Out of the Bud
Hello, my lovely blogging friends. How are you keeping? I have a lot of catching up to do with you...I've been away awhile.
I feel as though I have been cheating. On my blog that is. You see, I spent the last week creating a new blog. Not so I can leave this one behind, because I quite like this one, and I love each and every one of you who come to visit, even you quiet ones who sneak in on tippy toes and choose not to leave your words behind. I am so grateful that you have found my space here and that you visit in whatever way works best for you.
This new blog is for my photography business. A place to put my portrait work. For clients to come and get a sneak peek at the photos from their session. I will create lifestyle posts there too, so that people can get to know me on a more personal level, but I just couldn't find a way to merge this blog and that one into one. They are entirely different.
So now I have two blogs to maintain. *gulp* What have I gotten myself into? But as daunting as it seems to me right now, I am very excited about it. So much so, I bought myself some pretty little white flowers today to put in my windowsill. Aren't they lovely? A quiet celebration. And perhaps, my soul is longing a wee bit for spring as well. And it's only January.
But so far, this year is full of hope....and it has already gifted me with new things. I feel balanced and happy, and that happens when I stay connected...to friends, to my passions, to my love for my work, to my health. I have made no resolutions, and I have not come up with a word for this coming year like so many of you do. I think I am someone who will choose freedom at any opportunity. I don't like being confined to a word, or to a task I have committed myself to. I prefer a more gentle approach. I will do what I choose to do at any given moment, and I give myself the space to change my mind. But I have general ideas about how I would like to shape the coming year. I think, most of all, I want to be kinder to myself. Just that one thing. How I will do this will evolve with the seasons, I am sure. And I love that.
So, I do hope you will visit my new space from time to time. I would be so happy to see you there. And I will make my way to you very very soon. I can't wait to immerse myself once again in your words, your images and your uniquely creative ways that inspire me so deeply.
See you soon!
