For most of my adult life I have been the overachiever, one step ahead, juggling a million little balls, usually well. The last year has decimated any sense that I had of being on top of things. I feel like I barely have time to live as a hip homemaker, let alone remember to take photos and then find the time to sit down and type a few clever and inspiring paragraphs. From morning sickness in the afternoon to the intense exhaustion of late term pregnancy, from birth recovery to working mom, I just can't seem to keep up.
I'm not saying it has been bad, in fact it has been magical and wonderful and life-altering, but it has been hard to keep up the pace I kept before.
This time, I am promising no new endeavors, no crazy schemes. I am just going to try to do the things I love and share them with you because I enjoy it. i miss it...
So here is hoping for a year of more balance and pleasant homemaking... and maybe a few more gin and tonics as well.
