surprise! #notdead

Sherlock was going to try this technique before the whole french waiter routine.:
couldn't resist.
So,  it's been a little while. I've been scrolling through Bloglovin', watching the unread post list grow larger and larger, and I've been missing this awesome community, but guys.

I am so, so, so SO busy.

Between university life (all of the memes out there? Accurate) and work and trying to have some semblance of a social life and weekend retreats with my church and finding the time to make muffins every now and again, PLUS midterms (I have one on Monday) and essays and readings.... my dear little blog has slipped to the bottom of my priority list. And at least for a little while, I'm afraid that's where it will have to stay. Thinking about blogging has become a source of stress, just one more think on my to-do list that never actually gets done... and I never want blogging to be about guilt. So, this isn't goodbye, or even "see you later." This is just a post to let you know why I've been a little more absent of late, and why you're probably not going to see a multitude of posts from me in the next few weeks. I'm not going anywhere... and I fully intend to post LOTS over the Christmas holidays, but for the next few weeks, I'm giving myself the freedom to step back. (Hopefully, this will give me the time to hang around YOUR lovely blogs a little more often!)

So, with that off my chest... how's life? I seriously did miss all of you... and once these exams are out of the way, I'm looking forward to updating you on my first semester of school! 

Lately I've been...

...drinking homemade peppermint hot chocolate! (and thinking about Christmas!!)
...watching the Musketeers (Hannah and I are being very disciplined and trying to save it as long as we can!)
...reading Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd (such a gem of a series, 100% reccomend)
...studying with colour-coded notes (yay for organization!!)
... listening lots to this lovely album

Lots of love to all!! See you again soon.


  1. Girl, this is so relatable, you have no idea. I've just starting trying to get back into the swing of blogging while at college/university too. I know it's difficult to find time in your busy schedule, especially when you're sick of writing after writing a million papers. All we can do is our best. I will always love your blog and will wait until you're back to post. :) (also, the memes are so so accurate it's scary!)

  2. It is good to hear from you. I totally understand. My blog is on back burner mode at the minute as well. But we shall resurrect during christmas holidays! I am looking forward to hearing more from you!

  3. Good luck on your midterms! I'm counting down the days till winter break too.

  4. OMG IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU'VE BEEN SO BUSY. *sends you waffles to calm you* Also I can totally relate. Things have been absolutely crazy around here lately too. EEEEEP. I shall always and forever love your blog. <3


  5. I'VE MISSED YOU!!! I feel you though- life is so crazy lately. I HOPE YOU'RE HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME THROUGHOUT THE CRAZINESS!

  6. Right?? Seriously my life has been so hectic with classes and life stuff and my bloglovin has been on 99= unread for way too long.
    I'm finally catching up and glad to see a post from you!

  7. I've missed reading your blog posts! But I completely get it. School basically drains away all your time and your life source, so it's virtually impossible to stay fully involved in the bloggy world. But it's great anyways, isn't it? I can't wait for more posts over the holidays.
    Best wishes!

    I swear I could have written this. Notice how you wrote this post weeks ago and I am JUST NOW reading and commenting on it. Life has been CRAZY! But crazy good. Looking forward to your posts in the future! And homemade peppermint hot chocolate sounds like a wonderful, warm hug. :D <3

  9. Please forgive me. -SH

    Exactly what it feels like to come back to your blog after a hiatus XD


Comments from you make my day! ♥ True story.
