It's Been A While

I haven't intended to be away for so long. Life is busy, as always. It's regular and normal and day-to-day. But it's different too. There's a lot of adjusting going on. I'm loving my new house, loving making it a home. I'm stubbornly pursuing the good things, lightness and laughter. I'm trying for shiny and bright rather than the obvious alternative.

I've been hovering around, checking in with other blogs and keeping up with the portrait project, but I've lacked the motivation for much else here in this space. And one thing that's become abundantly clear after a month of not much is just how much I miss it - the outlet, the interaction, the inspiration.

And yet, the words aren't flowing. Not yet.

So I've decided to give myself a little project for the month of August - to keep my hand in, to give me a focus, but that doesn't require too much effort. It will force me out with my camera and keep my eyes open and searching. 

There's a bunch of fresh flowers in my kitchen, and their scent combined with the unexpected warmth of the past few days reminds me that spring isn't far away. In the meantime, I'm going to try to celebrate what's left of winter with a month of photos, each accompanied by a handful of words, or none at all.

It might be just what the doctor ordered.


  1. looking forward, this photo is a real beauty x

  2. I have been thinking of you.... and checking in!
    This sounds like the perfect project. I'm looking forward to it.
    Much love xx

  3. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with...

  4. I have been feeling the same way! I would like to find my rhythm again, but I just can't figure out how.
    Looking forward to your August posts!

  5. I'm sure the words will flow when the words are ready. Nothing wrong in being in transition and settling into a new space, new life. Have fun with your August :)

  6. Sometimes a little time away to slow down and appreciate the simple things in life is just what we need :) I highly recommend it. While you're snapping away, capturing gorgeous images as you always do, remember to do a little something special for yourself lovely lady... Embrace the newness of your journey!
