Because Sometimes You Need to Step Back to Gain Perspective

by Katie on January 7, 2018

I’m sure it didn’t go unnoticed that my presence on the blog during the holidays was fairly nonexistent. That being said, it was not my intention to step away without any sort of notice or update. However, sometimes life comes at us faster than we can process it.

This year has been chock full of unexpected moments for our family. And although we’ve weathered each storm with the support of faith, friends, and family, it’s been a tougher year than I had anticipated.

By the time Thanksgiving rolled around, I knew I needed to take some away from the busyness of life….time to hang out with my kids and my husband, time to watch movies and munch on popcorn, time to make Christmas cookies, and time to just be silly. Time to just be.

And that time away from my regular routine was very healing for my soul. It reminded me that it’s essential to slow down and to remember that life is not a sprint, but rather, a marathon, and that the moments must be cherished as they unfold.

While the time away was so very needed, I have missed sharing on this platform, and I look forward to sharing deals, promotions, and freebies once again. I truly appreciate the patience of all my readers during this time of trying to find balance for myself and for my family. Thank you!

Thank you for posting – I was very curious as to what might be going on and am glad to see the update. I very much enjoy your posts and simple money saving tips! Life does get crazy at times and taking time to step back and refocus and spend more time with family is always a good idea.

Katie You are one of the most consistent “long time” bloggers out there. I am sorry life was rough, but am glad you enjoyed time with your family. God bless you (and welcome back!)
