It’s been a while since I’ve pressed publish on FragrantMoments.net and with good reason, life has been getting in the way. I’ve thought of the words to throw down to explain it and the time has come.
Back in February, I accepted a full time gig at a global PR firm. The freelance thing was great but life was pressing for a steady check.
On June 10, 2014, my wife gave birth to a beautiful boy. We named him Mateo Lamont Bishop. We chose that middle name after my deceased brother. I wish with all my heart Lamont was here to meet my Prince and have brunch with us, cut his hair, and impart advice on him but a las the universe had a different plan.
When you add these two up, there leaves little time for blogging. I’ve been exploring another passion, photography, as a part of a campaign I’m fortunate to be a part of with Samsung, and you’ve seen some of that shared via Wordless Wednesdays. (Check my flickr feed when you have a moment).
Throughout all of this, however, the fragrance community has been really supportive checking in on me, inviting me out to events, etc. For that I’m thankful.
A few months back, one of those check ins, brightened my day. I received an email from Atelier Cologne asking me to participate in a newsletter they were putting together. With all I had going on, even that was iffy for me. Nevertheless, I have so much respect for the brand, I couldn’t turn it down.
What you see here is my part in that newsletter. Even more exciting, I’m in the midst of some well regarded fragrance aficionados.
Look for me in the November issue of Men’s Health magazine. I’m quoted on the topic of men’s fragrances.
I think the fragrance universe is pulling me back in. I’ll just have to add another ball to the juggling act.
I’m back baby!!! (Sort of ;-))
Congratulations on everything! Great to hear that your absence was for all the right reasons. A new baby too! My congrats to the new mom as well.
Thanks so much. I appreciate the the support.
