Hey Remember Me? It's Kira... And I'm Alive!

So this little blog-cation turned into a full-blown sabbatical. To sum things up:


Yep! And it's been the best decision Kevin and I have made. So, the reason behind the hiatus (in case you were wondering) was so that I could prepare for a major move and spend as much time with my family as possible. And although I planned on getting back into the swing of writing when we got settled here in Charlotte, I dove right into something that's been keeping me (incredibly) busy. I went back to school (!!!) I can't say just yet what I'm studying but I can reveal that it's what I've always wanted to do. You could make an educated guess from some past posts on here what it is. But I'll leave it at that for now. To say I'm excited is definitely an understatement!

So, why'd we move to Charlotte?

This something I'm frequently asked. And here's the simple answer: I feel at home here. More than anywhere else I've ever been. Plus the weather is amazing. The long answer is a bit involved but I'll try my best to explain... in another post. Cliffhanger, much?

And what about Leigh Clair?

Well, I'm not 100% sure how it will continue but I do plan to continue blogging, just in another capacity. Blogging for me is like a journal, reflecting life, whatever it may look like at that point in time. When I started LC, my life revolved around cosmetics, beauty, shopping, and wellbeing. Now, my life is revolving around other things (of which I can't wait to share with you!) So in the interim, I hope you can follow along on this journey with me (on Instagram @KiraLSemple is a good place to start.) As per posting schedule, I can't promise regularity of any form just yet. I'm trying my best to figure out how LC will compliment and reflect my life here in Charlotte as this new chapter of my "journal" begins.

I hope to pop in and provide some updates here and there. So, bear with me, because lots of exciting things are happening.

OH! And if any of you are local, I'd love to know your favorite places in Charlotte! I am obsessed with this place- my bookmarks of places to go and places to eat (eating being a priority, ha!) is pretty much out of control. 

Thank you, dear readers from the bottom of my heart for sticking around! It's been far too long, I know! 

Until then...
