The greatest gift you can give yourself is a little bit of your own attention
(Anthony J D’Angelo)
6 months off from the blog. That’s how long I’ve been away, getting things back on track and putting my world back together after some life shattering news. It wasn’t by choice and it wasn’t expected. But that’s that now and spending 6 months to myself to sort through it all in my own way is exactly what I needed to do. I admit I couldn’t see that at first at the very beginning. I was angry and frustrated and resentful that my energy had been taken away from something I had spent years building. But with the beauty of hindsight and what seems like that hardest part behind me, I’m glad I stepped back for a bit. But let’s not all sit and wallow in what has been on focus on all the fun stuff….
New Blog! New Design! New Name! My time off gave me the space to work on how I wanted to go forward with this little space and every day I worked on changing platforms, registering new domains and creating the design that you see now. In true blog form it kept me sane by giving me a focus amongst all the chaos and it feels tremendous to be back with my camera, creating content and sharing stories.
Who are Denton & Lou you ask? Well they are both me. It’s a play on both my birth name and new married name. Denton is my married name, and Lou is my middle name (Denton & Megan was slightly too obvious one feels). It’s really as simple as being a bit of the new me with a healthy dose of everything central to the old me.
Trips have been had, adventures have been booked, and I’m excited to be back in the seat of sharing it all.
The old blog will redirect here automatically for a while until you get used to it. But thank you for stopping by and for continuing to check in during my absence (google analytics told me you popped in every now and again). There’s so much I’ve been waiting to share with you so get comfy, grab your wine and let’s get back to business.
