Today was my birthday. 29. 29 years o' age.
Wow. I need to process that.
So much is happening right now that life is an emotional roller coaster. I'm high on creativity and dreams of success and uber happiness and the come crashing down with G force to stress city. There's no time to think. Just do. I think I've gained 10-15 lbs in stress and road trip weight. Matt's started his PhD (did I mention stress) and Rowan has started school. Mae-mae up there is 16lbs now and almost crawling. I'm starting a new job as a photographer for a maternity studio and investing in a new blog venture.
I'm seeking balance and unfortunately that means letting some things go. I've been absent from this space in order to make room to run my business and not loose my mind. It's been hard because I miss you and I miss getting everything out in to the blogging world, but it was really helpful. During this time away I've reevaluated and challenged myself to consider what I'm writing about and why I'm writing. I felt stuck. I felt stalled. So I've decided Mama Haze will be coming to a close in order to make room for a bigger project, one I can grow with and build community with, which has always been my goal with blogging whether I knew it or not. I'll be checking in here every once and while and finishing out in December. In January, I'll be launching a new project called N O U R I S H (working title) with a dear friend. I'm hoping to be behind the scenes in the beginning, but I'm already getting excited and creating content. Are you surprised? ANyway, it's going to be really great and I hope you'll move with me to that new space. Thank you for sticking it out with me here and I look forward to finishing out Mama Haze with you. It's been a really important and special place for me to grow and for that I am so grateful.
