'til the landslide brings me down

I've been a bit on the quiet-side lately. To be perfectly honest, I've just been feeling down. Frustrated. Uninspired. Defeated. Tired. I just haven't felt like putting much of an effort into anything. 

It's not that I want to give the impression on my little blog that everything in my life is always grand, but I don't want to be a Debbie Downer either. I strive for openness and honesty, but I also value my privacy. I don't want to air my dirty laundry on the Internets for all to see, and I certainly don't want to burden anyone with every little stress that comes up in my life.

However, at this point, openness and honesty are going to win. When it comes down to it, I really just need to vent and decompress.

Lately, I've been longing for a change. An challenge. Creativity. An adventure. My frustration is hugely stemming from stress at work, as well as the huge ball of stress that comes with wedding planning. I won't bore you with the details, but if you have a few spare happy thoughts, to send my way, I'd be eternally grateful.

For now, I'm trying to turn my focus to things that bring me, and others, happiness: The new spring flowers that are blooming down our block. Game night with friends. Bringing leftover Easter candy to the residents at work. Trips to the library with Kyle. Going up north at the end of the week.

I have so many things to be thankful for, I just need to remember to take the time to notice them. Not just on the sunny days, but on the rainy days as well, and always.

If you made it this far, thank you for listening. I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of blogging, and I wish all of you a happy spring. Stay tuned!

With love,

  1. Oh my gosh, it's like we are funk twins! As you know, I understand exactly how you are feeling. Planning a wedding is so joyous but can also be so anxiety producing! Do what I'm doing - plant yourself on the couch and watch America's Next Top Model :)

    Feel better soon! <3
