A NEW CHAPTER

It's been a long time coming.

I love this space. I love that it's always here if I need an outlet. If I want to share what's been consuming my days. If I need to break some news. For the last few years, that's been home design and DIY. It's been fun. It's kept me busy. It's been a motivator. But I guess, for the past few months, it hasn't been driving me. It's not my number-one reason for being. Not the driving force for me doing. It's just another thing I'm interested in the sea of things that interest me. But it's not the only thing.

I don't want to abandon this space, and I think the only way for me to keep it going is to broaden the focus. I may lose some of you because of this, and I totally understand. I've probably lost plenty already with all the radio silence. I understand. But now this space is going to be for me. No guilt if I feel like it doesn't fit a theme. No worry if I miss a week here or there. No pressure to be on trend. In style. Constantly working inside another life where I'm constantly working.

So, here it comes. I'm just going to let this space be about me. I'll never lie and tell you I'm not a narcissist. You've got to be, just a little bit, to run a blog about yourself. So excuse me while I change direction and start using this space as a way to share whatever the hell I want. Will there be a DIY here and there? You betcha. Will I share home style and design trends I love? Uh huh. But I'm also going to talk about myself—what's going on in my life, where I travel, what I'm spending my free time doing, what my thoughts are on headlines...I'm hoping to share a little creative fiction I want to get around to. I want this space to call to me, not sucker me into guilt.

It'll be freewheeling. Genuine. Spastic. Sporadic. But it'll be a space that makes me feel better. It'll let me be me, instead of a persona I sometimes feel trapped inside. I'm hoping it will free me to post more. I'm hoping it will be a place you continue enjoying.

But if not, don't worry. At least it'll be for me.

  4. Doing some blog catch-up - love this! I also have a random question and you are the creative type who might have a suggestion that works for me. Did you have any favorite, super unique and fairly nice wedding gifts you received? I need an idea for a close friend who is a very creative person. Thanks!

    1. Hey Megan! Some wedding gifts we loved that were a little out of the ordinary (and special) were a signed book with a special message by one of our favorite home-design bloggers, a custom Louisville Slugger baseball bat with our names, wedding date, and the Brewers logo (we're big fans), and I especially loved a custom illustration of the two of us (and Mr. Pancakes!) that a friend had commissioned from artist Nan Lawson (look her up on Etsy).

      Another great gift that was really special was a themed basket Eric's aunt and uncle gave us that had to do with all the things they loved to do and eat while they would go on camping trips when they were younger. We received a basket with a weekend gift certificate to stay at Eric's favorite childhood campground, gift certificates to a local meat market to get the snacks Eric loved as a kid, a percolator that Eric thought was the *coolest* when we was growing up, and a bunch of other fun things. It was really special and super thoughtful! We went on a camping trip later that summer and used it all, happily.

      Hope this helps!

    2. Meh, not really. Juuuuuuuust kidding ;) THANK YOU for these! I hadn't considered commissioned artwork or things like signed books from authors. What incredibly thoughtful ideas! We figured something small and transportable (they're actors) along with some cash (again, actors) would be the perfect solution and I'm loving (today, baha) your suggestions. A meellion thanks!
