the last nine months have been...busy. i don't like to use the word "busy" because it seems to imply that life is moving faster for me than it is for others, and i just don't believe that's true. but, we have been busy...but a different busy than we/i have been accustomed to. and with new busy there's change, and with change there's adjustment. there's been a lot of adjustment.
i spent the last 3 years of my life at home raising my three kids and mastering the art of stay-at-home-momdom. i loved that period in my life. and i'd like to believe that i was very good at it. as was documented on this blog, i nurtured my creative side and spent my days creating beauty within and around my home and drawing from the other creatives in my life (on-line and off) to drive my passion for life even more.
and then life changed.
and i truly love this new change. this new busy. this new life. and i think i'm quite good at this, too.
but this new life does not leave room for the creative soul.
actually, i take that back. there's always room for creativity, but the creativity i'm using now does not match the creativity that i used to build this blog. are you following me? because that is what has kept me from continuing here in this space. my world nine months ago does not match my world now, and i built this blog on my life of last year.
and now i *might* want to reconcile the two.
after we returned home this afternoon from a family adventure, i urged my kids to sit down and journal their days' experience. and then i realized that journalling is exactly what mama needed to do, too.
so i'm here.
definitely no sewing.
no painting or drawings or other creative pieces.
my simple photography and simple words.
