In a recent post I mentioned that I would share things after the fact instead of during. Things are easier to put into words when they’re not so raw. I’ve really struggled with how and if I should share what’s going on in my life right now here on the blog.
This has always been a blog without a distinct theme. It’s a food blog, it’s got clothes, its got cats, and a rabbit, and decorating, and vintagey things, and food politics and art, drinks, feminism, sewing, crochet, and photography all rolled up into one. Veganland’s theme is that it all comes from my head–it’s a lifestyle blog centering around my vegan life. It’s a way for me to document, network, and it is a source of overflowing happiness, joy, and expression for me. Ultimately, recent events will forever alter the content and format of posts, photos, and writing here on Veganland. The fact that my personal life has been so closely related to the style and content of my blog posts has made me realize that it’s best to go ahead and engage the changes and transitions I’m experiencing in my life right now.
So here it is: I’ve recently gone through a break up. My partner and I have split,I’m back in beautiful Carrboro for a while until things even out a bit, I get back on my feet and decide what the next step is going to be, and to land on my own two feet again.
Right now my life is an open blog entry, and I’ve never had too much trouble filling those spaces before, as you know just from reading this. But right now I don’t have my own space, my own kitchen, my own little vegan world to really share with you. So, as I mentioned in my last post, my posts are going to look very different for a while here. This blog has been such a part of my life for over a year and it has been a space that I’ve truly crafted and created for myself. It’s going to be one that continues to evolve and change with me, taking on various shapes as I do.
I can’t help but feel a little excited to see what this future holds for me and for the blog, even if vast parts of it are very uncertain. Right now, it’s one foot (and cat/rabbit paw) in front of the other, many deep breaths, lots of self care, rabbit and Leonor Fini snuggles, and taking things one day at a time.
Many thanks to you all for your kind wishes, remarks, and comments here and via Facebook and Twitter over the past several weeks. I give to you all my gratitude for the support and for bearing with me as things on Veganland get a bit of a shake up. Many thanks, and I am thrilled to see what the future for this little blog holds!
