hi! hello! good morning!
I've been away for...twenty days? It felt so good to take a break!
I'm not sure if I cant put into words why I felt like I had to get away, but it boils down to this: it felt so incredibly over-whelming and anxiety inducing to even think about blogging. So much so that I just couldn't do it.
Today, I feel refreshed and ready to go again!
I thought I'd catch y'all up on what I've been up to the past few weeks and then share a few things I've added and subtracted!
First, this summer's weather has been insane but in a totally fantastic sort of way. I'm 95% sure that a cool summer means an early and freezing winter, but lets just focus on the positive here. Like minimal humidity and only three days that have been over 100 degrees. Yes. THREE days. That's it. It's a miracle, seriously.
Second, my husband smiled in a picture. Ok, so he also grimaced in another, but I'm not going to post that, mmmkay?
Third, this was an AMAZING baseball game at Kauffman Stadium! If you're ever in or around Kansas City, you must go to Kauffman, I've been to half a dozen different ballparks and Kauffman comes in second place only to Petco Park(San Diego Padres. Yes, the Padres are awful, but their stadium is fantastic!) Kauffman has a wonderful atmosphere, I can only describe it as being homey and very Midwest. They have craft beer stands, great food that isn't just the popcorn and hot dog variety, and these people get loud which is par for the course in the Midwest! B and I were throwing high fives around as the Royals were scoring home runs, it was so much fun!
Did I pick this particular baseball game because it also happened to have fireworks?
Maybe. Maybe not.
What can I say, I'm a sucker for sparkle ;)
Now, around these parts:
I did a bit of a redesign of my blog. Okay a lot of a redesign. I actually worked on it for over a week, tweaking it here and there.
I've added a search bar, re-wrote my about me page(view it here), and removed my advertisements. I removed them because, honestly? Y'all just aren't buying or interested. I'm not sure if that's just my blog, or blogs in general, but it truly doesn't matter because it's just fine with me! If you are interested in advertising, product reviews, or ever have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I also deleted about 30 posts(gasp!) that just were no longer relevant. It felt very freeing!
I'm planning on starting to document more of places I visit here in Kansas and other travels B and I make, as a bit of a travel guide and FAQ.
All my love,
