Happy Monday!

It has been an entire month since I last blogged and to be honest that feels like yesterday. I did not intentionally mean to take a break, at all. It just kind of happened. In my opinion it was much needed. I cannot tell you how good it felt to not worry or think about outfits and posting. Or tweeting and commenting and emailing. Sometimes this blogging world is a bit much. I have been blogging for over four years straight. That is a long time to stay so connected to something. The one thing my break reminded me is that I still have so much love for blogging, writing, sharing and connecting. I am not ready to dive back in to 4-5 posts a week yet, but I will be more available because I have missed my {online} friends!

My life has also been a little overwhelming in the best way possible! Every weekend/week I was somewhere fun. Two trips to San Luis Obispo, Palm Springs, Mexico and few local beach trips with loved ones were all on the schedule. Throw in work, dating, work outs and friends I was definitely burning the candle at both ends. I feel SO SO SO fortunate to have had the amazing Summer that I have had. It has definitely been one of the best Summer's of my life! In fact I am headed out to beach camp for the week. Enjoying the last days of Summer and soaking up all the sunshine I possibly can.
