While taking a break from blogging, I have been doing all sorts of things I love. Some old things and some new!
Before taking my break, I finally got the courage to get the bangs I have longed for for so long. I was hesitant to do it because for most of my life I had bangs but longed for hair that was all one length. When I finally managed to grow out my bangs, I swore I would never go back. After ten years without them, I dared to want them again.
You be the judge. Bangs or not?
Right now, I’m going WITH bangs. I know eventually I’ll get bored and want my all-one-length hair back but until then I’m happy.
So besides playing around with my hair, hubby and I have been spending our free time playing with our camera and new lenses. We’ve been fiddling around with settings, aperture, lighting, shutter speeds and all that camera jazz. Not only have we learned a lot about photography, we’ve also had fun taking photos of everything imaginable.
I actually entered the above picture into a photo contest via Silvia Photography. Sending out a big thank you to all the bloggy friends who so kindly LIKED her photo on my Facebook page. Last time I checked, 390+ people had already liked it. We will know if we win on May 1st of this year. Keeping our fingers crossed!
Tulips hold sentimental value because they are the flower we used on our wedding day via the bridesmaid bouquets and the groomsmen boutonnieres. They are also the local flower of the area where we married. ♥
Last but not least, hubby and I have enjoyed watching more television together.
If we’re not watching re-runs of The Big Bang Theory, we’ve been watching New Girl and the last season of Being Erica.
Blogging breaks are great! Once I’m gone, it’s really hard to come back. I even contemplate giving it up completely. Then I think about what that would mean and I quickly shake off the thought.
I love writing.
I love reading blogs.
I’ve missed doing the social media thing with my bloggy and Twitter friends.
So I’m back!
What kinds of things do you do and enjoy when you’re on a blogging break?
