I have had 3 instagram pictures since Thursday...2 tweets since Friday, and a really lazy Monday blog post about my weekend, with no pictures to show for it...
All of this, makes me feel like a slacker, and that I am not living up to my "bloggly" duties.
Than I started thinking, of how much FUN P & I have had in the past 4 days. How much we have branched out from our little homebody habits and spent the entire weekend with couples we had not seen in weeks/months.I started to think of all the laughs we laughed, and the stories we told.
The beers we drank, and the food we enjoyed.
The college football chants we cheered, and the rivalries we fought.
and I realized how much I didn't need my phone to keep me busy, that for once I just let loose with not only just my friends, but my husband.
As a blogger our whole lives become an open book, and we enjoy sharing that life with our readers not just on the pages of our website, but on the outlooks of all social media. I enjoy taking pictures of my early morning Starbucks, my new favorite find from the mall, my adorable puppies, our fun date night ideas, and everything in between.
Although, sometimes we need those weekends where the pictures are off, the tweets are silent, and it's just life, undocumented. It's great to have those memories that the only way we will ever remember them are to open up our little treasure box of memories in our minds.
I have spent countless nights in front of my computer, before heading to bed at midnight. Barley eating dinner with my husband before kissing him goodnight and falling asleep. I have spent date nights and family dinners peaking at my phone to reply to an email or a text and not fully enjoying the company I have in front of me, but not anymore.
Time management has become my best friend, and sometimes my worst enemy. Between a 9-5 job, quality time with my family, product reviews, sponsorships, date nights, keeping up with other blogs, catching up on instagram, retweeting hour old tweets, and everything else in between has become my life.
I honestly, LOVE where I have come with my blog, the friends I have made, and the joy that has been brought to my life. I could never explain my gratitude in words...
but undocumented weekends such as this last one will be a necessity in my future.
It's time I sit back, and relax.
Just live life, and see that we don't have to have pictures to tell an amazing story.
Some are best told from the heart, and some of our favorite pictures are the ones we hold inside.
Just as this post does, some will only hold words.
As the writer of this blog, it is up to me, to paint the pictures you are hoping to see.
