Adventure Blogging

With the business of "real life," this little corner of the internet seems to have taken on a new look.

The two of us have been so immersed in our full-time jobs, maintaining our apartment we so lovingly call "Chateau de Toews," and catching Z's when (&where) we can. & now blogging for the sake of blogging has become unimportant and a waste of time. Blogging about crafts, recipes, other topics that are shared for the sole purpose of gaining a following has grown tiresome and useless at this point in our lives. (Yes, I'll admit it -- I have done far more of this useless blogging than the hubs). While there was some value in it,(i.e. documenting goals such as 50 Recipes), we want to continue this blog in ways that inspire us, not strangers. We want to gain readers that are interested in our stories. We want to keep readers we value (Hi Mom!), instead of bore them with filler posts.
Recently I have found myself using the "mark as read" button on Bloglovin' more than I actually read posts anymore. The posts that I do read are ones that share more about the personal life of the blogger, more about their adventures, and I ignore the posts about "DIY this&that" or "How to Bake *insertdeliciousorobscurefooditem*.

& I totally think I (we) need to be publishing content that I would want to read.  
Now that is not to say there will not be posts about crafts & food - because, hey, we love crafts and food. But it is to say there will be more posts about adventures, life updates, anecdotes that inspire us, & other musings. We want this space, our space, to be consistent with who we are. We want to remain faithful to our brand (--even if doing that mean developing & redeveloping it with each new adventure).

Read more about that little word "adventure."
Pictures are beautiful out-takes of our Romanian adventure.
Proof that we value documenting: there are 104GB of videos&pictures of our 2 weeks in Romania.
