hi friends, so there's a thunderstorm rolling up outside, a sweet baby napping a room away & a steaming mug of my favorite tea nestled next to the most amazing dark chocolate almonds from trader joe's (full disclosure: they're addicting).
& i'm thinking about this sweet space & what a blessing this blog is in my life.
it is such a privilege to share our lives with you. to have the opportunity to write & share & create & go through life on tulips & flightsuits. at their best, blogs become a way to share our lives with an incredible level of transparency, with a really consistent authenticity of voice & in a way that makes this world a little better, bit by bit. that means so very much to me. i wanted to check in with you as i feel like my voice has been slipping in recent weeks -- there's an elephant in the room that is our lives, one i'm grateful i'll be able to share with you soon, but for now, i want to dig deep and make things a little better around here.
first of all, sorry for all the design upheaval -- i can't quite figure out what i want this space to look like specifically (i know it want it to be a simple, clean, beautiful, easy to wander site) & seem to make changes (then not like them) and run out of time/bandwidth in my life to finish them. so, i'm gonna wait for the time & space to really make them right secondly, instagram has been such a lifesaver, especially since e arrived. i always have my iphone on me & it has given me such an easy way to really chart this incredible year for our family. in some ways, it's a mini-blog. that said, i've over used the photos here -- if you want to follow me on instagram, please do! & i will continue to use some of the photos here, but i really want to get back to big ideas posts, and helping us all find creative, intentional ways to do life. the reality is me re-posting all my instagram photos is just taking time away from that.
so, i've got some posts that have been brewing for way too long. my soul longs to write them. so, i'm booking some time at coffee shops in the near future & am excited to hit publish. in the meantime, thanks for hanging with me. it really is such an honor to have so many of you swing by here -- and reach out ANYTIME (firstname.lastname@example.org) with thoughts. i love hearing from y'all.
back soon. xo
p.s. i've added two things to the right hand column, an easy way to get to my instagram photos & a way to see what i'm reading!
