On Blogging (and Wesley)

Sunday, August 24, 2014


Well hello! We need to discuss some things!

1. So someone asked about Wesley and so there that boy is, he's almost 2 (mind blown). Insert all the mushy things moms say and there you have it. But I'd like to add that I fear my heart might stop one day from the love it feels for him. He's the coolest.

2. I miss you guys, a lot.

3. This like 5 month long blog break I did? Amazing. It started because I was supposed to have my blog re-designed to exactly what I wanted and I was so excited - and after all the inspiration collecting and some rough drafts (imagine the excitement) - she then informed me that she had to switch my blog to Wordpress. slow clap. Good time to tell me that. (that was sarcastic). THEN for some reason she couldn't figure out how to switch it (long story) so basically gave me a small refund and dumped me. Then I lost all motivation on the blog front.

4. The break was amazing though. I didn't realize how much time and energy I actually spent on blogging. Not only time and energy but prioritized it over other things and even arranged my schedule to allow enough time for it in the evenings - maybe it was subconsciously, I don't know - but living without blogging made me realize a new perspective of freedom and it has been good. Its not hard to get caught up in the pressures of posting, commenting, etc. Its such a silly pressure to be under though.

5. So what now? Until I can find some fresh motivation to run a daily blog again - I'm going to just do the same thing but at my Tumblr. I think Tumblr will keep me real - since its more real time, instant, less thought out/planned, more whenever i want. I think I can share more personal moments and photos there too since it didn't always fit in here. So - join me over there and lets try it that way, ok? Are you on Tumblr? Will you give me your addresses there?

Street Art

Thursday, March 13, 2014

I like this street art that I found at joeiurato.com

I have totally shamelessly abandoned the blogging world the past few weeks, it is true. I was having the site redesigned, but we've come against complications (as one would working with blogger) and I have to decide on some things blah blah. anyway, it has kind of make me all lackadaisical about blogging AND I've been this little social butterfly lately, so all of that combined and you know how it goes. anyway, i hope YOU are doing well and I have a quiet weekend ahead so hopefully will be catching up!

Abandoned Winter Olympics Site: Sarajevo

Monday, February 24, 2014

There's something so poignant about these haunting photos of the abandoned winter olympics site in Sarajevo from 1984.  Sarajevo is such a special city to mark as he spent summers there in college, and later took me back to visit - the city and the people have such a beautiful heart..

And hello btw! Did you like my blog break last week? I got back from Berlin Sunday night and catapulted in to the week of no organization, lots of last minute plans and general laziness, ha!
