OHMIGOSH. I’m here!! I’m still here, still breathing, and missing your beautiful faces.
So sorry for the long, unexplained absence, and THANK YOU for all the sweet emails checking in on my little fam. We are all perfect, happy and nothing is wrong – except that I just can barely do two things at once, you know what I mean?
We went to Costa Rica right before Christmas, then we came home and I felt like I just couldn’t get my act together and the whole Christmas season flew by. I mean, we put up our Christmas tree on December 15. Then about five days later, we put lights on it. I didn’t do a single thing to celebrate advent; I listened to one Christmas CD once, and suddenly the whole season ended and it was 2015!
TWO THOUSAND FIFTEEN.
WHAT. We are living in the future.
Then suddenly I had let my blog sit empty for a few weeks and I felt like my first post back needed to be EPIC! Groundbreaking! Earth-shattering! And I didn’t have that post, so I didn’t write anything, and thus began an endless cycle of not-posting, increasing pressure and unhappiness, because I love blogging and I WANT to be blogging, not weighed-down by my own dumb invented pressures.
But here I am, ripping off the bandaid. I have nothing epic for you. Not even any projects. We haven’t done a thing to our house in the last couple months, you guys. I mean it’s vacuumed – barely – but I figure that How To Vacuum tutorial is probably not going to intrigue anyone.
I can’t even make the fancy vacuum-carpet lines, you know?
The truth is that we’ve been super busy working on our other business, the one that Andy runs, and I’ve been pinch-hitting a lot to help as it grows. But is anything more boring than listening to someone talk about how busy they are? I know.
Anyway, I wanted to just be real with you and let you know what’s going on and what to expect from here.
This is the real truth: you couldn’t rip this blog from my cold dead fingers. It’s my happy place and it’s what I want to be doing, all the time. But we’re just in a season of me-not-getting-to-do-what-I-want-all-the-time. (I know: WHAT THE HECK.) And the house projects are on the back-burner for the short-term. Hopefully the very short term.
So I’ll still be posting, but not as regularly as before – just for a season! – and maybe the topics might change a little, maybe there’ll be other stuff that’s not DIY just so I have an excuse to chit-chat with you. I hope that’s okay. I hope you’ll stick around. I really like you being here. If you’d like to be notified when there are new posts, you can submit your email address here and you’ll get the new posts via email! Isn’t that fancy?
I’ve missed you! Tell me what’s up! What have you been up to? What have you been reading? How is it 2015 already – explain that please.
