Hey, stranger

To readers new and old but especially to the dedicated, I’ve recently realized I owe you a bit of an explanation as to why my writing has come to a halt.  I could blame it on the busy holiday season, on getting caught up at work, on loss of motivation, no inspiration, or just plain laziness. But the real reason is I’ve been focusing on more important things. Different things. Me things. But all good things, I promise you.

The approaching New Year is full of new beginnings and positive change, all of which I welcome with an open mind. I’m hitting the refresh button, taking a mulligan, or whatever you want to call it. Either way, my life is changing and part of that change does not include keeping up with a daily blog.

My passion for design, fashion, and all things beautiful still thrives, but I’ll just be pursuing them in a different way.  There will come a day when I’ll be ready to hop back on this site and just write my heart out and share all of the great inspiration I’ve found, but until that day comes I ask you to be patient and understanding while the blogging takes a backseat.

I part for now with many thanks and appreciation for your continued support. I have always enjoyed writing and I always will. A Happy New Year to all.

Victorian Homes

I love the antique charm and magic of victorian homes. The layered details and woodwork allow for variety in paint colors and create quite the curb appeal.
