on hold.

I have been working on a little blog post of our vacation time down in Southern California.
I've been busy uploading pictures from both my phone and my memory cards, organizing them
and editing them as well.

But then, I had a revelation and I made a decision.

I'm going to have to put this little blog on hold for a bit. It hurts my little heart, because this space has been such a wonderful place for me and I've met so many wonderful people through it, 
but it's the right time to do it.

You see, while I'm not in the habit of posting on a schedule, I have blog posts created in my mind.
I know you can't see them, but they are there :)  There they sit, waiting for  pictures and the words to come together so that they could be shared here, with you all.

But for now, I need to take the pressure off of myself so that I can fully focus on some other things
that need my attention.

 I'm starting back up with a new (to me) bible study soon. It's been a while since I've been in one and 
I'm super excited to get back in the Word again.

In addition, the next 2 weeks I'll be starting an intensive advanced photography class..and then right after that
an advanced editing class. Plus,  I've got two photography walks that I've signed up for.

I can't explain this drive inside of me for photography. It's not something I can put into words because it's that emotional for me. The way one image can relay so many emotions.. that right there is so powerful to me and I want to capture that with my camera. Does that sound so foolish? 

Would I ever want to do it professionally? Meh. I don't know. I don't think I can even take my mind there right now because I'm still so new to it all.
Maybe, maybe not. I'm sure my husband would like to see a return on our investment at some point (camera, lens', time, etc) but the beautiful thing about this guy that I married, is that he gives me time to figure it out.. he lets me explore the things that I love (bless his heart).

Oh, and did I mention that I've committed myself to making our own baby food for the baby? 
That task right there makes me nervous, because me and the kitchen aren't exactly best friends..
but it's gonna happen. I promise :)

So, basically, I need all my blogging brain cells to be devoted in other areas of my life because seriously,
that baby food making may just kill me.

I'll be checking in on all my favorite blogs and still be on Instagram (IG for life) :)

Good for you for knowing your limits. I had to stop blogging during the school year. I missed it, but knew that I had to focus on everything else first. You're talented and I know you'll love pursuing your photography skills. xoxo

I totally understand how hard it is to put the blog work down for a while. My freshman year of college, I was just too overloaded with "obligations," and God really had to show me where to prune my schedule. I ended up scaling back on my blog big-time (at least during the school year). I think it was worth it in the end. God always knows best.
