When I started A Fancy Day I was full of hope and excitement as to where this blog would lead me, why else does one start a fashion blog if not for the hope of it one day "getting big"? Even if this is not the sole reason I started this blog it was definitely part of it. There have been huge successes since the start of this blog and the fact that there is a small handful of you who think I'm the slightest bit interesting is still mind blowing. But there have also been hardships and self brought sorrow since the start of this blog.
I use to love coming here everyday to blog but then after while it all became too much. I started to doubt myself, and the all the effort I as putting into blogging didn't seem worth it. I was here for the wrong reasons. So I took a break to take time to decide if I was going to even keep blogging. I hated all the self doubt that came with the knit picking I was doing over my body on a daily basis. The body that was created just for me and does the most amazing things, I was constantly finding flaw. That was not what I expected when I started this blog and was ready for a break.
But come to find out I missed blogging, I missed coming here everyday and sharing apart of myself, and writing all the silly stories. What I realized and guess I had known for awhile was that I was doing the blog for the wrong reasons. I was trying to please everyone but myself.
So this year I want to start fresh. I want to do this blog for me, maybe be a little more honest, and not worry about if my outfits are "blog worthy" as so many of us put it. The break was good but I've missed it, but I'm back on my own terms and hopefully the blog will be better because of it.
