My blog is 5!

Today officially hits 5 years on this little blog of mine. I honestly cannot believe it! I've met some truly amazing friends, documented some highs and lows, and just had a really great time doing it all.

I'll be totally transparent with you guys here; with the start of our new business last year, I've really been thinking about spending less time here on My Kind of Yellow and more time on our business. This would mean I would still be blogging (just on a new platform) and it would be more photography related posts, with some personal stuff sprinkled throughout a few times a month.

Honestly nothing is official yet, but the older I get, the more time I want to spend only doing things that set my soul on fire (aka spending time with family, my passion of photography, reading, cooking, and connecting with people in genuine community)! Lately I've felt a little stress in keeping up with this blog because I "feel like I have to", and that's just silly. Life is too short for that! I'll tell you one thing that I do love though; connecting with each and every one of you! Whether it be through blogging, instagram, facebook, etc.! It's been so fun!

I'll always love writing, but I think potentially shifting my focus towards sharing the heart behind our business could be more beneficial for me and my sanity for now. I'll let you guys know if this is the direction I end up taking here soon, once I can wrap my brain around what it might look like, etc.! If the decision is to move to a new platform and focus more on photography (and still some personal/lifestyle posts a couple times a month because hey, there are no rules), I hope you'll still stop by to say hi!

For now, I'm spending today reading back on some of my favorite posts I've written, and preparing to celebrate my 26th birthday in a couple of days!  Thanks for always stopping by!
