What I'm Doing on my Summer Vacation

I don't think I have to state the obvious: I abandoned the blogosphere. And it's felt pretty good. No longer do I think about what I might share publicly, but instead focus on all that is happening in my private life. I would love to share every little detail about our fabulous summer vacation, our little boy's first birthday, and my obsession with ridiculously overpriced side tables I would love to have for our living room. But I'm not sure I want to share all of that with just anyone with internet access to see. Of course, I couldn't resist sharing just one final pic.

I started blogging to fill a creative void and for a good while, it felt right. It made me seek all the good things going on in Pittsburgh and elsewhere. We got out and participated in them. And then, I quit my uncreative job and took control. I achieved my short-term goals: I am my own boss, I have creative part-time work, and I am blessed with the most wonderful little being on the planet (with a supporting and loving husband, I might add.) The gap is overly filled. 

I also feel a bit overwhelmed with all the virtual clutter in my life, via pinterest, news feeds, tweets and blogs I follow. My humble little posts can't compete. If I am going to do something in my (limited) spare time, I want to do it with purpose and passion. That being said, I am pursuing an exciting, creative (non-digital) side project, and I'm super excited to share it in the future. I'll be back. In the meantime, I'll save you one less blog to filter.

Signing off (for now),
