I've unintentionally taken a bit of a blogging break. And email break. And creative break. It's not that I wanted to, really, but it just sort of happened. I'm one of those people who tends to be easily overwhelmed, and I suppose that it's been a little refreshing to step away.
In any case, I'm determined to get back into the swing of things! You don't realize how important something like a blog is until you haven't really used it for a few weeks.
So, if it isn't obvious enough already, life has kept this girl quite busy for the last month. I enjoyed a quick visit to my homeland (Washington State) for the wedding of Jay's youngest brother, kept incredibly busy with the new job, attended the Renegade Craft Fair in LA (as shown in the above photo), experienced my first Korean body scrub/public nudity experience (as shown in absolutely no photos ever), have been reconnecting with my spiritual side, have made a handful of new friends, am proud to report that my body image has been soaring, and am slowly working through my emotions when it comes to a situation that is simply out of my hands.
It's been interesting to notice how there is always so much to learn about myself and the person I am. Sometimes I feel like I have a handle on exactly who I am, exactly what life means to me, exactly who I want to be. Then I'll experience something that opens my eyes even more. I'm learning a lot about my flaws, my fears, my talents, things I need to change, things I need to fight to keep the same as they've always been.
It's good, though. Life has been good. I'm slightly giddy about making time to share it with each and every one of you once again!
