& then I stopped blogging

You may have noticed that this blog of mine has been really quiet lately. To those of you that have sent me a message/email to check in on me, thank you, I really appreciate it. It's a reminder of why I enjoyed blogging so much in the first place - because of all the wonderful blog friends I made. But, then life got in the way.

If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen the big news.

Kira on her first morning home
When we got back from the Dominican, we got an eight week old puppy! Kira is a Shepherd Rottweiler mix and the little love of my life.

Kira at 10 weeks
She's also a lot of work. My days are now spent training her, caring for her and spending (almost) every waking moment (where I'm not at work) with her (this is not to take away from all the hard work Andrew puts in with her. He spends a lot of time with her too). This all means less time to blog.

Have I missed blogging? Absolutely.

But something happened over the weekend. Friends came over. Food was ordered. I reached for my phone. My first thought was, "I need to take a picture of this so I can blog about it." Then, I stopped. I put my phone down. I didn't take a picture. Instead, I grabbed a plate and dug in. For once, I lived in the moment. Something I hadn't really understood, or done, before. I welcomed the moment.

Although I'll miss having a personal (and public) online diary where I record all the details of my weekly activities, I think it's time for me to take a step back.

This isn't to say I'm done blogging for good. Chances are, I'll be back with a new blog (eventually). But as of this moment, Let Life Be Like Music is no longer my outlet.

Don't worry, when I start a new blog, I'll announce it on Instagram so you'll know about it. You can also keep in contact with me at letlifebelikemusicblog@gmail.com.

But for now, I shall enjoy more moments.

  12. Blogland will miss ya, beautiful! But that doll needs ya more so train and love her and come back when she lets you :P. I, too, enjoy living my life and being in the moment rather than living it for the sake of documenting it--probably why my blog's been a tad quieter lately. But I wouldn't have it any other way!

    XO and take care!

  14. Awww. Such a cute pup. I have also been mostly missing from blogland the last few weeks. I started a second job and I just haven't been able to find a lot of time and energy to blog or even read blogs. I miss it though so hopefully I will find a balance soon. I totally understand what you mean about living in the moments as I have been experiencing this a lot more with my absense as well. Best of luck to you! See ya around Instagram and such. :)

  15. I've been taking a break too and I'm not entirely sure I'll come back. It's been nice not blogging. Not that I hate blogging or anything but I don't really miss it as much as I thought I would. I'm pretty sure if I do come back, it'll be with a different blog and different focus. We'll see. Hopefully I'll catch the announcement of your new blog! I still like reading them :)
