So I kind of took an unplanned blog break for 6 weeks. Sorry about that. Even though you might not care, I feel like I owe you guys a little baby explanation too. Since November last year, my life has been all out of whack. No work life balance, no self-care, and some days no time to breathe thanks to my more jam-packed then ever work schedule.
True to form though, I didn’t stop. I just tried to push through and do all the things – be a great mom, run my business, write my blog, run my other business, and launch an e-magazine. Well we all know how these stories end – the butler did it – oops, wrong story, the correct answer is burnout. In my case the burnout was mostly related to my creativity. My muse was basically telling me, if you won’t feed your soul, I won’t give you any creative juices to work with. (Kinda of deep, but true)
Thankfully, I finally worked my way out my funk a couple of weeks ago, and I feel ready to come back to blogging (hopefully there are a still of you hanging around these parts and willing to follow along?). I may or may not write about the darker days and feelings I’ve dealt with over the last 6 weeks, but in the meantime, here are a few life updates and random thoughts to get you guys caught up.
? We moved our business into an office! I totally owe you guys a longer, thoughtful post on what the process of going from working at my dining table to having an office of our own was like – but for now, I’ll just say it has it’s pros and cons. The most beautiful thing is the sense of pride and accomplishment I feel every time I open the door in the morning!
? My kids have pretty much morphed overnight. Armaan’s voice broke, he turned 13 (officially a teenager), and he’s taller than me! Zara is growing into this super stylish, graceful, elegant little woman – bye, bye Punky Brewster (insert tear drop here)
? Watching/Reading: I watched Beauty & the Beast, and Boss Baby recently, both were amazing for different reasons. Currently dying to watch Phillauri, hopefully later this week. I tried re-reading The Kite Runner a couple of weeks ago and was totally traumatized, and now I’m reading Karan Johar’s autiobiography for a brain break.
? You can expect to see a lot of fashion & beauty posts in this space over the next few weeks because I’ve totally purged my makeup and started from scratch, and the closet situation is pretty similar. (The new office has sparked a lot of changes in my daily routine)
? My biggest struggle at the moment is getting dinner hour sorted at our house. Between my move to the office and barely making it home for 5:30, plus the added workload of new clients, we are really struggling with get good home cooked meals on the table right now. This is on my must fix yesterday list!
That’s it from me guys, what’s new in your world? Any exciting changes in the last 6 weeks? Any tips for balancing life as an ‘office-going’ mom?
