Today is bittersweet for me. October 14th marks the 1 year anniversary of my very first blog post as “Born in Heels”. My little hobby has come a long way in the last 365 days. Throughout this time, I’ve learned a lot about blogging, made tons of new friends and contacts, brought on 2 contributors, and found new strengths within myself.
Here we are- One year later… While I would love to be celebrating with a giveaway or promotion, it is just the opposite. Today, I wanted to first explain my lengthy absence from my last post, and to inform you that Born in Heels is going on a break.
As most of you may already know, my husband and I are expecting our first baby in April. While I could not be more excited about the birth of our child, pregnancy has taken quite a toll on your girl, LB… Working a full time job, keeping up with my family, and maintaining some dissemblance of a social life; not to mention preparing for a child is in short, exhausting. Now, I know that many people do these things, and maybe more while they’re pregnant, but I find it highly unlikely that they also write a blog!
Pregnancy hormones are a VERY real thing, and mine make me feel like a lunatic about 90% of the time. I feel gross, I feel fat, I feel run down, I feel sad, I just feel terrible. So, putting together an outfit and stepping in front of a camera is pretty much the last thing I want to do- which is so unlike me.
Before my inbox gets flooded with emails about how I’m ungrateful, I want to be very clear: I AM excited and very grateful to have the opportunity to be a parent. Not everyone has this chance, and we are SO blessed. But, I can not control my chemical balance (well, IMbalance is more like it most of the time), and being pregnant is not easy for certain people. I happen to be one of them.
I’m going to be 110% real with you… I just can’t do it all, and I refuse to give you half-assed content for the sake of just posting something. So, as we prepare for our baby, Born in Heels is taking a break.
Thank you for your continued support and readership. I will be back soon!
