The Circle of Life

It's been a long  time for me since I've been mentally here on my blog, and I think the time away was good for me. I've grown a lot over this past year, but of course growth comes because of struggle. But maybe I'm ready again to put myself out in the open and share a piece of me.

I stopped blogging because I felt it start to become a negative force in my life, not my blog exactly, but the blogger sphere that surrounds this small part of the world I live in. I'll be honest and up front about it. I didn't (and still don't) like how "click-y" bloggers can be and always felt I wasn't good enough. I felt like I was in high school again and I was the kid who was never cool enough. 

Since I was going through my own struggles I figured eliminating the blog and my emotional attachment was right for me, and it was, and truthfully it was refreshing, but... Their are a couple things I have missed, the most important is just having an outlet for me to... well... be me, and share me stuff. Not in a selfish way, but in a releasing stress and fun sort of way. So maybe this here blog will have some spirit in it again and not like "here are some pictures I took, with no explanation about them".

And on a much happier not and not a very good segway to boot look whats back! The felt leaf headbands! Dang Straight! I've actually missed these babies and working with felt. Yesterday I wore one and had forgotten how much I love them, they are so light and stretchy it doesn't even feel like you are wearing one on your head. I'm going to brag a little but about how great of an invention this was/is for me. I had never seen a headband like this before, it was a true AH-HA moment for me.

Also your eyes do not deceive you, my hair is purple these days, and it's growing on me, I miss the pink, but the purple is coming much to my liking. 

Most Adoringly,
Caitlyn

  2. Love those headbands. And I feel the same way about the blogosphere. I used to have a real issue with it. Then when I decided to blog for me and me only, I finally felt comfortable writing again.

  4. Oh gosh, blogging is so very clique-y. I really try to branch out and not get in the habit of only commenting on certain blogs. Can't wait to read more posts from you! I need to update more frequently/meaningfully(?) as well. Great hair and headband!
