things on my mind
... sometimes, as i scroll through my reader, i feel like i'm reading the same blog post, fifty different times from fifty different people. it is kind of boring - this repetitive nature of blogging. blogs i used to love are now
... i've only been blogging for two years but i've seen such a dramatic change in the blogging community in these two years. there are so many blogs and it both overwhelms me and irritates me at the same time. does this make sense or am i just crazy?
... i've been stuck in writer's block mode for a couple of weeks. perhaps it is just the summer time, or the fact that i have been going non stop for about six weeks, but seriously i'm just not feeling it. i don't want to write. i don't want to edit pictures. i don't want to create content to keep a blog alive. i just want to write when i feel like it about what makes me happy.
... i'm totally head over heels in love with blueberries in a salad. have you tried this? seriously, my current addiction is grilled chicken salad with feta cheese and blueberries. if you haven't tried it, get on the bandwagon. i'm sure it will be the next big thing.
... my heart is changing. i feel like i'm being called to do some things i haven't felt comfortable with in the past and these things are also leading me away from the blogging community. that scares me. i've invested so much time, money, and creativity in this little world. but i know if i follow what i feel God is calling me to do it will bless me ten-fold what this blog has done. maybe i have just grown too comfortable here and it is time to move on?
... i will never stop blogging. but i might be less focused on it. i don't know.
... i could really really use a pedicure.
... there should be a button, like the easy button from staples, that when i push gives me a totally inspiring thought to keep my going. is there one of those on the interwebs that i don't know about?
... i'm trying to find that delicate balance in life right now between job, life, and hobby that allows me to be fulfilled by all three and fulfill all three. it seems like a period of transition and processing for me - an opportunity stand back and check what is important and what i can let go of. have you let go of anything lately?
... and to round out the completely random nature of this post, here are some things i'd like to own:
this clutch from aubrey plays. i love the shape and construction of it. totally original.
this incredibly adorable bracelet from twillypop. because it will go perfectly with every oklahoma state outfit i own. and it is only 45 days until football season starts. (oh it is a necklace - but i'd double wrap it as a bracelet)
it is obvious that i'd like to have one of everything in maggie's shop, but i am seriously loving this floral + mint gussy sews wristlet. good for holding all kinds of things i'd like to carry around with me.
and if not that little bag, this leather & fabric pouch from scout and catalogue will do.
a true love ring from amy cornwell would make a perfect anniversary gift for me. (attention: are you listening chris?)
i'm about out of thank you cards and just because cards. i think this little set from sparrow nest script would be a good place to start restocking.
okay. what's going on in your head?
