While likely a glorified diary, when I look back on this blog, I find myself reminiscing. Not just from the things I have shared, but also from what I remember as to what was happening behind the scenes and between posts.
Since my post last September many things have happened. We bought a house and moved to Baltimore County in Maryland. I also started a new job in a relatively new field: digital marketing. Full of excitement, I underestimated these changes, foolishly thinking they would be easy adjustments (you’d think I’d learn one day). With all these changes, in addition to holidays and events however, I’ve been floundering to establish a workable routine- a sense of normalcy. It’s really only been these past few weeks or so that I have started to feel more comfortable in a routine, as I attempt to balance out work, home and creative life. As I’ve been finding, after all the “Have To” Do’s, it is surprisingly difficult to fit in the creative aspects. I had been focusing so hard on everything that needed to be done that I have found I’ve been missing out on the things that truly bring me joy.
In an effort to focus back in on some quiet time, I finally joined our local library and have started working more with “hands-on” projects again. Our weekends have begun to become accented with regular visits to the farmers markets and a semblance of routine.
Still, it’s a work in progress.
