weekend review: note to self

This weekend I remembered that living is more important than blogging.

And that not every weekend can (or should) be filled with perfectly balanced and perfectly photographed meals.

Rather, some weekends should be filled with slow morning walks, cold mid-afternoon beers, and simple undocumented food.

Note to self: Live first. Blog second.

  1. I couldn't agree more! Sometimes I just have to unplug and stop dragging my camera out everytime we sit down at a table ;)

  2. That's so necessary. Blogging is awesome but it shouldn't become the central focus of your life. Enjoying the fun without feeling the need to whip out the camera or craft a witty post is totally crucial.

  6. Good on ya! I hear you 100%. I am slowly getting to that place where I am feeling like 5 blogs a week is a lot. I think I might cut back soon. Glad you have such great perspective!

    1. 5 blogs a week is a lot. i did that at the beginning, and cut back to 4 (i usually take friday and weekends off). but, i think it is all up to the person and the week and the day and the hour. taking it one day at a time...is all we can do...

  7. Darn right! Nothing like a short, long or week-long weekend off from blogging ;D It should always be fun, not a chore, and like you say, life first!
