Did you think I forgot I had a blog? Did you forget I had a blog? I don’t blame you if you did.
Anyway, things have been kind of crazy since my last post, as I’m sure they have for you, too. I mean, first of all, there was Thanksgiving, which meant the annual trek to my parents’ house and the subsequent long weekend of eating all the food there ever was, and then suddenly it was December, which meant my thought process was something along the lines of, “Look at all the pretty lights! So many people have trees up! Oh, crap, there’s only 25 days until Christmas and pretty soon it’s going to be 2014 and there’s so much to do.”
Add to that a pile of freelance work, and–most importantly–the very exciting news that ACS is moving to Sarasota (!!! Can you hear my squeals from where you are?), and the fact we have to find a bigger place to live (which means we need to move by January 1), and you can see why I’ve been neglecting this space and why I’ve come down with what I’ve been calling “the house-hunting crazies.”
All that being said, I’d be lying if I told you I don’t kind of thrive on stress and deadlines, and honestly, all of this stuff is really pretty great. Fantastic, even. But I miss this space, I miss blogging, and I miss interacting with you guys like I used to. It’s funny: I spend a lot of time (most of my time, actually) thinking about writing and editing and content strategy and brand-building, both in my full-time job and in the consulting I do for my freelance clients, but I’m kind of at a loss for what I want the direction of this blog to be.
This weekend, even with all that’s going on, I’m really looking forward to having some down time to sort of press the “reset” button in my brain and think about what I want the last few weeks of this year to be like, and also what I want for the first part of 2014. Who knows, maybe I’ll even pull out the old pen-and-paper journal–that always feels good.
Have a great weekend, you guys. xoxo
