I just started one of those posts where you just let your fingers do their thing and it's like you got a look at your inner psyche...and it scares you. It was about blogs and perfection and being genuine and not being genuine. Like I said, it scared me a little, reading my own words. It's like my heart wants to talk about it but my mind isn't ready. So that post will wait. Or maybe it'll never happen....

so my monthly goals (which seemed oh-so-clever and wise at the time) just aren't happening. Sure, I tried to be a good wife in February (but only brandon can be the judge of that). March is almost over and oopps.....that "style" blog doesn't even have a url. Frankly I just don't have the time. Or rather, I choose to not spend my time doing that. instead: I'm taking my photography business to the next level (didn't know I had a photography business?! exactly. my. point.) I took on a new and very exciting job. My mom and I are making plans to re-do my kitchen this summer. I'm trying desperately to make/save more money. I'm paying up for a semester worth of procrastinating assignments. I'm making art. I'm having art shows. I'm getting at least 8 hours of sleep EVERY NIGHT (huzzah!). And I'm meditating. 

and I feel comforted knowing I'm doing exactly what I'm supposed to be doing RIGHT NOW. and that feeling is rare. so I'm going to savor it.

which means this blog will continue to follow it's irregular, sporadic, nonsense style.
hope that's ok with you.


p.s. here are some words of wisdom I know I needed, so maybe you need them too

Raising Resilient Children
Equal Partnership in Marriage

(good reads for parents/non parents, marrieds/singles)

p.p.s. I'm taking a blog fast. not from mine. but from yours (everyones). Don't worry, it's not personal. "it's not you, it's me..." but really, I need that time to make sure I pass classes and all that good stuff. Netflix took a hit too, so at least you are in good company. :)
