| Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has the best ties |
I’ve been absent this week. I’ve been struggling mightily about what to blog about. A Valentine’s Day Gift Guide seems pretty trivial in light of the super charged political climate in this great country of ours. Every time I sat down to blog, all I wanted to do was spew. And, I made a promise to myself not to talk about politics on this blog. So, I just want to say for the record OMG WTF! I feel like I’ve been living in an (cough, cough) alternate universe.
I’ve really missed being a blogger this week. Instead, I became a political junkie. I usually ban myself from my iPhone in the evening. But it turned into an addiction as I trolled every real news source till late into the evening. I’ve been paying for my late nights and homemade coffee doesn’t do the trick in the morning. Recently, Starbucks coffee is the best to help me from hitting a wall.
With all the drama that has been going on, I have learned something interesting this week. Blogging is a creative art, like painting a picture. If I’m not feeling it, I’m not going to do it. I would rather skip a day or two than post something I haven’t put my heart into. Speaking of hearts, I’ll be back on Monday morning with a red-hot Valentine’s Day Gift Guide you are sure to love. I hope that you take some time for yourself this weekend xo
