VLOG // getting out of a funk

The past couple of months have been… weird, if I’m being honest. A big move (not to mention life change #marriage) coupled with a TON of back-to-back travel throughout October/November has left me feeling pretty exhausted and very much uninspired.

Some of you may have had no idea, but some of you may have noticed in the amount of content I’ve been creating as of late. I haven’t been feeling the same surge of excitement and creativity towards this space that I usually do, and as I’ve spent time processing everything and figuring out why, I’m realizing it’s because I’ve taken the past couple of months a little too far. I love the go-go-go lifestyle, and didn’t realize what I really needed was to slow things down and rest this season!

Can anyone relate?

So, this past Sunday, I decided to do something incredibly random. What, you might ask? VLOG! Andrew and I had a pretty unusual but much needed and restful Sunday this weekend, and I decided to document it in an effort to get myself out of the creative rut I’ve been in. My thought process? Perhaps shooting the very normal and un-glamorous would break me out of this “writers block” I’ve been experiencing! Because if I’m honest, I constantly feel the pressure to create beautiful, lovely, picture-perfect content. And I want to be able to let go of that from time to time and just get real.

A full, wonderful day and a lot of iPhone storage space later, I had not only captured my first VLOG here in Florida, but I’d also managed to reignite my love for this job and creating. Sometimes it takes doing something a little different to get you out of a funk!

So, friends, I hope you enjoy this very real, very personal, very unfiltered look at a typical, unusual, perfect Sunday here in Gainesville, Florida. As always, don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube Channel if you haven’t yet!

Did I run into Macklemore while taking blog photos? I guess you’ll have to watch the video to see. :)

Now that I’ve shared something that helped me get out of the creative rut I’ve been in, I’d love to know something. What do you do when you find yourself in a funk?

Love from the Sunshine State,


Join in on the fun!

    Thanks Lonestar! This was really fun and upbeat and REAL, which I think is so important. Most of life is “every day life” and I actually think this video was a nice reminder that life is not picture perfect. It certainly made me feel good to know that I am not the only person with a room full of clothes that need to be washed, hung up, folded etc.! I have realized myself that the main drawback with loving clothes so much is that they do pile up! I like how you cheerfully went about picking them up! That’s inspiring! If you do a whole video on tackling one’s clothing pile I will watch it!
    On another note, I know you and Andrew will be so glad you made this video years from now, capturing your everyday life as newlyweds.
