Well, it’s been awhile my friends. I really did miss the blogging world these past few months but things got a little too crazy with my commitments through this little bloggy and I thought I should take a breather.
As you can see, stuff is missing from this dear ole blog. Unfortunately (as of now), I will not be continuing my Ten Buck Tuesday link parties. :( Thank you all for your involvement and encouragement last year and for making it such a hit in the blogging world.
As for this blog, I’ve decided to “go back to my blogging roots” and take it back to a personal journal and documentation of our lives. I completely understand if I lose all my readers because my life is pretty boring. I will still show my crafts and recipes but they will no longer be the main focus. Fresh starts are always nice, right?
2011 ended on a somber note for our family this year: my loving and beautiful Memaw passed away December 11, 2011 and although it still hurts every day, I know she is in a better place, healthy and happy. Learning how to cope will be an important step for me in 2012.
This year we have some big aspirations! I moved to this blog almost a year ago and had some great resolutions for 2011 (and I kept almost all of them… who am I?). So I thought if I could do so well last year, why not set some more for this year? So in true New Year’s tradition, here are my resolutions for 2012:
1. Get healthy!
2. Lose 75 lbs by our wedding (June 2013 – we kind of set a date!)
3. Save mullah for said wedding
4. Continue to earn good grades and transfer to a university this fall
5. Cook more
6. Simplify our stuff (we started this with a bang last week and donated 2 car loads of stuff!)
7. Start decorating our home in my shabby-chic-loving style
8. Landscape our backyard (including use of our new firepit)
9. Actually re-create the things I pin on Pinterest
See, I definitely was not exaggerating when I said my aspirations were big… What are your resolutions for 2012? Are you on Pinterest? If you're not, give me your email address asap so I can send you an invite - it might change your world. :)
So, stay tuned for more on adopting a healthier lifestyle, planning a wedding, cooking, making our house a home and loving life in Kentucky.
