Loving Lately, vol. 7


I am so sorry for the continued, lengthy lapses between posts here. Whenever I think about the heyday of this blog (and blogging in general, it seems) a few years ago, I am awe-struck that I was able to somehow churn out 3-5 posts per week while working full-time. How? These days, I am writing like the wind, it just isn’t here. I’m making progress on my novel, every day, but I still feel guilty when I neglect this blog for weeks at a time. I do have things to share with you! I am still reading your blogs, too! I promise to be better at blogging. Maybe not as good as I used to be (seriously, where was I getting all that free time?!), but better. I miss you, kiddos.

    1. He bought me “French Lessons” for our first Christmas together, so he must have Peter Mayle books on standby, haha! xo

  1. I have the same sentiments; when I was in college, I worked as a hairstylist, went to school full-time, and interned at the museum. HOW? Where did I find enough time to ALSO start a blog!? But, even though I may not comment often, I’m reading. I miss seeing your posts 5 times a week, but I understand that life has a way of getting busy. I’m happy to hear that your book is coming along! That is something I look forward to reading one day! xo

    1. I think blogging in general was more “in focus” for everyone a few years ago, but also (and this is true for me, at least) the busier I am, the more I get accomplished! Working full-time forced me to carve out time for the fun hobbies I liked, and now I don’t necessarily need that balance/outlet, you know? Hoping to reclaim a little bit of regularity around here soon! Thank you for popping in, girly! I miss you! xoxo

  2. I feel ya on the blogging thing. I was working full-time as a lawyer at a big law firm and still managed to find time to post 4-5 times a week. Now? I struggle to get one or two up a week, if that. I think part of it is that I’m busy with other hobbies in my free time (or just don’t have free time, period, with a 14-month old to take care of). The other factor is that, rather than spending most of my “being social online” time blogging, I spend it on other social media outlets. The problem is, there’s so much more online to suck away your time than there was 3, 4, or 5 years ago but there are NOT more hours in the day!

    1. Well, you do have an adequate (and adorable!) excuse: that baby of yours! I hear those things can take up a lot of your time, haha ;) You’re right, though. Instagram wasn’t nearly as huge 4 years ago as it is now (was it even around then?) and that’s a much, much easier “mini blogging” tool if you’re short on time. How have we not added more hours in the day yet?? Who do we complain to about that?? xoxo

  3. Have you read anything by Peter Mayle before? I have read “A small village in Provence” (translated from Swedish, I´m nor sure about the exact title in English), about the village Bonnieux. (We even Went there after reading the book… as so many others :-) It´s easy to read and entertaining with all the prejuges/truths about the French caracter

    1. I have! I read “French Lessons” a few years ago, but have never read “A Year in Provence” (I think that’s the same book you read but with a slightly different title!). I love his writing, but have still never been to Provence :( One day hopefully soon! xoxo
