You cant carry it with you if you want to survive...

Florence + The Machine  - Dog Days Are Over
And I never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had and what was left after that too
Happiness hit her like a bullet in the head
Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that

Ok, so I'm taking a break from my regular posts. I just don't have the energy or the inspiration right now so I think it's best to not force myself and try to take a little time and take care of me, and judging from your comments yesterday you all agree, and I appreciate that. I do have a lot on my mind lately though - songs, lyrics, little things that are getting me through the day right now, so for the next few days I think I'll share things like that. We'll see how it goes.

Today I'm loving... the other night Jared picked up something for dinner that he doesn't even like because I wanted it. Sure it was just a little thing, but it made me happy. What's one thing you're loving today?

I think it's a great idea to just post things that inspire you and are getting you through the day lately. I'll keep reading. That song is awesome. Her voice touches me for some reason.

Katie my dear just keep on hangin' in there. I don't care what you write, it's always entertaining and/or thoughtful. Just take care of yourself.

Tonight I was thankful that the chef used a jar of capers in some sauce he whipped up for a bowl of gluten-free pasta. It really is the little things.

Aww, that's really nice of Jared. Those are the little things that totally make my day too. I hope you feel better today! Today I'm loving the fact that I can listen to Christmas music and not feel (too) guilty about it because Halloween is behind us. :)

Standing O for Jared! I'm loving that I managed to vote despite a very wiggly and loud toddler. HA!

Stacey said...

Aww, that's definitely more than just a small thing that Jared did. Very sweet of him indeed. I think you already know what i'm loving today and will be loving for a while-hehe! Anyway, take care of yourself and post whatever the heck you want-we'll still read it!:-)

Debby said...

Ugh.. writer's block... we all get stuck! How sweet was that of Jared?! It is the little things. xo

Jess said...

What a sweet gesture by Jared! I am always thankful when my hubby watches my girlie tv shows because he wants to spend time with me! I know he doesn't really like Project Runway or Gossip Girl, but he endures them for me. Such a little thing, but means the world to me!!

Hang in there sweetie. I'm thinking about you ;)

Leah said...

We all do get our share of bloggers block... hope you get your inspiration back soon. Take care always!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

i don't have sound so I can't watch the video but I agree that you should blog about what inspires you if you're struggling. Besides, taht's how the blog becomes yours :) And yes, that's very sweet of Jared. It is the little things... for sure, for sure. I'm loving the rain right now, it's POURING so it's cozy inside as a result.

style'n said...

sounds like you got yourself a nice guy...a keeper :)
I totally know what you mean about being inspired sometimes! I have a work meeting next week so I might have to take a break. Hope you are feeling better and take care! naina

I think blogging is one of those things that goes in peaks and valleys. Some weeks you have a ton of stuff you're dying to post about and other weeks...not so much. Take the time you need. "Real life" obviously always comes first. xo

Honestly, today what I'm really loving is my lunch. lol

And how about adding some more pics? I’m not trying to offend anyone, site is really great. Just as I’ve heard visitors acquire info much more efficient when there are some helpful pics.

A break is a very good idea. I've done so myself last year and never regretted it. Remember, as much as we all love your blog, you have to do it for yourself... For your own enjoyment. So take your time and we'll be waiting here! :)

Taj Acosta said...

That is sweet that Jared picked up dinner of something he doesn't even like! My husband does things like that for me that I think I take for granted sometimes. I'm loving my puppies right now, I don't know why but I love laying in the floor with them! They are so sweet. I hope your day is going good and you are feeling a little better each moment. xoxo -Taj
