This is the first blog post I’ve written in a very, very long time. And by very I mean: almost six months. Even though I have been absent from my blog for quite some time, I’ve received many sweet messages from readers encouraging me to keep on posting. Thank you all for that.
There are a couple of reasons why I haven’t been blogging for this long, and the first one is: I’m expecting a BABY!! Yes yes, baby number 1 is on its way and due on my very own birthday: march 17th 2018, when I’ll turn 28!! I’m almost 6 months pregnant now. Our baby is doing very well and is kicking inside my belly like a little ninja every day. And so I’ve (we’ve) been too buzy with getting the baby’s room ready and sorting things out. Truth must be said, being pregnant and working 40 hours a week can be quite the challenge, so I’ve decided that I would put blogging on hold for a little while and instead, focus on growing this little human being inside of me.
Another reason for my long absence, is the fact that blogging isn’t very fulfilling for me right now. I’ve been on a quest for the past couple of years, trying to understand what it is that makes me happy, and how I should reshape my current life into one that makes me feel more complete. It hasn’t always been easy, and since I’m naturally prone to self-doubt and self-criticism, I though it would be healthy for me to stop putting myself under pressure trying to get a blog post out every couple of days.
Any who, I’m still not sure if I’ll keep blogging, but in the meantime, I felt like writing an update, so here we are.
Besides becoming pregnant, we took a trip to Slovenia, Germany and Austria during the month of July. It was a lot of fun, but it was also the beginning of my pregnancy so I didn’t feel so hot during our hour-long drives ^^
I’ve recently taken up handlettering, a form of craft I’m getting more and more into. This time, however, I will try to enjoy myself first, before putting myself under monumentous stress trying to accomplish something out of my handlettering.
So that’s that for now. I hope you are all doing well and I want to thank all of you for sticking around for so long.
I wish you all a lovely holiday season!
