Summertime x Hello Again

Screen Shot 2016-06-14 at 6.04.01 PM

Everyone knows that life is unexpected and full of surprises. When I left for my road trip two weeks ago, I had content planned for the blog. I set up guest posts, saved pictures, planned media posts. Then surprise! Summertime and vacation dreaming took over everything.

My Sweet Baboo and I drove (rather than flew) across the country for his graduation, and everything just stopped. We were in the midwest, had limited cell service and the most gorgeous summertime weather. I stopped the crazy pace, I stopped the constant updates, instead I enjoyed what was right in front of me, and time with those I love.

I spent time on the prairie thinking and reevaluating all I have been putting into my life. What and who needed to be in it, and the things and people that really don’t need to be. I don’t think I realized how much I needed rejuvenation mentally, especially creatively. I feel as though I have a spark again, and I’m ready to charge ahead and be the best I can be. I promise I didn’t forget entirely about the blog, instead I came up with some all new ideas for themes and content and so much more!

I’m sorry to my loyal readers and blogging buddies; I didn’t’ mean to disappear. I appreciate all the sweet comments you left and sent. I am so happy to be back in touch, and am looking forward to growing closer with each and every one of you.

Here’s to the beauty that is summertime, to family and friends, to sun and fun, and to everything that makes us happy!


PS: I have to disclose that I did take lot’s of time to keep up on my schoolwork! Somethings just can’t be given a break. So close to being done though!!!!

    Sounds like a much needed and much deserved break Kait! I feel this way all of the time, and I do not believe you ever need to apologize! We will all be here supporting you when you return, kickin’ bootie and takin’ names. Blogging and all that goes with it can be draining, and we all need a break sometimes!!! Welcome back!

    Jalisa is absolutely right!!!!! I feel the same….. sometimes you need to step away, and escape so that you can recharge yourself, and learn to focus on everything once you have recharged. I felt the same because my last post was on the 4th, and I wasn’t really thinking about my blog, but then today, I pulled up my blog, read a couple of my posts, and voila! I came up with another post!!!!

    Sometimes inspiration comes from unexpected places as well!

    Looking forward to your next post!!!!

    Sometimes I think it is good to take a break and enjoy life rather than life in social media. I have a hard time doing that as well, but if you live virtually rather than soaking up every moment, you may find yourself carrying a lot of regrets! So glad you are back. 🙂

      It’s so hard to step aside without feeling like you are letting everything slide, but it was definitely needed. I have absolutely no regrets about enjoying every moment of our break. Hugs, Kait

      Thank you love!!!! Missed chatting with you, and seeing all your new pics. I’m kicking myself cause I was out your way and didn’t think to call you up! Hugs, Kait

    Sometimes, stepping away and truly living in the moment is what’s need to help with putting our priorities in order and to help fuel our creativity and I’m glad you found all of that from your time away. One thing in life that stops for no one (not even Kim K) is time. Once it passes, we can never get it back and with it can come amazing memories. If we become so caught up with everyday life and all the to-do’s, we can easily miss the chance to create those memories and strengthen our relationships. Thanks so much for the update and I look forward to what I know will be amazing content, cheers!

    I love this reflective post. Sometimes, albeit unexpected, it’s nice to take a break from blogging. I went through something similar. Sometimes life just catches up with you, haha! I’m glad to have you back and I can’t wait to see what content you have in store for us 🙂
