I’ve been craving the creative outlet that this space provided for quite awhile. I’m working on a blog redesign, as I’m sure you can see. Be patient as things look hodgepodged. I’ve been waiting until it was done, but I couldn’t wait any more this morning. It just felt right.
It has been a good 2 years since I was consistently writing here. I gave myself the time to miss it. I thought about just shutting it down and opening a new blog, but that didn’t feel right. I still love my name here.
I think with the crazy busy that is life and that I made life, I lost sight of the beauty of the quiet moments for me to create for myself. I scheduled too much and there was no time. After you’ve been away for awhile, it’s so daunting to jump back in.
This morning is perfect. It’s cool outside, and I woke up to a 66* house. Normally I would shriek and whine, but this summer has been so long and so hot that the cool morning just fit the “fall” bill perfectly. I’m snuggled up with Ted, watching reruns of Fixer Upper, and drinking my coffee. These moments when I’m the only one awake in the morning are some of my favorite. I can sit and relax and not feel the need to be productive. It’s truly me time.
I hope to bring back more of my creative hobbies, more things that make me feel like me again. Life is too short to skip doing the things I love.
