First thing's first: HAPPY NEW YEAR!
And secondly: Yes, I'm still alive.
It's been a whole 4 months since my last post. Time has been flying. I've been contemplating a new post for some time and just kept putting it off. Funny thing is - as much work as having a blog is and how I sometimes really had to muster up the energy or find the time to post, I really, REALLY started to miss it. So here I am, back
for now for good (that's the plan, anyway!).
If you follow me on instagram (you can find me @shampel) then you already know what I've been up to over the last 4 months. For those of you who don't, then I offer this as an explanation:
While pregnancy certainly isn't an excuse to not blog.... it kind of is mine! Obviously, there are tons of girls out there who continue to blog during their pregnancies, especially during those rough first few months (and all the power to them).... BUT I've just been so, SO tired. I can hardly make it through a workday without wanting to nap on my keyboard so getting home and sitting in front a computer to write up a new blog post has been the last thing on my mind.
And, of course, the inevitable happened. My clothes started fitting funny. And things got tight. Real tight. I don't think anyone needed to see that.
So fast forward to today, I'm just about 26 weeks into the pregnancy and thankfully I've regained a bit of energy - although I am still waiting for that second trimester burst of energy that everyone talks about. WHERE IS IT!? I'm just happy to be feeling a bit more like myself again and finally ready to jump back into the blogging world that I've been missing so much.
I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to blog about over the next few months. Preggo outfits (do you know how hard it is to find stylish maternity clothes in Ottawa? IMPOSSIBLE.) Nails? DIYs? Who knows. But I hope you stick around (is anyone even reading this?) as I figure it out :)
Feels good to be back. Happy weekend!
