I Know I’ve Been MIA

I really don’t know why but I haven’t wanted to blog the last few weeks.  I am realizing that my blog is no longer about an affair or a broken heart. It’s taking me a little while to figure out what my new focus will be. I guess it will continue to be about me, my marriage, my life and things that interest me.  It just seems a little boring to be perfectly honest lol.

Then what do I do? Take down all the posts about the affair? Start posting pictures of myself? These are the questions that have been going through my mind. So while I mull all this over and get through the end of the school year, I guess I’m going to need a little time to figure out what’s next.

I do know that I want to continue blogging, I just don’t want to feel so guilty every time I need a break.  Does that make any sense?  I feel like I have abandoned my friends and fellow bloggers and in a way I guess I have.  For that I deeply apologize.  I hope you all know how much you mean to me.

I’m just going through a transition period in life and figuring out what’s next for me is something I am still working on.  Am I happy?  Most days absolutely, but not all and that’s okay.

I wanted to let you all know what I was thinking and to be assured that this is just a temporary break.  And if anyone has any suggestions, I am more than open to them.  Feel free to suggest away.  I hope you are all doing well and that you are going where the love is.

Love, Emma

Life is kind of like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay all night, some laugh with you, some laugh at you, and some show up really late. But in the end, after the fun, there are a few who stay to help you clean up the mess. And […]

I love this!  It’s absolutely true. While it can suck when some leave early, it’s also what makes life so amazing and wonderful.  I have really missed all my friends here and I do look forward to catch up with everyone.  Keep going where the love is!!!

 

I’m Back

I actually decided to stay an extra day down in Florida.  Instead of flying home Saturday night, I came home late Sunday night.  Of course my flight got delayed and I got home about 1 am and then was up at 6 am for school on Monday.  Crazy I know, but I just wanted one more day to relax and lay by the pool. I also wanted to go see my Aunt and Uncle one last time before I left.  They are getting older and my Aunt is in a Physical Rehab facility because she has trouble walking without assistance.

It’s hard to believe that just a few days ago, I was on this beach:

Naples is a beautiful part of Florida that I had never really spent much time in before.  It’s really gorgeous.  There is a lot of old money and old people LOL. Right off the beach road (5 minute drive from the condo) are all these spectacular mansions that are really fun to look at and take pictures of but I could not even imagine being wealthy enough to own one.

This one was a particular favorite of mine:

It was a really relaxing and enjoyable vacation.  We found a bunch of great thrift shops, did some shopping, went out to eat in a bunch of great restaurants, walked the beach, and drank pina coladas by the pool. My cousin and I went out to karaoke two nights (it’s huge in Florida) and had a ball!

I see now how much I really needed a break and realize how important it is to make the time to take more vacations.  It recharges your batteries and reminds you of all the beauty there is in the world.  I did miss my hubby very much and am glad to be home.  Next time, he is definitely coming with me 😉
