Simplifying can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. It can apply to many aspects of our lives: relationships, our homes, the commitments we make, social media. Ultimately, we can all agree that the underlying goal of simplifying is to make life easier. For the past few weeks I made a conscious decision to take a little breather from blogging. We all have heard the downfalls of this amazing blogosphere, the thief of comparison. There are so many amazing bloggers out there that it is hard to not compare yourself to them and their successes. I found myself turning in to such a negative person. Spending way too much of my time trying to make myself and my blog like theres and loosing my own voice as a writer. With my little break from blogging I also decided to take a little breather from other aspects of my life I found to be a "waste of time", mainly television. Lucky for me, my little break came right when a lot of my favorite shows were wrapping up for the season, but it still felt amazing to not have the TV on. Instead I got to discover new music, read lots of new books (and old favorites), riding my bike around the city, discovering new restaurants, focusing more on my photography, doing some DIY projects I've had on the back burner, and even cooking up some new recipes. Safe to say this little break of mine has turned out to be one of the best decisions I made for myself. I do want to apologize, however, for leaving you all high and dry. Perhaps I should have made a little announcement on the blog, but to be honest I just didn't have it in me at the time to explain. And I didn't want to be all cryptic and up and disappear. But the good news is, I'M BACK, and feeling so refreshed!
