The Social Break

February 20, 2020

I took a break. Not from my job, my family, or life, but a break from social media. Specifically, I took a break from facebook & blogging. I crazy love my job, but I love my family more. Life happens. Life has ups & downs. Life has seasons. A season emerged unexpected. Some things had to go. Those things were the blog & my facebook pages. I’ve been absent in those places for 16 months. When I muted them, I thought this would be a 6 week break, to focus on my family. 6 weeks turned into 16 months in the blink of an eye. In the midst of a difficult time for my family I was overwhelmed by the love of return clients and continued growth. In the age of social media, I was still working full time without being present on fb or my blog…. It overwhelmed me with gratefulness to the point of tears, often. I love my client base. I love my people. I am beyond blessed & grateful to get to do what I love. I am thankful for every single family that walks through my doors, new & old, & trusts me to capture what they hold most dear. At the risk of sounding cheesy, It’s an honor. A great honor. I am thankful for every single one of you who stuck with me through this season of being socially un-present and continued recommending me to your people. I am a blessed girl & I don’t take your love or business for granted. That being said, let me just tell you… when you’ve been through hell & back & back again… you question everything. Coming back after being absent so long is HARD and scary. I am a total people person, so that seems crazy, even to me, but none the less, coming back to these places I’ve been gone is hard. I am going to turn the fb page back on tomorrow… ok technically today because it’s after midnight. It’s a weird feeling to feel scared & crazy grateful at the same time. Go over to the fb page & give me some love because I need it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to each of my clients who have stuck with me through the years and remained during this hard season. So many of you prayed for us, lifted us, sent cards, sent emails, sent love…. and love is the #1 reason I do what I do. I like being the one loving on you guys, It’s my passion…. but being on the other end, having you love me & my family, I have no words for how much your love & loyalty mean to me. I am blessed.

    I love you,too! I love following you & watching your boys grow. I’m thankful social media has made us friends. Every now & then there’s someone I follow that everything they post I think- “that is my people”… you are definitely one of those people!
