June 1st 2015

I’ve been writing this blog for over 7 years now and it has been one of the most rewarding projects I’ve ever taken on. I shouldn’t even call it a project because it’s never been planned or properly thought out. I just started writing one day and I guess I never stopped. Because this blog was never part of a larger plan, it never felt like work. I wrote because I felt like sharing and it was that simple. Lately, however, I haven’t felt that desire to blog. A big part of it has to do with time – we obviously have our hands full over here – and another has to do with feeling like I want to possibly explore other ways of sharing all of these thoughts and ideas. I promised myself that I would never blog because I have to; only because I want to. This would ensure that this blog remains honest, authentic and a fun outlet for me. It remains all of these things but lately I do feel this self-imposed pressure to blog in the morning, as opposed to this excited urge to run to the computer to write.

So I’ve decided to take a break. I don’t know how long this break will last but I think it will allow me to take a step back and re-assess what the future holds for Lake Jane. I am hoping that I will miss it like crazy and return to the blogging world feeling inspired and energized. But if I don’t, I am confident that I’ll find other ways to stay connected with you wonderful people, who have been nothing but kind and supportive over the past 8 years.

In the meantime, I will be on Instagram and I hope we can keep in touch there.

Thank you thank you thank you for reading this blog. I hope to see you very soon.

Have you read this book? Everyone seems to be talking about it these days!

Tokyo Fashion Week has got it going on.

Finally, I promised to share with you the air date for the episode of 2 Filles Le Matin featuring the recap of the Home Sense makeover I worked on last month. We filmed the actual episode on set yesterday and it was so lovely to see the Godfrey family again. They are beyond inspiring.  The show will be airing next Monday, March 23rd at 9h30am on TVA 🙂

Have a great weekend!
