Farewell for Now

Hi all. It’s been a little while since I’ve posted, so I thought I should write an “official” post about my absence.

When I started this blog a few years ago, I was exploring different outlets of creativity in my free time. I had just started doing more crafts, and my day job was pretty settled and structured, enabling me to dedicate more hours to this place. Having a blog was something I always wanted to do, so I jumped right in and did it. It was also dead in the heart of winter, and let’s face it, everyone’s bored then. A blog seemed like a great idea.

I’ve changed a little bit since then, and quite honestly, I am not sure how this blog should change with me. What I was interested in then doesn’t hold my interest as much now, and I feel that I’ve gotten away from the creative outlets that I truly love with a passion (writing and photography). This blog became a chore instead of something I enjoy, and that’s where I put my foot down.

This means that I’ve decided to take a break from Life Is Sweet As A Peach. I won’t delete it just yet – there is a lot of content here that I spent hours creating, and I like having a place to keep my work. But I don’t think I will be updating much (if at all) in the future. Maybe I’ll come back once I figure out what direction I’d like to take it. I’ll never be a food blogger or a fashion blogger; and I don’t feel that I can be as personal as I want to be here, because of the way I originally set everything up.  I need a new vision and who knows when (if) that will come.

So thank you for your support over the past few years, for commenting and sharing posts, and reading up on this little corner of the world. Life Is Sweet As A Peach was a fun experiment for me to take on in my 20s, and I did truly enjoy it. I think, though, that my 30s are going to be about something a little different. I’m feeling more like living life than posting about it, and that private moments are sometimes the best of all.

Thank you again for sticking with me this long. I’ve appreciated every single person who I’ve come into contact with over this time, and I won’t forget y’all.

Be good to one another. Spread love instead of hate, and plant rosemary by your garden gate.

All my love –

Aubrey
