I can’t believe how long it’s been since I have blogged. Sorry guys 🙈. Here are my excuses:

-I have been working like crazy

-I just found Scandal on Netflix and it is consuming a lot of free time

Not in that order…lol

In all seriousness, I wanted to take a small step back and think of what I want from this blog.  I’m still not sure, but here is what I know. I love fashion and decor. It’s also something I feel naturally good at. It sounds silly, but I love the way clothes make people feel and how they allow you to showcase your personality. When I walk into a room of people, I’m actually pretty shy.  I’ve never been the life of the party and I’m not that person that people are just drawn to. I often leave a conversation thinking “that person was bored”. But my comfort zone is my clothes. They let me feel current, elegant, fun. They are how I take risks and feel sexy. When I think about it, it’s the easiest way for me to express myself. Before I started this blogging adventure, I would see other fashion blogs and think “I could do that. Why am I not doing that? I want to do that”. I was pretty sure that after a month, I would be blogging a few times a week, have 68.7k followers on Instagram and I would need an assistant to sort through all the collaboration deals I was being offered. And then that didn’t happen. And it was frustrating. And disappointing. So I took a step back.

But I really missed it.

I realized that success here isn’t about how many likes I get on Facebook.  It’s in creating this wonderful outlet for me to both share something I enjoy with you and to form an amazing chronicle of our lives with a funny, witty, sassy and beautiful 1.5 year old who seriously grows and changes every week. I have decided to change my expectations. I am going to get my head around the fact that if I only get 30 likes on my Instagram picture, it doesn’t mean it’s a bad picture. It’s a good photo because I like it. If I get rejected from “like to know it” AGAIN, I will keep moving forward. Is it hard not to compare? Of course it is. But I am going to let this process grow organically and continue to share what I love. If I never get a free stroller, well who cares.
