In the Stillness of Time


I fear that I’ve been a bad blogger. In that, well, I haven’t actually blogged. For almost a whole month. I have been around, saying ‘hello’ on Twitter and on Facebook every now and then, but the door to my blog has stayed ajar – not closed, only ajar – just as I left it, with the light shining through, until I was ready to walk through it once again.

You see sometimes life throws you off balance and you need some time to center yourself again. Sometimes you need a little break, even from the things you enjoy the most. A little space, a little time for yourself, to clear the cobwebs, to breathe and just be. I know you know this; it’s part of living, part of being human, after all.

But then you wake up one day and you find that suddenly you’re ready to dip your toe into the water once again and you know that it’s time to come home. And so here I am. Home.

    Awesome! It’s great to see you’re back. I’ve been trying to be a good blogger and blog every day! So difficult, especially when working full time and juggling life in general! I can see why you needed to relax, kick back and enjoy! Very excited to keep reading your new posts. Those Valentine Cookies look lush babes! xx
