I never meant to take a blogging hiatus but I needed it.

I needed to soak up summer, I needed to focus on my job and my family, I needed to focus on me.

I make no excuses, this blogging break felt good. I feel excited and recharged, I am excited for future plans. I have been writing posts, but not publishing them and I am excited to hit publish on all the new content come August, but first I am going to soak up the rest of July, which seem to be here and almost gone in the blink of an eye.

Keep up with me here & here in the meantime.

Weekend Tending V.03

I feel happy and proud to know that when I have kids they will be raised in a world where love wins.

I thought at 25 I would have this whole life thing figured out, definitely not true.

I am a type A, I strive on lists and routine and constants. A great read on going with embracing unpredictability.

How you are ruining your life and don't even know it.

This video, love is love.

I loved this. 10 things I want my daughter to know before she turns 10.

One of the best DIY's I have seen in a while.

If you love the show FRIENDS, you will definitely love this.

“You only get one life. It's actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.”

One of my favorite ways to escape this crazy life is through a good book, fiction or non-fiction, I'll take either. I have been struggling lately to find time to read, between work and being exhausted by the time I get into bed at the end of the day, reading has definitely fallen to the back burner. Last weekend, however, I picked up a book I had started a little while ago and got lost in it, I forgot how good it felt to get sucked into another world. I read for an entire night and then went to bed not being able to sleep, just thinking about the book, so I woke up early and finished the last 100 pages.

Books allow us to gain different points of view, they allow us to get lost in a different time and place, they allow us to forget just for a brief time what we have going on and provide characters that are relatable or fascinating enough to distract us from what is in our own head. Books provide creativity, ideas, dreams and hope.

If you are looking for a great book to get lost in I give 5 stars to Me Before You by JoJo Moyes
