A Spring2Spring Update

As you might have noticed, Spring2Spring briefly disappeared for a few days last week. I had made a decision to dedicate all my free time to pursuing my education. When I graduated with an MBA from Georgetown University some years ago, I thought I was finished studying. However, I now think becoming a CPA as soon as possible will help further my career. During the 5 days that Spring2Spring was no longer up and running, I reconsidered deactivating my beloved blog. The thought of closing it permanently tortured me so much over the weekend that I decided instead to keep it active. I’ll have to decrease my number of posts significantly and at this moment I cannot tell how often I will be able to post. I not only want to continue sharing my outfits with you but I also want to read your blogs and continue being part of this wonderful blogging community. I’ll leave comments on your blogs as often as time allows me but they will be short and less frequent. I’m very sorry about that! Instagram will be my best ally for keeping connected with you. It’s easier to look at your photos and to comment there while I’m waiting in line at Whole Foods, when I’m riding the metro,  etc.

I have just opened a new Instagram account (I closed my first one when I decided to stop blogging – huge mistake!). I’ll post some of my favorite old photos even though some of them feature summer looks. Let’s dream of warmer days! Please leave your instagram links in the comment section so I can find you easily.

I’ll have a new post next week, and every time I have a new one, I’ll find a way to let you know.

Today it’s my blog’s 6-month anniversary! I’m sharing with you some of my favorite looks from the last half year.

I thank you very much for visiting my blog during these months and I really hope our relationship continues.

Love,

Danielle

    I did notice your blog disappear last week but then a few days later you stopped by my blog so I thought maybe there was a glitch. You have had a great 6 months and have put together some very chic outfits. I understand your thinking though and your focus is not here anymore. The best of luck with your higher education, with school, successes, your career and everything else you got going. I will still stop by at least once a week to see your latest, especially since I currently don’t have Instagram.

    Merry Christmas Danielle and keep doing what your heart tells you to!

    My best, Ada. =)

    Hi Danielle,

    I’m sorry to hear that you almost quit blogging but glad to hear that in the end you decided to continue. I do understand your concern though: blogging really takes lots of time and if you have other priorities in your life (such as a new study) it may be hard to keep it up. But I’m glad it’s not the end of your blogging journey and that I’ll be able to come and visit your blog for outfit inspiration in the future.

    Good luck with your new studies and your career!

    Hi Danielle,
    I also saw that your blog had been deactivated earlier this week and was so sad about it! I’m glad you decided to keep it up and running, even with fewer posts. As a busy working person, I totally understand your conflict about needing to focus more on work, career, other things! It does take a lot of time to manage a blog and keep up a community. But you can decide how much you want to invest in it and not let it get out of control. Looking forward to seeing more this year, but no pressure, right?

    I know exactly how you feel. Trying to keep up with studies and trying to blog on top of other day to day activities is tiring. I was blogging for a while and I went on a hiatus to finish up my Senior year at college, and now that I’ve graduated I have more time to dedicate to my blog BUT now I’m considering getting my MBA beginning January and I know I’ll have to neglect blogging again.
    Nevertheless, good luck with everything!

I was hoping that you didn’t stop or that something bad didn’t happen; I’m glad to know that latter didn’t! You were definitely missed and I did think of you during the weekend 🙂

    Dear Danielle,
    you can not imagine how happy I am, that you are back! I was really crying and I told my husband every day, that I am missing you so much and that I don’t understand why all your accounts were cancelled. I also tried to write you an email letter, but unfortunately it did not work either. First I was very afraid that someone hacked your accounts. My husband searched through the whole internet to find something and that I can contact you. It was a terrible time! I like you and your blog very much Danielle and I hope we will always stay in contact!
    For your career I wish you a lot of success! Today, life, work and job are not the same as years ago and we always have to learn more and more topics. It’s really weird!
    Thank you so much for sharing your favorite outfits with you and congratulations to your 6th month anniversary :-*
    Welcome back, Danielle!

    That is so great that you are going back to school. I took the CPA exam years ago right after I finished my undergraduate degree in accounting. It was a hard test back then, but I’m sure you will be able to pass it. It is a lot of work to study for so I can see why keeping up with the blog would get in the way. I’m glad you let us know what happened to you. Keeping a blog is a lot of work. I will be sure to follow you on Instagram and to stop by when you put up a new post. Good luck and happy studying!

    Love all your looks! Happy 6 month anniversary! Sorry that you have to blog less but I think what you are doing is so amazing. I will always be checking in with you to see what you doing (and wearing).

    I have been coming to your blog and I actually thought my laptop had a problem, am glad you are back and did not close the blog as you intended. It’s my 6th month blog anniversary too. It breaks my heart that you won’t be posting as often but am glad that you are not totally closing the blog because that would be even worse. We will definitely stay connected on Instagram and I will visit the blog whether you post or not because you are one of my main motivators on my blog. I wish all the best as you do your CPA and I know you will ace it because you are smart and may your career flourish and may you be elevated! Looking at all these posts brings the best memories of visiting your blog my dear friend.
