Back To Blogging - Life Update

Well well well, it's been a while since I've blogged on here. A solid 2 months, if I recall, I did say I'd only be gone for a month but then life happened.

Not that I feel the need to explain myself but I do want to keep a little record for myself to look back on why I've had such a gap in my personal blogging journey.

It's a bit self explanatory really, if you've started following me through my joint blogs: foodandbaker / foodandbakertravels, then you'd know blogging is nothing new to me but then again, if you're a blogger yourself you'd know that blogging itself is a full time job and trying to juggle 3 blogs and all its socials and having a full time job was just a tad bit too much for me. Then naturally this third blog became a chore and it started to feel very forced, so I decided to give myself a little break.

I told myself one month as I had many posts drafted for when I would have started my travels, with is a month ago now but then I just got too busy with handling all of that and a lot had changed since then.

I've quit my job, my job for nearly 3 years, I've personally wanted to quit for a while as it's not my passion and I felt I was still to young to settle into a job I didn't love, don't get me wrong, it was a terrible job and the people were so lovely but it just wasn't the career field I was looking to stay in and travelling for over a month was another factor in leaving and just seemed like killing two birds with one stone.

For the longest time I've wanted to travel the world, just like most people, I just wanted to see more and experience what the rest of the world had to offer. I've even considered travelling solo and if you know me, that's a big statement for me to make but luckily I don't have to do it alone and I didn't.

As I am writing this I am currently just over half way through my month long travels in Europe with the love of life, who I share the food and travel blogs with. We are truly blessed to be where we are and without our hard work with our joint blogs and socials we wouldn't have be able to exactly do everything we've done already.

When we go back to London Town, James would only have about a month left living in London before heading back to Sheffield for his last year of university and well, I don't have a plan as of yet. Am I worried? A little, but I have hope that I'll find something bigger and better for me out there.

Long story short, I've never been one to not know what's next but things have changed, I've changed and it's all for the better. I'm hoping to get back into my personal blogging and I'll start with one post a week - I've already got some posts in mind and some drafted from before so I hope you've enjoyed this little update and I hope you'll stick with me through this journey!

It's so good to see you blogging again! Sometimes I think you just need some space away from blogging when it becomes to much. I'm so happy to see your enjoying your travels and I can't believe you're halfway through already. Can't wait to see what content you create here x

Honestly Jess, I have no idea how you manage to juggle so much. You're so good at blogging, being active on social media and showing appreciation to other people and their blog that it amazes me how you can do all of it at once; LITERALLY QUEEN OF MULTI-TASKING.
I'm so so happy you're back though, your posts have always got me so damn interested and given me the feels. I'm sure other people also feel the same.

Also, I'm so happy your goals/dreams of travelling have come true. You and James both deserve this opportunity, we all know how hard you both work.
