"What happened with your blog? It's like you don't even try anymore."
Ouch. It hurt mostly because it's true. I've been thinking about this post for a month now (considering the last time I posted was two months ago) -- how do I explain why I haven't been blogging? I have 10+ pieces of furniture to blog about so really there's no excuse. Even so, here's a few updates on things that have happened in my life:
1. I was promoted to store manger at Hodge Podge -- the antique store where I've worked for 2.5 years and have my craft and furniture booth. It has been stressful and awesome all at the same time. I feel like it's definitely stretching me and making me grow, and I'm thankful to have a job I love!
2. Crystal Padilla Music (I sing background vocals in the band) recorded and released a new album -- Beauty in the Waiting.
It has finally released on iTunes so check it out! We had our album release party last weekend (October 10th) and it was incredibleeeee.
My family even surprised me and drove through the night from Florida to be there.
I'm so excited to see what God does through this album and the doors He will open this year. Music is my first love, so it overwhelms my heart with thankfulness to be a part of this ministry.
3. My furniture business has been "booming." I'm getting more custom orders -- almost to the point where I can't keep up with them, but that's a great problem to have!
So, all of this to say, my life has been crazy. At the end of the day, I guess I got lazy with my blog because it was the only thing in my life that I could actually say "no" to and put on hold for a moment.
Forgive me? I want to have a new post up sometime this week and then hopefully I'll be back into the swing of things!
For all of the bloggers out there -- do you ever need a blogging break? What helps you get back into it?
