A month in review :: January

I feel like I have blogged less, in the month of January, than I have the whole year prior.  With the new year came so many new adventures and projects.  My life has been on a steady coast of schedules, timeframes, and deadlines.  It's not that I haven't wanted to blog, it's more the lack of anything interesting to share.  My life is pretty simple, pretty modest, and pretty uneventful for the most part.

I read a lot of other blogs and wonder how they do it all?  The city girls with their business 9-5's transforming into socialites in cocktail attire come twilight or the mommies with their precious projects and giggling children who love them so.  It amazes me how they find the time and energy to complete the multitude of tasks before them while, all the while, sharing it with all of us.

Maybe it would be easier if I had something to talk about more than my own personal existence?   Maybe if I didn't live in the middle of nowhere, had a bustle of charming children, or a fabulous art studio to create in, this wouldn't be the case?  Who knows, but lately I have had a personal mantra for the blog that "if you don't have something interesting to share, don't share anything at all" and so, it's been pretty quite here.

Hello February!  Let's try to be a little more interesting ok?



  1. I feel like my life is similar and end up not sharing a good portion of it. You're being REAL! I've always liked quality more than the number of posts made in a week/month.

    A few bloggers end up posting daily and it's just too much for me to keep up. Or those that speed through DIY's or recreate these overdone & old crafts like floral crowns. Yours come off original and your style pokes through. (http://www.cakedvintage.com/2012/10/crafty-confessions-pine-cone-crown.html this was amazing)

    I like reading personal posts that don't seem interesting to everyone. It's nice to be able to look into somebody's life like that and relate with them during those uneventful days.

    Some people can do it all because that's just their personality/lifestyle. That would make me go crazy..haha.

    I'll love to live in the middle of nowhere though.. where I can start on my farm of puppies.. of course!

  2. I know exactly what you mean! I hardly blogged last year for the same reasons, and if I didn't have the epic house renovation going on currently in all likelihood I would still not be blogging often. But I do like seeing these little glimpses into your life, and it will be nice to see what you get up in February, as little or as often as you'd like to share x

  3. this post is a good idea.
    cute pictures and i love the font for January haha :)


  4. Wow I like that wood carving 9th pic it looks real.

  5. oh goodness you live in such a beautiful place I think every pic of yours is worth sharing! but i def know how you feel & sometimes dont have much to talk about w/ all work/school. I love this idea of the little recap though, the post w/ that giant dog w/ the pretty barn & you all dressed up is so cute!


♥ Thanks for commenting! I truly appreciate each comment I receive and nothing brightens my day more than reading your thoughts!
