well hello…

Hey sweet friends. I’ve missed you. Its been a good ten months *off the blogging grid. Most of the things I hoped to accomplish or re-set in my life – I came close enough that life feels really good right now. We have settled back in to our Utah life, and in April I officially became cancer free!!! Over the past ten months I have learned a lot, changed a lot, and especially grown in areas I never expected as a parent. I am returning to blogging refreshed, re-inspired, balanced, and with some core ideas on how to make this space a bit more me.

As cliche as this may sound – embracing the fact that I am in my middle-aged years, I am starting to not only recognize but settle in to this season of my life with a fierce acceptance of time. I crave quality over quanity. I have a deeper affection towards truth, good hearts, loyal friends, simple happiness, nature, and love in all forms. I feel more alive.

You may notice those threads seep into my posts in coming months. I have a lot I would like to share and discuss with you, amongst this community. I had planned to return with a little bit more BANG. I hoped to re-launch with new branding, and more. Well, as we all know from this journey we are on – things get delayed. I could have waited, but it looks like my new design/site will re-launch in the new year, and until then I had ideas, posts, and thoughts I wanted to share. So, my site is not private anymore, but the new look will come soon.

I hope you have all been well. Is anyone reading blogs these days?

group hug!

*When choosing to take a break from blogging, i didn’t know if i would come back – it felt like a phase of my life that could have been complete. I wanted my life to be more private. You may realize my instagram account and other social media networks were private. If you were blocked or not able to follow me – please shoot me an email (jane(at)prolook(dot)com) or let me know in some way and I will as quickly as possible, make whatever change needed to allow you to follow along again. my apologies.
