There has never been a more true statement ya'll. I just spent a week of my life at an insanely beneficial but mentally draining corporate training. I love that my company invests in their employees and continuously helps us to grow. I do have to say that while I am away at these things I miss my usual routine, my boys, and own bed. I also seriously miss having time for my side hustle... aka Crohnically Blonde!
Distance makes the heart grow fonder though, right? A week away had me itching to post and also had me brainstorming some awesome ideas for content in my down time. I used to feel really guilty when I had to do something for work that caused me to take a break from blogging but now I have just come to terms with the fact that this isn't my full time job. I love my 9 to 5 (even though it usually ends up being a 7:30-6:30 most days) and I love this in a different way. If it weren't for my job, I wouldn't have the funds to support Crohnically Blonde. So, yes; I do have to pause sometimes and hyper focus on my career but in the end it all comes full circle.
To all the other ladies working it in their careers AND killing it in their side hustle. CHEERS TO YOU.
Here are a few links to some serious goodness I came across this week that I wanted to share with you all:

Mental health advocate.
Sharing my raw and real journey through motherhood and navigating Crohn’s Disease. CrohnicallyBlonde is a place where I serve up my unfiltered commentary on chronic illness, mental health, pregnancy, and motherhood alongside lighter lifestyle content like beauty product reviews, travel tips, and book recommendations. My hope is that by authentically sharing my story I can help others going through similar situations not feel so alone and maybe even laugh along with me.
