Well, hello there!  My apologies for the extended hiatus!  This mamma of four just hit a wall back in June between all the end of the school year activities plus juggling two boys on travel baseball teams.  I finally had to admit that I was in over my head and I needed a time out.  I’m glad I made that decision because, during my break from blogging, I realized a few things:

  1. As much as I want to do it all, I have to learn to accept that I cannot do it all at once.  Some things have to give at times and recognizing my limits is okay!
  2. I really missed blogging!  The last few months before I took a break, the blog became a chore more than anything else.  I was feeling frustrated and uninspired and I felt that my content was reflecting that.  During my time off, I began to reevaluate the direction I want to take Taffeta & Tulips and what new and exciting things I wish to share with my readers.  So, stay tuned!
  3. Finally, I recognized that I was getting way too caught up comparing myself to other blogs.  I was feeling discouraged and directionless instead of focusing on my strengths and listening to my inner voice.  Self-doubt got the better of me so some soul searching was in order.  I realized I was having a slight pity party instead of asking myself some tough questions.  Opportunities come to those who work for it; not wish for it.

So, I’m back!  And I’m excited and energized!  I hope you’ll follow along with me as I revamp T&T and bring you fresh content and a new and improved outlook!  I also want to thank all of you who reached out to me during my time off.  I was so touched by your emails, texts, and DM’s on Instagram.  That meant so much and it definitely motivated me to get back on the horse.  Happy Monday!  I hope your week is off to a great start! xoxo
