Hello dear ones! It feels good to be back. Thank you for being patient and letting me have some time off. It was so nice to get away, take a step back, and breath for a minute but I didn’t realize how much I would miss it!
Writing this blog and organizing all that comes with it (emails, sponsors, social media, photography, fashion, etc.) has become a part of my everyday life. It’s almost cathartic in its own silly, small way; a chance to break free of the everyday doldrums we can sometimes get ourselves into and to find beauty in the ordinary. Even something as inconsequential as what outfit I wore can suddenly become interesting and fun when I find that one perfect phrase to describe what I’m feeling in my head. Without this blog to transpose some of my creativity onto, I caught myself catching up a notebook and scribbling away for a good thirty minutes or so, multiple times a day. It didn’t really matter what I wrote, or if the page made any sense as a standalone piece once I was finished. Just having the chance to let out everything I was thinking at once was pure bliss.
This blog has always been a place that I can share how I’m feeling, whatever that may be. When I decided to take some time off, it was mostly because I didn’t know where to go from here. I wanted to think about how much I was going to share of my life on this blog.
But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I’ve always shared whatever the heck I wanted here. I’m not going to allow myself to be hemmed in by others. Their thoughts and opinions don’t matter here; this is my space to share what I want. And I want people to read this blog and see a girl striving to find beauty in the every day, accepting with open arms every challenge, every moment life brings my way, because it’s the happy and the sad that makes life so wonderful.
I’m sure at this point you guys are thinking, “What is this crazy woman rambling on about?” Hey, there’s a reason why The Rambler is such a perfect name for me. But let’s get to it: I broke off my engagement last month. For many reasons that are a bit too painful and personal to talk about, so we’ll just keep it short and sweet and say we didn’t agree on important subjects.

So all in all, I’m doing fine. Life is beautiful. Painful moments happen. You get up, you start over, and you move on, you keep livin’. You buy those shoes because they’re cute and your legs look great in them and dang it you just broke off your engagement, you deserve them!
*sigh* it’s good to be back!
