Where Have I Been?
Hey you guys! I have been majorly MIA from my blog this summer and for me it was so necessary. This was one of the best summers EVER. It does happen to be my last 'for sure' open summer as I am graduating in December so I wanted to say yes to everything possible! It led to TWO trips to New Mexico, a camping trip, a trip to Florida and numerous throughout Texas.
I started the summer off with my first trip to New Mexico (travel guide here) which kind of started my pattern of being unplugged. I am so shocked and thankful at how easy it was for me to put my phone down and spend time with my boyfriend. Our relationship is long distance so it was easy for me to want to give him my undivided attention when I could. It really helped our relationship grow and being unplugged has even extended into the rest of my life. I am by no means perfect, but being present has made moments so rich.
A few years ago, I was really searching for exactly how to be a good artist (LOL as if it were that easy) and I kept asking my mentors for their secrets and they told me to just go out and live my life. I remember being so mad that there was no better answer, but it turned out to be more than true. I have discovered sometimes putting your work away completely and doing the exact opposite of it like relaxing or adventuring can in turn make your product drastically better.
At this point, I have said yes to so much, put my blog on the backburner and let my relationship (especially with my bf!) grow and I am feeling more inspired than ever! I have so many post ideas and I am ready to get to writing some more! If you have any requests, lemme know!
