It’s been a while since I’ve written something real in here. Don’t get me wrong, all my posts are completely genuine and from the heart; I love being able to share the things that leave me in awe. But I guess I’m just afraid that I’ve trapped myself in a corner, hiding behind all these pretty pictures and styled outfits, convincing myself that this was always my original intent. But it’s not, really. It’s so easy to forget what it is you’re working towards when you’re surrounded by all these lovely distracting things, even more so for someone as visual as myself. I do love food, I do love fashion, I do love Atlanta, I do love a lot of things. The thing I’ve forgotten is that this blog was not just about loving and sharing these beautiful little things.. it’s also about the big picture too. You know, the picture of my life. I’m still sketching it all out and it’ll always be a work in progress.
As I get closer to the first anniversary of Tide & Bloom (!!!), I’d like to tweak and re-state my intention for this space. It may take some rambling posts about patience, creativity, and the like (you know the deal), but I believe that reflection is in order. It may take me a while to figure out the next step, so my posts may become irregular or sparse in the coming weeks. But it will all be for the purpose of my sanity, for re-calibrating the balance in my life.
If you’re a regular reader, I thank you for bearing with me through my first year. I’ve learned so many things about myself and had the chance to connect with a lot of amazing and inspiring people. I intend to continue sharing the beautiful discoveries in my journey and I hope you’ll stay along for the ride!
