Blogging Around the Holidays

Breakfast on Christmas Morning.
That's a sour cream, chive, and feta scone in front. Yep.

I hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas. I'll be honest, blogging around the holidays is strange. I usually write what's in my heart, but around this time my soul is so full and happy, pinning it down in words is like asking me to describe what salt tastes like. Impossible, right?

There are no adequate words or photos to express or capture the beauty of spending time with family, constantly eating glorious food, and realizing how blessed I am. Does anyone feel the same? Or has the blogging world just "poof" up and started again?


What's your blogging schedule like around the holidays? 
Up and running again like usual or do you have a (happy) emotional hangover like me?

  1. I feel this way...I can throw around tons of adjectives trying to tell everyone how awesome & loving my holiday was but it's really hard. I posted a pic of my boyfriend and me and our smiles hoping it will show a fraction of how happy I truly am!

    I hope you had a great Christmas!!

    Merry belated Christmas! =)

  2. I took a week off last week because of vacation and didn't post anything Monday or Tuesday. I was feeling too lazy!!

  3. For me it's hard if I have a review or something to do because all I want to do is blog about being happy and warm and what not. I have a hard time not being overly personal.

  4. I'd love to blog "proper" but a number of 3rd January deadlines mixed with Xmas on a West Australian Island has made it difficult. Plenty of Twittering though so maybe I should force myself to do one in under 10 minutes which I find to be my most productive

  5. Spending time with my family (and reading blogs during nap time!). Glad you had a wonderful christmas.

  6. I usually post something uplifting, trying to express what I feel and believe about this time of year around Christmas and then back off until the New Year. I make it a blog-cation.

    Hope your New Year is wonder-filled!

  7. I agree, who wants to spend time on the computer when you are surrounded by friends, family and amazing food?!
    (although this year I have some extra private time since I'm breastfeeding every 2 hours!)

  8. Oh, I WANT that scone!! I agree. I find everyone seems to slow down this time of year. In addition to wanting to spend time with loved ones and savor every moment, there is no time and utter exhaustion added to the mix. I have been working retail a lot - not fun this time of year! xo

  9. I always get thrown off my blogging game during the holidays! My words never do the experiences justice, and plus usually I'd rather be out celebrating and spending time with family and friends than sitting on the computer!

  10. I feel like I've been on a blogging hiatus since Thanksgiving! I'll post here and there, but my schedule (if I ever even had one, haha) has just been atrocious!

    But it's better to not blog and know you're having a wonderful time with your REAL life :)

    Also, those scones sound incredible and I need to track down a recipe!

  11. I am totally with you. I haven't blogged in over a week and I'm just not ready to jump back in yet. (Nor am I ready to jump back into work tomorrow). Those scones sound delicious by the way!

  12. Sneaking in some me-time on the computer while everyone else is busy!

  13. Hmmm...the last couple of years for me has been all about helping people choose the perfect gift for the holidays. Honestly, I think my entire holiday blogging schedule this year was gift and style guides.

    I guess I know how hard it is to shop for others, so I thought that gift guides would make it easier for some. So that's my holiday blogging schedule... :P

  14. Oh, I definitely feel this way... Enjoy the break :)

  15. I had an unplugged holiday with my fam and it was glorious! Glad to hear you had a fab one too!

  16. Merry Christmas, Tiffany! I feel exactly the same way. Completely cherishing every moment with my family and friends.

    Bless you this Holiday Season, Sweetie :)

  17. haha! I'm totally experiencing the same thing this year - I feel awkward. On one hand, the holidays feel special, and I want to savor them in real life. On the other hand, I want to see what other people are doing, and make some new blog friend for the new year! So I guess I've backed off a little bit from blogging, but I'm still visiting other blogs.

  18. @Lauren Jean- the recipe is from Joy the Baker thanks to my sister-in-law. So good!

  19. Yum, this looks incredible.

  20. I don't blog at all directly around christmas-time... too busy spending time with family, baking, and eating :) I didn't even check my email for two entire days around christmas this year - yikes! But I usually create a belated christmas post with plenty of pics from the holiday. Can't wait until Christmas 2013 already!
