Welcome, dear readers!
Before moving forward with the myriad of things I want to write (and cook, and bake, and read, and wear…) for you, I wanted to first talk about why I left the blogosphere, and why I’m back now.
If you followed my previous creative venture (BestBayhavior) on instagram or were a blog subscriber, you may wonder where I went for so long and without warning. As some readers (from way back when) may remember, I was completing my teaching credential and working full time while trying to maintain BestBayhaviour and my sanity. It was not working, and something had to go… I chose to keep my sanity over my website.
Since the site became inactive in July 2016, a lot has changed. The biggest two changes in my life are the achievement of two longtime dreams of mine: I am now happily teaching and have happily moved to LA.
Because I relocated from the Bay Area to Los Angeles, and my previous blog focused on my life in the Bay Area, I decided it was time for a name and mindset adjustment.
Cue makeover montage music.
Bookmarks + Breadcrumbs is less focused on a specific location and more focused on what brings me joy, reflecting a more authentic experience for both myself and my readers.
As the name suggests, this blog will have much to do with my loves of reading and teaching as well as cooking and baking, but there is also so much more to be found here. You can read more about my intent and inspiration for Bookmarks + Breadcrumbs on the About page.
I half expected my life to slow down after finishing school, making my big move, and finding a job, but it hasn’t. Although I’m busy and the timing is tough, I’m coming back to blogging because I miss my creative space and opportunities to share and collaborate with others. I hope you’ll tag along and check back for new posts and updates, or even better, that you’ll share this creative space with me in some capacity — comment, subscribe, or collaborate! I would love to hear from you.
Thank you for following the breadcrumb trail that led you here!
