One of the may photos I shot while I was away. Check out the full photo story.

I'm alive!

I know this break wasn't ideal. As expected, lack of posts resulted in a huge drop in traffic and communication from readers. I love hearing from you, so I was feeling extra lonely the past few weeks despite being so busy I could burst. Sometimes, however, the less than ideal ends up being what's necessary. I want this blog to be a place to share what I love and what inspires me, not an obligation. So by taking the obligation out of the picture - not posting for a few weeks - I've essentially given myself a fresh start.

And I'll take it.

So what have I been up to?

  • Taking pictures like nobody's business. I'm up to my eyeballs in edits.
  • Cooking lots of glorious food. I got creative and began inventing my own recipes.  More on that in the coming weeks.
  • School work. Boring, I know. But 18 units aren't going to complete themselves, and I am chasing after that 4.0.
  • Training for my October half marathon. I'm terrified at the idea of 13.1 miles, but I will cross that finish line if it kills me!
  • Reading. Who would have thought a goal of 24 books in a year would be so difficult? Well, at least I'm making some progress. Currently reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, an amazing work of nonfiction. I would definitely recommend it. 

Did you miss me? What have you been up to while I was gone?

I was actually just bopping around on your blog a bit about an hour before you posted this! What a crazy coincidence. Well I definitely missed your posts... and I'm looking forward to more :) However things are crazy for me at the moment too and I am trying to dial back a bit on my own blog as well as with reading blogs, which is no fun at all really... spring seems to be one of those seasons where EVERYONE is crazy busy!!

I just finished my first half marathon and I thought the exact same thing when I started training! Don't worry, you will get there. 24 books in a year!? I'm impressed! Good luck :D
