mrs lumberjack is back at it





coat: asos (sold out) similar cut here, jeans: gap, sweater: gap, shoes: sam edelman here, hat: target, sunnies: free people here or try these for much less :)
today for the first time in the past 6 months I have actually felt the urge to blog again. don't ask me what has prompted this, I honestly don't know. what started out as an intended break of maybe 3-4 weeks while we were in Germany, turned into me questioning if I'd ever go back to blogging at all. 
stepping away from it all made me realize how I needed much more of a break than just a few weeks and how I didn't miss sharing in this place right here, as much as I always thought I would.
i had gotten to a point where I wanted and needed to focus more of my attention on being present in the moment rather than always trying to capture that perfect photo or make sure my outfit was "good enough". i realized that blogging had become much more of a chore than I had ever wanted it to be and I felt burnt out. so I stayed away, and it felt great, and I didn't miss it.

we spent the summer doing lots of nothing very exciting at all, and the fall finally brought home that hard working man and extra time together allowed for lots of new adventures. instagram filled the void that the "sharing with a community" part of blogging had left in me. i have met some truly incredible people there and connected with a lot of blog readers as well. 

now I am slowly starting to ease back into this world right here, not knowing if anyone out there is even still reading this. i am hoping to come back here with new energy and a new perspective. i won't be sharing as much and as often. if there is nothing to say, there won't be anything new. i honestly have no idea what this is going to look like exactly, but for now I am back with this post. So let's see what happens, shall we?

  3. I am so happy to see you in my newsfeed sweet friend! Gorgeous outfit, gorgeous you! I totally know what you mean about needing a break. I currently feel over writing posts and getting outfits together so I'm taking December off to enjoy the holidays and not worry about blogging and I'll see from there. Excited to see your updates though!!

  5. You don't know me, but i got some inspiration from your DIYs a while ago. I have always thought that blogging sometimes capture to much time of the real life. But it's cool you're back. Because I am from Germany i am really interested: in which part of the country have you been? Reply, Melanie
