Hi, hello, happy Thursday!!
That introduction seemed a little lackluster, but I’m not sure there is any great way to say “Hi, so sorry I have been M.I.A for the last 6 months, but here I am now, so hopefully you haven’t forgotten about me, and hopefully you’re ready to see my face again and thanks so much for being patient”?? If anyone knows a word that sums that all up, please pass the info along.. but for now, we will just stick with: SURPRISE, I’M BACK BABYYYYYYY. 🙂
I posted my first real blog post on this day two years ago, so it kinda sorta, really a lotta bit felt like no better time than right this second to get this bad boy up. I keep it mostly short and sweet because words are hard, and there’s no pictures (ugh, who likes a novel without pictures? NO ONE). Regardless, keep on reading for somethin’ exciting.
I have had a lot of intentions to get the blog back up and running for a few months now, but life kinda got in the way. Essentially ya girl needed to make some monayyyy. Good news is that I did just that (and then I spent a very good portion of it, but is anyone really surprised by that???) But I also found myself in this new phase of life where I was literally terrified of everything that came along with making decisions. This summer, I suddenly became very aware that my time is money, and let me tell ya, this blog takes a lot of time (and money, and time as money, and money as time, ya know), and for some reason every time I came to my computer to type something, or scheduled blog pictures… it just seemed like a poor use of my time. (wowzers, how many more TIMES can I possible say ‘time”?) I couldn’t explain the feeling to you if I tried, but it almost felt like starting all over to me. Just the thought of getting this beast back up and running exhausted my brain and wallet all over again.
Where I am going with this rant? Couldn’t really tell ya, I like it to be a surprise to me too. 😉
But then I got to thinking (which I do often), why can’t I make this fun again? Why can’t I just pick back up where I left off? And after this very long-winded, dramatic thought process, I decided I have already laid the groundwork (past Ciera is so kind & helpful sometimes), so all I have to do is pick up where I left off, but be a little better this time around. Remember kids, you don’t always need to be the best, you just need to be better. I’m kidding (kinda) 😉
So with all of that being said, here I am with The Devil Wears Rompers 2.0. I am still going to bring you winter trends, cute outfits, and extensive beauty routines, along with gift guides and terribly corny jokes, but it’s going to be new and improved… just like my newly cleaned hair after 4 days of not washing it (Sorry mom, dry shampoo just works so well). But anyway, hopefully you enjoyed this random breaking news and prettiest of pleases check back next week for some good content and me blabbering. ILY SO MUCH and thank you for coming right on back to read the 10% of my thoughts that I actually find appropriate enough to put on the internet.
