When I began this blog I was a fairly new mom with ambitions to share about that journey, to share about the important things in life, and to encourage everyone to stop and enjoy the moment a bit before dealing with the mundane tasks of life.
I believed then, and still do, that the "laundry" could wait while the living happens. Laundry doesn't have to be the same for me and you. For you it might be soothing or mind-clearing to not have a pile of clothes begging to be washed. For me, laundry is just another task. It could wait... If all else failed I could always throw them in the wash and just not deal with folding. ;)
A lot has changed since then though too. For one, I moved my lifestyle posts to my other, more established blog, A Well Crafted Party. I also got a full time job outside of the house...leaving even less time for both everyday tasks and family. It was, and is sometimes, a struggle to balance my ambitions and desires.
So, why am I back to writing on this blog after over a year of nothing? Ha! Good question. I'm sure my friends (and husband) finds it crazy that I'm filling my time with more projects. I believe that having a creative outlet that doesn't have a deadline and doesn't have any expectations from me allows me to maintain the balance that often sways one way or another.
If it doesn't work out? Well, I'll see you in another year or so.
