Happy Monday friends! AND Happy May! I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I certainly did! I can not believe it is May. NOT that I am complaining. I am super excited for it to be May, (how many times can I actually SAY May?!?!) because it means that summer is JUST around the corner if it isn’t here already! Which, while the temperatures might say otherwise, we have had a few days that have been warmer then warm, I even have wonky tan lines to show for it.
And what is more, I had my first official beach day!
Why do I say official?
I know, I know, y’all are like you go to the beach on the daily it seems like. But there is a very big difference going to snap pictures and walk, and maybe sit for a couple minutes on the rocks, and making a day of it. Last weekend I made a DAY of it. I donned a bathing suit, (which I haven’t worn one since September!) lathered up on the sunscreen, laid out a towel, and soaked up the rays. It was heavenly! Maine opened up their beaches, and I was not the only one who took advantage of them. I think it is going to be a busy season and I am so ready for it.
Buh-Bye April Blues
After April, I feel like I need May. Not going to lie, April was mentally, emotionally, and physically tough. Pretty much all the things. Anything that could go wrong, felt like it did go wrong. I had to take more then one social media break, not just because I didn’t want to bring anyone down, but creativity wise I just was not feeling it, which honestly is a very sucky and defeating feeling, that turns into a vicious cycle.
Thankfully April did end much better then it began so I can’t begrudge that. And I am feeling that spark again. I might be putting to much pressure on May (though seriously anything is an improvement to April) but I have high hopes. I am FINALLY taking a trip and I have some exciting collaborations and projects I am working on with some pretty amazing people.
It is hard, and it sucks, but sometimes you have to keep pushing yourself until you break that wall down. It will break as long as you have the courage and strength to do it yourself. Sending you all so much love! <3
How have you been? DO you have any exciting plans for May?
