with winter fast approaching, I decided I need to hurry up and get all my fall content posted because let’s be honest .. blogging hasn’t been the main priority this season and I’m feeling behind!
last fall when I decided to try and run my blog as a business, I was so excited about what was to come .. I didn’t realize JUST how much time it was all going to take. and to start the year off I was pregnant, due in spring and ever since then we’ve been a family of five and my kids are certainly where most of my attention goes.
over the summer I spent a lot of evenings doing photo shoots with my sister and I was feeling so much guilt for not fully enjoying my summer with my family. I passed on swimming countless times because I didn’t want my hair up or the risk of getting it wet. I realized though that my girls won’t be 4, 2 and under 1 forever and thinking back on the months, I would get so sad dwelling on what I missed this past summer.
so my new attitude was that I was going to take EXTRA effort in enjoying the fall and the holidays. being more intentional with our time as a family and making time for my ‘work’ here on my blog and on Instagram.
blogging and running my social accounts is a full time job, it’s not one I get to clock in and out of, I’m constantly working with brands. designing concepts for shoots, planning outfits, writing posts, editing pictures and videos, I’m emailing companies, it’s a lot. and I love it. but I have to remember my WHY and my main WHY in life is my family.
I’ve been sharing more family posts and I have been loving it. yes I love fashion and will continue sharing my style. but my girls are so much of my life right now and I’ve got to do what’s best for them and my husband and me.
it turns out I’m not as great at balancing it all the way that I thought I’d be able to. somedays I’m scrambling to get work done, other days my kids watch movies and we stay in pj’s all day .. I’m not perfect but I do know when I need to make a better effort in various aspects of my life. and this summer showed me that the focus in my life needed to switch.
so here I am, in between not caring about how many likes my posts are getting and working my tail off to get the best brand deals because I love my job.
I’m grateful for those who support me in my efforts and for your love on all my posts regardless of if I’m sharing a new outfit or a fun family picture – you’re the best!!
