram, daily blogging on here for NaBloPoMo, coordinating not one but two silent auction fundraisers, helping run a nonprofit, editing manuscripts written by my author peeps during NaNoWriMo, trying to run a photography business, trying to rebrand and update the pricing for said photography business, etc. I just couldn’t keep up with everything once you throw in life, love, the pursuit of happiness, severe bouts of insomnia and the crash that eventually follows. Like I said, I really really needed a break so I took one.

I knew I would miss the daily peeks into all of your lives. And as much as I was gonna hate to be away from this blog for that long, I knew it was a necessity if I wanted to keep my sanity and get caught up on everything. That being said, I went off the grid for over a month and I must admit it felt pretty darn great. Since coming back from my internet hiatus, I have felt more refreshed and ready to take on regular blogging again.

First off though here’s a lil bit of what you missed from my part of the world….
