Life, Travel / August 9, 2017


I’m sorry for the lack of writing these days. It’s that time of year when you feel like your plate is overflowing (in more ways than one) and because there is a limit to the amount of time in one day, something has got to give! I’m kind of at a point right now where I’ve got SO much going on in so many different areas of my life that I’m not able to give myself fully to anything. And I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of that feeling. I love everything that I have taken on…so much so, that a mediocre effort is just not enough for me. So, it comes down to determining…what has got to give?

But what do you do when you feel like everything you’re commited to is of equal importance? Like there is no way you can possibly prioritize because it all means so much to you?

I read an article by another blogger the other day…the name of the blog escapes me now (I’ll be sure to add it when it comes to mind). She wrote on a similar topic and provided this analogy:

Think about when you’re getting ready to go on a trip, and you make yourself this long to-do list of all things you just have to get done before you leave. Every item on your list seems so important at the time, but as you board your flight, or embark via car, surely a few items were left undone. You see, they weren’t all as equally important as you thought. You ended up prioritizing after all.

She continued by explaining that it’s the same in life. I clung to this concept, because it’s so true. Sometimes, SOMETHING has got to give. Not for forever, just for now. That’s what I always tell myself.

And unfortunately my blog has been put on the back burner…because [joyfully] family has been the focus of my attention. And that’s OKAY. I’ll be around. I just had to drop the schedule obsession and perfectionism for the moment. Luckily, I know y’all understand. This is a Lifestyle blog after all…and the spontaneous and unexpected is part of life.

See above for a little look into our trip to Michigan. We saw lots of family and even more snow! We ate and drank too much, and shared lots of laughs and warm blankets. We only won $12 at the casino, but their bacon mac n cheese made it totally worth it.

To follow along a little more closely, IG is the way to go. You can find me @coffeewithkylie. Wishing you all a blessed New Year…full of love, joy, and fearlessness!

Happy 2017!

    Love that you admit to it… Part of a lifestyle blog is LIFE. Can’t always maintain perfect attendance. Love your photos. Snow really makes a great background for a pop of color!

    Love that top!!! Your post could quite possibly be me right now, started a new blog in Aug, work a full time job, two children under 5, helping a friend bring her botique back up and running, and the list goes on… I definatly need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture and its not a FOREVER, just a FOR RIGHT NOW, which helps.
