hello... anyone there? *ducks and prepares for things to be thrown* i know, i know. i said i was coming back... again. and i didn't. i'm sorry! but every term seems to present me with new challenges and to be honest as much as i was trying to tell myself it was, my heart just hasn't been in blogging this past year. i really don't know why but it hasn't been something i have felt anywhere near as passionate about. i really needed that time away from it to focus my thoughts and help rebuild that fire i had for it less than a year ago now. i don't know what changed yesterday but suddenly that excitement was there again. i had a want to really throw myself into the community and i even stayed up all night (i am still yet to sleep) scheduling blog posts, planning new ones and brainstorming even more ideas! i'm even planning a big change in the design of the blog so it really does feel like a fresh start! thank you so much for sticking around with me when i was a bit of a mess. but now i'm back bigger and better than before, feeling so much more confident, ready to remember all those reasons i fell in love with blogging in the first place! it's all upwards and onwards from here. watch this space.
