Sam asked as I was walking out the door what band I was going to see. haha.  What can I say, I’ve always just felt good in black.  I usually like to break it up with a color, or just white, but all black everything felt pretty good to me on this particular day.  I’ve had a hard time keeping up with this blog as of late (I am sure you’ve noticed if you’ve been following me for a while).   Nothing has changed really, other than the lack of time I have to devote to this space.  With the growth of Rylee & Cru (the business, but I guess you could say my kids too) has come a ton of work that still rests almost solely on my shoulders.  It’s been such a blast and I wouldn’t change a thing about this past year, but with the growth of one thing, comes the sacrifice of others.  My creative output into the brand takes just about all the creative energy I can muster… when it comes to this blog and social media, I have found myself a little bit burnt out and uninspired.  I guess everything has it’s ebbs and flows.  Right now I am in a season of working my tail off to hopefully build a sustainable business that can support my family, as well as just being the best mama I can be, despite the workload.  Fashion and crafts and diy projects are still things I am passionate about, but don’t always have the time to share anymore.  Hopefully one day I can get back to more of that.  But for now, this is where I’m at and hopefully you’ll stick with me through this crazy adventure :)

    Hey Kelli,

    I have been following your blog for years, and I am sure anyone who has been following you on the journey, understands how much you do!! My blog has also gone on hold slightly, as I try and grow my stationery business.
    Your a huge inspiration for me, as I am not yet a mum and I sometimes wonder how you do so much! I don’t know where I will find the time to run a business once I have any kids, but you give me hope :)
