abby-lately: all the photos and a life update

I’ve been pretty absent from this little corner of the internet and the most simple reason for that is, that I’ve been busy. Weddings, weekends away, visitors, a new position at my full time job, having a broken a computer – and getting a new one, holidays, turning 31 – theres been a lot going on and I haven’t really been able to catch my breath.

There are so many times in the past few months where I think to myself  “oh I want to do a blog post on this”, but then the days and weeks go by so fast and I never get around to it. I spend most of my days hunched over the computer so when I get a little break, I just feel like I need to step away from my desk, hang with Chris and Nellie, go to the beach – or to the gym. I’ve been feeling really guilty about neglecting this space of mine and at the same time, I feel like I’ve been neglecting my personal life as well. I haven’t been feeling present. Instead, I’ve been feeling anxious and stressed and like I’m failing at getting everything done. I think it’s time for me to step back from this for awhile. I still have some photos from a trip to Palm Springs I want to post and I definitely want to keep it open for things that are inspiring me or things that I think you might like or be interested in – but things will be pretty slow around here for a bit. Here’s where you can find me though:

Thank you so much to everyone who has followed along – especially from the beginning! You’ve meant so much to me and I would love to still connect with you on my other channels!

’til next time…

 PS. Scroll down for some photos that I’ve been meaning to post for the past few weeks…

PPS. And if I don’t get around to the Palm Springs photos – check Glitter Guide on Thursday 🙂

Happy Summer! Before I head out to finally get a new computer tomorrow (and hopefully be able to blog a bit more and share some more pictures), I thought I’d share a little edit with you. As you know the 4th of July is right around the corner and there are so many fun and affordable patriotic pieces to shop right now. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites under $100 for you, so it’s time to get your Independence day outfit ready so you can celebrate in style. Happy shopping!
