The above image from The Fresh Exchange expertly sums up what I was getting at when I made the confession that I took some time off from real life this past weekend, and it was exactly what I needed to read on Monday morning because I needed to be reminded that choosing time off isn’t admitting defeat. It’s about giving ourselves time to breathe.
Fun fact: Sometimes as bloggers we take the time to style, shoot, and edit photos for a sponsored campaign that end up not getting used due to one reason or another. Just another reason being a blogger seems like a lot of “fun”, but it’s not always as pretty as it seems. This happens to be one of those looks, and if you follow me on Instagram you’ve already seen the finish product. And if you don’t here’s the perfect excuse to do so.
To my former self: Choose your friends wisely. Invest in those friendships. Build a support system for yourself. Because no matter how strong you think you are solo, you’re even stronger when you have helping hands to fall back on.
For the first time in quite awhile I took an actual break from everything blog related for the weekend, including my social media channels and let me tell you – it was one of the best ideas I’ve had in awhile. We all need a time out here and there.

I don’t know about your families, but my parents and I don’t always see eye to eye. I mean I can guarantee they didn’t expect to end up with a tall, longhaired, tattooed son, but that’s how it ended up panning out. One thing we can all agree upon however is our love for coffee.
