Lots! That's what!
Well, as you know, we got sweet daughter moved up to law school. That was really quite a feat.
I threw a lovely bridal shower for my assistant last Saturday. I will be sharing some pictures of that in the near future. Super fun!
I read and finished Anna Karenina. I'm pretty proud of that and will be sharing a review on that selection also in the near future. (LOVED IT!!!)
And.... are you ready? I have lost 22lbs!!!!!!! YAY! ME!
(I don't really look like this ...hehehehe)
Of course there is always the job! Which helps to allow for all the fun but takes up most of the time. I should probably tell you that I landed a HUGE new account. (an insurance company that must remain nameless)
So, in all of that I really didn't have time to blog a lot. Including visiting my pals. I even have to admit that I was wondering if I should give up the blog altogether.
I was remembering a conversation that I had with someone about my blog and she asked "Well? What's the point of your blog?" I was a little shocked and taken off guard by the boldness of the question but I answered, "I don't know? " And that made me think... Is this just wasted time for me? I mean, I don't sell anything, I'm not a decorator, I do some crafts, but nothing that is really terribly original. What is the point?
I'm not going to lie and say that I wouldn't love to find my blog in the pages of Artful Blogging, Where Women Create or Romantic Homes. What about Cottage of the Month? I have often thought "wouldn't that be the most amazing thing ever?!" I mean we see it all the time. Right? But the truth of the matter is that that probably is not going to happen.
So! Why blog?
Well, I had to go back to why I even started my blog in the first place. I really did just start it to track little projects and to show off my great finds. Maybe share a little about my faith. That was it. But, boy did I get side tracked. I found that I really love taking photos. Sometimes, in my head, I pretend like I'm putting together a book or a little magazine. All of a sudden it occurred to me that I was using things that I had put away and finding pretty new uses for them. My blog and next post was always in the back of my mind.
I was finding a new path for creativity. This is good!
So! The final decision is that I will continue to blog. I will continue to love the beautiful things about it. I will try to forget the things that discourage me, and just do what I love. Take pictures, decorate, craft, and read books.
And of course share it all with you!
