I am cleaning up my drafts and found this one. Written over a month ago but better late than never.
Over the past six years, I have found this space of mine morph into many different things. I started it simply as a place to share my style. Women all over the internet were posting how they expressed themselves with their own personal style and I fell in love with that. I find great beauty in this kind of creativity. From there, I started to share some house projects/DIY. I enjoy decorating our home and like sharing ideas with others. The highlight of this was being featured on A Beautiful Mess with a house tour. My biggest feat however, has been what this blog has turned into for me, a kind of ongoing letter to me and my family, with words and pictures that capture life as we know it. Six years captured. From Max's birth and all of his firsts, to holidays to even the mundane days, I have carved out a little digital space to preserve these amazing years that are moving further and further away from me. So, as we come to the end of a yet another snowstorm, on yet another bitter cold night, I share my most recent letter, this one to Mother Nature, as she reminds us all who is boss.
Dear Mother Nature,
We will try harder. We will do better.
