Hope you're inspired,
or at the least, entertained.

Resolving to Be Resolute

Resolving to Be Resolute

I am welcoming—more like pushing—myself back into the world of blogging.

Oh, Lord. Give me strength.

It's hard. I'd rather keep to myself and be a recluse, yet, my thought bucket disagrees. It's been over 3 years since I shut down (actually, hid) my blog and called it a wrap.

Why? I've finally figured it out.

 My self, in Napa Valley, realizing it's time to start photographing myself more, just incase Netflix decides to do a documentary of me after I die.

  • Reason 1: Hatred of attention. There's no need for further explanation.
  • Reason 2: My internet activity became my identifier. There is more to me than my blog content. (Insert smiley face.)
  • Reason 3: There was a certain need for radio silence, so that I could form (and combine) my social circle after getting married. My audience was diversifying and I needed to understand them before I began again.
  • Reason 4: My interests were undergoing metamorphosis, my personality was leaping many boundaries and I was in a season of learning.

In these past few years, I've learned and taught myself quite a lot.

  • Cooking whatever I feel like.
  • Cake baking and decorating
  • Hand-lettering and illustrating
  • Folding Fitted-Sheets like a boss
  • Learning how to read the Bible
  • Making lite conversation
  • Understanding the limits of friendship
  • Running an Etsy shop
  • Owning a dog
  • Properly doing laundry
  • Allowing God to lead in silence
  • Dealing with death and dying
  • And much more...

So, I come. Bearing fresh wisdom, with a hefty ounce of humility in knowing that this is more a blog reaped from experience rather than expertise.
