this photo could be slightly deceiving. I am not pregnant. It’s a period baby. So basically the opposite of a baby.
So I obviously am having a thing for burgundy and black for fall, or are we still calling it oxblood? I hope not.
It was actually cool enough the other evening to wear this and not sweat; success.
Life Update: Our transition back to the US has been a slow and steady one.
I am still trying to find my groove with this space, now that it is no longer an expat blog, and in life in general.
I am really trying to decipher between what I feel like I should be doing, and what I think other people feel I should be doing.
Then there is the comparing.
Comparing can be such a nasty thing, especially in a time where we have seamlessly amalgamated everyday life and social media.
It is hard to not constantly compare yourself to others’ filtered lives. I know I am not the only one that feels this way, so for those that have these same struggles, I encourage you to take breaks. Don’t go on instagram for a few days, don’t look on pinterest, facebook, or blogs.
Sometimes we are our own worst enemy with masochistic tendencies. It hurts, but we do it anyway. I have been taking more breaks, I’ll upload to instagram, but I might not sit and scroll through the photos every time, so I get my fix without feeling depressed for the next hour. I know this isn’t a new concept, but I think sometimes we need to be reminded that it’s okay to take a step back, and that we all struggle to find a happy medium between being active online, and knowing when being present in “real” life is better for us.
