Schmallenberg I’ve been silent here on the blog for the past couple of weeks but I think you will forgive me. I have been working on something that has taken up ALL of my energy!

10That right there is a cute little baby at my 9 week ultrasound this week! I’ve been feeling great (yay, right?) but have just been super tired and along with that have lost all motivation to do anything! That has been the weirdest part for me so far. I am always doing things, making things, taking pictures. The past few weeks though, I’ve literally felt like doing nothing. I just can’t get myself going! I know it’s temporary so I’m allowing myself to just do what I need to do to keep myself healthy (hello, naps! and snacks!) and let the rest slide until I’m ready to get back into it. Which is why I let myself take a blogging break!

I recently read a great blog post “Taking It Slow” by Stephanie of The Quiet Life of Violet which talks about her thoughts and feelings of stepping away from the online world a little bit and focusing more on what is right in front of her. Allowing herself to really think about her priorities and admit that writing a blog post can seriously wait because it doesn’t matter at all in the big picture. Reading what she said, right in the moments where I was feeling pretty bad for not making anything new for the shop or writing on the blog in a week (by that point) made me feel better. It reminded me that the most important thing I can do right now is take care of my needs – which is really – my baby’s needs. Everything else can come later.

I’m so excited for this new chapter in our lives! This won’t turn into a “mommy blog” but it has always been a lifestyle blog, so I’ll share bits of this new part of my life just as I have with other parts of my life in the past! I hope you’ll stay along for the ride! 🙂

p.s. Don’t you just love that little “bum”? Ha! It’s so much cuter with that label on it! I love that she did that.
