A silent journey.

It feels nice to sit here and start typing this blog entry right now. Though, it's a little awkward being back after over 2 years, to be honest. This extremely long break wasn't planned at all, I promise. Things just started to keep me from being motivated enough to write a new blog post. Days and weeks went by, weeks turned into months and these months turned into years in the end. The blog has been on hiatus in the past but never this long.

Oh wow, it is so nerve wracking to post after such a long hiatus.

I did have reasons for not being here for such a long time. So many things happened, so much has changed but I do not want to turn my first blog post into this really long sob story and I thought I'd post about everything, but one step at a time.

Truth be told, things have been quite overwhelming for me for the last 2 years. The saddest and most heartbreaking part, for me, was when I had to say my Goodbyes to my Bailey boy on August 27th, 2016. It came as a huge shock and there are days where I still don't really get it that he's not here anymore and that he's not coming back again. He was with me for over 10 years, so it's still not easy. The pain and heartache is still there and, especially after losing my Mom 7 years ago I have learnt that grief stays with you forever. It may hurt less from time to time, but it only takes this one song, this one photo, this one smell...and the heartache starts all over again. I know that Bailey is in a better place now and I'm very grateful that he went so peacefully.



In the last couple of weeks and months I have received a bunch of very sweet e-mails from people who follow my blog and I'd like to thank you all for that. After all this long time you're still around and I really appreciate that. Thank you for inspiring me to finally blow the dust away and update RusticJenn again. ♡
