This Space + Starting Over
Posted on 26 June 2015
I don't know if there's anyone that still visits this space. I don't even really know if people still read blogs. I have to confess... I don't. Unless you grab me with a photo on IG and drag me to your blog, I'm probably not going to read it. I have a feeling that this is the case with most people these days. That being said, ever since Abby was born (or maybe shortly before) I've had this itch to write. Maybe it's because I want her to have something to look back at someday. Or maybe because she is already growing up and changing so quickly that I don't want to forget these moments. Maybe it's a bit of both. And so, I'm going to write. I'm going to document these special times that we're sharing. I'm also going to throw in the other parts of my life... business, jewelry, maybe some recipes or videos (if I get brave) on how to make jewelry. I've put a lot of thought into writing and blogging the last few months. There's something in me that feels the need to be here - to write - and it's only gotten more intense over time. I don't know why I can't get past it, but here I am. This space has changed so many times over the last 4 years. I've published and unpublished and started and restarted. I was never as invested as I thought I should have been. I was afraid to share myself and, because of that fear, had nothing to write about - nothing that I was willing to write about - and so this space fell by the wayside. The thing is, whether anyone reads about it or not, life happens and it's beautiful and worth documenting. The beauty of social media is that it brings a wide range of people who might never have been connected together. I've experienced some of the most wonderful friendships through social media and have been blessed enough to continue those friendships outside of the internet as well.
