Hi friends! I know I’m stating the obvious, but I took a break from Blonde and Bailey. I wish I had a good excuse — I don’t. And the longer I stopped blogging, the harder it became to come back. I was honestly a little intimidated to start blogging again. I started focusing on what people would think, “Why does this girl start and stop this blog?” “Why is she…
