Coming back

I don’t know why I had such a hard time sticking to blogging. I really do love it and think about it all the time. I look at things and think, “man I could write a really good post about this.”

Since I haven’t done anything to this blog in over a year…. (year and a half now), I’ve decided to come back. I know there isn’t anyone here waiting to hear from me, or anyone that believes I’ll show face once a week (or even once month), but I want to be here. I have so much that has happened to me in the last year and a half that I feel like I need to document it. I need to keep track of projects and express myself in some way.

Only a few life changing events have happened since last July…

A year ago I adopted a dog. I love him.

6 months ago I bought a house. It was scary but I love it.

6 months ago I quit my job. That job I used to obsess about how much I loved? Yep. Its gone.

6 months ago I started a new job. I never thought I would get a new job, its been a roller coaster.

So yeah, I’ve got a lot to talk about. House projects, work, money saving. I don’t really know what category this blog falls under but Im thinking about just keeping it listed under Life.

This is just a little post for me to pour out my feelings… but I will be back shortly with tons more to say.

3/60 Happy Hour

So for anyone who has been clinging to my site, staring and waiting for my own personal photo challenge to continue, please hold. With really harsh sunlight, crazy dark cloud-covers, and dead batteries, luck hasn’t been on my side. I am still gung-ho about photographing life, but give me a few days to get into a pattern. Slow start.

On another note, I’m back in the blogging world! I can’t tear myself away from my computer (or phone depending where I am) because I finally have the time to obsess over my favorite people again.

My new favorite couple (& family) are Sherry and John from Young House Love. Apparently everyone reads their blog and no one ever told me to! Come on you guys. Im obsessed with their two fully renovated homes (they are on lucky number 3!), and their laid-back, super relaxed outlook on life. Its really refreshing. They make me want to run out and buy a house that needs lots of love. I also made sure to tell my best friend about it immediately. She has always been a crafty DIY-er and she fell in love with them too. (She also just bought a super cute little house with her new hubby that she wants to do a lot of work too.)

I am also still obsessed with A Beautiful Mess. (I also mentioned them here and here.) These girls are just so crafty and light-hearted, I want to be friends with them.

Its super rainy here today and I’ve been moving fairly slow. Im sifting through my closet trying to get rid of more and more clothes. This seems to be my new favorite hobby.. but the space never seems to get emptier! It feels so great and healthy to get rid of three or four bags of clothes though, especially when you can donate them or give them to friends.

What are you doing this weekend?
