"May"cation

So I've been a little MIA lately. I guess you could say I took a little maycation from
my blog. There's no real reason in particular. Everything in life is as good as I could ask for.
I guess I just took some time to focus on some other areas. I found myself immersed in the blog
world for a while. Everything I saw, I wanted and every blog I read was so creative that I began to 
question what in the world I was doing with my little blog. With wrapping up the end of the school year and everything I was feeling, I just needed a little time away. I needed time to just take it all in and find my creative side again. I enjoyed coming home, going to the gym, walking my dog, and cooking a few dinners with Ben. For a while there, I enjoyed the extra time where I "unplugged" for a little while in the evenings and tended to things I was neglecting. It didn't take long to miss Peach Gingham- after all, it is my creative outlet and a journal of events in my life. 

So here I am, refreshed and ready to start blogging again. I did some "blog-soul searching" and
found that the blogs that I love the most are not always the high fashion ones (which is what first pulled me into the blogger world). While I enjoy seeing the latest runway fashions, I can't really expect to live that life as a first grade teacher in Atlanta, Georgia. The blogs I enjoy the most are of those people just like you and me (Emily, Caitlin, and Ashley) who are making the most of every day, sharing realistic every day outfit inspiration, and give me a little glimpse into their daily lives.  

Here's a few small snaps of what I've been up to during my maycation...
(1) Getting ready for swimsuit season (2) Spending more time with my freckled (costs a millionaire dollars to take care of) friend (3) Purging the closet and selling a few things on Poshmark
(4) Cleaning out and moving my classroom

The final pictures explain my blog absence a little bit more. I have been teaching at a wonderful
school in Buckhead for the past two years, but decided to return back to my previous school
for next school year. There are many reasons behind this major decision, but ultimately 
I'm seeking an opportunity that is not available in my current school system. My commute will definitely increase. Work is no longer just around the corner. Change is hard, but good!
I really look forward to seeing colleagues that I haven't seen in a while and sharing the wedding
planning process with them will be really special.

So there ya go! Thanks for hanging in there during my absence. 
Be on the look out for some fun, new posts coming soon! I'll be spending 
the next three weeks at the beach, so I will have plenty of time to work on posts!
 In the meantime, you can find me on instagram- @taylorlawren_.
Happy Wednesday!!
