For just a little while

Happy Tuesday folks!

             Hope everything is going well in your neck of the woods! Today I've come to share with you the reason I'm going on a little vacation from my blog.

Lately I've had this overwhelming pull to unplug. I spend a lot of time online and it's becoming too much. I find that I'm forcing myself to pump out posts and I feel like it's showing in my writing. I would cruise around the blogosphere for hours but I just don't have that urge anymore. So, I want to step back and take some time away to regroup and to come up with some fresh ideas.

This is not one of those I'm-going-to-take-a-week-off-and-then-you-never-see-me-again posts. No way! I just need to re-charge my creative juices and start taking some risks!

I want to thank everyone who reads my little blog. You are all so inspirational and I can't wait to come back and hand back some of that inspiration!

I also am frustrated with my camera. It's not my camera...it's me! I haven't taken the time to learn the basics and because I usually take my pictures at night that ads to my frustration with lighting etc. I am going to take some time and learn some basics and set up something like a light box or maybe light bouncing props like Averie so geniously made! I want the process to be enjoyable and the only way that is going to happen is if I invest some time into learning a few things.

So, I'm off for just a little while but don't fret I'll be back before you know it! Thank you for your understanding and hope to see you when I return:) XOXOXO

I so understand the need to unplug! I sometimes get posts ready ahead of time so I don't have to post much during times when I just don't feel like writing.

I try to take most of my pictures during the day and outside. It really helps make a mediocre camera better.

Enjoy the time off.

enjoy the little break! I've done that before, it does help.

my boyfriend teaches an increasingly popular DSLR photography class, you should take it, you'll learn TONS in 3 hours. He's quite the teacher apparently lol. He's an expert in lighting too, so you could ask him about lighting stuff :-)

See the link below.


Take care!

I hope your doing well hun! I've unplugged a few times from blogging too :) It can be one of the best decisions you make to recharge.

Talk to you soon!
