Life Lately...

Life Lately. 

amazing. confusing. thrilling. scary. saddening. adventure. love. content. upset. perfection. jumbled. 

I really am unsure of how to write this post as all the words I just listed are exactly what life has been lately. I will apologize in advance for the rambley wordiness that this post will be. 

So, life lately has been amazing. John and I spent a week up north with his family, saw his youngest brother graduate high school, ate our favorite foods, and then I got to road trip with his cousin/my best friend and his brother and his girlfriend. We also moved into our new house and it is 80% moved in and decorated. John's momma also came down and stayed with us for a long weekend so, we have been in our family time glory. 

Life lately has also been confusing. I don't know where I am going with SEBlogs. If you truly know me, you have probably picked up on the fact that I haven't been around the blog world much in the past three weeks. I took a very unplanned blogging break. I am not super happy about it but, I do recognize that it was probably much needed. I always preschedule posts 3-4 weeks out incase anything comes up. Between traveling, the move, and the company, I didn't want to be a slave to my laptop. So in that aspect, I am totally ok with the fact I have been checked out however, although I missed blogging and my bloggy-friends... it is kind of taking me a lot to get through this post. Like I want to blog but I don't know what I want to talk about anymore. Any advice for blogger burnout welcome! 

Life lately has also been saddening. I am truly at a loss as to what this world is coming to. Although I didn't personally know anyone who was at the Orlando nightclub, that is only an hour and a half away from our home. I also have a lot of friends in the LGBTQ community who could have been there and have face personal attacks in their own lives. It is disgusting to me that in 2016, people are still so narrow-minded and ignorant. 

Life lately has been an adventure. From getting married in March to buying a house in May and everything in between we are learning how to navigate life. 

Although life lately has been 50 shades of crazy, hopefully I can get back into a regular routine of blogging and getting all that needs to get done, done. Life is always going to be an adventure and although there are some rough spots, I can't help but love being on the ride! 

What do you do when you are feeling burnt out? 


  1. Wow. Lots going on in your life right now. I think it's great to take a little break when you're feeling burnt out. That's what I try to do. Or try to focus on something else.

  2. I'm sorry you're feeling burnt out, we all need a break. What makes you happiest blogging? Focus on that. I am so happy you're enjoying the house. Thinking of you!

  3. What a busy year you've had! I feel burnt out on everything at least once a month.... I usually just take a day to do something that makes me happy!

  4. Taking a break is perfectly fine! There are days when I have a scheduled post but I just don't feel like interacting in the blogging groups and then some days I do. Spend some time decorating that beautiful house of yours!!

  5. Sounds like you've had a lot going on! Take a break if you need it...the only person who really matters in your blog world is you!

  6. Aww babe! It's ok, I took a long blogging break as well because I felt like I was failing in the blogging world. Sometimes you have to take a step back to re-organize and plan. Success comes from failing many of times! (I hope that's true lol it's what I've been told) I love how happy you've been with your husband and adventure (I stalk you on SnapChat HAHA) I wish you nothing but the best, and happiness. In this disgusting world we need more people like YOU :) XoXo

  7. You got this! Congrats on your wedding! I dunno why I hadn't noticed, I have been following your IG. Blogging breaks are good, don't beat yourself up. Accept life on life's terms which is hard. You got this girl!

  8. Sometimes you've just gotta take a break! It surely helps with getting inspired again and all of that so no worries :)

    xoxo, Jenny

  9. Take one day at a time...being newly married and then moving into a new house (which is exciting but also stressful) is a lot on your plate on top of everything else :-)

  10. Hi Emily,
    I'm also feeling the blog burnout so I have only been blogging when I feel inspired which takes the pressure off a little. We both know that there is so much work involved just to promote one post and that alone can feel stressful. I am also from Orlando and truly saddened about what happened. My cousin goes to Pulse regularly and it just so happens that he was in Ft. Lauderdale that weekend however he took it pretty hard as many of us did. My son finished his freshman year of high school and that was stressful on both of us so now I plan to just hang out with him and not worry so much about my blog.
