Break Required

It's been quiet around here lately....I know....

Break Required

I've sat down to write this post many, many times and have deleted it each time. What it boils down to though is that something in my life has to give, and for now, it has to be blogging.  

Fin is getting more and more active and napping less and less, which means I have less free time. I am committed to her and want to be the Mom that does things with her, and not the Mom who sits at the computer while she watches TV.  I am also struggling with how much of Fin's life to share with the world.  This has always been a concern of mine, and as she grows into a little girl, it has become more and more apparent that sharing her special spaces with the world is something I am not comfortable with.  I've actually finished her new big girl room, took the photos, and couldn't bring myself to write the post.  Something about it was nagging at me. I wanted the space to be hers, and only hers.  I am sure that doesn't make sense to everyone, but I have to trust my gut as it doesn't usually let me down.

When I do have some free time to myself, I am finding myself drawn to do other things instead of sitting at the computer.  Maybe I just need a bit of unplugging? I'm not sure. What I do know, is that I need to take a break.  

I wish I could tell you how long the break will be, or if I will be back at some point, but for now, I just can't. We've slowed down on house projects after going strong for 5 months. We need a break from DIY over the holidays, so my content to pull blog posts from is lacking to say the least. I won't post just for the sake of posting.  Maybe as we get things done in the house I'll be able to pop in here and there with a room reveal, but I just don't know.  I am going to take the time to enjoy the holidays with my family and then we are going on a  great big long beach vacation, and then I will regroup and see where I am at.

In the meantime, if you'd like to stay connected, I plan on continuing to blog regularly over on my Fiddle Leaf Photography site.  It's not DIY focused, but I do post some personal pictures from my week, my trips, etc over there. I'm also still posting regularly on Instagram (fiddleleafphoto) and on the Fiddle Leaf Facebook page.  I do also still check my email, so feel free to shoot me a note if you ever have a question or want to say hi.

Thanks so much to you for reading and for following along with our DIY adventures over past 2 years.  I appreciate each and every kind word that has been thrown my way - I mean that, from the bottom of my heart.  I hope you have a fantastic holiday season and wish you and your family all the joy in the world.

p.s. if you're at a point in your life when you think it might be time to quit something, I highly recommend this article. I love how she says that maybe we should be changing the word quit to the word evolve.
