Hello, It's Me

Lumière Lens, red berries, california plants

I was wondering if after all these years, you'd like to meet, to go ov --

Alright, serenade over because, trust, none of you will want to hear my singing caterwauling! 

Hello, lovelies, it's been a hot minute since I've been on Lumière & Lens.  I've been MIA for a few weeks now and because the Internet is fickle, I've been unfollowed, disengaged, etc.  It's fair, I suppose, for while I've been silently reading your blogs I've not been super active with engaging lately, either.  For the few of you who have stuck around this little space, thanks! I appreciate it.  

So, what's been happening?  In the past few weeks, my head space has been occupied with work, personal things, and feeling under the weather, none of which put me in a great place to want to blog.  They don't call it the blues, for nothing, you know?  I will not use this blog to whinge so if you're really curious, shoot me a message somewhere and I'll be happy to talk.  The important thing is that I want this to be an authentic space.  I don't want to produce content when my head/heart isn't in it, so I took a little break.  Sometimes, we all need that.

Anyways, L&L will be back to regularly scheduled programming (and return of engagement on your posts!) this week.  I'll be catching up on all I've missed.  If you happen to come around here, leave links to your posts or whatever you think is interesting in the comments.  Hope you stick around!

  1. I hope you are doing ok. It's good to take a break if you are not feeling 100%. I've been so unmotivated to write lately and I'm just letting it go. Been working so much lately that I spend my free time sleeping.

  2. I hope that you feel better soon and that everything is okay :) Everyone I follow does blogging as a hobby so naturally life gets busy and that takes priority!

  3. Take all the time you need! That's important! I can definitely understand how "the blues" get in the way of blogging. I hope you'll feel better soon.

  4. Hope you've got some down time over the weekend with the wedding (?)! You looked fab as usual, of course :) I've been feeling the same way too - but perhaps due to my holiday! - it'll be a bit hard getting back into the swing of things! Fingers crossed!
