A lot has changed since I last posted on this blog, nearly two years ago. I know it seems that I only write when “a lot has changed”, it’s a bit of a theme around here. The truth is, I’ve been finding myself these last few years. I’ve dabbled in running a shop, tried to get on the social media bandwagon, and had a baby. In all the madness, I made a decision to let my blog sit on the shelf for a while. I thought that I was over the writing thing. It turns out, I’m not. I have felt a small void these last few years without this place to share about my thoughts and interests. I started this site as an outlet, afterall. I guess what I’m saying, is that I’m pulling this here blog out of retirement, so I can write about what matters to me, and I’ll be kicking it off with a new series.
Over the last few years, I’ve been learning about how to better take care of my family, considering their futures, and the effect I have on that here and now. I’ve been simplifying the way that I run my household and my business, to try to make better time for both.
And do you know what I’ve learned? There is absolutely no way to do everything I want exactly the way that I want to do it. I can read all of the books in the world, browse the web for the dreamiest of things and places, and make list after list after list. But the truth is, I don’t think I will ever be 100% of the person I want to be. It’s a journey. Which is why I’ve decidedly named this new series becoming intentional.
What to expect? A slew of thoughts and projects about simplifying, decluttering our space and our lives, sustainability, and a smattering of responsible projects in the mix (like the reusable totes pictured above).
It feels good to be back, friends.
