|(my new haircut!)|
I miss this space....sometimes I will open up blogger and just stare at the screen thinking about what to write but then I don't. I want to connect but then I don't take the time to read other blogs. What's a girl to do?
Never have I been one to just throw out a post that has no meaning. I want it to inspire someone, touch someone or at least share something real. Blogging is a hobby for me. As much as I would like to make lots of money from it and be famous in the blog world I know I cannot invest enough time to do so. Besides, it's definitely not why I started blogging in the first place.
I wanted to jump right in and publish a design post I wrote last year but I didn't feel it would be fair to act like I didn't neglect this blog and my loyal (and occasional) readers. I am not apologizing for not writing but I am asking for a fresh start. I want this blog to really reflect who I am. Sometimes I will read an old post and think-that doesn't sound like me. However, I don't want a total blog makeover. There are still plenty of aspects about my blog that I love and that I have worked very hard on.
Bare with me as I go off on a tangent for a moment. I met up with some old friends from high school over break and one of them asked us a very deep question during our conversation. How do we think we've changed since graduation? I went last (mostly because I didn't have an answer right away). My answer in summary was that "I don't care about what others think as much" and "that I am more appreciative and thankful for what I have". But even after our little reunion I have been thinking about this question. What would my family members and friends say? What would my husband say? After all, we have been dating for about 9 years. How do people perceive me? I am not talking about appearance...I am talking about my character.
So I hope you will stick around to find out more about the girl behind "designer in teal". I want to talk more about my faith and (attempts at) living a healthier life style. I want to share what's on my mind and my heart. I still want to share design posts about our home but I know it doesn't look like its out of a magazine and I won't pretend that it does.
So, are you still there? Leave me a comment letting me know how 2015 is treating you so far!
p.s. that design post that has been sitting in my drafts for months will be published tomorrow!!
