Oh, hello. Did you think I forgot I had a blog? Well, I sort of did, and it was kind of on purpose (more on that at the end of this post). Here’s what’s been going on:
+ We’ve been completely obsessed with this guy. He’s stolen our hearts. I’ve been trying not to overload Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. with #Rambograms, but it’s been difficult. We love him. Also, friends who have brought dogs into homes with cats: Any tips? My kitties are making the adjustment better than expected, but still not great, and I have some major cat-mom guilt.
+ Still trying to answer the “bangs or no bangs?” question. I have a haircut scheduled for tomorrow–with someone new, eep!–and let’s be honest: I probably won’t actually decide until the stylist’s shears are coming at my hair.
+ Peonies (see photo above). I just want to cover everything with them because I am smitten. I legitimately need to make my own flower budget–it’s the prettiest problem ever.
+ Trying to set some long-term goals, one of them being to figure out what I want to do with this blog. One of my New Year’s resolutions was to blog three times a week, and for awhile I was going strong. Then I broke my arm, and we got a dog, and life intervened–as it always does–and I began to think I wanted to totally give up on it and focus on all that stuff instead, especially since I spend my day at work in front of the computer blogging, writing social media posts and producing digital content for my company. It doesn’t help that I am so not interested in sponsorships or advertising or blogging strategies (again, I do that all day at work), and it seems like that must-monetize mentality is everywhere. For me, blogging has always been a way to practice the discipline of writing, and while I don’t want to give up this space entirely, I’m trying to figure out what the happy medium is, because I also love the little online community I’m a small part of thanks to this space.
So that’s that. I’ve had some potential posts swirling around in my head for awhile–a couple of recipes, a few book reviews (not blogging means I’m spending that time plowing through books, which is kind of awesome), some new products I love, some general thoughts on life–so I’m sure I’ll be back, I’m just not sure in what capacity yet.
In the meantime: How are you guys doing? Please tell me; I would really love to know.
