It’s been a minute since I posted here.
I could tell you that I traveled the world, worked on some big secret project, or had another baby. All sound like exciting, legitimate reasons for disappearing for 5 months.
But the truth is that I needed a break from all the noise.
We live in a world of constant notifications, influx of information, posts, tweets, videos, ads, emails, and texts.
Our lives are spent looking at screens, whether we’re working on a computer, watching TV, or staring at our smartphones for an average of 5.5 hours a day (that’s a true statistic, by the way).
We’re “digitally caffeinated,” wired on the messages, entertainment, and information that are always at our fingertips.
And as a business owner I felt the pressure of not only keeping up with the noise, but contributing to it.
With the increasingly louder “hum” of the digital world building in the background, I was also trying to figure out what life looked like not only as a business owner, but as a new mom and a pastor’s wife.
I needed time to get my priorities in order, find a new rhythm, and gain some clarity about what Elle & Company would look like in this new season.
So I went dark.
