I’ll Be Back…Soon!

Ever since the launch of At First Blush & Co. and Inside the Lovely, I’ve been struggling with a few things.  I am not one to usually open up quite like this but I am…and I think it’s fair to say…I’ve never been more real or honest on my blog about my feelings.

I love blogging. I do. I am just not sure of my direction anymore. Now don’t get me wrong, I am still going to blog about weddings. It just seems like we are all blogging about the same thing in one form of the other, and thinking of new content can be daunting, especially If you aren’t creating a new DIY every week or blogging about your own weddings. I’m not going to lie, I do not have a wedding every weekend; I only do a set limit of weddings each year and I do not blog about all of them. I am quite creative but DIY’s have not been a focus on my blog. I could talk more about my personal life. It is not that I don’t like sharing; I’m just fiercely private. I am not an open book; there are only pages that I choose to share. I am old-fashioned in that respect. I believe that certain things should remain sacred and I also believe that some say too much of what they are doing, constantly and this leaves nothing for the art of surprise. I’ve always been this way.

So I am struggling with loving so many things and wanting to blog about ALL of them all at once, which is exhausting to say the least. A close friend, recently said, “Write about what you love?” Well there are so many things I do love so how do I choose? Not easy. I don’t know the answer yet, but I am close. Plain and simple lovelies, I need to regroup and focus so that my new brand, website, and blog are in line with what speaks to my heart. So I am taking a break…not from you {oh gosh no!}. I’m taking a break to come back with a true focus that aligns with my brand and what I’ve worked so hard on for the past 8 months.

I will continue to share the “lovely” with you via my Facebook page and my Instagram feed. I’ll still visit your blogs, re-tweet your awesome posts, and as always continue to support you, my dear friends!

I have no idea what “epiphany”, if any, will happen during this break {it won’t be a long drawn out break only twenty-one quick days} but my faith and my passion will guide me. I truly believe that if you ask you shall receive and all I need is time; time to figure out what the Universe/God is trying to tell me that the clutter in my head hasn’t allowed me to hear. Just know that I’ll be back…very soon…on Monday, September 10, 2012… I will be right here and I hope you will be, too! XO

p.s. I have a few lovely series and weddings lined up to share with you upon my return! Can’t wait to share!

    Awe…I can’t believe I somehow missed this earlier. I completely understand where you are coming from. This business of blogging is SUPER hard. I have SO many ideas and projects and things going on ALL the time, my husband even said to me yesterday, “You know you NEED to take a day off at some point, right?” I know you will find your way with what you want to put forth here. You are amazing and no matter what you do…your cup is filled with success that runneth over. 🙂 Love you darling!ReplyCancel

    I love you lots. And am so proud of you for all of your hard work and commitment to your brand, blog, personal life and relationships with others. Breaks are important (not the one in your foot though 😉 so enjoy this little one you’re rewarding yourself with. XOXOReplyCancel

    Darling, what a beautiful post–and such tremendous, terrific honesty. I’ve been struggling a bit with blogging, too–and I know we’re not the only ones–but taking time to find a little perspective is so important. xoxoReplyCancel

    Naomi I’m so glad you have made this decision I too have had to make some decisions so I truly understand your position. I like to call it self preservation sometime we do “too” much and we need to refocus! I’ll see you when you return 9/10/12! xoxoReplyCancel

    I totally get it. I too struggled with this a few weeks ago. I felt like as a photographer I was “expected” to have a wedding photography driven blog but in my heart I just wanted to blog about my life as a photographer behind the scenes. I prayed on it, meditated on it and ust this morning I decided to follow my heart. http://www.luzvirginia.com is my portfolio site but my blog http://www.luzandchris.com, renamed as of this morning, is about me and my life with Chris, living a creative life. I know it’s not what people expect but I chose to go with what felt right to me. I’m sure it will come to you and I can’t wait to see what you have in store. Lots of love… – LuzReplyCancel
