Blogust - Blog Everyday In August ♥


August is here! The last month of the summer and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will be the best month of the year yet. If you follow my blog quite regularly you may have noticed that the past two weeks I've taken a bit of a step back from blogging and my social media, the only site I've really been on is Instagram and I feel that I just needed this bit of a break for myself. I have been extremely busy as of late, I have absolutely no idea what I've been doing but I know that I haven't had a moment to stop and catch up with everything. Tyler Lee is now a very active toddler who needs my full attention all of the time. The intense heat has meant that he won't nap and go to bed when he used to so it seems as though I've been with him twenty-four seven making it impossible to blog at all. I've decided to join in with Blogust, a challenege to blog everyday in August to rekindle my love for blogging and to challenge myself with my writing and photography. I've been debating what direction to take my blog in and I think I should make it a bit more personal and photography based as I'm more comfortable with those themes and those are the blogs I enjoy reading the most. I'd also like to point out that the above image is not mine, I wish it was but I can never seem to get that beautiful, soft looking photography demonstrated in the above image. This picture is from one of my new favourite Instagram accounts to follow named mydreambook where a lovely lady shares her beautiful photography and all things snail mail which she sells in her little Etsy store. This lady makes me miss snail mail so much, I really wish I had the time to write letters again. Oh life, why do you always have to get in the way?

So, dear August, this is my first post for you, just thirty more to go before this challenge is completed. Lets hope August is amazing and you all enjoy following my Blogust adventure!

  1. I think taking a break sometimes is really a good think. I am looking forward to starting to take the weekends off.
