coming out of hiding.

10 things to explain my absence:

1. this perfromance took just about every second of every day, there for awhile.
2. a lovely girls trip to san francisco. rain or shine- we know how to shop, eat and have a good laugh.
3. midge's visit that was long, but still not long enough. mother's are the best visitors, especially when she's your best friend, too.
4. indulged in the time to sleep- or rather caught up on the lack of sleep from the last busy month.
5. lovebird's spring break seemed to have distracted me with kisses, a gossip girl marathon, an adventure or two, a temple trip and an unusual amount of heart to heart talks.
6. truthfully, i needed a slight break from technology. i did the whole "unplug" thing for a little while. it was beyond refreshing. instead, i've been on a big reading kick.
7.  san francisco, again. and again. we have literally been up there every weekend for the last two months. {now, i'm trying to convince lovebird to move up there. help me please!}
8. mowgli is quite possibly been my biggest distraction. his need for attention has grown rapidly. but, i don't mind; days at the dog park, walks around the block and never ending games of fetch- i love them just as much as he does.
9. teaching and then more teaching. between teaching piano and pilates, my days seem packed. however, i wouldn't want to be doing anything else. i love it.
10. my mind has been somewhere else lately, trying to make sense of the future and the unknown. while it's been slightly exhausting and stressful, it leaves me eager and excited to see what's next.

i'm so sorry to have been gone for what-feels-like forever.
life seems to happen so fast, and it takes us with it sometimes.
i'm back and here to stay.
at least for awhile.

tell me what i've missed. catch me up, pretty please. 


  1. yes, move to sf so you can be by me.
    well we probably won't live in the city itself, i just want you to be near me.
    and sounds like a good break. i think i might take one.
    excited to live by you soon!


  2. i think it is great to unplug for a bit-i am trying to do 24 hours a week of no facebook/emails etc...not always possible. but just to give it a break...i do get sick of screens.welcome welcome

  3. I die over all your ballet pictures - they are gorgeous!!

  4. I need to unplug too. Although I also have been doing some reading and zoomed through two books real quick recently, so that felt good! Did you read anything really great??

  5. You are darling as always...these are all good reasons to be distracted, since they are the important things! Sad we didn't get to see you on all those SF visits...and teaching piano + Pilates? Love that! I want to be in your Pilates class!! Xo

  6. That picture is a dream! You are one busy, talented girl.

  7. you are so busy girl! but i'm glad you are enjoying it :) and going tech-free is definitely refreshing! kudos to you.
