I can’t believe we are in mid-September! I feel like I have been playing catch up throughout this entire year and we are nearing the end of it! I still feel so far behind and especially with blogging.
During our previous cup of tea I talked about taking time to celebrate life by spending quality time with loved ones. I have been cutting time from the blog and social media to enjoy my extra time with my hubby.
We both spend a lot of time thinking and doing for others, which we sincerely enjoy, but it has cut our own time short. Lately, I have been making sure to unplug from technology at the end of our workday to chat over dinner and be more present with one another.
I have also disconnected myself from my phone when I am around friends and family to cherish our moments together and spark more conversation. Although I have been itching to get back to writing blog posts, I do not regret taking the extra time off from blogging to regroup and find a steady life rhythm.
A huge announcement that I would like to share is that my husband and I are looking into purchasing a home. We are both first-time homebuyers and are trying to educate ourselves as much as possible to make sure we are making the right moves. I am excited and also a bit apprehensive because we are planning on moving to another region of Florida that is about 4 hours away from where we live now. But we are praying and learning about the whole process to decide what steps we will take. To be continued…
I found a really fun challenge that I thought would be great to kick start my blogging routine:
The September #LazyBlogging challenge is meant to help bloggers achieve a blogging schedule that works for them and maintain it.
I am late in starting it, but NOW is always the best time! I also set out a schedule for myself once again on the days I will write and post. One of my major challenges is making sure to get enough sleep and rest so I am prioritizing my health over blogging. Therefore, I may not stick to the #LazyBlogging schedule indefinitely, but I do plan to keep a more even paced posting routine.
If you would like to join, make sure to follow the guidelines on the picture above and tag @lazyblogging on Twitter for retweets.
When I am not actively posting on the blog, I am making an appearance on social media to keep up with fellow bluddies and make new ones!
We can stay in touch at any of the following and I follow back all my blog friends:
I am going to be honest. I find it rude when someone follows just to get me to follow back and then unfollows me. I periodically check for unfollowers and I return the favor if you do so. Most of you may know by now that I am all about giving and supporting, but if it is not appreciated I will focus my energy elsewhere. Hope this sounds fair enough 😉
In the spirit of celebrating life, here is a touching and inspiring video my father shared with me:
How do you maintain balance and excitement in your life?
